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.
