Natural Beauty

There are so many talented designers and stylist out there but one of my all time favourites is India Hicks. India’s father was famed interior designer David Hicks (another one of my favourite designers) and with Prince of Wales as her Godfather, one would assume that refined style would exude from India’s very existence, it does, however India has crafted a style that is uniquely hers, full of natural elegance, honesty, personality and relaxed confidence.



I have met India on occasion and am always delighted by her warmth of character, love of nature and adventure (she scuba dives, wakeboards, has climbed the Grand Canyon… and so on). And what is amazing to me is that all of these elements of her life are reflected in her design & styling creations. This reminds me, we should always, always, bring our personalities, loves and adventures into our home designs and styling.


India was in Toronto this week to unveil the Crabtree & Evelyn Fall & Holiday collection as well as some of their wonderful new products (I can’t wait for the pomegranate line to launch in fall!!). The highlight of the event to me was a Christmas table set and designed by India. It featured natural, rustic wood, wooden candles, soft worn cotton cloth… there was no bling, and I loved it!!




The look was soft, elegant and crisp. Perhaps this isn’t a look for you, it was definitely something that inspired me. But more importantly I hope it inspires you and you'll style and decorate your home in a flavour that is all yours!!!
