Je promène ce livre avec moi depuis quelques mois : table de chevet, plage, atelier... il est de tous les voyages et inaugure tout naturellement ma rubrique Livres...
Recouvert de craft imprimé, couverture cartonnée, gros papier épais, son aspect et son toucher sont particuliers... On découvre avec délice en le parcourant des photos de couleurs denses et mat, des textes souvent courts et tapés à la machine, de jolies superpositions de pages en calque
Ce livre est une suite de visites et se pose comme un cahier d'inspirations : nuanciers, cabinets de curiosité, accumulations insolites, ambiances... à feuilleter encore et encore (minimalistes s'abstenir!)

3.0 étoiles sur 5You really have to love this style to love the book6 juin 2010
Par makiwi - Publié sur Amazon.com
I received this book as a gift. I just bought an old house that needs 'doing' from top to bottom, and there are parts of this book that are quite useful, such as one of the central ideas of putting together your own unique color palette (though the author does strongly hint that her color palette is really the best...)
However...you should be warned that this book has a very idiosyncratic style, both in content and the way it's laid out. The style put forth here by the author is a sort of a shabby chic meets tiki bar meets the casbah meets raiding your favorite "ethnic"-Asian import store meets flea market...kind of thing. Very handmade, probably needing quite a lot of maintenance and discipline to keep it from looking like a big mess. The design of the book and pages themselves reflect this aesthetic.
If you dream of moving into an Anthropologie-controlled world, or love raiding vintage shops and flea markets for your home and your wardrobe, this is the book for you. If you're just not sure about what you like in terms of interior design, this book *might* be for you...it might push you in one direction or another. However, if you're into modern/contemporary or minimalist styles, and dislike clutter (even if it's artistic clutter) run the other way fast.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Beautifully layed out and with thoughtful details16 janvier 2010

This book is definitely not for novice. It inspires from a different level and is not a "how-to" book or a "before and after" magazine. It shows the creation process of a true artist, in a honest way. I love the way the book was produced, with vellum sheets and beautiful typography. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Etcetera: Creating Beautiful Interiors with the Things You Love by Sibella Court17 janvier 2010

Etc. is not the average book of decorating tips and household hints, but it is a beautiful guide for artists, stylists, and designers. One can be inspired by the texture, objects, arrangements, layouts and color. Etc. is just a beautiful book to dream over.

3.0 étoiles sur 5I didn't get anything out of it personally19 mars 2011
Par mumzonline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Hmmmm, well, I didn't quite know what to expect with this book. To be honest, I ordered it purely out of curiosity. I have read many a review complimenting the book as a must have. My first impression at actually holding the book was WOW this is a beautiful book, even before opening it. It is a whopping 256 pages, brown paper wrapped, vintage/recycled, typewriter text style book. Last night I read it from cover to cover and I feel let down. I didn't get that "one thing" from it nor the urge to bookmark a page. I felt there was repetition to the stories of her mother traveling in her search for fabric, and really Sibella, brown sticky tape to hang a picture? The presentation of the pages was inviting, but I found it hard to really study the pictures because they all seemed so muted to me. Her style is not unappealing to me. However, I made no connection with the book. I will try and read it again in a few months and see whether I missed something. I want to love this book and am so far disappointed. I give 10 out of 10 for the book design.

I bought this book for the pictures. I kept it for the inspiration. There's just enough information here to get the wheels turning, to see inside the stylist's creative brain, to spark ideas of one's own. This is, by and large, my favorite book on styling (second only *maybe* to Interior Alchemy, but I think this may actually be better, since there's more to it).
