gorgeous living room

I was over on Design*Sponge and found this interior by Jessica Helgerson. This living room is gorgeous. I want that lamp, and the plant in the vase, and ..and..

I love plants inside, both in vases and in pots. I think that using an oversided branch instead of flowers is so effective. It feels zen-like to me. And those vases/bottles are so cool.
We have a 6 foot Japanese Acer that we bought for the balcony at the last place. We couldn't face loosing him so we brought him with. Now he lives in the balcony, in a yellow recycled pot and seems quite happy. His leaves have changed colour because of the shift in temperature/location etc, within a week he had gone from red leaves to green leaves. I think he might prefer to be outside in the long term but for now, he's upstairs with us.


  1. I love this place too. This indeed is a dream house (but how long will the tree last in mere water, I wonder?). Is it anything like what you are planning to do?

  2. I don't really know how long it might last, perhaps it was a decr/photographic decision but it might be something to do with hydroponics?
