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.

About the Author

India Hicks was born in England to famed decorator David Hicks and Lady Pamela Hicks. Her grandfather, Lord Mountbatten, was the last viceroy to India, granting their independence in 1947. She was a bridesmaid for the wedding of her godfather, Prince Charles, to Lady Diana. A celebrated model, India lives with her partner, David Flint Wood, and their five children on Harbour Island, in the Bahamas. With David, she wrote her previous book, Island Life. A designer of fine jewelry, she has also created collections for Crabtree & Evelyn and HSN, and will launch her own bath and body and accessories line. Her successful home decor, jewelry, skincare, and accessory lines are also available at her website.

Industry Reviews

"What makes India and this book so unique is how openly she invites us into her life via the pages. It is written from a very personal perspective, sharing her passion for scrapbooking, the importance of building collections, lovely details about her family life and her absolutely wonderful tips on design, living and entertaining." -Life in A Venti Cup

"India inspires me to let a love of life show through in my decorating. If you're looking for a book that's equal parts transportative and invigorating, Island Style is for you."

A little disapointed

I was a little let down that there wasn't more interior inspiration in the book. Very thick pages which padded it out, and some lovely shots, but overall not inspirational on the overall "Island Style" and if you were trying to re-create it. Overall the book is more to do with the author's life and her wealthy family and friends.
