The fiddle leaf fig tree has to be the hottest house plant right now. It has been featured in countless design magazines and is a fave of designers Jonathan Adler and Emily Henderson. It has large, floppy leaves that gives it so much character. A full sized tree can run upwards of $350! Something that I am not prepared to spend given my history of having two black thumbs! Check out these beauties...
I have been on the hunt for a fiddle leaf fig plant that is smaller and a little easier to take care of. This plant is native to West Africa, likes light but not too much and lots of warmth and can be a little finicky when placed in a new environment. Great!!! Cold, dry winters in Ottawa probably not the best climate but I'm willing to give this baby a lot of attention and care. Yesterday, my search came to an end at IKEA! And to make it even sweeter, I paid only $7.50! So, no pressure, if my black thumb conquers all, I’m only out $7.50.
A pink room!! I'm not normally big into decorating with pink but, today I'm bringing you a little mood board just in time for Valentine's Day! I would describe this living room as pretty, romantic and feminine.
My must haves for this room:
1. Bold ombre wallpaper
3. Overdyed pink persian rug
4. Statement chandelier
5. 'Nod to fashion' art
6. Starburst mirror
So what do you think?
