The Selby

Some strangers are just intriguing, are they not?  I come across people all the time that are just plain interesting to me.  I mean yes, I don’t know them and no, I’m not looking to be their new best friend, but it’s not entirely uncommon for me to make assumptions about their life based on literally no information.  That duo passing by me in Target…are they dating?  Married?  Relatives?  Friends?  If they capture my attention long enough, chances are I’m gonna guess…and maybe take some creative license in my conclusion (i.e.- he secretly loves her and thinks they’re on some sort of date, but she just sees him as a friend).  I came across a website the other day that fed right into this behavior and I’ve gotta tell you, I’m now pretty much obsessed with it.  It’s called The Selby and it gives readers a sneak peek into the lives of particularly interesting strangers (just the type I’d be wondering about) via a few pictures of them in their home.  They feature famous folks, professionally creative geniuses, and anyone else they feel might offer an interesting point of view (decorating or otherwise).  Maybe I’m just nosy, but I’m literally enamored with this website.  Here are a few that jumped out at me, check out the rest by clicking here.
