Oak & Broad
From previous comments ""They are original to the home and I believe they are pine, semi-gloss poly.""" ....... I think they may be Pecan/Hickory though, they dont look like a typical pine floro to me.

I recommend speaking with a professional contractor about the beams. We used high gloss paint for the ceilings.

The Ficus Wrangler
You'll want to do a bit of research before investing in a large plant. However, there are many to choose from, because most indoor foliage plants do best in good light, but not direct sun. I checked the link provided above, and while much of the info was good, I have a different take on a couple of important points. (I'm a professional interior horticulturist, and I've taken care of hundreds of fiddle leaf figs, in all kinds of light.) It's not best to keep it "evenly moist," especially in any but the highest light. The soil needs to get ALMOST dry at least 1/2 way down the pot, before watering. Also, if leaves show brown spots on the tips and edges, the most likely cause is over-wet soil; likewise, yellow leaves indicate the soil is too dry. Finally, in order to water thoroughly but save the trouble of carrying the plant to a tub or sink every time you want to water, you should look into "double potting," in which you place your plant into a plastic drainage liner, then place both into a water tight decorative container. To help you learn more about this, and also about checking the soil before watering, you can go to
as well as the other videos in the ficus wrangler series. Also my blog http://theficuswrangler.blogspot.com/, where I'll be glad to answer any specific questions you have.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"I found these midcentury wicker chairs online and rooted them to the present with textiles," says Jackson. The designer also framed sea sponges and coral pieces in driftwood frames. Chairs: One Kings Lane
11. Use outdoor furniture indoors. Have some extra porch furniture lying around? Try pulling it indoors for a change and giving some of your heavier, upholstered pieces a rest until the first hint of fall is in the air. Not only do they look airier, they can put up with a lot more in terms of spills and stains.
When renovating for cottage style, think fresh, light and cheerful. You can't go wrong with classic white or cream paint, great wood floors and beadboard on ceilings or walls.
10. Reposition chairs and plants. If the fireplace has been the centerpiece of your living room throughout the colder months, simply rearranging the furniture could be all you need to shift the focus. Try angling a pair of chairs in front of the mantel, with a large potted tree tucked behind one chair.
