What is the Story Behind the Creation and Design of ‘Nicole’s House’?
The model began life in kit form purchased from an independent dolls’ house supplier with the original design having been modified – ‘Nicole’s House’ has been created primarily with the use of MDF, plaster, strip wood, paints, mountboard, papier-mâché, air-drying clay, natural foliage and of course with plenty of glue and lots of imagination!
The model remains the exclusive work of Tee Bylo.

Why the Creation of ‘Nicole’s House’?
Beginning with the news of the murders in June 1994 and from the first book she bought in the Autumn of 1994 to the sensational murder trial with the lurid tabloid tales and the campaign to raise much needed awareness against domestic abuse as well as being the subject of a controversial thesis – Tee’s interest in the life of Nicole Brown Simpson has been an enduring constant.
Tee’s contention is that despite the thousands of words written about Nicole with the tales of glamour, celebrity, wealth and beauty, these have only served to make her a remote and insignificant figure – a wrong Tee is determined to remedy.
“The woman loved life. She loved to entertain, and she went all out when you visited, whether it was for coffee, lunch, to play tennis, to have drinks to eat dinner. You always felt special walking into her world…” ~ Tanya Brown
As Tee has been making ‘Small Worlds’ for many years now and with a passion for design just as intoxicating – the creation and story of ‘Nicole’s House’ celebrates the life of a talented and loved young woman who relished nothing more than being with her family in the home she had made for them.
