Stylist Sibella Court’s new book, Bowerbird, Creating beautiful interiors with the things you collect, reveals her very personal approach to collecting. Her mantra is that all ‘stuff’, like door hooks, pencils, string, labels, especially items which evoke personal memories, can make wonderful personal displays. A beautifully-designed book which will make you look at the things around you in a whole new light. (Hardie Grant Books, £26.99)
