One goal I set for myself this summer is to finally get our house in order, design-wise. The master bedroom is the only room in the house that’s “mine” to decorate how I want. I want to focus on injecting more color into my home, and flowers are an easy way to do that.
Living in the Pacific Northwest, I find keeping plants alive damn near impossible. Our apartment gets amazing light during the summer months, but the rest of the year it’s just not bright enough. I even tried growing low-light plants with no success. It sucks because I want to inject more plants and flowers into my home decor. It’s also a huge waste of time and money to keep throwing away dead plants!
So when Commercial Silk Int’l. contacted me about using their silk plants to decorate my apartment, I jumped at the chance to try out their potted flowers. I chose a bright yellow and pink orchid, which adds a major punch of color to a mostly black, white, and grey bedroom.
To be honest, this is the first time I used silk flowers instead of real ones. I was really curious how it would look, and I have to say it’s perfect. It’s so realistic looking that when it arrived, my husband texted to ask if he should water it!
If you have a black thumb, or live somewhere that makes growing plants impossible, I highly recommend checking out Commercial Silk’s website. They have flowers, plants, trees, and even outdoor boxwood hedges you can use to cover up unsightly air conditioners or trash cans without the high maintenance of actual shrubs!
My next purchase may very well be their fiddle leaf fig tree – a plant I’ve heard is insanely hard to keep alive, but I really want to add to my bedroom or home office!
