Staging Accessory: Greenery

    Go-to prop: Fake tree or plant

    Stager: Michelle Boyle, owner of California Chic Staging Co., Roseville, Calif.

    Why I love it: “So many people use awful and outdated greenery in homes. Spending the money on really great greenery makes all the difference when creating a look and feel for a home. You want a fresh, modern piece to help accessorize the space.”

    Make it work tips: 

    • Learn the difference between a “good” fake tree and a “not so good” one. Typically, the better ones cost a lot more, but not always. Scout out places like Home Goods or Target. Some types of trees and plants can pull off being fake versus real much better, such as succulents, grasses, and Boyle’s personal favorite — the fiddle leaf fig tree.
    • A great place for adding greenery in a home is large empty corners of a room, coffee and side tables, and in bathrooms.
    • Don’t overdo it. Use fake greenery sparingly, such as one or two pieces in the main living room and one in each room thereafter.
