Plants & Greenery

Nothing softens an interior space, makes it feel more relaxing, more lived-in than plants and greenery. Without greenery, any room seems sterile, unfinished. Whether potted succulents, grasses, vining ivy, floor plants, plantings for bookcase, tabletop or credenza…they all transport the natural freshness of the outdoors indoors. Greenery is the most versatile of all botanicals. It complements any color or décor scheme, never clashes. Shop Distinctive Designs Plants & Greenery.

Trees & Floor Plants

Our large floor plants, topiaries, and trees are base-priced in a black plastic nursery liner, (just like growing trees at the nursery) for inserting in your own decorative planter. The liner employed for each tree is sized to provide enough weighted footprint to accommodate the tree’s height and branch spread, so the tree stands solidly upright and is not tippy. To determine if a tree’s standard liner will fit your planter, provide the interior height, width, and depth of your desired planter. Alternately, if your planter provides enough weight and footprint, we can plant the tree in a liner that will fit it.

When ordered in one of our decorative planter options, your tree will be fully planted with ground cover and delivered as one unit with no assembly required.

Shop Distinctive Designs Trees & Topiaries.

Stem Flowers

Silk stem flowers casually dropped in vases appear natural and fresh-cut, just like fresh flowers. “Drop-ins” are an easy, inexpensive way to fill every room with colorful flowers that do not wither or wilt. Similarly, create tabletop décor right out of a fashion magazine with artificial fruit or vegetables mounded in decorative bowls or compotes. No design expertise required!

Create this look in your home or next project.

Floral Arrangements

Whether grand or simple in design, floral arrangements add natural color to any space and are often the most striking focal point in a room. The best stem flowers are so technically advanced that they look (and sometimes even feel) exactly like fresh-cut flowers. Arranged in vases complementing the room’s decor, they always make a statement. Shop Distinctive Designs Floral Arrangements.

BEHR 2019 Color of the Year – Blueprint

The 2019 Behr Color of the Year is Blueprint, a color lush with positivity and strength.
