I love the life a plant brings to a room. Especially big, green leafy plants like the fiddle leaf fig.
I had a large fiddle leaf fig in our previous home, that lived with us for years. But when we moved it got damaged and so I've been without for almost 2 years. I know the fiddle leaf fig decorating trend was all the rave last year, even making them hard to find and quite pricey at one point. Last week, I popped into Home Depot and picked up this little one for $7. I know it's not as big and as tree-like as the one in the above picture, but for the price, I was okay starting out with a smaller one that I can grow. I re-potted it and added this basket from Target.
This corner of my dining room gets lots of light and and is really bare, so this is where it landed. I'm not sure why, but I usually do pretty well with houseplants. It might be because the minute the sun comes up, I turn off every light and open all the shutters and shades to let the natural light flood in. I thrive on sunlight!
How are you with houseplants? Do you incorporate them in your home decor?
