Sydney-born interiors stylist Sibella Court is an editor at Grazia magazine, the proprietress of The Society Inc. ("a haberdashery meets hardware store specializing in local and global textiles, furniture, housewares, and beautiful things" in the Paddington neighborhood of Sydney); if that's not enough, she also comes out with quarterly paint collections for Australian company Murobond. 

N.B. For those of us not living in Australia, Court's inspiring (and wildly popular) interiors book, Etc.: Creating Beautiful Interiors with the Things You Love, is available for $25.86 at Amazon.

Above L to R: Court's blackboard paints are available in shades like Oceania, Cherry Nose, Pirate Black.
