india hicks: a slice of england coverYou might know india hicks from her roles as a fashion model, as host of Bravo’s Top Design, or as the face of her own lifestyle brand. But A Slice of England offers an intimate look at her experience growing up as design royalty (not to mention literal royalty — Hicks is technically in the line of succession for the British Throne) by exploring a series of historic British homes. Through a combination of stunning photography and stories from her childhood, Hicks brings us through the legendary Broadlands estate of her grandparents, Lord Louis and Lady Edwina Mountbatten. We also see her parents’ homes, Britwell and the Grove, and father David Hicks’ famous garden. For something newer, Hicks also gives an inside look of her America Farm home, which captures her take on British culture while reflecting contemporary design.
