Temperatures are rising. Flowers are blooming. Spring allergies are in full swing and I don’t even mind because we can finally play outside. 

Of course, that doesn’t mean we don’t still need to work inside. And if you, too, are sick of that gallery wall that has been behind you on Zoom for more than a year (no shade to gallery walls!), we’re here for you: We designed three plant-filled Zoom backgrounds that bring the outdoors in and onto your screen (stuffy nose not included). 

Want to swap your surroundings for an #indoorjungle of a living room with thriving hanging greenery? Looking to immerse yourself in a virtual world of plants on plants on plants? Take a scroll below, and right click and download the image you love most.

Never tried the whole virtual Zoom background thing? Here’s how it works: Once you’ve saved your fave, make sure you have “virtual background” enabled by logging into Zoom in your Internet browser and checking under “Settings.” Now open the app version of Zoom on your desktop; navigate to the “Preferences” menu, click on “Background & Filters,” then add your new bg. And that’s it — happy Zooming!

Oh, and big bonus: We also created iPhone wallpaper-sized versions of the three flora-full designs in case you want to carry that fun spring feeling onto your mobile device. Check out @apartmenttherapy‘s Instagram Story Highlights for those!
