Go Green  

Do you love the idea of incorporating greenery into your home but can’t keep a houseplant alive?  Don’t fret, you’re not alone.

Inspired by our spring pop-up, The Greenhouse, we are looking at the best ways to bring the beauty of nature indoors without the maintenance.

You no longer need a green thumb to enjoy the colour and ambiance of indoor plants. Selecting the right high-quality faux greenery can give you a lush look — without the watering or fuss.

Many of our favourite stores have a wide variety of artificial greenery which are so realistic it can be hard to tell the difference. Unlike their counterparts who require watering, pruning, potting and re-potting, all these plants needs is an occasional dust!

There are other benefits to choosing artificial over the real thing.  If you have a dark corner or a room that doesn’t get much sun in winter, a fake fern or fiddle will thrive all year round.

It’s also a great way to incorporate exotic plants that aren’t normally keen on our fickle Melbourne weather. By using artificial greenery, you can bring a lush jungle vibe to one room, and desert succulents to another.

Here are our favourite ways to bring life to your home without needing a green thumb.
