Product description

Sibella Court sees the world differently. In her latest book, the stylist and bestselling author of "Etcetera" shows us how to bring our travels home with us in the most unexpected of ways. The globetrotter and treasure hunter travelled to Syria, Mexico, Italy, India and Japan to be inspired by everything from door knobs and street signs to roadside shrines and household brooms - things that most of us wouldn't even notice. In "Nomad", the ideas, photographs and mementos she collected are used to inspire room settings, illustrating simple, practical and surprising ways to be reminded of your travel experiences. Sibella's approach is not about recreating a whole look but about adding and subtracting, rearranging and recycling, transforming and rethinking to make interior spaces that reflect your personality, experiences and lifestyle. "Nomad" will help open your eyes to what's around you and fuel your imagination long after the suitcase is unpacked. Key points include: room settings are shot in private homes rather than a studio to show that any decorative background can be restyled with travel inspirations; Sibella Court's philosophy is an organic and sustainable one, encouraging recycling and creatively re-using rather than consuming new resources. This title includes a list of Sibella's favourite shops and a list of the unique hotels she stayed in while researching the countries in this book.

Author information

After living and working as an interior stylist in NYC for 10 years, Sibella Court was drawn back home to summer days by the beach in Sydney, where she opened her haberdashery meets hardware store, The Society Inc., a home for all the flea market finds and artisan pieces she's collected and uncovered over years of globetrotting. Sibella, who has appeared on Keith Johnson's show, Man Shops Globe, on the Sundance Channel, designs commercial interiors for the Merivale Group and contributes to InsideOut, Vogue Living and Harper's Bazaar. Her first book is the bestseller Etcetera: Creating beautiful interiors with the things you love. She has also created a 120-palette paint range for Murobond and a hardware range exclusively for Anthropologie and The Society Inc. Sibella is constantly on the lookout for beautiful and curious things.
