Decorating with indoor trees, Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

I recently {and finally} moved a few items around in our living room/great room and have an open corner that is just screaming for a bright green, large leafed and substantial indoor tree. Back in LA, I’d always opt for large palms or Banana Leaf trees for indoors, but I’m not exactly sure a palm would last up here, or if they even sell them at the local nurseries. And really, I think this room calls for a little something else.

But I’d love a large-leafed and floppy tree to fill the space, soften the corner and counter all the pine needles outdoors. I think it would add a nice pop of green and bring life to the room as well.

I immediately gravitate toward the Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree {above} because they’ve been in nearly every home decor magazine photo for the past few years. However, I hate to be too trendy and thought I may as well look around for other options… and then decided to share my search here.

I’m leaning towards the umbrella tree, and the large-leafed tree in the photo directly below… but also kind of loving the fruit trees {can you keep fruit trees in your home?}… if you know what any of these are {or if I’ve gotten any names or links wrong, please let me know}

    We have a large (fake) plant in our living room. I love draping lights over it during the holidays…so pretty!

    Considering the odds of survival i think the ficus tree should work. Fruit trees do require more sunlight and warmth.

    I live in Vancouver, WA and have a Meyer lemon tree indoor- it makes 10ish lemons every year, but look pretty scraggly for the rest of the time.

    I’ve been looking for something similar. I love the big tall basket in the first picture. And I never thought to look for something ‘large-leafed’ but that is exactly what I need in our large, sunny living room. Thank you for the great pics and ideas!

    Oh, and Anonymous (above) is a douche bag. Ignore him/her/it.
