I’m in the mood for some florals in the apartment Sally and I share. Actually, I’m in the mood to complete re-decorate, recover, and rearrange everything in our apartment but flowers seem like a more economical solution to switching things up. I loooove, love, love fresh flowers. But here is the thing – I have a hard time keeping plants and flowers alive. Orchids are suppose to last longer than 3 weeks, right? And it just seems wasteful to keep buying orchids and other flowers when they barely get any face time with me (re: I’m never home) and their chances of making it are slim to none.
Well my office and I were having a discussion about faux florals yesterday… And even though they have kind of a bad reputation, I want to bring them back in style because they will work with my current lifestyle. There is NO shame in having a realistic faux phalaenopsis orchid in a pretty pot (I want this one) sitting in my living room. And bedroom. The pros: they don’t die, bugs don’t come to visit them, visitors will see them and assume you have your shit together. The cons: the realistic ones are not exactly cheap, if people get real close to them they will know you’re faking it, and obviously at the end of the day it’s a faux floral and not the real deal.
So if anyone has a great source for great faux orchids, please hit me up.
