David Hicks: Intimate A World of Private Interiors David Hicks • Foreword by Neale Whitaker Photographs by Ivan Terestchenko and Shannon McGrath David Hicks’s interior design work is streamlined and modern, yet tactile and luxurious while hinting at a little nostalgia; it is an aesthetic that has been described as ‘new luxury’. The influential Australian designer has a knack for mixing styles, periods and antiques, which he then juxtaposes with modern finishes. However, his design philosophy extends far beyond the surface, and architectural considerations are balanced with a keen eye for decoration. Every detail from materials and finishes to decorative objects and furnishings are thoughtfully curated with an emphasis on enduring quality. This collection of Hicks’s most covetable spaces is an invitation into an intimate world of interiors where no detail is too small. With photography by Ivan Terestchenko, Intimate is David Hicks’s personal perspective, a narrative of his references and inspirations – from the detailed curation of objects and art sourced from the world over, through to the architectural detailing and finishes.
