I've become a little obsessed with plants lately (even though my track record isn't the best).
I blame Instagram and Pinterest.
Images of eclectic, bohemian-esque rooms with greenery everywhere are suddenly speaking to me. It's probably because I'm changing up the vibe in this house. It might be because this house has such great natural light.
I could also use the excuse that I have a difficult-to-style living room.
This room is huge. It really has two different sitting areas in one large rectangular space. It's tricky. Soooo plants to the rescue.
My first purchase......a fiddle leaf fig from a local nursery.........
Not a cheap plant. Especially if you're good at killing them.
Anyway, as you walk into this monstrous room, straight ahead is a large wall. That large wall is home to our TV stand. The only outlet is about three feet away from where the TV has to be (because of the configuration of this room). Two huge cords hang from that outlet to the TV.
I was dying to cover those cords. But another piece of furniture just didn't make sense there.
That's when I decided I would try a plant grouping next to the entertainment center! This would cover the cords and help fill that open space. I bought two more plants and thought putting them in baskets would add texture. I thrifted the outer baskets and found the middle basket at Target......
When I open my front door now, I'm greeted with greenery instead of a blank wall with a string of cords. It makes me happy.
What would make me even happier?
Keeping my fiddle leaf alive.....
Give me alllll the advice you've got, people.
My fiddle leaf is begging you.
