Studies show that adding greenery to your home or office can help reduce stress and boost productivity. But not everyone has a green thumb – or the time to take care of real plants by watering them regularly, and so on. This is where artificial flowers come in handy. Rather than the types of old, these days artificial flowers look so much like the real thing, you’ll struggle to know the difference. And, when added to a room featuring luxury décor, they will elevate the look, making passers-by happy. For these reasons, faux flowers are increasingly popular choices for busy people who want to bring the outside in, but without the fuss.
In addition to being low maintenance and long-lasting, artificial flowers are hypoallergenic, so people with allergies won’t be bothered by their presence. Since they don’t need to be changed up often, they bring cheery beauty into the home without breaking the bank. Another plus? You can display your favourite flowers all year round, regardless of whether they’re currently in season.
When choosing décor flowers for luxury décor, pair colours that go well together. A red and pink arrangement will look better than a combo of purple and orange. Consider contrast, too. In a monochromatic room, a bold vase of yellow blooms will add an accent colour you can carry through with other décor items or artwork. In terms of materials, silk looks most realistic, while latex feels most realistic.
To brighten up a home office, bookshelf or bathroom counter, why not go for an artificial planter? The flower you choose depends on the look you want. In a living room with chalet furniture, for example, a large yellow hydrangea will add cheery warmth. For a romantic look in a bedroom, place a single-stem rose in a slender vase.
