About the book
Packed with tips of the interior stylist's trade, Etcetera is a lavishly photographed interiors book which demonstrates inspiring principles 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. Etcetera draws on five 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.
