an english woman in new york.
by victoria comment



i adore the the selby so i’m always excited when he’s photographed someone i admire, and today was elated to see british Style writer and interior designer rita konig featured. looks like rita invited photographer todd selby in for an intimate look at her very colorfully charming and british-looking manhattan apartment. i’ve long been a fan of rita, since her days at domino magazine, and now she’s back at T Magazine sharing more design inspiration. normally Living in London, rita also keeps a new york apartment and it’s there that we’re allowed one of the selby’s always very personal sneak peeks. from cabbage roses to a lovely library, i’m smitten by all. have a look at the full tour on the selby.

  1. Rita surely lives in style. I loved her feminine style with so many colors and flowers around her. I adore that large painting with a dark background right above the fireplace…that could be died for. Thanks for sharing Victoria.

  2. I love how Selby captures the atmosphere of the homes he photographs! I’ve been following his website for a while and I’m always eager to see what’s coming next. This apartment is specially beautiful!

  3. The Selby is my crack! As much as I LOVE the site I get a real satisfaction of flipping through the book! Just yesterday morning I was going through it for the millionth time with coffee in hand. I always get something new out of it. It’s so inspiring, quirky and funny and often leaves me curious and hungry for more. Glad he did one on Rita! She is one of the first girls’ I noticed from one Domino mag to the next. I was seduced and loved her small charming space, I remember it by heart. She made me realize that using some pink in a space is okay!!

  4. is this the same apartment that was featured in domino? the furnishings have all changed since then.

    i love her style!

  5. I’m a big fan of Rita. All the stuff she wrote on T Magazine blog was like a decorating law to me. I tried most of her ideas at home and she was always right. Love her style!

  6. I have so loved reliving my 9th St apartment this week! I LOVE The Selby and am just so excited to be on it. Thought I would drop a line to say my first column is up on T Online this weekend. Am in a coffee shope writing my posts at the moment. Have gone back to T! Am very excited as I missed it while I was at WSJ.
    Thanks so much for posting, Rita x

  7. I’m a fan of Rita’s as well! If you’re familiar with her mother’s style (I think Domino or Elle Decor UK did a story on it), then you can see that influence, but, Rita’s style comes through in this home. It’s so colorful and unabashedly English :)
