Easy Living

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. Sibella's pad when she lived in NY. Every little nook has a narrative to share and although the space is loft like it actually feels snug and cosy. Lovely hey
