It's a fiddle leaf fig and it thrives in bright, sunny places.

The gray walls in this Austin, Texas, home are a dramatic backdrop for a nice-size fiddleleaf ficus. The tall wicker basket visually balances the top-heavy tree, and it’s likely that the actual pot is propped up within the basket to give the illusion of a taller tree — a great trick to use anytime.If your style needs something a little less rustic, try using an enameled metal garbage can or a tall ceramic planter. You could fill the lower half of the pot with filler rocks or dirt before adding the plant or tree.

3. Plants. To me, a room doesn't feel finished without a living plant. There is something cheering and welcoming about a vibrant green-leafed plant that makes a space feel more like home. Read up on houseplants and choose plants that will do well in the light conditions of your room for the best results.Foolproof combo: Fiddle leaf fig tree + basket. A decorator favorite, the fiddle leaf fig has an elegant shape and big, luxurious leaves. The texture of a woven basket makes a great pairing with this tree — place a pot and saucer inside the basket, and boost it up on an empty pot if you want to fake a taller look.

Add Some GreeneryIn Chinese culture the gift of a plant — specifically entwined bamboo shoots or a money tree — is common when someone moves to a new house, opens a business or starts a new job. These plants signify growth, life and luck. Plants also provide oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide and add organic beauty to a room. Every client I have tells me they can’t grow plants; they forget about them, or their animals eat them. I have turned each and every one into successful plant owners (although a couple have air plants). Introducing or refreshing greenery is a wonderful way to add life to a space. Houzz has a fantastic ideabook on indoor plants.

East-facing windows. The light from east-facing windows is what most houseplants crave. It’s bright, but the only direct sunlight is during the morning, when it’s less intense. Most plants in these locations do well with regular water and normal home temperatures. Favorites for east-facing windows include Boston fern (Nephrolepis exaltata), butterfly palm (Dypsis lutescens), fiddleleaf fig (Ficus lyrata), heartleaf philodendron (Philodendron scandens), moth orchid (Phalaenopsis spp.), umbrella tree (Schefflera actinophylla and Schefflera arboricola) and youth on age (Tolmiea menziesii).Learn more about plants that grow well in east-facing windows

Note tall basket; make plant taller by elevating pot in basket.
