Ashley Hicks in many ways carries on the traditions of his father, Mark Hicks. Mark loved using obelisks in his decorating schemes. This room by Ashley benefits from a truly statement white obelisk in the corner and another red obelisk on the console table under the mirror. Love these obelisks in a contemporary design.
