The weather is anything but predictable these days, am I right? That’s why many of us rely on faux greenery to save our sanity at this time of year, when it seems like spring will never arrive.
It’s great that different shades and shapes of faux greenery work well together in a room. A petite bush, floral stem, a handsome wreath will transform your space from drab, sad winter to delightful spring – even if the windchill is 11 degrees here in Massachusetts.
Another nice thing about faux greenery is its versatility – meaning pieces work well when placed in a variety of receptacles, tucked nicely onto a shelf or mantel - or simply hung on a wall with some classic twine.
A little swag of greenery brings some welcome texture to flat and smooth spaces, and because the faux greenery resembles nature, some stems or bouquets amp up the natural vibe you have going in your modern farmhouse.
Here are the goods we’re enjoying this month as we freshen up some rooms:
Add a little whimsy to your home with our best-selling, green hanging hops! The texture and design are just what you need to add a little faux green life to your decor. Picture these bright and cheery hops inside a vessel; it looks fantastic in the Zelma urn below! We have some friends with seasonal allergies, so that’s another plus for decorating with faux greenery - no sneezes, just pleases.
This beautiful wreath just sings, “I don’t care if there’s still eight inches of white stuff out there, I’m a circle of green happiness!” Multi-tonal greens and big eucalyptus branches have us asking for more of the warm vibes this wreath brings.
Vintage farmhouse windows remain popular with our Rose Buds, but if you want a little pizazz to go with some creamy or natural-shaded wood, hang this handsome fella’ or his little brother, shown below.
Of course, wreaths also complete a room when placed on a door, wall, above the mantel or even in front of some circular artwork or a mirror.
I love the way the tiny branches and leaves spring out from this tiny wreath. When you’ve got a smaller space that needs some attention, this is ideal. Or, these always look good around a pedestal or tall candlestick as a table centerpiece. The flatware will be green with envy.
Speaking of candlesticks and candles, these baby greens are a simple solution when shifting from winter to spring colors around the house. Taper candle holders come to life with just a touch of green that brightens the room. These rings - so soft to the touch - can also be added to a candelabra or chandelier.
OK, but you might be in the market for a home for all of this fresh, faux greenery. Take a look at this set of two tall, carved urns. They’re simple, gorgeous, natural-toned, and make a spectacular statement. The natural, dark lines on these urns create a lovely contrast on the creaminess of the base. Here’s the ideal home for your faux stem greenery and faux flowers. Because of their natural tones and size, they're versatile and look great indoors on a deep shelf or even placed on a stand on the porch or deck. They also make a great gift. Here’s a thought: keep one for yourself and pass along the other to a good pal.
These days when we’re all a little stressed and anxious, there’s one surefire way to bring someone out of the blahs - a surprise gift. A faux green plant already settled in a cute little pot - what could get easier? Your pal will love this abundant bush that feels great to the touch.
Get two, one for you and one for a friend, and enjoy matching greens. These are at home on a pedestal in your space or it can take up residence on the porch of your modern farmhouse.
Until you can enjoy some live plants out in the warm sunshine, these greens can add a burst of brightness and life to your space and, hopefully, that will do the trick and get you through to spring. No green thumb? No worries. You can enjoy the warm feeling that greenery brings - no watering required!
