If I had my druthers, I’d be filling every square inch of my home with leafy green plant life. Fiddle leaf fig plants, whatever the new fiddle leaf fig is, weird plants—this proud plant parent wants them all. The folks in the homes of this post have very nearly accomplished this feat. From sunrooms to bedrooms to kitchens and beyond, these are some of the most plant-filled indoor jungles we’ve seen.

This 1920s converted factory loft is a beautiful, sunlit, plant-filled home in the heart of Auckland.

The title of this house tour says it all: This Modern Boston Carriage House Has the Dreamiest Sunroom Ever. Stunning tile floors, big floor-to-ceiling windows, and a mix of modern and vintage furniture blend with an array of gorgeous house plants to create a one-of-a-kind space.

Bj Stadelman is the owner of Hægur, a Charleston plant shop. It should come to no surprise that his home in downtown Charleston is bursting with beautiful green life!

The Oakland home is a vibrant maximalist lounge space, but don’t get distracted by all the great vintage finds and miss out on all of the plants! Kristin Peters and Corey McLaughlin have layered in lots of plant life into their vibrant home.

There are plenty of design elements to drool over in this Spanish home, from the architectural details to the patterned tile floors. The plants that are sprinkled around the home are the perfect complement to the decor, and made all the more beautiful by the homeowner’s homemade macrame plant holders.

One bearded dragon, two geckos, two snakes, two cats, two hermit crabs, two fish, and two humans call this renovated Denver house home. But along with furry (and scaly) friends, it also houses 70+ plants.

Rachana (@plantistan on Instagram) calls herself a “Brooklyn-based plant junkie,” and her large loft-like space in Brooklyn sports over 300 plants in under 1000 square feet. 

The 400-square-foot apartment that artist Alina and her husband Artem share with their cat Usha features tons of very green plant life, Alina’s art, and art supplies.

This couple’s Long Island home is an absolute oasis of one-of-a-kind vintage finds, neat art, cozy textiles, and lots of plants.

Cute, perky plants are placed around this couple’s Chicago’s apartment, and the kitchen is a beautiful jungle of leaves sprinkled around the room, including a clever DIY project to disguise the kitchen ceiling light.

With a nickname like “Gay Gardens,” this West Seattle rental home is bound to be a verdant green space.

This Chicago home could be described as minimal modern, with just a few sleek furnishings creating an uncluttered space. The couple who decorated the space uses green plants as bold decor elements.

No round up of plant-filled home paradises could be complete without mentioning Summer Rayne Oakes‘ stunning indoor jungle home in Brooklyn.
