From India Hicks, a beautifully illustrated guide to achieving her famously undone, gloriously bohemian decorating style.
Born from British and design royalty, India Hicks has forged a design empire from her family's enclave in the Bahamas. In India Hicks: Island Style, she invites readers into her world, offering never-before-seen imagery and irresistible behind-the-scenes stories.
Beginning with an uproarious reflection on India's own design odyssey, the heart of the book is an in-depth exploration of her style.
Timeless and under-decorated, her rooms combine carefree Caribbean culture with British colonial form and formality.
In ten chapters, India walks the reader through the basics of capturing the look: the subtle palette of island life; the miracle of tablescaping; the warm anarchy of a family kitchen; the pleasure of porches; the drama of entertaining; bedrooms as places of self-expression; the more is more style of living with collections; the importance of repurposing; and creating spaces of sanctuary.
Witty, richly prescriptive, beautifully photographed, this book will enchant readers with a glimpse of decorating in paradise.
