That same night I brought a copy home with me.
There is only one problem.
It is so lovely, so tactile, so full of inspiration and beautiful imagery and lovely fonts, that I do not want to read it for fear of coming to the end.
Do you sometimes have this same dilemma?
It usually strikes when the book or magazine is long-awaited & very special.
And yet I know too that this is silly, because books like Nomad, and indeed Etc before it, are exactly the sort of book that I pick up over and over and over again, they are well-thumbed and much-loved, and each time I see something different, or the inspiration strikes in a completely different way.
Nomad is all about the pleasure of bringing your travels home. Of opening your eyes to what's around you.
"To have a piece of that experience and memory reflected in your interior - even the smallest incidental that makes you smile and takes you to another place - is what it is all about."
And no, we are not in any way, shape or form, talking about a 'themed' interior.
As with everything, it is about composition. It's an emotive way to style your space and be surrounded by the things you love, and that reflect your personality.
And even if you are not travelling, you can still take journeys and be inspired by reading, by movies, and by opening your eyes to life in your town, wherever that may be.
And so I've been channeling my inner Sibella.
Except my inner Sibella has a lot to learn.
(I think lessons in Photoshop might be on the agenda for the new year!)
But Photoshop frustrations aside, Nomad has my eyes wide open to all sorts of interior possibilities, and that could be both exciting (if you're me) or worrying (if you're Brunnel!).
