Getting To Know You – Chelsea Neff

Chelsea Neff is a true artist in every form. She has a creative flare that oozes confidence and a vibrancy that captures everyone when she enters a room. We first met Chelsea exactly one year ago (it’s our anniversary) when we reached out to work together for her floral art, Pine New York, to fill our NYFW showroom. It is safe to say that we instantly formed a unique bond that will stand the test of time. Her loving nature completely wraps you and we adore Chelsea beyond words. Chelsea decorates our New York showrooms each season with incredible blooms that match the seasons’ palette and transform the space. Chelsea’s work creates a resounding energy, that could only be PINE NY.

We chat to Chelsea in the NYFW SS19 showroom whilst she was getting to work.

Beauty ritual and products that you swear by?

Currently obsessed with True Botanicals hydration skincare line. I love to take care of my skin religiously but I believe my true “beauty ritual” is what I eat/put inside my body. Plants are the best food for your skin!

What fulfills you?

Knowing that I’m loved.

Do you collect anything?

I have an obsession with grid lined notebooks. I always have a stack of random ones to choose from. McNally bookstore in Nolita sells really cool ones. I could drop lots of money on $9 pens and gridded notebooks in that shop. I think I get this obsession from my dad.

Owning the wife/mom/working life like a boss.

*Tyler and I jokingly (but sort of seriously) want to own a “getaway” ranch in Montana. I’d have a garden and some horses and we’d go on mini vacations there with our kids.

Ten years

Owning the wife/mom/working life like a boss.

 

Family is most important to me! If I can continue Pine while being the greatest mother and wife, life will be so full and beautiful.

Words of wisdom for those reading?

Confidence in a woman is so beautiful. Know your worth! Know who you are so no one else can tell you otherwise. Do this and you’ll most likely find yourself a pretty dreamy man who treats you how you deserve!  My biggest fan and encourager is my husband. He admires the confidence I have in myself and in my floral designs and continues to push me out of my own comfort zone to be better. Confidence is key!

 

What is your favourite colour of the rainbow?
