I love getting inspired by travel. Recently back from a get-away to warmer waters, I have been reflecting on what I like to call Island Style. The laid back mix of natural materials, hand blocked textiles and sea inspired palettes is perpetually chic. I really enjoy infusing the coastal homes and spaces I design with this vibe. Here are some interesting spaces by India Hicks:
Island Style is breezy and casual with subtle hints of ocean and sand. You can forget anchor printed fabrics, prints of starfish and seashells and nautical themed rooms. Paint your furniture, or even your floors. Look to interesting graphic prints and retro bamboo pieces for a more contemporary take on the beach inspired theme. Here are some great pieces that can bring a little Island style to your home:

Fabric, Bahama Handprints
Until your next destination.
Bon Voyage and Happy Decorating!
