When I was wrapping up a formal entry/foyer/stairway/landing earlier this summer, I suddenly had a vision of the little finishing touch that would bring the space to life: a pair of ball topiaries potted in terra cotta on the console table. (No, not specific at all!)
Guess what? No one sells live indoor topiaries in the summer. They are a "holiday item." Can you even?
I now know more than I ever would have thought about topiaries. They are typically made with ivy or moss (for low light) or boxwood, rosemary, or olive for outdoors/ full sun. And every major catalog with a traditional leaning carries fake ones, starting in the fall.
Here are some examples of topiaries in interiors.
And a round up of some (fake) ones to be purchased.

I'm holding out for the real deal--coming soon.
