fiddle dee dee

I spy a fiddle leaf fig tree.

Everywhere.

If you haven’t noticed them yet, then you’re a little late to the party. But that’s okay, I live in Montana and everyone’s late to the design/trend party here.

Not everyone, but you get the gist.

This is the fiddle leaf fig tree, and not only does it make a style statement, adding a living, breathing house plant to any space is a good idea!cfe56b4ead01a43d827f479c32ab5176

They look fantastic when flanked in an entryway or used in a space when you’re looking for a sense of symmetry

The pop of green really adds some personality in this otherwise neutral space.

Looks great just about anywhere…

But I love the rug in here!

Even though I do love a good basket, I put him?her? in a dolly tub.

IMG_20150317_092356See how it is the perfect thing for this corner and completes the space.

Well, it’s not really complete…

Still need trim

finished stair railing

etc. etc. etc.

  1. I have been dying to try one of these!! Please post about his/her health!! I hear they are easy to care for but I do not have a good history with houseplants. Love the look! I can grow things outside but I have never done well with inside plants. I am anxious to hear your thoughts!!

      Hi Cindy
      My fiddle leaf had a few issues when I purchased it, so it was deeply discounted. I think he’ll ( I geuss he’s a him) be fine. He’s in a great corner with plenty of light and needs to be watered once a week. I will keep you posted!!
