The Ghost of Brentwood...
For as well as a passion for the Regency world of the Poet Lord Byron, the occasional bar of chocolate and creating ‘Small Worlds’ in 12th scale; I also have an enduring interest in the life of Nicole Brown Simpson AND as one of the most popular ‘Small Worlds’ is Nicole’s House, I thought I’d share a ‘little’ more about this unique 12th scale abode.
“I just don’t see how our stories compare -I was so bad because I wore sweats & left shoes around & didn’t keep a perfect house or comb my hair the way you like it – or had dinner ready at the precise moment you walked through the door or that I just plain got on your nerves sometimes.
I just don’t see how that compares to infidelity, wife beating, verbal abuse.
I just don’t think everybody goes through this…. I called the cops to save my life whether you believe it or not..”
Nicole Brown Simpson circa 1991
In June 1994 and shortly before her brutal murder, Nicole was making plans to leave her home at 875 South Bundy Drive in Brentwood, Los Angeles in order to escape the abuse and obsession which had dominated her long relationship with the former football player O.J. Simpson.
Only days before her death, Nicole had seen a beach house in Malibu available for rent and she was excited and positive at the prospect of a move there with their children.
'Nicole's House' is a 12th scale miniature of several narratives:
A recreation of some of the principle rooms at 875 South Bundy Drive as they were discovered in the early hours of Monday June 13 1994 as the investigation into the murders of Nicole and Ronald Lyle Goldman was underway.
Additional rooms are created as a tribute to the essence of Nicole who loved the style of interior design that has come to typify the "California Look".
Finally, as we know that Nicole was planning a move to a beach house in Malibu, 'Nicole's House' is a poignant reminder of 'what might have been'.
