To Fig, Or Not To Fig…
I love the fiddle fig tree. And you can hardly look at an interior picture without seeing one.
I like to think of it as a botanical chameleon.
It’s that special type of plant that has the uncanny ability to add warmth and texture to an ultra modern or neutral interior, while at the same time helping a traditional interior feel current and modern.
I’ve been thinking about getting one for my living room.
…and then I remembered that I have a fig tree in my back yard (slaps hand to forehead). Hmmm…. Let’s play around with this.
Granted, it’s not a fiddle fig tree, so the leaves have a more scalloped shape, but they are still interesting, and I feel like I can achieve a similar look. You’ll see.
But first, here are some shots of that lovely fiddle fig:
So here’s how I played around with it in my own home…
(…while I was also playing around with my Afterlite app…)
