In Progress Sneak Peek of Nicole's Sculpture

Aside from the fact that I pretty much run all of my own purchases/ house tweaks by Nicolethe Fleurir chocolate shop is the first time we've officially worked on a design project together. And it's awesome. Both the project and the working together part.

Time was short and the budget was tight, and I knew that Nicole--who is total creative rockstar--could make the most of both. Thankfully, she agreed to come on board and work her magic. All those years of developing my skills of persuasion as her little sister paid off afterall :)

It had to be fresh and whimsical and organic... and huge. And basically free.

Think branches, tennis balls, black beans, clothes pins, and wax paper. Oh yeah, and golf tees.

What? You can't picture it?

Ok here's an in progress peek....
Since the shot, a few more buds have bloomed on the branches, but you get the idea. At night the shadows are incredible!

When Nicole isn't whipping up last minute sculptures out of nothing, she's in her studio painting masterpieces (check out a few on her website)....

or being cool and witty on her new art blog...

or perfecting the art of rockstar parenting...

she's not an easy act to follow :)

  1. Leah, I'm loving your frequent posts because I always look forward to seeing what you're up to! I see that massive amounts of creativity were doled out in your family gene pool. Love that piece she created.
