nomad :: armchair wanderings

Inspired by travels across the globe, stylist Sibella Court’s latest book ‘Nomad’, is a curated collection of inspirational images of spaces and objects, rich in colour and texture. It’s a favourite Christmas book!

“I have created a beautiful photographic collection of travel shots and styled spaces to show how to bring your travels home in the most unexpected of ways. It will sit comfortably beside ‘Etcetera’ and is brimming with decorating tips and inspiring pictures.

I globetrot-ed and treasure hunted to Syria, Mexico, Italy, India and Japan. I was influence by everything from door knobs and street signs to roadside shrines and household brooms – many things that often go unnoticed. I use the ideas, photographs and mementos from my travels to inspire room settings in stunning private residences through simple, practical and surprising ways showing that any decorative background can be restyled with travel touches.” Sibella

Exquisite chinoiserie-style wallpaper jostles against piles of delicately detailed handmade ceramics; elsewhere, a white, tasselled hamman towel hangs over a long table dressed with bowls in hand-carved wood and palest eau de nil enamel, brown glass and handmade soaps. If you are the sort of person who enjoys creating vignettes in your home – playing with details, tweaking combinations of much-loved possessions – Nomad will provide a rich source of style inspiration.

Following on from Etcetera and The Stylists Guide NYC, Sibella has wandered the world to capture a diversity of interior inspiration.
