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.

holding court

 

The wondeful style creator, Sibella Court is orchestrating an Emotive Interiors extravaganza workshop at Studio 3, Sun Studios Sydney.

So wish I’d got organised to sign up for this fabulous event ~ it’s booked out!

Super hands-on, in this workshop I’m going to create a set or a replica of an interior right in front of your eyes. I’ll show you the tricks of the trade, how to choose layer & get a sense of self.

 My lovely friend, Richard Ludbrook of Sun Studios is generously supplying his fabulous super-studio space.

With raw brick walls, abundant set supplies & lots of space for the lucky 65 of you who got in early, we will have fun building a set & creating a space that reflects you & your personality. We will be joined by the fabulous team of Peter Glass of Bespoke on sound & audio, his good friend on camera, Phillip Skelton & his set building gig ‘hot sets’ (he is probably the busiest set builder for stills in Sydney but he also does lots of event stuff for Havaianas & others) & other helpful members that make up Sun Studios. 

6.30pm Tuesday September 20, S2 Studios – 31 Meagher Street, Chippendale

If you are like me and missed out then we will be able to view it in action on The Society Inc website and watch the space for another upcoming super extravaganza workshop.
