As we've all noticed, the Fiddle Leaf Fig has taken over the design world. You can spot one in almost every amazing home the internet. For good reason, they are gorgeous plants that are often large in scale and add great natural texture that brings a sense of "life" to a space. They have a way of "finishing off" a room. Bloggers are nuts over this house plant and we're in good company. Take a look at the following images, these spaces are the works of some of our favorite Designers who share the love for the Fiddle Leaf Fig...
Joanna and Chip Gaines used one in the ah-mazing foyer at the Magnolia House B&B.
Nate and Jeremiah have one in their swoon worthy Dining Room.
Jonathan Adler used two in this fabulous space.
While the Fiddle Leaf Fig provides instant beauty and easily fits in to any design, there have been mixed reviews on the level of maintenance they require. Some swear that they are the easiest plants to care for, while other have said that they are fickle and temperamental. One thing is certain, they are not inexpensive (especially if you want a large one) and it can be disappointing to invest in one and have it die. Luckily, faux plants have come a long way in recent years. Some higher end versions look so realistic it's hard to tell the difference between a real one and a fake one at first glance. Take a look at this faux Fiddle Leaf Fig I just got for my office...
I placed it in a large basket "planter" to make it look more authentic.
Although I usually would prefer to have a real plant over a faux plant, this has been great solution for me. I'm able to move it from room to room and place it wherever I wish without worrying if it has the right amount of light.
The best part is that I can store it away in our storage room when it's time for the Christmas tree to come out.
To anyone who may have heard me snub faux plants in the past, I take it back.
