Design Library: David Hicks A Life of Design


September 16, 2010

I’ve been wanting to add a book of David Hick’s work for a few years now, ever since I went to school and worked with my friend Elizabeth at Westbrook Interiors.  She is a huge fan of David Hicks and I can see why.  He was an early master of contemporary design and his work still fresh today has inspired me many times over.

Fresh and poppy.  I love the play of aqua and yellow off all the green tones.

How can you go wrong with black lacquer walls and Queen Elizabeth.

This is a serious library.  It even has a ladder.

Tone on tone neutrals… and doing accessories right.

Yellow… rarely done and rarely done right.

The art of pink and red.


Traditional, until you spot the bent acrylic tables.

Marble and flowers- soft and hard done right.
