Faux real?!

Artificial plants and greenery have always had a bit of a bad reputation on the interiors scene.  Many feel they are just a little bit tacky, but I have grown to love them.  Faux plants are no longer like the dusty blooms your grandma had!  Over the last few years I have seen many tastefully and extremely realistic-looking ones come onto the market.  You just have to look carefully for the really good ones, investing in a quality one is so worth it.  Check out how these stunning spaces are brightened with faux greenery.



Just a few reasons for getting some fakes for your place…

  • You can bend petals, stems and branches to make them look exactly how you’d like.
  • They are low maintenance, no worrying about watering and feeding – just dust!
  • You can mix them in with live greenery and fresh plants so it is much harder to tell the real from the fake!
  • Potted trees work so well in corners of rooms, hallways and to fill empty spaces.
  • They are child friendly  = no mess!
  • They add colour and texture to any room.
  • It is cheaper in the long term, especially if you are anything like me and purchase fresh plants often only for them to perish!
  • They are a good solution for dark areas, bathrooms and laundry rooms, where nothing will grow.


All of these artificial plants are available in store at The Ruby Orchard… see you soon!
