Nikki has made the journey to Puerto Rico this week to join in the initiative helping to reduce the worsening stray dog population on the island. With over half a million stray dogs in Puerto Rico, the location has heart-breakingly been branded ‘dead dog island’. With little government intervention the inhabitants of Puerto Rico are still yet to find a humane resolve for this harrowing situation.Nikki puerto rico Taking action, Nikki set off with close friend and talented photographer Aiden O’neil, on behalf of the Wild at Heart foundation, to join the inspirational Neva, who is currently living in Puerto Rico working tirelessly to make a difference. Neva works on rescuing and re-homing stray dogs as well as spaying and neutering to prevent the birth of thousands of strays.

Collaborating with Humane Society Puerto Rico the Wild at Heart Foundation have launched their own spaying campaign in Puerto Rico with the goal of neutering 100 dogs during their stay.  The foundation are asking for donations to help raise funds for medical equipment, after-care, pop-up clinics and vets expenses.

It costs just £25.00 per dog and this could prevent the births of hundreds of thousands of dogs, condemned with a destitute life on the streets.

We’ll be hearing more from Nikki about the campaign when she returns. Stay tuned.

We have finally dusted off the last remnants of pine and glitter from the workshop and recovered from what has been one of  Wild at Heart’s busiest Christmas’ to date.

Wild at Heart are now walking into 2017, reveling in the mass of fresh flowers the turn of the year brings. January is a month of delicate paper-like petals, beautiful scented bulbs and strikingly detailed flowers – all of which we have been using to create a mix of feminine arrangements.

The team at Wild at Heart have been working ferociously over the past couple of weeks to transform many of our favourite London shop fronts into scenes that would be welcome on the front of any Christmas Card. The Wild at Heart flagship shop is no exception with arches made from a mass of sprayed pine, asparagus and lichen, framing the fresh winter flowers below.

Wild at Heart, recently dressed the tables of Wrotham Park for an unforgettable 50th birthday dinner. The opulent table settings were designed to mirror the beautiful surroundings of the historical room with generous gold beakers containing a mix of cream roses and dahlias running down the length of the table. The flower arrangements were  accented with gold pineapples and crystal storm lanterns to complete the lavish look.

To mark the 1st of December and the countdown to Christmas, Wild at Heart are sharing Nikki’s personal home interior tips this festive season…

What is your advice on creating the perfect tree? 

Your tree will be the focal point of the room and the center piece of the home over the festive period, so choose a theme and colour scheme that will compliment your existing décor.

Decorating your tree with a mixture of standard and over sized ornaments is a great way to give it a more professional look. Embellish your tree with the larger decorations first and don’t be afraid to incorporate a variety of textures to create depth and interest.

I love generosity in everything and Christmas is the perfect excuse for this, I always use masses and masses of lights. I can’t think of anything else that would make your tree more magical!

Where do you find your Christmas inspiration?

My time is split between my home in London and my home in the country, I find massive inspiration in my surroundings from the architecture and gallery’s in the city to the stunning woods and open fields near my home in the south downs. I love to take the dogs out on big walks on a crisp morning and look out for seasonal foliage and branches such as lush holly and lichen to take home and incorporate into my decorations. It’s important to remember that you can add a natural element to your decorations by using foraged pieces which can be so beautiful and free!

What are your key tips for fresh flowers in your home during the festive period?

Always work with flowers in season, as they will not only look their best but they will last longer. Every December I fall in love with Anemone’s again, they have such delicate petals and come in a beautiful variety of colours, to suit any home. My home in Notting Hill is bold and bright, so a mixed clashing Anemone Bouquet acts as the perfect accessory to my living space.

You should always make sure you re-cut the stems of your flowers at an angle before placing them in cool water. Ensure your vase is extremely clean and you change the water every couple of days to try and get the most out of your arrangements.

How do you like to dress your own table for a dinner party over the festive period?

I keep my table simple each year using just a few elements to create impact, again incorporating dried fruit and pine to envelope guests with their beautiful fragrance but also to add a texture to the table. I do have a weakness for a candelabra’s they add a drama and height to the evening, however, for a cozy dinner with friends our new table centers create the perfect focal point.

Your essential Christmas must have…?

Christmas scents are essential… no matter what decor I have each year, I always try and incorporate fresh pine, scented O’Hara roses, cinnamon and dried orange. These scents are such an indulgence at Christmas and evoke so many memories for me.

If you have an aga it’s really easy to make dried oranges yourself.  I slice them into thin segments, lay them on a baking sheet in leave them in the bottom of aga for a couple of days.

What kind of Christmas wreath do you go for?

I always go OTT with my wreaths, the more indulgent the better, again you should consider existing decor and colour of your door when choosing your own. I will be spending Christmas in the country this year, so have gone with a large, dried orange, lime and pine wreath – it smells delicious!

We returned to the historical venue of One Marylebone recently to dress the hall for a spectacular 21st birthday like no other. Alongside globally renowned Lilingston Events, Nikki and our talented creative team worked closely to curate a magical evening that will never be forgotten.

With the freedom to explore the brief of  ‘blue’, our team took inspiration from many sources to bring to life the concept of a wonderfully detailed, playful and luxurious ‘Midnight Forest’.

perrines21sttasternovember05201621

With a tight turnaround, our talented army of florists worked tirelessly day and night on the run up to the evening’s festivities, creating a staggering 8ft of flowered table runners and 20 stunning statement trees – with no area of the venue left untouched.

perrines21sttasternovember05201619

On the evening guests were welcomed into the entrance hall for a drinks reception, which was dressed in beautiful light grey Lilingston bespoke furniture and framed with a wonderful light grey sparkling fern arch.

Guests were then lead into the great hall, and into the Midnight Forest….

Two tables ran the length of the room, dressed with intricate table runners comprising of a generous mix of red dahlias, pimpernel hydrangea, clematis, lilac tulips, anenome, delicate grape hyacinth and four different types of blue delphinium. The runner took inspiration from the wilderness of a forest floor, with pimpernel hydrangea leading guests attention up to the forest canopy . The table setting was accented with details such as Wild at Heart bespoke, hand-blown glass oil lamps, filled with dyed blue paraffin, and striking agate place cards designed by Lilingston.

The statement trees were comprised with a mass of glitter and cobalt blue sprayed asparagus fern, which created the sparkling forest top.  After the lavish dinner in the Midnight Forest, guests were invited to walk along the custom blue glitter carpet and retire to the dance floor for an evening of entertainment provided by Jess Gylnne.
