You Killed Our Love Fern

Chase Booth's Bathroom via Domino Book of Decorating
I remembered reading in Domino the following useful bit of information about ferns:
And I thought to myself hmmm...I'm not much of a gardener.
Then one day I was out at the grocery store and spotted the Charlie-Brown-Christmas-Tree version of all ferns and felt the need to save it and show it some loving! And I had a new bathroom with a big window, it was like it was meant to be.
Here is the (giant) tub and window in my rental...The finishes are generic, but it's super nice for a rental and only a few years old, so I'm not going to complain. Ever.
You can see my mini fern sitting there in the corner. Sometimes I stick him in the window like this:
Here's hoping I don't kill him.
Also..he needs a new pot. I'm sensing a DIY project in my near future. Maybe a DIY leopard print pot?

Window treatments probably aren't in the budget for my mini bathroom project, but I'm thinking I'd like to hang some art on the walls on either side of the window. Maybe some botanical prints to keep the fern company? Any thoughts?

Lastly, sorry about the later than usual post today guys, I'm on the part time job hunt so I can afford design school and this lil apartment and let's just say so far...it's been discouraging at best.

I do not have a green thumb, so if that fern was in my care, it would be toast! I would love to see a DIY leopard print pot! As far as for artwork, I think some thing bright and colorful to add some life to the space. I know a bathroom is supposed to be relaxing, but sometimes a pop of color helps to break things up.

Tiffany, good luck with the job hunt! Any employer would be a FOOL to pass you up... for whatever job they are hiring for! Your blog post title cracked me up and I'm feeling the leopard pot idea!

Cute - I would certainly not complain with that bathroom either! The bathtub looks rather large to me... lucky you! And botanical art sounds great - or anything really!

Haha! I love the title {and the movie of course!} I think the fern will grow to be quite a lovely plant - he just needs some love!

Have to admit, I always have lots of trouble keeping any indoor plan alive so I wish you luck! Great bathroom for a rental, lucky you. Oh, and I think the botanicals sounds like a fab idea, go for it! xx

Aww your love fern is too cute! I love having greenery in the house/apt, it definitely livens up the place.
