It’s been some time since I posted a local treasure, although my region is full of talented people who end up creating handcrafted art. I’m not very much into Romanian interior design (I have my reasons, folks 😉 ), so I could not tell the same about that. However, there is one Romanian designer, Irina Neacșu, to whom I would hand over my home to create an interior design proposal without any hesitation (not that it would need a redesign).
Irina Neacșu is a designer and botanical artist, a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists, and founder of the Romanian Society of Botanical Artists. She drew my attention many moons ago with her botanical textiles, pillows, and upholsteries. In the latest years, she focused more on botanical art and painting. Since I’m totally in love with botanical art, I continued following her and admiring her works on her online Shop. Back in 2016, she moved from Bucharest to Brașov, she opened her own Irina Neacșu Studio and founded an art school, Cembra School of Botanical Art and Design, where she organizes courses and workshops in painting, drawing, textile art or design.
What I love about her work is that she managed to come up with a large palette of ideas, having wall arts, graphics, herbal teas, greeting cards, and even plantable paper (wow!) and wellness products. I gathered a few favorite items below, enjoy!
