Sure, this dining room may have more plants than seating, which may lead some to believe the area is way too busy.

Okay, serious question: how many plants in a bedroom are too many? Do you draw the line at five? 10? Enough to fill an entire indoor greenhouse?

Overcrowding any space of your home with decor may well be a home design faux-pas, but we think we can let that rule slide for this bedroom with lively greenery bursting at the seams.

Carry Plants Throughout Your Entire Space

So far we've seen indoor plants contained to one specific space in a home, like the living room, bedroom, and dining area. But you don't have to limit the amount of greenery in your dwelling to one room. 

Rather, you can create cohesiveness in your entire home by displaying foliage throughout different parts of your space. Just note how well the design works for this pair of open-concept living rooms.

 There's So Much Greenery That You Have No Choice But To Take a Shelfie

Just because your collection of flora is confined to a shelf doesn't mean you fall outside the parameters of indoor urban jungles. 

Rather, house plants can be arranged in whichever way feels right to your home. Let your greenery hangs loose for all to see or keep them primp, proper, and totally instaworthy — you make the call!
