Or the furniture for the plants! Laurel emailed with her design dilemma. “Have you ever done a post of cool rooms that includes large dramatic houseplants? I just staggered home carrying a 6′ fishtail palm and am looking for ideas — a big mirror on the wall behind it is as far as I’ve gotten in my thinking.” I’ve pulled a few from the files Laurel and while only one features a large mirror (great idea) they all have something in common – the 2 “Cs”, containers and care. Dress your palm in a fabulous pot and lavish it with attention. Nothing looks worse than a tatty plastic pot or a tree that has dropped half its leaves from neglect. I love plants in the house although I must admit I’m more a fern on the bathroom window girl. Good luck with your palm. Have you given it a name yet?
