India Hicks Style

I'm styling the house for summer & looking to Island Life for inspiration

The clean feeling of the Harbor Island homes & hotel owned by India Hicks is perfect

I love the way she uses heirloom 'objet' to personalize living spaces

With Hicks in mind, I scoured local flea markets, consignment shops & antique malls for pieces that channel India's mojo...

Anchor andirons with perfect patina

Antique butler's tray w/traditional inlay

Vintage faux bamboo vase {for a handful of palm leaves}

Antique hot printing plate drawer, to fill with the treasures of Summer

Vintage garden concrete bird's nest

Pair of vintage pineapple lamps updated with shades from a West Elm outlet

Antique postcard to enlarge 10x & place in a simple black frame from IKEA
Priceless heirlooms?  $710


  1. That was a fantastic haul of treasures from the shops, well done! I particularly like the faux bamboo vase and the pineapple lamps. Are the lamp bases Casa Pupo? It's getting very collectable these days.

    Also loved the description of your father's shopping sprees.. bay rum and tobacco. I miss that.

  2. just love keeping inspired by browsing images of india hicks indulgences.
