The Collector – My House

THE HOME
Two homes, actually: a rented house in Sydney’s Bondi, and The Society Inc – an old Paddington corner shop with a planted-out verge (with herbs and lemon and olive trees) and a rooftop garden.

WHO LIVES HERE
Interior stylist Sibella Court, her partner, Ben Harper, and her baby, Silver. “A pig named Wilbur once lived with us, but he moved on to greener pastures.”

WHAT I DID
“When I bought the shop in 2009, I ripped out every thing and rewired, painted and sanded to start with a blank canvas. At Bondi, my private quarters – a series of small rooms with a verandah on the first level – are separated from my living and entertaining quarters on the ground level.”

FAVOURITE ROOM
“At Bondi, I have a walk-in room for my clothes, with a giant French painter’s ladder and my mother’s chaise lounge that I had reupholstered with painter’s drop cloths hand-dyed by Shibori in Stanmore, Sydney.”

THE ‘HOOD
“We love the beach at Bondi. We’re on the quiet side of Paddo – wide streets, big trees and lots of parking.”

FUTURE PLANS
The shop will be moving and the Paddington store will be transformed into a boutique hotel.

WE LOVE
Vases filled with flowers and foliage (especially oversized) and anything with fruit on the branch.
