Let me preface this by saying, I’m a LIVE plant type of person. I prefer real plants to artificial, BUT (you knew there was a ‘but’ coming)… lately I’m struggling. Spring is just around the bend and I’m craving plants & greenery. However, since moving into our new home, I’ve basically killed every single one of our plants. I have one left that is barely hanging on. Even though the house feels and looks bright, we don’t have as much natural light and there are only windows on two sides of the house, which is kind of weird. It’s also not ideal for my sun loving plants. Rather than spending more money on plants that will probably not thrive here, I’m seriously thinking this will be the house I sprinkle in a faux plant here and there. Yes, it makes me kind of sad, but any “plant” is better than no plant at all. You know me- it HAS to be convincing though. I’ve started my search and am sharing my finds…
Eventually, when it comes time to renovate our entryway and staircase, I’d love to splurge on a big tree. I’m thinking at least 6 feet tall, but who knows when that will happen… most likely not soon, but I’m pinning them for later!

These days I’m really attracted to olive and citrus trees- they feel so classic. I’m also liking the palm varieties!
I’m also loving plants and small trees styled on a kitchen countertop or island. The above image is seriously making me want to renovate our kitchen ASAP, just so I can buy a cute little lemon or rosemary tree for the counter.
If you’re looking for planters for any of your very convincing faux beauties, check out this post. Are you team real plant? Faux plant? Do you like to mix both depending on your lighting situation? I think I’m going to have to get over the fact that this house isn’t great for lots of live plants (sadly). I’ll probably end up on team mix live & faux. I’m turning over a new leaf (see what I did there?), ha!
I hope you guys are having a good week so far! I’m kind of struggling through it, to be honest. We’re wrapping up the bathroom (come back for the reveal later this week) and it has been extremely busy. It’s all worth it though! SO excited to share.
