From the Back Cover

New York, possibly the world’s most vibrant and energizing city, abounds with a wide range of shops, spots and restaurants—an abundance of riches, but where to start? This fully illustrated guide presents the personal favorites of top interior stylist Sibella Court. Cleverly arranged into loops of interest such as “Jewelry & Hardware,” “Haberdashery & Handmade” and “Furniture & Interiors,” The Stylist’s Guide to NYC takes the first-time visitor—or long-time resident—on surprising and beguiling journeys,
uncovering traditional merchants and hidden sanctuaries as well as some of the coolest spots in town.
This collection of stores, services, galleries, markets, and places to eat also contains city survival tips, maps, and comprehensive indexes. With an idiosyncratic and impeccable eye, Court celebrates the beautiful, the curious and the unexpected, making this an indispensible accessory for anyone visiting, working or living in New York. Includes foldout map plus two pockets for souvenir tickets, cards and more.

About the Author

After establishing herself as an interior stylist in Australian lifestyle publications, Sibella Court moved to New York in 1999. She built a career in the US over nine years, working on advertising campaigns for Jo Malone, Bergdorf Goodman and Brocade home, and was a regular contributor to magazines including Travel & Leisure, Town & Country, US Vogue Living and House & Garden. She returned home in 2008 and opened The Society Inc, an old haberdashery meets hardware store specializing in local and global textiles, furniture, homewares and beautiful things. Sibella is the Interiors Editor of Harpers Bazaar and Grazia magazines, designs paint ranges quarterly with Murobond Paints and was recently a judge on the interior design TV show Homemade. Her first book, "Etcetera: Creating Beautiful Interiors with the Things You Love," won Best Designed Book and Best Designed General Illustrated Book at the APA Annual Design Awards 2010.

This book is set up like a travel guide - there are some basics at the start about transportation (taxis, subways, etc; tips for having purchases delivered to hotels), when to go to New York, etc.

I live about an hour from NYC, so I don't need a travel guide, but I still LOVE this stylist's guide. There are places mentioned in the book that i already know of, and many i didn't know of. Many of the places she outlines have been around for a very long time, so the guide should be useful for a few years. I was worried that it might seem like an other 'travel' book - quickly outdated. But it doesn't come across that way, because there are so many established places described. Occasionally my husband and i go for an overnight, so next time i'm going to stop into some of the places i have marked with sticky notes.

As a bonus, the book itself is nicely and stylishly laid out, with interesting and curious pictures. It's fun to look at and to read!

i've been reading this little by little--it is certainly thorough and brings you through a tour of every neighborhood and unknown corner of NYC! I'll have to check out some of these places! Format is user friendly and the book itself has a nice feel to it--pictures and paper.

Breaks the mould on guide books. You dont even need to be travelling to NYC to enjoy this view of the city.

I surprised my mom with a trip to NYC for Christmas, but needed something I could wrap up to put under the tree. I ordered a bunch of NYC Guide books from Amazon, and this was by far my favorite. It's very pretty, and has some different info from the typical guide books. Great for someone who is interested in seeing the fashion side of NYC.

It is a style of late to have photos* that are slightly grayed, on the dreamy side,
not crisp & distinct. It is actually hard to make out some details, and while they
are very artistic, I'd like them better if they were sharper images.

*The Life of a Bowerbird, Wabi Inspirations, The Stylist' Guide to NYC, etc.

Was really pleased with this book. Beautiful presentation, informative and lovely photography. I am going to New York next month so will put this book to great use. Not only practical but a nice coffee table book.
