Tropical Island Decor Style
British Colonial Decorating
Hardcover: 192 pages
It's the ultimate escape fantasy: trade in the rat race for life on a tropical island and all the languid luxury that it evokes. For India Hicks and David Flint Wood, the dream became reality when, after high-profile careers - she as a fashion model, he as an advertising executive - the couple left the city behind for the tropical Bahamas. Five years and three children later, the husband-and-wife team have impeccably restored three british colonial houses and one hotel. Fusing traditional European design with Asian, African, and Caribbean influences, the resulting home interiors reflect their love of intense color and their keen sense of decorating style-inherited on India's side from her father, the renown interior designer David Hicks, and further enhanced by the family's travels.
In Island Life, the interior decorating of these sumptuous, unique british colonial homes-used as locations for Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, and Vogue magazine, among others-are revealed in intimate detail. With panoramic color photographs, David Loftus captures not only the eclectic combinations of antiques, flea market finds, and modern furnishings, but also the overall ambiance of the tropical world. For those who share David and India's dream of tropical island decor style, this is where to start planning.
