Nicole grew up in Carroll County, Maryland and spent her college years in Doylestown, PA and Philadelphia. She came to Los Angeles partly to finish her degree, but mostly to chase love.

After Nicole married her husband, James, in 2015, she became a permanent SoCal resident and decided to plant some roots in Los Angeles (pun intended). After some soul searching, Nicole’s passion became her essence and she decided to create The Bloemist.

Although fierce flowering has overtaken Nicole’s life, she also enjoys fashion, food she hasn’t cooked, camp fires, Halloween, and animals of all kinds.

Nicole has two fur babies, Bridget and Daisy, and dreams of one day owning a white fancy chicken. 

Nicole Lourie is the owner and lead designer of The Bloemist.
