Picturesque Scenery

Tropical breezes beckon. India, who mostly eschews air-conditioning, loves to live outdoors.

Poolside Terrace and Outdoor Living Area

India, partner David Flint Wood, and their daughter Domino relax. Behind them looms the property’s imposing Bismarckia palm tree.

Mother and Daughter

India shares a laugh with Domino, who was named for the “Bond girl” in the movie Thunderball, which was filmed in the Bahamas.

Inviting Terrace Table

Set with the tropical bounty of pomegranates and pineapples, a table is covered by one of the versatile, washable quilts India designed for HSN.

Color-Happy Backyard Playhouse

David designed it, and India decorated the inside. Now painted pink and white for Domino, it has gone through several renovations as the hangout for her older brothers.

See more of the playhouse on the following slide.

Playhouse Respite

Domino reads in the doorway of her candy-colored playhouse.

A Home Full of History

David had it made for India, whose late father, designer David Hicks, loved all things Egyptian. The obelisk is one of her most prized possessions, along with a folding travel clock given to her at birth by her godfather, the Prince of Wales, and artwork by her children preserved in the scrapbooks she keeps.

Designs Inspired by Island Life

When India was designing her Island Living line for HSN, she heard the voice of her late father, designer David Hicks, saying, “Good taste and design are by no means dependent upon money.” The collection reflects her philosophy. “Rather than live in an over-decorated house, I like a home with a lived-in feel, highly personal effects around me, and a slightly sophisticated edge—but very family-oriented,” she says.

Motifs for her washable quilts (dachshund Banger poses on one, above, on India’s bedroom terrace) come from the ocean where she swims. “They don’t need to live in a bedroom,” she says. “I use them as blankets for picnics on the beach and wrap the kids in them in front of the TV.”

Colorful Blooms

Bougainvillea adds a jolt of color to the mostly quiet plant palette.

Tropical Tabletop Décor

A candlelit table on the terrace is adorned with seashells and delicate frangipani blossoms.
