Finishing Touches: Faux Fruit

An innovative way to style your home

Swap florals for fruit

A minimalist, pared back style is growing in popularity as we all spend more time than ever at home. A contemporary twist on traditional blooms, faux fruit and foliage is a great way to enhance your interior. They’re also easy to arrange effectively, saving you time and effort.

Best of both worlds

It’s a no-brainer: faux fruit will last a great deal longer than fresh. If you love the way your fruit bowl looks but know it won’t last, this is the perfect solution for you (and storing ripe fruit in the fridge is the best way to increase shelf life). We have some incredibly realistic options… 

Lemons – a splash of colour

Figs – looking good enough to eat  

Artichokes – the offbeat option

Rosemary – doubles up as a garnish

Olive leaf – classic greenery
