                                                                  David Hicks: A Life of Design

A treasure has been offered to those interested in decorating. Ashley Hicks has presented us with the beautiful biography of one of the most talented interior designers known. It may replace the favorite book on the coffee table of those fortunate enough to own it.

David Hicks: A Life of Design is extremely well written, telling the story of the life of this designer in a way that grasps the reader’s attention in a way difficult to describe. This just may be the most valuable interior design publication on the shelf. You be the judge. No narration needed.

This will be a two-part post. I couldn’t decide which photographs to scan, leaving so many only available to those owning the book.

For those of you close to me, or who have seen previous posts, it comes as no surprise that I would love this book -- black, white, gray and vermillion are my chosen colors. Feast your eyes on the following and ENJOY!

I couldn’t resist posting this early, so please go back and see the first etiquette post that I posted earlier today!

Consists of thoughtfulness and kindness. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (The Golden Rule) Thoughtfulness means thinking about helping others feel comfortable, and kindness carries this thought into action. Offering praise and showing appreciation are means to accomplish these goals.
