7 ways to style pampas grass
In the past few years, artificial pampas grass has became a ‘must-have’ home accessory. You have likely seen lots of fluffy pampas grass while scrolling your Instagram feed, positioned elegantly in your favourite influencers homes. British television personality Stacey Solomon even made headlines with her Pampas Christmas tree back in December 2022, and has since added other pampas grass accessories to her home in creative ways. Now whether pampas grass Christmas trees are to your taste are not, there are plenty of ways to add this gorgeous tall grass to your home and elevate your decor in a modern way.
Before we get in to our favourite ways to style faux pampas grass indoors, we’d like to share our number one top tip. When adding pampas grass to your home, we recommended opting for Faux Pampas grass over real. Artificial pampas gives you the same fluffy look without any of the mess or care. Real pampas sheds, meaning you’ll be picking up the vacuum more than ever. Not only can you avoid this mess by opting for artificial pampas grass, you also have more colour options, allowing you to match your faux pampas perfectly to your decor. You can also save money by opting for faux pampas grass. As it's long-lasting and low maintenance, one purchase and you're set!
Contempee price their artificial pampas grass at just £19.99 for five stems. Check out our artificial pampas product range by following this link.
Now getting to the question at hand; how to style faux pampas grass. We’ve included 7 ideas below.
1. GO BIG AND MAKE A STATEMENT
We all want to wow our family and friends with beautiful decor. A sure way to do this is to be bold and make a statement! Tall pampas grass does just that, adding height and texture to empty corners stunning your guests, especially when paired with a beautiful large statement vase. We love the way @our_home_style has styled our tall faux pampas grass and aria vase below. What an impact!

2. A NATURAL, BOHO TOUCH
Boho decor combines natural elements with colourful patterns, textures and eclectic pieces for a relaxed, earthy vibe. Artificial pampas is a great way to add that natural element, and it’s fluffy, soft form helps to achieve a laid-back feel. If boho is your aim, we recommend opting for neutral colours such as our brown, beige, or cream. You can even mix a few stems of each of these colours and arrange them in the same vase. As natural pampas grass would have some colour variation, combining these earthy colours helps to achieve the desired natural look. If you fancy a challenge, you could make your own arrangement, combining our faux pampas stems with dried flowers and other grasses.
3. ADD COLOUR
While pampas grass is traditionally neutral, faux pampas grass allows you to get creative and colourful! Adding colour to your home has been coined ‘dopamine decor’ by colour and design consultant Suzy Chiazzari, as pops of feel-good colours can evoke happiness. If you want to boost your mood by adding pops of colour, artificial pampas grass is a modern option. Contempee have lots of colour options, from muted Dusk Pink to vibrant Magenta or Livid. Just pop the artificial pampas stems in a simple vase such as our Outline Black Vase and let the colour do the talking!
4. DECORATE FOR THE SEASONS
Artificial pampas grass offers versatility, making it a great accessory for every season. We especially love to see our faux pampas in autumnal displays. Dark brown pairs perfectly with the rusty oranges and dark neutrals of the pumpkin season, with the fluffy stems mimicking an autumnal field in the great outdoors. Our white pampas is perfect for winter wonderland Christmas displays and looks great amongst snowy festive scenes.
5. FRONT AND CENTRE
Every dinner table needs a star piece at the centre of the table, and pampas can be just that! Our Faux Pampas looks great front and centre, giving your dining display height and beauty without the mess of real flowers. We recommend using a large tray in the centre of your table to pair everything together. Place your vase and faux pampas grass on the tray with a few other items varying in height, such as a candle, ornament or small houseplant. For the best final result remember to adhere to the interior design rule of three. Things arranged in odd numbers are more appealing, memorable, and effective than even-numbered groupings!
6. GO DARK
Black adds a sense of drama and intrigue to your space. If you’ve not yet taken the plunge, it can be daunting to add such a dark colour to your decor. But black is the perfect way to create an interesting and clean contrast, especially when paired with lighter neutrals and white. We adore the monotone look of black and white, so if you have a plain white wall try adding some of our black pampas grass for a dramatic contrast! We’ve found this helps to create depth in your home while maintaining clean lines.
7. GET CREATIVE!
Finally, get creative! If Stacey Solomon’s Christmas tree proved anything it’s that you really can do whatever you like with real and artificial pampas. You can add it to your walls as seen below, or style it more traditionally in a statement vase. If you’re unsure what type of vase to go for, check out our recommended vase pairings.
