I have to admit something, I may have a crush on today’s blog subject, India Hicks. Hicks was our second keynote speaker last Monday at Design Bloggers Conference and she was amazing, she was very easy to listen to and she told stories and spun tales of her life of growing up in England as an extended member of the Royal Family and her life today as a mother of 5 living on a “secret” island in the Caribbean. India Hicks is the daughter of Lady Pamela Mountbatten and designer David Hicks and the granddaughter of Lord Louis Mountbatten.


During her talk, Hicks shared photos with us of the English home she grew up in as well as the secluded island she calls home today. As the daughter of a world famous designer she was always surrounded by beautiful things and colors and today she has taken those life experiences and funneled them into her new business venture, India Hicks Collection of London & Harbour Island, a company that specializes in beautiful luxury goods but does it all through direct sales where the merchandise is brought to your home, you host a party and invite your friends.
