Flowers to beautify the home

Flowers and plants, whether real or artificial, makes the home more lively especially the colors paired with the interior. Since two sides of our living room are red while  the other two are cream, I tend to put more reds by those walls.

This is an artificial gerbera I bought from Ikea long ago, still looks new, well because I dust it every now and then. So which do you prefer? The ones you should water or the ones you should dust? :)
