I brought Sibella Court’s new book on the weekend (Etc) and spent a lovely few hours flicking through and flagging images. Sibella is a stylist one of the best there is in fact. Having lived in NY for 10 years she recently relocated back home to Australia, opened a store called Society Inc and released a book.What Sibella is fabulous at doing is collecting and then curating her finds into beautiful vignettes in both her store and her home. She creates three-dimensional nooks that are distinctive and beautiful. Even if you don’t particularly adhere to Sibella’s style it’s a fab book to get inspired by. It will make you look at any blank wall and think yikes – dull, dull, dull!
I prefer a slightly more funked up glamorous vibe to my interiors but the fabulous thing is the common thread that runs through the book, the idea that your home shouldn’t be a showroom. It should be relaxed and liveable, it should stimulate the senses and tantalise the mind. A haven that you long to come home to at the end of each day and when you nail it believe me you will never want to leave.
