this week the selby features the amazingly colorful home of artist Isabelle Tuchband from São Paulo, BRAZIL. Isabelle is the daughter of a French painter, and grew up among paints, canvas and paintbrushes from her father’s studio, learning since her early age how to see the world with the colors of art. her home is an eclectic and kitschy collection, almost a little bit madcap, but i like it that way! and the selby captures her colorful world perfectly.

  1. It’s funny the fact that, as I was seeing the pictures I was thinking: “What a great house, colors blast from everywhere! Wow!” And then I saw this pineapple (in the 6th photo I think on a shelf, I KNOW, no one else did) and I was like ” Oh why God, why? Why to have a pineapple as part of decoration?”

    PS. I am allergic to them, I don’t like them and I don’t want to see them anywhere. Strange you would think. Ohh yea, ohh yes!! (now after this crazy story you can continue your life! :D )

  2. Really cool! The Studio is stunning and I love all the Happy colors in her paintings which reflect her surroundings. @ Debbie: “The Pineapple” is an age-old symbol for Hospitality. You often find it painted on cupboards, carved as architectural element’s on furniture etc.. Especially on the East-Coast of the U.S.. It goes back to the Colonial Day’s.
