My Design World

the latest design hunt by habitus living magazine

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, March 11, 2012


As I glanced at my Habitus Living magazine March edition (online) I was particularly interested in the interview with interior stylist and author Sibella Court. 

Sibella's design favourites included the Sydney artist Anna-Wili Highfield, making wonderful paper sculptures of all manner of animals but predominantly birds and horses. Her impressive client list includes no other than Hermes who commissioned a series of majestic horse masks. 

It is worth also looking at her sculptures made with copper piping....quite amazing the movement she captures. 


Without doubt my favourite of her paper birds is the owl in flight.  This may have something to do with the fact that we have a beautiful large white owl that visits our Southern Highlands garden at a certain time of the year .....sadly not every year.

For those of you that don't know Sibella Court....she has a very interesting shop in Paddington and can be best described as being all about collecting and styling.....positively everything in sight.

  Her books Etcetera and Nomad showcase her talent beautifully....showing how to display your very own possessions and collections with style.  In the case of Nomad she works with the treasures and memories you have acquired while much better than poking them into a cupboard somewhere....the memories gone with them.
