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.
