Find inspiration in Sibella Court's Imaginarium

Stylist, author, TV presenter, designer, globetrotter Sibella Court is a woman who wears many hats, inspiring people all over the world one creative endeavour at a time. When we heard she was releasing a new book, we were excited to see more of her trademark organic, global style and we can certainly confirm her latest tome, Imaginarium - a compendium of inspiration, delivers. A beautiful collection of colour-themed images (each with their own story) this is the perfect book to keep on your coffee table and pour over with the luxury of time and a cup of tea. Scroll on to see some of our favourite images and head here to pre-order a copy of the book, due to launch July, 2018.
