Interior Design has been moving more and more to bringing nature into the home. Everything from more natural elements like raw wood and natural fibers to (my most favorite things) Plants!! Recently in the plant department, we’ve seen how popular the Fiddle Leaf Fig has been, but move over Fiddle Leaf Fig, there’s a new Sheriff in town: The Olive Tree (and branches) are making a huge impact in the design world. The olive branch has been long known as a symbol of abundance, glory, and peace and it’s fitting to have a tree on display at home.
Olive trees have a more subtle look with their wispy branches and grayish leaves, but they are so workable in almost every design esthetic. Traditional, modern, eclectic, they fit nicely in almost any space. The biggest question you have to ask yourself is if you want a real one or a faux one!
Did you know you can grow them inside a pot? You can go big or small, depending on if you want to fill up an empty corner or just add a splash of whimsical green to your desk. If you consider growing your own tree indoors, be sure to find an area in your home that gets at least 6 hours of daylight. (And because the tree is inside, it most likely will not grow fruit.)
If real plants aren’t your thing (really? They aren’t? Maybe you watered them too much? DM me and I can help with your plant frustrations!) There are PLENTY of beautiful faux options!
