I recently featured India Hicks's Harbor Island rental property, so when I came across an image of Ms. Hicks at her home in the Bahamas, I had to share its gorgeous Summer style with CasaSugar readers.
This workspace really works due to its mix of feminine and masculine elements. I love how the muscular campaign desk in Hicks's workspace anchors the room, while the wall, collaged with postcards, inspirational art clippings, and a curio box full of ocean souvenirs, adds a tropical femininity to the space.
To get the look, start with the biggest piece of furniture: the campaign desk. The desk will be the centerpiece of the room, so don't be afraid to splurge. I love this Rosewood and Leather Danish Campaign Desk ($3,200) from the early 1960s. For a contemporary option, try the Crate and Barrel Campaign Desk ($1,000).
For the rest of the look, read more.
Save special cards, postcards, or pages from art magazines to create a collage effect on the wall above your desk. While I'm not necessarily a fan of the curio box, I do love the way that India modernizes the box by sticking to one simple, organic element (shells) instead of creating a fussy knick knack collection. You can get a knick knack box through The Ancient Craftsman for $35.
Follow India's lead and use one object in repetition in the box. Think nature-inspired finds, such as rocks, shells, seed pods, or agates. Add some Summer blooms in a casual vase, and your look is nearly complete. For other ideas, check out my finds below.
