No matter what time of the year it is, I love using greenery throughout my home. Incorporating greenery in places here and there can create an environment that pulls the outside in. This in return makes the interior of the home feel more relaxed. I truly think that every room needs some type of greenery. Here are a few ways I like to incorporate greenery throughout our home.
Adding greenery to vases is always a great addition to an area of your home. I prefer to use fresh foliage I find around our home or sometimes pick up some fresh stems at the local store. I normally choose some type of Eucalyptus because we all know that is well known for its scent and mood enhancement properties. It also is pretty easy to find locally and looks great in a vase either paired with fresh flowers or even by itself.
Another option is using faux greenery. You will definitely have more choices with faux and here are a few of my favorites. I’m loving this faux green grass stem by Hearth & Hand by Magnolia. It is full, comes in different lengths, and is very reasonably priced. This Pottery Barn Bay Leaf Branch is also another one that looks realistic and is large enough for a decent size vase. Keep in mind you can always cut the bottom of the stem if needed. I am also loving this Preserved Willow Eucalyptus by Hearth & Hand.
Faux or Live Trees
Faux and Live trees are on the rise and have been for a while now. I am noticing more and more retailers carrying faux trees that look very close to the real thing! I think that most people are realizing how much they love the look of a taller green addition to the design, but also realize how much work it takes to keep one alive inside. Personally, after having several fiddle leaf trees myself, faux may be your best bet here.
As I stated above, there are lots of faux options out there that I’m loving right now and my first pick would be the one I have from Home Depot. This 82 in. Artificial Olive Tree requires no maintenance and looks great when housed in a basket. Another option is the 48” Faux Olive Tree from World Market. Although this Crate & Barrel Faux Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Tree is a little pricier, I have to say she is a large beauty and would be a great addition to any room design.
Plants in Pots
Plants in pots are much easier to keep alive and manage in my opinion. So if you’re set on doing real live greenery this may be the way to go. There are a variety of indoor potted plants that you can choose from. Several stores such as your local Lowes or Home Depot carry potted plants such as this Money Tree Plant or this small Fiddle Leaf Plant.
If you’re still not up to taking care of a real plant in a pot, there are plenty of faux options out there. This Mini Fern Houseplant from Pottery Barn is the cutest and would be great for shelf styling or on a bathroom counter.
If you are looking to add a little greenery within your kitchen or dining area, planting herbs in small pots is another option. Not only does this add a natural element, but this would also be really efficient. This is something I’ve always wanted to do, but never took the time to do it. If I decide to take this journey or do a DIY herb garden in my kitchen, you will be the first to know.
