INDIA HICKS: The Story of Four Houses - A Slice of England
The perfect goft for your house-proud friend. A follow-up to her New York Times bestselling book, India Hicks: Island Style, this book is the designer's exploration of her British heritage and we see how she has expressed it in her newly finished English country house in Oxfordshire. Divided into two parts. Part one - Legacy, is the story of her family's homes, including the Broadlands estate, and her parents houses, Britwell and the Grove, as well as her father David Hick's famous garden. The second half of the book is the story of her new home, America Farm in the Cotswolds, a stunning example of how she has reinterpreted English tradition. Covering life upstairs and downstairs, on the grounds and in the neighbouring countryside, the book is enriched with stories of Hicks' life growing up as British design royalty. An aesthetic treat.
