A Bahamian-dwelling and -bred design enthusiast, India Hicks shared some easy pointers for capturing island style — regardless of where you live. If you're not planning an island escape anytime soon, then embrace the aesthetic at home by following India's foolproof steps.
- Bring the scent of the islands to your home.
The India Hicks Island Living collection at Crabtree & Evelyn includes indulgent tropical scents form the home. We're eyeing the rattan-wrapped Casuarina Scented Candle ($36) and the Casuarina Fragrance Diffuser ($70), inspired by casuarinas trees, palm leaves, orange blossoms, and sea air.
- Switch your sheets.
India suggests choosing airy colors like whites, creams, and pale grays. We're terribly tempted to try this Washed Linen Bedding ($75-$298).
- Collect palm fronds in a huge vase.
- Embrace mosquito netting.
India loves that they last longer than flowers and are incredibly affordable.
India insists that mosquito netting is an easy and affordable way to dress up your bed. She relies on styles from Bed Bath & Beyond, like this Siam White Bed Canopy ($30) option.
