Sibella Court x Materialised Fabric

Over the many years of travelling around the world, scouring flea markets and shops for vintage oddities & curiosities, I have accumulated an object library that I am constantly referencing in my design projects. This is referenced in both my Nostalgia & Seaworthy collections

NOSTALGIA COLLECTION

I delved into my vast object library to create NOSTALGIA, a collection of wallpaper & textiles, drawing reference from 19th century wallpaper samples I had picked in a Parisian flea market, & 20th century patterns I had unearthed rummaging through weekend markets across the states 

INSPIRATION

Nostalgia is steeped in my memories of my childhood & a decade living in New York. A time of dreaming up magical sets & imaginary spaces for photography campaigns & editorial stories. The designs are named after the streets I lived on and my favourite walk home to Tribeca &? later Chinatown, through Soho with its cobbled roads, cast iron front buildings and fire escapes with
soaring windows. A walk back in time in itself. For me a time of "anything can happen" and a place to create a sanctuary of your own to call home amongst the concrete jungle of NYC with its endless energy and magnetic chaos. Fond childhood memories of my grandparents lakeside house, with a lounge room
decorated with chintz on chintz, the setting for matinee movies & endless episodes of The Ghost & Mrs Muir are woven into my story.
This collection of prints and colourways can be seamlessly coordinated with my extensive paint range with Murobond Paints, TRADEWINDS tile collection with Teranova Tiles & SHIPLEY upholstered furniture pieces with Molmic, Trade orders are placed with our collaboration partner, Materialised.

SEAWORTHY COLLECTION

 

INSPIRATION

The warm East wind, Le Levant signalled the end of Winter as the writers, artists, witty conversationalists and their muses migrated from Parisian pied-à-terres, ateliers or from the States via ocean liner travel for the summer to the pebbly beaches of Antibes or the golden hills of Saint Paul-de-Vence and the surrounding villages. The Fitzgeralds, Cole Porter, Gerald & Sara Murphy and their entourage congregating at La Colombe d'Or. I imagine Zelda artiving in a petite convertible, unwrapping her hair from a silk scarf as she atrives with Jacques Lartigue capturing the moment mid-motion. After a long lunch, the lively frivolities would roll into the balmy night at the Murphy's Villa America for cocktails & dancing, leaving Scott to pen Tender is the Night. The colours in the collection conjure up imaginings of afternoons with Picasso at Antibes with some plein air painting, and oysters & baguettes are on the menu. He, of course, is dressed in his uniform of striped top, rope soled espadrilles and cotton print bandana around his neck. And joy rides along the sun soaked country roads seeking out small brocantes with the scent of dry hay, neroli, rosemary, rose geranium & mint. Dreaming up lazy days of bathing under striped fabric beach shades, the rocks absorbing the day's heat with elevated fold out rattan sun loungers, freshly made straw hats turning golden in the sun. Then as the soft breeze picks up sailing through the crystal-clear shallows of the Mediterranean to iles de Lerin for exploring and swimming.

Winter Wonderland in Overland, Tasmania

Winter Wonderland in Overland, Tasmania

The overland Track in Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain is one of the most beautifully scenic, nature-immersing hikes you can possibly do. It will reset you into the rhythm and awe of nature. I went in late April when the Tanglefoot Fagus, an endemic deciduous beech endemic to the Tassie highlands  leaves were turning and littered the track like orange & yellow snowflakes.
