Sibella Court's wanderlust has made her one of the world's most sought-after stylists and creative directors. Much like her avian counterpart, the Australian bowerbird, Sibella is famous for creating interiors that entice and inspire from found objects, beloved mementos and upcycled furniture. In Bowerbird, Sibella's new book of ideas and interiors, she shares her approach to achieving unique style, a firm believer that our own collections, imparting the memories they do, are a vital part of any home.
In this, her most personal book yet, Sibella showcases her love of collecting and her own collections. From shells to vintage hardware and to portraits of moustached men, this book of practical inspiration shows you how your belongings can be a centrepiece or subtle elements that reflect your space, your apartment, your house and your passions.
