When it comes to decorating your home…there is just something awesome about adding plants to the decor. However, if you are anything like me and your thumb leans more toward brown than green, adding living plants to your home may not be the best idea. Another, less time consuming and water-dependent option is to use silk plants. I recently received some beautiful succulent plants through Silk Plants Direct. I am so excited to show you how well they incorporate into my existing decor. These beautiful succulents were provided by the good folks at CSI Soundcore.
I was definitely impressed with the quality of these potted succulents. They are very realistic and are well made. I received two larger succulents that I am using in combination with a set of 6 smaller succulents. All around, they look so nice together and definitely compliment my overall design.
Succulents can definitely add a little greenery and life to your living room or bedroom.
Here are some helpful tips on decorating with succulents:
Add succulents to shelves on bookcases or walls
Succulents can be used to add a little color or texture to shelf spaces. Add them to bookshelves or floating shelves. Succulents look great mixed in with other items like vases, books, and picture frames.
Choose succulents that complement your existing decor
You can find succulents potted in many different styles and colors. You can buy succulents and pot them yourself or you can buy them potted. Not only are there a large variety of succulent plants ranging from large to small, but they come in various colors as well. Choose the succulents you prefer, but then also choose the pots for your succulents that coordinate well with your space. For me and my space, it is mostly black and white and wood, so the white textured pots were absolute perfection on my shelves.

Feature different sizes of succulents
A great way to decorate with succulents is also to arrange differently sized succulents together. By placing a small succulent alongside a larger succulent, you can give some height and dimension to your decor.
Avoid having to remember to water plants with silk plants
One of the wonderful things about silk succulents is, while a live succulent requires water and sunlight, a silk succulent does not. This makes decorating with a silk succulent a much easier process and opens up far more possibility. You don’t have to be concerned about placement and the proximity to sunlight. Also, since they do not require water you can place them high on a shelf and not worry about having to reach them with water.
Overall, I feel the benefits of decorating with silk succulents is great and I am very pleased with the quality of the succulents from Silk Plants Direct.
