Decorating with Faux Floral
Adding flowers to your home can bring a touch of nature, color and beauty to any room. However, not everyone has the time or expertise to keep fresh flowers alive and thriving. This is where faux floral comes in! Faux flowers have come a long way from the plastic and unconvincing options of the past. Today, there are high-quality faux flowers available that look just as beautiful as the real thing. Here are some tips and tricks for decorating your home with imitation stems that will keep your guests wondering.
Choose High-Quality Faux Flowers
When choosing faux flowers for your home, it's important to invest in good quality blooms. Look for flowers that have realistic textures and colors, and avoid flowers that look overly shiny or plastic-like. Hand “pick” your stems in person to get a sense of their quality.
Take your decor to new heights with dramatic faux (or real) branches. In the right vessel, branches can create a very interesting visual element to a foyer, kitchen or other living spaces. Grasses also tend to have a similar effect without the hefty price tag.
Consider the Colors and Textures of your Decor
When choosing faux flowers, consider the colors and textures of your existing decor. If you have neutral-colored walls and furniture, you might want to choose flowers in bold and bright colors to add some pop to the room. If you have a lot of patterns and textures in your decor, you might want to choose flowers with simpler shapes and colors to avoid overwhelming the space.
Use Vases that Complement your Decor
The vase or container you choose for your faux floral arrangement can make a big difference in how it looks in your home. Consider the style and color of your existing decor when choosing a vase or container. If you have a modern and minimalistic style, you might want to choose a simple and sleek vase. If you have a more traditional or vintage style, you might want to choose a decorative and ornate vase.
Display in Natural Light
Finally, when displaying your faux floral arrangements, consider the lighting in the room. Faux flowers can look different depending on the lighting, so try to display them in natural light if possible. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight, which can cause the colors to fade over time.
