Who needs accessories when you can decorate your living room shelves with plants? Blogger Brittany Robertson made her place with eight green friends, ranging from a small succulent to a large snake plant. Using a variety of planter styles makes the setup look nice and artistic.

Neat and Neutral
Want to create a more uniform setup? Grab your collection of plants, pick up a variety of pots in neutral colors, and start arranging! Blogger Lee Funke suggests which plants will thrive in built-in shelving and which require a little more attention - aka light - throughout the week. (You can always move the plants off the shelves and close to a window if necessary.)

If you are struggling to find the right piece of art to hang on top of your bed, install a plant shelf instead. Blogger Kessler Ramirez's setup shows how easy it is to create an "urban jungle" at home using wall shelves from IKEA.

Working long hours at home is not so bad if it was your office setup. Blogger Dabito created a DIY mid-century modern inspired desk, which he styled with all kinds of treasures. He chose the children of the plant as a complement to the big green friends placed on the floor and made the space nice and cohesive.

Woven trays, donut vases, and other trending elements add a boho touch to Instagrammer Ana Isaza's plant wall. Subtle touches, such as black and white plant-themed artwork and a mini-bust that doubles as a vase, continue the theme, adding the dominant style.

Cheers to That
Plants - whether real or fake - also look cute in the shelving of bar carts. Start small with successors like Blogger Shannon or display oversized pits on the top shelf of your cart. A little green will go a long way.

A Colorful Corner
An empty corner in need of a little love is perfectly suited to a plant shelf: it adds some welcome color and life to your space in the process. Brendt Blanks did exactly that in his daughter's bedroom — children of all ages would enjoy being cared for in their mini-gardens.

Pretty in Pink and Green
Pink and green always make a lovely combination, and Instagrammer Kate made her salmon-colored wall pop with some really attractive plants. There is no need to be large or outnumbered to make a statement to green friends.

A Little Ladder
Caitlin and Manda McGrath
Not looking to hang shelves on the wall? Bloggers Caitlin and Menda McGrath created a Sweet Ladder plant stand that is just as cute as any high-up display. However, such a piece is preferable for households without pets or young children, as the plants are extra accessible and can be easily knocked down.

Plants and books are equivalent to a householder's dream come true. Cecilia Zheng successfully styled her two loves and even left room for a dear friend to have fun.

For very small spaces, build like blogger Cat Messiah and turn even the smallest shelf into a small plant temple. The shelf she designed was an IKEA hack and looks beautiful in itself but can also shine as part of a gallery wall.

Simple and Spotted
Blogger Rachel Schlather keeps things simple in her Scandinavian-inspired bedroom but understands the power of plants when it comes to heating the space. We also love her use of geometric planters.

A Custom Creation
Building plant shelves from scratch? Take inspiration from blogger Nicole Schmitz, who created specially spaced cans exclusive to her planters. This setup allows utensils to be good and safe during the day, but they are easy to remove when it is time to water them.

If you're not sure how to style your entry table, you can always use it as a temporary plant stand, like blogger Olivia Watson. She grouped with an assortment of houseplants to create a welcoming indoor garden. Just keep a watering can nearby, and you're golden.

More is More
Dorrington Reid was not shy in displaying all his green friends on top of his couch. Their setup proves that all different types of plants can look cute when grouped together — there is certainly no need to create a matchy-matchy setup. Houseplants benefiting from the moist environment would like this arrangement.

An Unexpected Touch
Who says you can't show plants in the bathroom? Add a spa-like atmosphere to your loo with a blogger Kate-like shelf. If you need space to be functional, you can always opt for fewer plants and mix them in some jars or baskets to keep beauty supplies.

Wicker furniture is a great way to add soil to any place. Make things like Missy Peterson and take things a step further by styling a piece of rattan shiny with plants. Minor trends come and go, but the plants make for a timeless accent.

Books and plants also add a soothing touch above the bed, so don't hesitate to show your green friends upstairs, as did Noor Hasan in his place. If you want to add more drama, a hanging pit above the headboard also looks lovely.

Doing Just Vine
There is no need for a gallery wall when you can have a plant wall. Kelly Phan made a statement with vines in her dining area, which extend across the wall and complement the plants in her other rooms on shelves set against a macro wall hanging. Talk about getting the outdoors inside!

Plant Parent Pride
Cisco de Luca
Cisco de Luca transformed a simple corner into a small plant temple using simple wooden shelving, which he hung in an L-shape. We also cannot get enough of the mug of the parents of his entire plant.

A Mobile Display
If you are not using your bar cart at all, go ahead and turn it into a plant cart like Blogger Linda. She jazzed up a brass beauty with gorgeous planters that complemented the luxe-looking piece. The finished display will add a sophisticated look to any room in the house. And the best part is that it is easy for you (and your plants) to carry the decorated car from one place to another.
