Sometimes you have a room that is full of furniture and artwork and has paint on the walls but still seems to be lacking that “finishing touch.” That’s where ivy comes in. They help soften the edges of furniture to create a more comfortable environment. Ivy plants come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. From variegated ivy to just a solid green color, there is sure to be a style for everyone.

Where can Ivy Plants go?
- Cascading ivy plants work well on top of hutches, tall bookshelves, fireplace mantles, on top of kitchen or bathroom cabinets or on a buffet table, going down the side.
- Small ivy plants can be added to groupings on fireplaces, in a bookshelf or sideboard. They can also be combined with books, candles, figurines and/or photos.
- Some large ivy plants can be placed on the floor in a pot or in a tall urn.
- Ivy can also be placed on a wall shelf. Instead of adding more artwork, find a fun corbel or wall shelf and place a cascading ivy plant in it.

All of our ivy is made to be botanically correct. So correct in fact, a customer went away, and their house keeper watered her ivy plants, thinking they were real!

Right now at Experience and Creative Design, certain ivy is 75% off! There is always a place you can put an ivy, so stop by Experience and Creative Design and pick your up today!
