I realize that some consider “faux” plants a decorating “faux pas.” But, if they look good enough, I consider them a wise investment.
I’m using these three at different spots around our house and think they all pass the “real enough” test. . .
This cabbage succulent is my favorite. I love the size and the edges of the leaves are just brown enough to make it look like a live plant. I’m using it on our coffee table in a blue and white planter. (It’s also on sale for more than half off right now.)
I recently ordered this little preserved boxwood topiary for our entry, but I’ve moved it around several times already. (Are preserved boxwoods considered “faux” or “kind of alive”? Not sure, but either way, but I think they’re such a classic look.) By the way, there’s a 20% off promo code available today.
Now, I’ll admit that I don’t think this succulent looks quite as real up close but I just love the color it brings into the room. The perfect pop of green. It’s a substantial size in a heavy concrete planter, which makes it look a little more modern. It’s also a little pricier than the other two, but obviously, it’s longevity is a plus. ;)
