Welcome to our gallery featuring a variety of beautiful living rooms with house plants!


It is always good it include some kind of plant life into your home.

Real plants are wonderful because the help to clean the air and push more oxygen out into the room.

But if you can’t keep a plant alive to save your life, it’s okay. That’s what they make fake plants for: all the beauty without any of the risk.

Sometimes plants are used as the sole addition of color to the room. Other times they accent other colors or are just used to fill up some necessary space.

With so many different options when it comes to plant life, real and fake, you can certainly find something that will work in your home.

Dominate a tall space with a tree to balance out the height of the room and make it feel less cavernous; or create a small succulent arrangement for a side table and keep it low key.

In the room pictured above, the small trees are used not only to highlight the green accents of the room but they also balance the low profile of the furniture against the high ceiling.

Whatever your thoughts for your space may be, adding a plant is sure to accentuate the space considerably.

We hope that you enjoy the rest of our gallery!
