With its design philosophy ‘Decorate Wild!’, it’s only natural that you can associate Justina Blakeney’s  lifestyle brand The Jungalow with an abundance of houseplants. The feed features modern Bohemian interiors adorned with characterful contemporary pieces, many of which are created by Blakeney herself and can be bought online.

‘Green interiors’ is this Instagram account’s only descriptor, but judging from its array of beautiful  houseplant-rich spaces, it’s the only one that’s needed. Describing himself as a plant hoarder, its curator Hilton Carter – a film-maker, producer and plant stylist – is clearly an expert on the subject and includes photographs of both his own home and green interiors that he finds inspiring.
