Come and celebrate the launch of my next book,Bowerbird at the The Society inc.!
One big party for them all, don’t miss out and don’t hesitate to have a few glasses –
it’s a Saturday afternoon and summer is around the corner.
Sibella Court, bestselling author of Etcetera, The Stylist’s Guide to NYC and Nomad, has always been a bowerbird. This was first noticed when, at the age of three, she put together collections of shells, sequins, beads and ribbons. Like her avian counterpart, she goes far and wide to add to her collections, enjoys arranging and rearranging the pieces and, ultimately, believes that collections, containing the memories they do, are a vital part of any home.
In Bowerbird, Sibella reveals her very personal and surprising approach to collecting and collections. She shows how to procure the elements of a collection, how to organise and store them, and how to display them in creative and ever-changing ways. With the help of Bowerbird, you will view your belongings in a whole new light.

A new player to the game, I think this was one of my favourite places. It reminded me of the kind of place I might design. Although the restaurant is not quite visible from the beach (and a bit of a rocky landing, so holler & catch the attention of the tenders to come to you – these are the little boats that retrieve you from your big boats). It’s a short walk up a wooden path but cannot be missed by the giant ‘B’ that sits proudly astride. It may be my mindset of designing an island resort at present but the sand under foot, open air, fanned interior with natural woven blinds, trestle tables & a bar that shutters, won me over.
This place is fun, and fuelled by share strawberry mojitos served with giant long straws and great food. We left after lunch around 8pm and not before dancing on tables!!
Note: Camo (as in army camoflague nets – you know the ones you toss over your tank or stealth bomber to disguise it!) is all the rage in in Ibiza. I featured snow camo in Etcetera, but just wait & see where desert camo turns up in my next interior.
