Have you got your hands on Sibella Court's new book Nomad yet? A feast of beautiful images, a veritable orgy of fabulous objects, Sibella's latest is as stunning as her award winning Etcetera. Image after inspiring image, tales of travels and of incorporating treasures into everyday life. It's globetrotting and daydreaming from the comfort of your lounge chair. Life is so much more beautiful seen through Sibella's eyes. Nomad is a perfect example of why the printed book will always exist. As wonderful as the images are on screen the experience is taken to a whole other level by just sitting and feeling this tactile book, letting your eyes wander (and wonder) from page to page. The images here are by Sibella's brother the über talented Chris Court. His lush, colour rich shots convey Sibella's bower bird aesthetic perfectly. Am I gushing? Yes. This is a must have for those who love a visual feast.

Tricia it's the knotted chair by Marcel Wanders produced by Cappellini. You won't get much change out of 4 grand though :(

@Tricia Rose - I think it's Marcel Wanders' Knotted Chair.

I recently went to an author's chat/ book launch where Sibella talked about the book an answered questions. It was so interesting! She was lovely and I'm convinced she has the dream job! Great books :)

Thank you for showing these inspiring pictures! As for my current life situation - I really like the one with crib set up in the living room - it looks easy and good, not destroying the overall look, but adding a funny detail to it!
And that picture with stairs next to red&white wall - great work!

Anyone have a line on the red and white wallpaper at the bottom of those stairs? It's amazing!!

Sibella is always a source of inspiration- such a talented lady! I cherish Etcetera and look forward to adding Nomad to my book collection.

Interesting curtains ;) And before someone starts lecturing: yes, I know about sun wheels and rune signs.

14 Dec 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTK

and apparently that should be sanskrit signs. Slap me with a wet noodle...

Lush. Reminds me of my grandma's house, but I assure you, in the best possible way.

Hello! Where can I find the wood-frame bed in pics 6 and 10? Thank you :)

15 Jul 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTeresa

I have been looking for the curtain, (that is split up half way in a triangled shape above a bed). A pinned posted it on Pinterest and I have seen the same curtain on another pin. I really love it and cannot find it through my research. I will be using it as a kitchen curtain with a old world feel. Can you help me? Can I ask humbly where you purchased the curtain? Sincerly, Debra Howell. And, Thank You!
