My New House Plant


BEFORE

Do you all remember this corner of my living room mentioned earlier this year on this post?  Pretty desolate, I know.  Well, a few weeks back I found just the plant to grace this spot.  Unfortunately this poor giant Bird of Paradise was looking like it came straight from Hades.  So I waited until it leafed out a little and here it is.  Still not perfect but getting there.


AFTER

I find it amazing what a difference in the warmth value of the room a little house plant will make.  This spot is H.O.T. -- in a good way!  Now hop on over to the ubber cool blog Chic Modern Vintage to read my guest post on House Plant Containers and Decorating Styles.

Hi Catherine! Blogger is being finicky and won't let me comment :( So I'm here to say the plant is perfect! I have a spot in my bedroom that I've been "plant searching" for- might have to wait now till we see where we end up! :)

Your plant looks great! I have a palm tree I love which has developed spider mites and I'm trying to save it. Thankfully none of my other plants have got infected, so I'm hoping I caught it in time. Your plant will look awesome once it's all filled in and fluffed up!

Looks great and I think the pot and the plant compliment the decor. Go over to Chic Modern Vintage now...

Love it. Has a very British Colonial vibe that I so adore (especially in this heat!). Hope your weekend was great Catherine!

What a difference! I love this plant. I go back and forth with putting something like that on our porch - yours is beautiful!

I love large plants in rooms, it's always nice to have something living in your space. I once saw a room with large plants flanking both sides of the opening to the room. I loved that look.
