Office Design & Must-Reads

North Fork Design Co.: Designing the Ideal Office for the North Fork Designer Show House

Caitlin Flynn and Elyse Parkhurst are the duo behind North Fork Design Co., who created this vividly inspired office for the North Fork Designer Show House on Long Island, New York. To create a bold statement within a small space, they began by painting the walls in Sherwin-Williams Oceanside, and then designed a grid on the ceiling centered by a medallion. The Chrystie Street desk in faux shagreen from Society Social sits atop a rug from Landry & Arcari. Curtain fabric is from Kravet. Keep an eye out for more interiors from North Fork Design Co. as they are currently working on projects in Boston's Back Bay and the South End, as well as Newton and Wellesley.

India Hicks: Island Style


By India Hicks

In her much anticipated second book, India Hicks, born of British and design royalty, delivers a book that invites readers into the world of bohemian style and whimsical island living — the lifestyle with which she has become synonymous. 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. Hicks now calls Harbour Island home, and this book illustrates her style, which is timeless and under-decorated. Her rooms combine carefree Caribbean culture with British colonial form and formality.
