Time to go faux?
From finding your zen with fresh green succulents, to adding a pop of Pinterest to that lonely living room corner, 2017 is the year to up your greens. With ‘greenery’ announced as Pantone’s colour of the year, and the hustle of everyday living inspiring the desire to create our own urban jungle, now is the time to go faux. Our affordable artificial selection tick ‘stylish’ off the bucket list, without wasting dollar on real-deal plants that are destined to droop. Sit yourself comfortably in our faking-it forest, and prepare to be Venus Fly-trapped by the interior trend that’s planted firmly in our hearts this season.
Black faux plants £2, copper faux plant £5
Sure to inspire productivity, breathe life to a room and upgrade an empty shelf from gloom to bloom, bringing the outdoors in has caught the attention of a whole new generation of gardeners. But with no ability to keep things alive too much on our plates to maintain a strict plant-care regime, we need ‘adulting’ S.O.S. As ever, Primark got ‘yo back. Here to assist with those jungalow vibes, our artificial plants are seriously Insta-worthy, and start from only €£2 – sit that watering can down.
Diffuser £1, faux orchid £4
In the modern day world, escaping the digital realm requires more than simply ‘logging out’. When it comes to reconnecting with all things natural, a #nofilter snap of a juicy green succulent just isn’t cutting it. Our growing need to spend more time outdoors is blossoming, but without a garden, balcony or local park to put those green fingers to work, what’s a millennial to do? Ready to sow the seed of hip green living and embrace all things herbalicious, we’re doing what every savvy socialite does in the year 2017 – fake it ‘til you make it.
We’re revisiting our interior roots this season and craving the Scandi-style décor that entwined our hearts in 2016. Liven up stark white walls and sparse coffee tables with a touch of tropical, from leafy greens to minimal cacti, it’s a plant party on our living room shelf. Bringing botanicals to the bedroom is a guaranteed mood-lifter, while positioning plant pots in the bathroom takes freshness even further. Keep it calm, and spread the serenity, with our steal of a collection: dreamy on-trend décor without the high maintenance? Yes please. Let’s face it, gardening gloves probs won’t suit your outfit anyway.
