Yoshiko Kajitani's Tokyo Apartment

Our love affair with The Selby has been well-documented, and it continues mainly because they feature homes that throw all convention out the window. Our favorite example is fashion designer Yoshiko Kajitani's apartment in Tokyo: it feels like one big closet, ready for a Grace Coddington photo editorial for Vogue.

Having a lot of clothes and accessories in a small Tokyo apartment means getting creative with where to store it all. Kajitani ended up using every possible hanging surface available: in the living room, above the TV, spilling over to the bedroom, hanging on the backs of doors...

While having a home like this certainly isn't for everyone, it seems to fit Kajitani's lifestyle perfectly. As a point of inspiration, seeing homes that deconstruct the conventions of "living room", "dining room", etc. has us considering how we might use our spaces differently to make it fit our lifestyle better.
