Inspirational and visually on trend, Ashley Hicks’s latest work is a pattern book for the twenty-first century. Offering insights and revelations, Hicks’s own exquisitely quirky and colorful historicist interiors are discussed with designs from the recent and faraway past. Ashley Hicks has created a mix of manifesto, souvenir album, and confession in this collection of noteworthy rooms–featuring his own one-of-a-kind interiors along with rooms that have inspired him. The book’s twelve chapters reveal Hicks’s creative process, how he approaches different themes in his own interiors, furniture designs, and works of art, and how these themes can be applied to the works of others. Hicks has created a book for devotees of decorating and the history of interior design.
