Etcetera: Creating Beautiful Interiors with the Things You Love
Packed with tips of the interior stylist's trade, Etcetera is a lavishly photographed interiors book in which every image demonstrates a clear and easily replicable principle that will help transform a room without the need for expensive and permanent renovation. Author Sibella Court's style is very global, combining contemporary elements with antiques and junk-shop finds, textile fragments, wallpapers, collectables and ephemera etc. Etcetera draws on four of Sibella's favourite colour themes as a framework for the display of her impeccable eye for detail and her bowerbird tendencies. Each section will draw the reader into Sibella's world of colour and texture, through inspirational room settings to the most intimate of details. Think of opening Pandora's box, or indeed, Darwin's cabinet of curiosities and in turn opening yourself to a world of new possibilities. Key points: focuses on styling rather than decorating, and as such is the book for these changing economic times. It's about thrift and imagination. It celebrates the individual and the personal rather than the wholesale adoption of a 'look'; Sibella Court's philosophy is an organic and sustainable one, encouraging recycling and creatively re-using rather than consuming new resources.
