    I’ve never really been a big fan of artificial plants but they now look so real it’s hard to tell. As I tend to kill plants they seem like a really good investment x

    I have been eyeing up that Maidenhair Fern!! I buy so many and I can never seem to keep them alive for more than a season or two – this could be the answer 😉 So much gorgeous in this post though, Carole!! I also love the placemats from An Angel at My Table – their boho range is just to die for. xxx

      I’ve been eyeing it up too Kimberly. Wish it wasn’t so expensive cos I kill the real ones every time too. Maybe it’s cost effective in the long run 🙂

      It’s worth a try Karen. What else is there to do in the lull before Christmas and New Year? 🙂

    That wallpaper! Love it! It’s so strange that I’m occasionally really attracted to such totally OTT (in a good way) items when I usually prefer less pattern. Oh, and the woven bowl, not that’s really me 🙂 xo

      It must be the ‘swoonworthy’ influence Carole. I know what you mean x

    Hmmmm I think the faux-foliage/flower game has been upped since Abigail Ahern launched her range. I worked on a couple of shoots where I was about to trim stems to put them in water and found they weren’t real-very hard to tell!

      It definitely has Tiff! And it’s now cool to go faux. Do you know where those stems you thought were real were from? I’m very cautious about ordering online in case they are rubbish when they arrive. 🙂
