IMG_2462Over the past two years Nikki and the Wild at Heart team have worked tirelessly with Bicester Village to transform their shopping mall into an immersive landscaping experience. Influenced by the Oxfordshire setting, Nikki’s original ideas came from her dream of transforming the mall into the overgrown grounds of an old manor house.

Two years later and Nikki and the team have surpassed all original concepts by installing 100′s of evolving still life-vignettes. Each one completely bespoke, created using original items sourced from antique markets across Europe.

This journey has since continued over the past month and the Wild at Heart team have re-invented Kildare Village into an enchanted setting with plants and trees native to the Irish surroundings. IMG_1908 IMG_2028 IMG_2098 IMG_2301 IMG_2321 IMG_2383 With the villages ever evolving and our landscaping projects now taking us to various other European destinations, stay tuned and share your pictures of our still life vignettes using the #nikkitibbleswildatheart

L'Objet-9 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.

tulumThe 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.

L'Objet-21L'Objet-22The 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.

L'Objet-10 L'Objet-4L'Objet-26 Celestial bowls were soften with hybrid arrangements of blousy coral charm peonies and given a ‘Mexican moment’ with contradictory agave leaves, succulents and dahlias.

L'Objet-28 Gracefully meandering down the centre of the table, passion flower filled the room with it’s equatorial aroma. L'Objet-29

And of course the evening wouldn’t be complete without a Mariachi band providing the entertainment…

IMG_3008Available from late February through to September the sweet pea or ‘delicate pleasure’ is a firm favourite at Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart

Stunning scent and paper like petals make the sweet pea a welcome edition in any summer arrangement or equally on mass as a standalone statement piece.

The feminine flower comes in an array of different  tones, from creamy whites through to pretty pastels and deep burgundies. Originally the ethereal petal was only solid in colour but now flower growers have perfected two tone, striped and swirled pattered varieties.IMG_7300spSWEET PEACaring for your sweet pea’s… Sweet Peas are very thirsty flowers, to ensure you get the most out of your arrangement re-cut the stems before placing the flowers in cool, clean water, replacing every day.
