I like "real" plants but #2 is my fav. Be sure to place it in a substantial basket with dried moss on top so it looks more real

When I read this I thought you wanted us to help pick out your Christmas tree...lol

oh are these fake trees? yeah I have to agree I always buy real plants too. I plan to get a palm tree for the living room soon. Dont know where you live but maybe go with a tree that is found naturally outside in your area... I mean even if its fake it will keep with the real theme.

This is near a heater vent that runs often during the winter so I experience browning. I have real plants throughout the house but I am going artificial for this corner.

Ok in that case.. maybe the cane palm.... maybe think of what height and width you want it to be.. and choose accordingly.

Personally, I think real plants are more appealing. But if a fake tree is necessary, I would go with a species that harmonizes with the brick fireplace a bit more, something like a Japanese Maple or Miniature Oak. Bamboos and palms remind me of the tropics but the bricks remind me of northern climes.

I like that Japanese maple silk tree, it looks pretty realistic. Definitely put it in a nice basket/planter and put dried moss and rocks on top. Happy Holidays!

Ok, also much prefer real, but understand about the vent. As mentioned: put whatever you have into a container that looks like it would hold up a large, real plant. Most fakes come to you in these teeny tiny containers! So, buy a great looking large ceramic or basket and top off with moss.

You could add a real trailing ivy to the pot to increase the "realness". Cheap and easy to change out.

I'm gonna start the conversation about built-ins on either side of your FP, although I can't see the entire room. They would be a great option for filling the corners, would be practical, useful and won't need to be watered or replaced when they die. I bet we could find a better spot for the tree too if we had photos of the rest of the space.

The plant dosent bother me as much as the couch does. It totally seperates what is ment to be a shared room. Try adding a long table(abouth the height of the couch) behind it and move the couch back some to make it look more inviting
