Silk Palm Trees

Most people, when they think of artificial trees, think of a pine tree or Christmas tree. Few would think of the palm tree as a choice in artificial trees. The palm tree not only looks very different from the Christmas tree, it seems to belong to a totally different season and has a very different feel. There are hundreds and hundreds of different styles of palm trees; the same goes with silk palm trees. The most common silk palm tree is a tall, perfect replica of an outdoor palm tree, complete with coconuts if desired. Make sure you are aware of how wide the tree is before you settle on a certain tree. You will need to plan to place the tree at some distance from the wall so the leaves are not smashed against it. For beginners, I would recommend getting a small palm tree to spruce up the bedroom, office, or even the kitchen area.

Designing with Topiaries: Silk or Real

Just as in art, the way things are spaced in interior design is critical to a well-balanced appearance. When you add topiaries to the area you are enhancing, be sure there is enough “breathing room” for the plants. Also, it is helpful to experiment with some of the many designs and sizes of topiaries that exist. The taller, rounder look works well in the workplace. We also recommend that you choose a silk topiary. This way you will not have to worry about water, bugs, or plan food. These trees can also look good in homes and churches. Silk topiaries come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from very small (such as the bonsai plant) to quite large-they can rival the tallest and best Christmas tree! Many arrangements include some topiary elements within a more standard display.

Plants as Interior D├ęcor

As you begin to decorate your house with greenery, first decide on the size of the plants you plan to add. 24-36 inches is the perfect height for plants that will be placed on tabletops. Because these plants are meant to be noticed, choose ones with larger, less delicate leaves. On the other hand, decorating for a corner will require more vertical movement and longer leaves to make it “pop” more for the viewer. The more you plan ahead and experiment with different options, the happier you will be with the final result. If you want a fresh look without the hassle and maintenance of real plants, choose a high-quality silk plant. They last much longer, they aren’t appealing to insects, and they are easy to take care of.
