The Perfect Florals for Your Home…
If you love having botanicals in your home, but no patience for real flowers, then faux florals are the way to go. As much as I love investing in a fresh bouquet, it’s not something I can bring myself to spend a whole lot of money on. Instead, getting fresh flowers is a treat. However, so that my home isn’t bare of greenery, I’ve invested in some faux florals.
Investing in faux florals can be tricky. For one thing, you don’t want to waste your money on flowers that look fake. So, how can you guarantee that you get some gorgeous faux florals that will work with your home? Here are my top tips for decorating with faux florals…
GO FOR ‘FAKE’ LOOKING PLANTS.
Your head might have spun with me saying this after I just said that fake looking flowers don’t look great. However, there are some real florals that come in textures that look somewhat fake. Therefore, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what isn’t. An example of this is the rubber plant. The leaves already look fake, so going for a plastic fake one makes sense. Your low-maintenance plant will trick the eye and no one will be the wiser.
Mixing textures when it comes to faux florals is key. Much like nature, you’ll get that mix of style and shape, so you’ll want to bring this into your home. My peony bouquet on my coffee table is a mixture of the blooms and fern greenery. Your eye darts across the whole arrangement. Plus, the texture blur together, getting rid of the edges that hint towards them being faux, tricking the eye.
GO FOR DRY FLOWERS.
If all else fails one your hunt for faux florals, go for dry ones. These are real flowers that have been dried/ preserved to last in your home for a long time. The eucalyptus in my entryway is actually dried but looks so real. Dowsing & Reynolds has an amazing collection that you’re going to want to invest your pennies in. I’m looking forward to buying this fabulous red eucalyptus to create a Fall arrangement come September/ October time.
With dried florals, you’ll get that rustic, muted feel that leans into having a neutral home. Plus, you can create some fabulous arrangements that will draw the eye and become such a focal point in your home.
