Join international stylist, designer, and author Sibella Court for a full day of intimate conversation. Sibella returned to her native Australia after a 10-year stint in New York where she opened a new store, The Society Inc., and began work on her bestselling books. She has most recently published her third title.

Sibella will introduce herself, her work, and her projects. She will outline and discuss her process of imagining and designing a space—including the editing process of addition and subtraction. Sibella will also teach her 10-colour palette.

Sibella will show you how to create your own palette using your own inspiration and your travels. Through demonstrations and discussion she will show how to display the things you love–but are not sure what to do with! Sibella will introduce and explain how to create a story board or story box and translate a colour palette into interiors, product lines, or other areas.


Sibella Court is an interior stylist and creative director: from vision and concept through to direction and creation. Her most recent spaces include El Loco, 30 Knots, Upstairs at the Beresford, MsG’s, York 75, Bistrode CBD, and Private Dining at Ivy.

After 10 years living and working in New York, she returned home to Sydney, Australia, to launch her brand and shop: The Society Inc. Her store is home to hardware, haberdashery, and treasures collected while adventuring into terrains less trodden.

In New York she has styled for Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Saks on Fifth Ave, Pottery Barn, Target, Anthropologie, and West Elm. Publications showing her work include Gourmet, Marie Claire, and Vogue Living. Her other projects include a nail polish line, hardware design, and a 110-colour paint range.

She has accumulated over twenty years of global inspiration from frequent trips to South East Asia, India, Europe, the Middle East, the United States, Central America, and Australia. She travels alone and with the Anthropologie inspiration team.

Sibella is also a best-selling author. Her award-winning titles include: Etcetera: Creating Beautiful Interiors with the Things You Love, The Stylist’s Guide to NYC and Nomad: A Global Approach to Interior Style. She has written extensively for publications such as CountryStyle, Grazia, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue Living.
