India Hicks was born in England to famed decorator David Hicks and Lady Pamela Hicks. Her grandfather, Lord Mountbatten, was the last viceroy to India, granting their independence in 1947. She was a bridesmaid for the wedding of her godfather, Prince Charles, to Lady Diana. A celebrated model, India lives with her partner, David Flint Wood, and their five children on Harbour Island, in the Bahamas. With David, she wrote her previous book, Island Life.
In 2015, after a decade of successful licensing partnerships with notable companies such as Crabtree & Evelyn and HSN, India launched INDIA HICKS London-Harbour Island – a luxury direct sales lifestyle brand that seeks inspiration from her British Heritage and Island Life. Composed of accessories, jewelry, home and bath & body, the India Hicks brand is shared through remarkable women as a foundation for them to become entrepreneurs, in their own time and on their own terms.
Surrounded by historical homes in a small Midwestern town, Michelle’s passion for design grew as she did. With a gift for detail at a young age, she drafted floor plans, designed small scale homes, and painted artwork. Now, with over twenty years of professional experience, Michelle considers each new home an artist’s canvas. Her specialty is luxury residential new construction with projects now in several states. Her other projects include multi-family condominiums, corporate headquarters, medical offices, and small scale hospitality spaces. Her dream project is to design a series of high style boutique hotels.
I have always been intrigued with how light, colors, textures, and sound can influence a space. At Studio M, we strive to produce interiors that enliven your senses.
As a Professional Member of ASID, she is recognized for meeting strict standards and maintaining Continuing Education. She serves on the Board of Interior Design for Florida State University, her alma mater.
Michelle enjoys traveling, real estate hunting, working out, reading, attending FSU Seminole and Tampa Bay Buccaneer football games, and most of all just hanging out with her husband, children, and Australian labradoodle Tagg (you will find him at the office most days). She is an active member of Calvary Church. And….she may or may not be a “chocoholic”. Or as she likes to call a “chocolate connoisseur.”
