Design Inspired by Figs
For some reason, I have a strange obsession with figs. And honestly, I don't even really like them that much. (don't even get me started on fig newtons.) At my in-law's house in Italy, they grow everywhere. You can just pluck them right off the trees and eat them. What I love about figs is their color. On the outside, they aren't too exciting, but when you open them up, they have such a beautiful vibrant color. I had them at my wedding scattered on the tables and I just bought a fig tree that I'm going to try and grow in a pot. Even if I'm not successful at actually growing a fig, I still love the shape of their leaves. Cross your fingers I can keep it alive!
These images of figs used as decor is really making me hope my little fig tree makes it!
I just had to share this image of figs used in a floral arrangement. So pretty...
I was checking out Etsy's website and found some really neat things. Like this piece of art would look awesome hanging on a wall:
This pendant is so cool. It's actually molded from a real fig:
I also couldn't help myself from designing an outfit around the beautiful colors of figs:
