Présentation de l'éditeur

Sibella Court is bestselling author (Etcetera, Nomad, The Stylist’s Guide to NYC) and a renowned interior stylist and creative director who has styled for such retail giants as Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Saks on Fifth Ave, Pottery Barn, and Target, as well as for publications like Gourmet, Marie Claire, and Vogue Living. Often referred to as a “bowerbird”—an Australian avian known for decorating her nest with all manner of eclectic  treasures—Sibella now offers a wealth of ideas on how to incorporate the things you collect and are passionate about into your home’s design to create beautiful and evocative interiors. With gorgeous photography by her brother, commercial photographer Chris Court, Sibella’s The Life of a Bowerbird showcases her unique eclectic vision in this gift for “bowerbirds” everywhere.

Quatrième de couverture

In The Life of a Bowerbird, Sibella Court reveals her very personal and surprising approach to collecting and collections. She shows how to procure the elements of a collection, how to organize and store them, and how to display them in creative and ever-changing ways. With the help of The Life of a Bowerbird, you will view your belongings in a whole new light.

A bowerbird is an Australian native bird that builds a reedy ground nest and goes to extraordinary lengths to decorate it with "stolen" goods & found objects like shells, bones, pegs, & shiny milk caps.

The Quality Continues 18 octobre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Similar to the other books by Sibella Court, this one is gorgeous. Attention to detail is the key aspect of "Bowerbird." From the beautiful covers, ribbon bookmark, thick paper, and stunning photography, this is a joy. I love the photos of the arranged objects, especially the books and ephemera. I am never disappointed with her books. Be cautioned, however, that this is not a design book with tips and instruction. It is basically a photography book very light on the text. Highly recommended.

Staging & Styling Prompts 5 janvier 2013
Par LKP - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have mixed feelings about this book. On the plus side, I like the "extra effort" presentation of the book, including an embossed cover, quality paper, ribbon book mark and handsome leather-like spine. I also have the previous books by Sibella Court, so I was familiar with her personal aesthetic -- and was eager to see more of her suggestions for creating eclectic tableaus, using all of my "stuff". Personally, I like her "anthropolgie" vibe, and I relate to some of her comments......For instance: "I love a mad mantle!". Well, I can't imagine myself actually saying that phrase.....but I really do know what she means, and completely agree. I am thinking back to the evolving "mad mantle" in the Sixties movie "Darling" with Julie Christie. The changing tableau on the mantle provided a visual record of what happened throughout the movie, and the image has stayed with me. Decor can have THAT kind of personal appeal -- it can be a temporary/shifting reflection of your state of mind; an ever-changing gathering of stuff, from the ridiculous to the sublime. That is Court's strong point, as a visual taste-maker, and I think her books provide great idea "prompts" that anyone can adapt to their own aesthetic. While I did not find the preponderance of taxidermy to be a distraction throughout the book -- I take issue with the end papers. One opens the book to a large needlessly-discouraging photograph of dead birds, tagged and laying in rows. In the whole wide world of images that could have been used for the end papers.....This would have been my last choice.

This book is beautiful... 18 octobre 2012
Par J. Nathan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
...it really is. The cover has amazing detail, the binding is leather (or pleather, not sure but either way it's a nice detail), and it is just a hint at what is inside this book. Each page is full of neutral colors, vintage and antique collections displayed beautifully. The book is not heavy on text, but the pictures are rich and dreamy, inspiring, and complex and simple all at the same time. The colors are muted and soft and the collections include items like vintage glass, scissors, wood bobbins of thread, tools, taxidermy, specimens, old wood, anything you could possibly collect that is old and special. I can see my many collections of flea market finds, beads, and old things in the pages of this book and the inspiration is endless.

A joke 8 juin 2013
Par F. Buehler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book must be a joke. It's beautifully produced, a gorgeous "keep-your-place" ribbon and all, with the occasional exception of dark text over dark photos. But really - she "collects" tape, brown paper, string, and asks the wait-staff at a restaurant to clean her oyster shells so she can "collect" them after a memorable lunch? And photos of dead birds (bird skins normally collected for scientific purposes by museums and universities) - on the inside front and back covers - when the title is "The Life of a Bowerbird." I was looking for ideas on displaying arrays of objects, and I don't object to bones, rocks, etc. But all she does is pile up paper clips, nails, wads of tissue paper, and call it interior design. Awful book.

Too many dead things 2 novembre 2012
Par kitty kat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have all of her books and this is my least favorite. Dead birds, dead seahorses and stuffed owls...too many dead things. It just made me feel bad and I didn't want to turn the pages because I was afraid of what sad thing I would see next. Ninety percent of the book is fine but I wish I would have looked at this before I ordered it. Her other books are far better on many levels...color and clarity included. Still, her books are always interesting and I'm sure other people will enjoy this one.
