NEA – The flower kingdom

NEA is one of the places which became popular among locals really fast. One thing I really appreciate is that it doesn’t look like an ordinary shop, but like a gallery for flowers.

Usually when I am in the area I cannot miss a visit to NEA, even if it is only to say “Hello” to the charming Zheni – florist and the owner of the place. 

Flowers are placed at eye level in clear glass vases so you can see them in their all glory. They contrast with the grey decor perfectly. Splendid flower arrangements are everywhere around the shop.

There you will also find good examples of kokedama – a Japanese variant of bonsai, a ball of soil, covered with moss, on which an ornamental plant grows. It has become an internet craze lately.

My personal favourite are the terrariums in glass bowls with cacti and succulents, which look like little green masterpieces. Be sure to check them!

NEA can be found on Instagram as well – I recommend to follow them for your daily flower art inspiration.
