Whimsy World

There is a new art installation in town and it’s very whimsical! The Whimsy World just opened this Saturday February 9th and is going to be open till the end of the month. It’s not going to be here that long so I suggest grabbing your tickets while you can. Houston artist Shelbi Nicole has created an amazing interactive art installation just outside of downtown. This art installation is set up in an old warehouse and is perfect for getting a great Instagram shot. I’ve been fortunate to learn about Shelbi through my boss Carrie who is very big on the Houston art scene. I’m a big fan of Shelbi and her unique art style. I got to attend the opening night of the installation and was blown away! There are 11 different installations and even more places for amazing photo opportunities. I love all these new interactive pop ups that are all about making Instagrammable moments for people. It is so important these days that new places have Instagrammable moments to get people in the door to post and share. I wanted to give you an inside view of what all the installations look like so you can properly prepare your outfit and know exactly what’s in store.

2. MELLOW YELLOW

A pretty yellow backdrop with bulbs hung down from the ceiling- I love this one because it resembles bubbles floating all around you.

3. BLOB BATH

One of my favorite in the collection because it is so fun. There is a bathtub for you to sit and pose in and a raincloud above you that lights up and has crystals hanging from it resembling rain and a thunderstorm.

Woodle wall is simple but oh so fun! It is a wall filled of different colored cones.

These fun pigs are practically flying- so perfect to pop up behind them.

11.     PAINT BRUSH WALL

This one was a big hit because you can more the big brush back and forth and it makes it look like you are actually painting the wall.

12. BEYONCE BATHROOM

This is the best bathroom I have ever seen. The bathroom walls are covered in hundreds of mini Beyoncé’s all over the wall!
