How to choose the best Faux Plants.

Unlike real plants where light, humidity and temperature are all important considerations, faux can be used everywhere and anywhere. Look at plants in the same way you would any other accessory. Think about their shape, their colour, their texture and above all play about with style and scale. Mix pointy plants with feathery, small with large, matte with shiny. It's the contrast that bring rooms alive. Our faux not only look just like the real thing but you can add them to places that real plants wouldn't normally thrive. Liven up dark corners or bathrooms, add softness to your kitchen shelves or take the eye to another dimension by popping one or two on your bookshelves.

Styling and Choosing the Pot

.

All AA potted faux plants have been designed with the pot in mind as well as the plant and each one has been firmly set into its own vessel. They are a mix of neutral textured hues that tone beautifully with the colour and shape of the plant. 

Kayden Pot

If you want to mix it up, you may want to cluster them in a hand woven basket or display them in another pot that's more fitting to your decor. Just remember to mix up the materiality of your containers as you would your plants, round with square, wicker with concrete. This will add a natural vibe and that all important texture!

How to care for your Faux Plants.

Faux Plants are relatively fuss free, no need to get the neighbours to pop in and water them while you're away or risk coming home to find them looking sad and shrivelled! Just ensure that you give them a dust every now and then to keep them looking their best or wipe them gently with a soft cloth.

AA's Style Tip.

I like to create little still lives with plants by clustering a few together (succulents look super sweet) and create a mini installation. This is a goto trick I use for every accessory. When you group things as opposed to leaving gaps, your eye takes in the whole vignette and the effect is super impactful.
