Inspired by the colours and textures of her tropical roots, Alicia Rountree shares her carefree lifestyle in her paradisiacal home in Mauritius--from a picnic on a sandbank to a sunset dinner on the beach and quiet time at home sipping tisanes. Her refreshing entertaining style is shown at her family's beach retreat and colonial stone homes as well as on deserted beaches. Chic tabletops are dressed up with a mix of heirloom and contemporary tableware, palmiers are worked into table decor, and fresh herbs or flowers are tucked in napkin rings fashioned from twine. Throughout Alicia also offers advice to promote wellness in daily life, such as energizing recipes including a lemongrass tonic, avocado toast, and nourishing dal. Vases full of vibrant blooms, such as bird-of-paradise and palm fronds, are used to create a serene decor. For the style-conscious and health-minded, Alicia's outlook is uplifting.
