Description

Product Description

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.

Review

"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."

This is neither a design nor a decorating book, you won''t find overt lessons about form, function, color, and swatches. Rather, India Hicks hits her stride with her 3rd book, "A Slice of England," in this overview of fourimportant homes in her life: Broadlands, Britwell House, The Grove, and American Farm. The first three provide insight into the the lives of 2 influential men in her life, Lord Louis Mountbatten, and her father, 70''s interior designer David Hicks, and her mother, Lady Pamela Hicks. The later, is her house in Oxfordshire, built with the 3rd most important man in her life, her husband, David Flint Wood. America Farm is a new house that is down-to-earth yet, maintains a palatial style. Photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna, with a forward by Carolina Herrera, what becomes clear is that while she is descended from people with BIG pasts, and rubs shoulders with internationally known ones, Ms. Hicks has her own vision and style that is no less ambitious than those of her grandfather, father, and her equally precise (and amusing) mother. This book, the third in a trilogy (in India Hicks style), is an unpretentious glimpse into the collecting, decorating and home life of a woman, who is of this earth. Readers will enjoy her stories and understand that the heart of her style is family, history, curiosity and generosity. You won''t find a lot of decorating tips, rather, what you''ll see is how she pulls things together, a clever hand at collecting and showcasing everyday items to look extraordinary.

More than an interior design book this tells the story of the four generations of exceptional family homes that shaped the author''s design philosophy and indeed sense of identity. Yes, there are gorgeous photos of the four English countryside homes, two decorated by the formidable David Hicks himself, but there is even more here. India shows in her own contemporary home, the fourth of the homes featured in the book, how elements luxurious and whimsical, new and old can be combined to create a space that is authentic to the inhabitants. She places her mother''s vintage swim caps on display in acrylic boxes alongside an exquisite Georgian mirror and vellum scroll boxes. She inspires me to ask "what will I put on display in an acrylic box to share a bit of my family story or elevate an everyday object to treasure?" Certainly India has out-of-the-ordinary family hand me downs with which to work, but her modus operandi she shares in this book is one that can be embraced by anyone who wishes to create beautiful spaces that are authentic to the souls who inhabit them. Or, if that all seems a bit obtuse and you just want a mini espace to the romantic England countryside open this book and let yourself be carried away.

Great book chronicling the homes and lives of a distinguished and interesting family! Terrific photos of memorabilia and many photos of living spaces including rooms decorated by the great decorator David Hicks. A family of "doers!"

There was not much to the book, more a story of her Father, rather than information of decorating or planning of the house. Seemed to be rather a lot of padding.

I thought this book was interesting - particularly as it pertains to her youth. I think her parents were fascinating. Her home is lovely. I do want to add that I recently ran into the India Hicks in Harbour Island. I did try to introduce myself and found her polite but cold and disinterested. She could really care less about meeting a fan. Her book moved from my coffee table to a shelf when I returned home. It was sad to meet someone that I admired and to feel so dejected. This probably impacts my rating to some extent.

India Hicks seemed like a pleasant person to hang out with, and she has had a life of great privilege. But l read her mother''s book about growing up with Lord and Lady Mountbatten as her parents, and sorry India, Lady Pamela had a more riveting story and a subtle writing style that compares favorably. Best choice might be to read both, if you want to know more about the family.

A lovely book, arrived this morning as an Easter present to myself. Following on from her Island Style book which I bought last year and loved- the Hicks family and their combined style both in the house and the garden have long been a source of inspiration to me. The colourful David Hicks prints and enduring interior style sit perfectly in the new country home of his talented daughter and I am sure delight all and also comfort in equal measure. This is great present, a book I will enjoy reading and use for inspiration in attacking how to live a little differently but celebrating that individuality of Britishness, the past with wit, loving ones'' home environment and above all- sharing it with friends and family.
