The unique building that is home to the first Nikki Tibble’s Wild at Heart shop was commissioned by the residents of Westbourne Grove back in 1993. Now one of the most well-known architectural land-marks in Notting Hill, the ‘Turquoise Island’ store, created by Piers Gough is renowned for its sharp angles, bright walls and ultimately the paradox of the dual usage of the building… a public toilets and stunning florist shop!
At the start of Nikki’s floristry career, she received a letter inviting London based florists to interview for tenancy at the Island. After sending a beautiful bouquet to the council, in true ‘Wild at Heart’ style, Nikki was given the keys the very next day. The shop, which has now achieved listed status, was the start of Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart and despite having the Flagship Pimlico shop and Liberty concession, the ‘Island’ will always hold a special place.

Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart are delighted to announce the launch of the exciting new partnership with one of the UK’s most loved online florist’s, Bloom & Wild. The collaboration marries the abundant Wild at Heart style with Bloom & Wild’s innovative use of mobile technology to create a harmonious partnership of beautiful floral arrangements.
Inspired by Victorian floriography, the series of hand-tie and letterbox bouquets have been carefully curated to celebrate the language of flowers. In the 19th century flower gifting held true sentiment with each stem baring different meaning. Floriography became the prevalent way to send messages to friends or loved ones.
Working closely with popular names in the fashion, art, travel and lifestyle industry, Nikki and Bloom & Wild created a re-fashioned floral glossary, bringing modern meaning to each hand-tie and letterbox arrangement. The theme of ‘Modern Heritage’ brings back the romance into flower gifting, making each arrangement the perfect gift with sentiment.

We recently adorned a suite at the iconic Ritz Hotel with a luxurious palette of blue flowers for an expectant mother and her close friends and family. Working with luxury event planner Alexandra Zand, we created the perfect setting for the high society group to enjoy an afternoon of traditional games, gifting and indulgent afternoon-tea.
An elaborate stem bowl of soft blue scabiosa, delphinium and peonies filled the large window space in the entrance of the suite. Complimentary bud vases were scattered across the room, filling the space with the sweet scent of summer flowers.
Following the initial festivities, guests were welcomed to enjoy the famed Ritz afternoon-tea, set on a mahogany dining table dressed with an elaborate table runner of soft blue hues.

Last week Intro Art launched their new collection of hand painted ceramics at our Pimlico shop. The visual arts based charity encourages people with learning difficulties to draw on their creative bank and produce individual items of art. A long standing supporter of the charity, it was only natural that Nikki collaborated with the four inspiring artists on their latest project.
Having discussed the inspiration behind their creations Nikki designed a selection of plants and cut flowers to adorn the ceramics for the exclusive preview event.
Thank you to all who came and supported the event and help raise much needed funds for the wonderful charity…

Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart recently had the pleasure of working with event designer Fiona Leahy to create a wonderful Mexican inspired dinner setting in celebration of L’objet’s new Tulum collection.
The collection which launched in March 2017, is inspired by the history and architecture of the Mayan archaeology site, Tulum. Mexico. A combination of stunning de-saturated vessels, cacti sculptures and statement celestial bowls form the inspired range.
The intimate dinner took place at Maison Assouline with talented event planner Fiona Leahy designing the perfect setting to compliment the pieces from the new collection.
Celestial bowls were soften with hybrid arrangements of blousy coral charm peonies and given a ‘Mexican moment’ with contradictory agave leaves, succulents and dahlias.
Gracefully meandering down the centre of the table, passion flower filled the room with it’s equatorial aroma.
And of course the evening wouldn’t be complete without a Mariachi band providing the entertainment…
