i absolutely adore sites like The Selby and Freunde von Fruenden that let us peek into the homes of (mostly) ordinary people. the kind of spaces that won’t necessarily be featured in a fancy interior magazine, where pets are allowed to chill on the furniture and rooms aren’t perfectly immaculate. The Locals is another happy discovery that showcases the apartments of people living in Moscow.


  1. thank you for a great hint, i was very suprised that this are moscow interiors – unpretentious and intelligent.

  2. It’s always interesting to see how people decorate their homes “in real life” – thanks for sharing

  3. Oh,thank you for this.Russian culture and language is quite close to my heart and this site is a total gem.

  4. I love those glass bottles and wilted flowers. Remnants of something lovely, still lovely.

  5. Lovely! I want to live in each of these spaces. This is giving me a long list of ideas for my own place (someday soon, I hope!). Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  6. and awesome photography does help! These sites are my favourite too :)


  7. what a great site, thanks for sharing. I wish I could read russian (or if google translate could actually translate).

  8. this is awesome, the thing i love about this kind of site is that they show real places from day to day life, so it’s not like all the stuff have been put in place on purpose for styling interior mags. i only know the selby but have never heard of the other 2 sites, going to stroll around what they’ve got now! thanks for sharing!!
