Need a calming, beautiful book to give you a little peace in this mad world? I’ve got just the one.
I’ve been reading and perusing this stunning book at night before bed, and my anxiety and blood pressure seems to immediately lower and I feel instantly soothed.
Gypsy is essentially a love letter to travel. Designer and wanderer, Sibella Court, takes you around the globe and encourages you to use all of your five senses to draw muse and creativity from the world around you. She gives solid advice on how to take pieces bought or seen on your travels to decorate your own personal world. Her color palettes from each region she visits (Turkey, Scotland, and Transylvania to name a few) are lush and evocative of each province. The color and light of the verdant photos taken by Sibella’s brother, Chris, an award-winning photographer, are incredibly relaxing and lovely.
This is one of those books I need to own. But until then I’ll continue to check it out at my Louisville Free Public Library branch. You should too!
