Sibella Court's China Town Apartment

Hi guys, how was your weekend? Mine was spent watching repeats of The Antiques Road Trip (great show) and eating in the tiny Hand and Heart restaurant in Nottingham, so was lovely all round! What did you get up to?
I thought I would start the week with a particularly lovely house tour from New York. This gorgeous little apartment is home to stylist Sibella Court and is located in central China Town. The loft apartment was converted from an old textile workshop and the tin ceiling and metal pipes have been kept as a reminder of this. Sibella has also referenced the immediate area in which she lives with lots of Chinese paper lanterns clustered together. Lets have a nosy around.
I particularly like (and am slightly jealous of!) her vintage collection of butterflies above her chest of draws. She has so many and has displayed them beautifully.
The predominant colours throughout the apartment are white and green which provide a cool, airy feel. Sibella has teemed antique green feature pieces (chest of draws, vintage wallpaper) with plain white walls which help make features of the accent pieces rather than distract from them.
The apartment is a treasure chest of well curated pieces. I love the freshness of the plain white walls and exposed pipework mixed with lots of antique pieces. There are a lot of things on display but somehow it still doesn't look cluttered.
Overall a beautiful, creative space which has given me lots of ideas for my own place. If you want to find out more about Sibella, have a look at her website for her Australian store, The Society Inc, a truly creative project. Sibella has also published two books: Etcetera and The Stylist's Guide to NYC, both are certainly worth a read.
