Reseña del editor

Sibella Court sees the world differently. In her latest book, the stylist and bestselling author of "Etcetera" shows us how to bring our travels home with us in the most unexpected of ways. The globetrotter and treasure hunter travelled to Syria, Mexico, Italy, India and Japan to be inspired by everything from door knobs and street signs to roadside shrines and household brooms - things that most of us wouldn't even notice. In "Nomad", the ideas, photographs and mementos she collected are used to inspire room settings, illustrating simple, practical and surprising ways to be reminded of your travel experiences. Sibella's approach is not about recreating a whole look but about adding and subtracting, rearranging and recycling, transforming and rethinking to make interior spaces that reflect your personality, experiences and lifestyle. "Nomad" will help open your eyes to what's around you and fuel your imagination long after the suitcase is unpacked. Key points include: room settings are shot in private homes rather than a studio to show that any decorative background can be restyled with travel inspirations; Sibella Court's philosophy is an organic and sustainable one, encouraging recycling and creatively re-using rather than consuming new resources. This title includes a list of Sibella's favourite shops and a list of the unique hotels she stayed in while researching the countries in this book.

Biografía del autor

After living and working as an interior stylist in NYC for 10 years, Sibella Court was drawn back home to summer days by the beach in Sydney, where she opened her haberdashery meets hardware store, The Society Inc., a home for all the flea market finds and artisan pieces she's collected and uncovered over years of globetrotting. Sibella, who has appeared on Keith Johnson's show, Man Shops Globe, on the Sundance Channel, designs commercial interiors for the Merivale Group and contributes to InsideOut, Vogue Living and Harper's Bazaar. Her first book is the bestseller Etcetera: Creating beautiful interiors with the things you love. She has also created a 120-palette paint range for Murobond and a hardware range exclusively for Anthropologie and The Society Inc. Sibella is constantly on the lookout for beautiful and curious things.

Formato: Tapa dura
If you have Etcetera (first book of this type) then you pretty much have Nomad, the same ideas are rehashed except she used 5 countries of inspiration Mexico, Italy, Syria, India and Japan (about 10-15 pages each, some pages more jumbled than others). Her ideas or sources of ideas are repeated in parts, and her instructions on design is small. A few sentences per a page (not a big deal as this is her style of writing), but a note if you are expecting deeper information on nomad life and wares, this is not the book. This is more a travel log of what she has seen and about herself (an excessive use of "I" overload). If you are new to Sibella Court or like the countries mentioned this may be an okay book, but I think Etcetera is the better book as it has more design and better use of props and objects in home design. Some good things about the book include the choice of paper and binding, and the Japan chapter was a nice start.

HASH(0xa9f77f60) de un máximo de 5 estrellas So beautiful. So awkward. 20 de diciembre de 2011

First, the good:
The book is beautiful and hefty. The cover is thick and ornate, and the pages are a pleasure to turn. Beautiful photographs with beautiful lighting illustrate beautiful ideas. This is the kind of book you want to snuggle down with at the end of a long day, in your deepest armchair, with a glass of wine.

The average: I bought it because I live in Japan (the first country featured) and was looking for new ideas. I learned a few new things, but this book is primarily to indulge the senses and not to inform. You won't find explanations of most items featured. So if you want to search on ebay for the Japanese bamboo ladle pictured on page 56, you had better already know that it is a bamboo ladle used in tea ceremony. As another reviewer mentioned, the book reads like Sibella Court's travel diary. If the navel-gazing becomes too much, you can just skip the text (there's not much) and enjoy the eye candy.

The bad: Unfortunately, the 4th country profiled is Syria. I'm going to guess this is just very unfortunate timing and that the book was already well on its way to being published before the uprising. The chapter is well-photographed and fascinating, but definitely uncomfortable to read in light of current events. Hopefully, in a few years time, there will have been a happy ending and readers will be able to follow her travels there. There is also some awkwardness with her romanticized views of these countries ("I have had a longtime love affair with the romantic side of colonialism...", etc). Obviously, this is a book on design and not history, but her failure to even hint at the problematic caused a bit of squirming. On my part, at least.

I really enjoyed this book. Both of Court's earlier books were given to me as gifts, from artist friends, and those books set the stage for my anticipation for what she would do next. I thought this book was a viable and interesting follow-up to her earlier projects.....not simply a mere
"warmed over" version of them, as offered by some reviewers. I was not expecting some kind of ultra-practical Design Manual from her -- I think she has built her brand on her role as an inveterate collector, gatherer, "a person who notices", and uber stylist/stager of Great Stuff. The writing style is,
alas, a bit off-hand and spontaneous -- but text is hardly the point with a book like this. To me, the strength of this book is......Once you look through it, you will be reminded of the joys of travel, and how wonderful it is to spend some time in a different culture and hit the "Refresh" button. Her solutions for decor and staging are about bringing things out of the drawers, placing them around in new fresh ways, and then re-vamping and re-imagining it on a regular basis. This book isn't for people who feel they need to follow a Manual for decorating -- but I would recommend it to creative people who want to live in a home that has verve, individuality and authentic vibrancy. (In addition, I really thought the production aspect of the book was excellent with more-than-usual care given to page design, paper stock, embossed covers, etc. A treat for the eyes.)

This book has a beautiful quality about it, it is printed on beautiful paper and the photographs are beautifully shot. The only complaint I would have is that for an interior decoration book there aren't many photographs of completed rooms, it is more like design mock-ups. I would have liked to have seen more interior shots.

HASH(0xa911e6f0) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Very disappointing 24 de febrero de 2012
Por L. Zea - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
The front page and the title of this book seemed so promising but essentially this is nothing but what appears to be a published ibook of someone's travelogue. Court refers to herself over and over again and "I" is used on every other page. The ways in which she talks about some of the countries seem fairy-talish and a little naive at times with a very romanticized overload. For design advice it is not useful at all as it is mainly pretty pictures. A close up of a pair of shoes or a cute picture of a half a bicycle does nothing to understand how to create interesting interiors. Other ideas are not very functional - like pretty wall paper rolled out on the floor by a bed or a cute wood sofa covered with prizes. This book reminds me of a book you would make for a friend after your trip to show off where you went - but as a global approach to interior design? I don't think so. A lot of pretty pictures, on pretty paper in a nice binding.
