With a dearth of knowledge of interiors, textiles, homewares and history, author, stylist and world traveller Sibella Court knows her way around the average Australian kitchen.
If you’re renovating your kitchen or decorating a space and wondering how to get that special touch to make it unique to you, that certain something to give it character and personality that takes a space from finished to fabulous, Sibella is your gal.
A collector and self-confessed Bowerbird, Sibella applies an eclectic touch to her own range of homewares and hardware for the home. Inspired by history, handmade in the present day by skilled artisans, the objects hark back to the tools of yesteryear – adapted to modern day uses and decorating styles.
“A celebration of the characteristics of metal and the magic that happens when humble raw materials are shaped and beaten into something new.”Sibella Court
Drawer handles, hooks, brackets and hardware hewn from zinc, brass and blackened steel are the stuff of life and have the capacity to bring character into the spaces we inhabit every day. Sibella has an innate sense of the practical and is discerning in her choice of objects that have already stood the test of time so we know they will endure, both in terms of style and functionality.
With names like “flotsam” and “jetsam”, something as simple as a towel rack or drawer pull become beautiful objects in the home to be treasured daily.
Here's our pick of her latest injection to her range, ‘Smith-Made’ in collaboration with Colo Forge which may just spark a renewed interest in toasting marshmallows by the fire...
