To Fiddle Or Not To Fiddle

close up 2

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.

Intermediate Stage: The Living Room

This new sisal rug from Crate & Barrel has completely transformed our living room, bringing in light and really making the room feel alive. Our previous rug, a dark red oriental rug was pretty, but it really weighed down the room. Next on my list is a new swing arm wall sconce and a new coffee table. Some ideas below….

I thought I loved this Crate & Barrel ottoman but Me You & A Wiener took the cake with the reeded legs and gilded accents.

Chiara from The Blonde Salad has a life to be envious of… but that blazer… I would literally give all of my favorite possessions to own that blazer.

See the blazer by Atelier Azza in orange.

and blinged out. Worn by the designer herself!
