Etcetera : Creating Beautiful Interiors with the Things You Love Hardback
Packed with tips of the interior stylist's trade, Etcetera is a lavishly photographed interiors book which demonstrates inspiring principles that will help transform a room without the need for expensive and permanent renovation.
Author Sibella Court's style is very global, combining contemporary elements with antiques and junk-shop finds, textile fragments, wallpapers, collectables and ephemera.
Etcetera draws on five of Sibella's favourite colour themes as a framework for the display of her impeccable eye for detail and her bowerbird tendencies.
Each section will draw the reader into Sibella's world of colour and texture, through inspirational room settings to the most intimate of details.
Think of opening Pandora's box, or indeed, Darwin's cabinet of curiosities and in turn opening yourself to a world of new possibilities.

Review by GirlMisanthrope
This book is timeless and will be a resource of inspiration for years to come. It comes in luscious tones of sepia, cream, and charcoal. The pages are thick and there are vellum inserts. Are you a Magpie or a Bower bird? Then you have found a kindred spirit.If you have a love for vintage, for tattered, for well-loved, previously loved, for wood and other natural materials, and are uber-casual,this book is for you. If I could give it 8 stars I would!There is a great resource section in the back.
Review by wyvernfriend
While it's interesting it's like the 101 Creative touches book, a good book for some inspiration but not really my kind of thing. I like some of it, but some of the rest isn't really my type of thing, I like the colour schemes but sometimes trying to read the text was very difficult, there wasn't enough contrast for my comfort.A good place if just looking to find out what you don't want and sometimes to get inspiration of how to play with things you have and treasure.
