Island Living Envy

A few weeks back I babysat for an adorable family with two of the cutest little boys. While I was sitting sentinel outside of their bedrooms I picked up a copy of India Hicks' Island Life: Inspirational Interiors from the bookshelf.
When I opened to the first page I squealed with excitment when I saw that India herself had inscribed a note and signed the copy! Apparently the couple had stayed at India's property The Guest House at Hibiscus Hill. Completely jealous right?!
India really has lived a charmed life, daughter of legendary designer David Hicks, granddaughter of the last Viceroy of India, former Ralph Lauren model, bridesmaid to Princess Diana and now island goddess. That's quite a pedigree isn't it? I am completely mesmerized by her and I'm sure you can see why in the following photos...

I'm adding The Guest House at Hibiscus Hill to my ever growing list of must-see destinations. Fingers crossed!


  1. Wow...isn't that the life we all want to live? I love her office. She definitely has style.

  2. I could make my self very comfortable there! Beautiful!

  3. Me too, me too!!!
    I'm obsessed with her too. I finally made a shell type-tray inspired by the one over her desk and I just bought a large vintage reproduction pond yacht from Old Kings Lane last week like the one you've shown above in front of the bookcase. I adore her style. I must go and get that book!
    I wanted to thank you for your well wishes on our son's big news!!!
    Happy new week to you and I loved this post :)

  4. Gorgeous....I think your envy is contagious!

  5. I love her and love her style! So jealous of the family you babysit for!

  6. Okay - even I squealed when I read that India had inscribed the inside! Marija

  7. IH is so impossibly chic; as are you! surely you will make your rounds at this stunning locale!

    here's to a dream to work hard and save pennies for, in the mean time!
