As the season changes and the temperature cools down, faux florals are the perfect way to bring the outside in and add warm, colorful touches to any room in your house. “Every room in the house could use a change of scenery now and then, or at the very least, seasonally,” says Kym Pelcher, owner of Splurge. “Florals are a great way to bring touches of fall colors into the home, or to inject a pop of new color anytime to really freshen up a space.” Today’s faux florals have really grown in popularity because they look more natural and realistic. “Faux florals have come a long way from where they once were in terms of quality and design. I travel to markets all across the country to find the most current, beautiful stems, which often look almost too real to be faux.” Pelcher says to “try the trend by using delicate sprays on their own to accent a simple tablescape or a mantle, or as part of a larger centerpiece,” such as the Michael Aram “Butterfly Gingko” Centerpiece Vase featured here and sold locally at Splurge. “These sprinklings of color will really invigorate any room.” @ Splurge, 1109 Freeport Road, Fox Chapel. 412.252.2242. splurge-shop.com.
