The first look at designer India Hicks’s house in the English countryside, as well as the houses of her childhood.

A follow-up to India Hicks’s New York Times bestselling book, India Hicks: Island StyleIndia Hicks: A Slice of England is the designer’s exploration of her British heritage and how she has expressed it in her newly finished English country house in Oxfordshire. The book is divided into two parts. Part one, Legacy, is the story of her family’s homes, including the renowned Broadlands estate, and her parents’ houses, Britwell and the Grove, as well as her father David Hicks’s famous garden.

The second half of the book is the story of her new home, America Farm, a stunning example of how she has reinterpreted English tradition and made it her own. She covers life upstairs and downstairs, on the grounds and in the surrounding country, including local pubs, circuses, and markets.

Enriched with the witty and tender stories of Hicks’s life growing up as British and design royalty, this is a book about the power of houses with family history, and the joy of adapting them for modern life.

A Slice of Cake as I enjoy A Slice of England

5

I'll admit I'm a follower of India Hicks's Lifestyle Books and Instagram. The book is typical Hicks, lyrically taking her reader through her interesting life and how this sets the scene for her lifestyle choices. I enjoy her books gradually - seating down with a cup of tea, a slice of cake or a bikkie for morning tea or afternoon tea and I read a chapter only at each seating. This is my indulgence to myself when I want to chill out. Yes, India is a name dropper - why else would we read her. Yes, her lifestyle seems extravagant but she also mixes and matches high end with low end and we can follow that any way we want. This may not be written as a history book but like her other lifestyle books she leads me to research other topics that she has mentioned - such as the history of India, the Troubles in Ireland and the settlement of her beloved Harbour Island and the Bahamas. I enjoy her writing, her stories and the presentation of the book. An indulgence , but life is too short not to enjoy a slice of cake with a Slice of England

"Hicks has grown from being one of Princess Diana's bridesmaids to running a lifestyle brand that includes works on home decor. This volume moves from the author's typical island settings to her deep roots in England, where she captures traditional design and shares her family history."
-- Library Journal

"Designer, model, and lifestyle guru India Hicks is back with another stunning coffee table tome, this one dedicated to the meaning of home. It's broken into two sections: the first looks at the famous homes and gardens of her parents, while the second is entirely about the author and her new country house in Oxfordshire. This book is beautiful, informative, and entirely envy-inducing."
