Introducing Bowerbird, the new book by Interior Stylist Sibella Court

On October 10th, 2012 by .

Inspiring Australian stylist and globetrotter Sibella Court has released her newsest book entitled Bowerbird, over the weekend. An exciting visual feast, Bowerbird looks at the art of displaying your personal collections and finds, in the wonderfully rustic style that the author has become known for featuring raw, honest and earthy collections of her own.

This new release is such an inspiring read and in my opinion cements Sibella Court as one of the masters of styling and art of display. Copies are available through The Society Inc or Amazon for all UK residents (link at the bottom of the post).

Recreating the style: Boho eclectic

On August 16th, 2012 by .

I think everyone has their own idea of what boho eclectic styling is. After all, the beauty of eclecticism is all about mixing up pieces that you love but don’t necessarily match. For a recent magazine feature I was asked to ‘recreate’ this style using a number of products of my choosing. To help me get started, I simply broke down the style in my own words, being ‘the layering of unique  pieces into a cohesive look’.

Here’s what I came up with! A collection of uniquely designed pieces with a mix of pattern and textures. What kinds of things would you include in a boho eclectic styled room?

{Colour swatch} Raspberry & Chartreuse

On May 16th, 2012 by .

In any season, particularly the cooler months, I simply can’t resist soft and earthy neutrals, but I am loving the pops of fresh berry and citrus brights seeping into design collections as of late. The unexpected bursts of colour make for great features. I might just have to add a splash of raspberry somewhere this Winter, even if it’s an inspired floral arrangement to brighten things up. Are you daring enough to incorporate these colours into your interiors?
