The Best Life Like Artificial Plants to Buy Right Now For Home Decor
Not that long ago, faux plants were not considered a staple for interior designers. They were often disregarded for not looking real enough. Fast forward to current times, artificial flora is being praised by designers and influencers alike. Faux plants have gone from being a faux pas to pleasantry. For those of us who have restrictions that make it difficult for us to be plant parents, such as living in homes that lack adequate light for plants to thrive, busy schedules, have curious pets and small children or lack of a green thumb this is an appealing prospect. It allows you to bring in the joy of natural greens without all of the hard work.
Given that spring is in the air and adding greenery is on our minds, our designers at Spacejoy have put together a list of the best fake plants you can buy.
