For ages, the corner of our living room to the left of the fireplace has felt off. I wasn't sure how to fix it without totally new furniture (aiiiin't gonna happen), so I was at a bit of a loss. Eventually, I realized that what the space really needed was some greenery. Tall greenery. But that corner receives so little light that I was worried anything we put there would die. Somewhere in the recesses of my I-used-to-work-at-flower-shop brain, I remembered the good ol' snake plant.
Named for obvious reasons, this thing is hardy (as confirmed by this Apartment Therapy article) and apparently can handle low light and neglect (my specialty!). Plus, it was only $12.99 at Superstore! And when I was choosing which plant I wanted, an adorable elderly woman informed me of its other moniker: Mother-In-Law's Tongue. Which is both ridiculous and hilarious, so of course, I had to have it.
I'm still searching for the right pot and contemplating a DIY. If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have already clued into that fact, haha. This corner still needs a bunch of work but it's finally heading in the right direction!
P.S. I'm making a conscious effort to get used to using manual mode on the camera, so bear with me (and the occasional blurriness #ineedatripod) while I figure things out!
