My apartment is great, and I feel lucky to have the space we have, but there is one eyesore I can’t get past. We have a large AC unit on our TV wall and I don’t think I can stand looking at it anymore! I’ve never been an indoor plant person (with the exception of my beloved terrarium air plant) but fiddle leaf fig trees are so commonly used in interiors these days, I’m considering giving it a try. Who needs a puppy when you can have a fiddle who, research shows, can require just as much maintenance. These apartment photos are quick photoshop doodads, just to help me get an idea of the effect.

Re-post from The Zoe Report. An inspiring woman with an inspiring message.
I’ve been in Chicago for six weeks now and I just spent my first weekend in the city since moving here – with weddings, graduations and weekends away with friends, it was nice to finally wake up in my bed with nowhere to be. We spent the weekend making the apartment feel like home and filling it with memories, visiting the local flea, and seeing friends. I’ve started a “to eat” list and it grows daily. This city loves to eat, making me feel right at home.

I’ve been a fan of Blu Dot for a while, especially these chairs, which my friend introduced me to. While Blu Dot is already well priced for the unique quality and artful form of its pieces, Target has a line, TOO by Blu Dot (find it here) that is even more affordable, so that good design can truly be possessed by all. This is something I am always in support of and love finding affordable options like these. So take a look around and maybe you’ll welcome a modern moment into your home!

Emerald Faceted Sideboard by Marco Costa
While this piece is extremely project-specific, I love the geometric quality and emerald green (color of the year!). It is very Kelly Wearstler-esque. And anything marked with gold is always better.
