Kitchen Dining Area With Lots of Plants and Wood Table

Plants, plants and more plants! This kitchen comes alive with greenery scattered throughout the space, becoming the room's primary art. A country-inspired kitchen table seats six people, and large windows surrounding the room bring even more of the outdoors in. Three chandeliers bring a touch of elegance to the space.

I've been obsessed with succulents for a while now, but guys? I've gone full #plantlady. I'm dreaming big dreams of a whole room devoted to plant life, I can't get enough of botanical prints and even my wardrobe is starting to look a little...greener. Does this sound familiar? Here are 23 signs you might be just as plant-obsessed.

Your dream living room looks like this:

Artwork? Nah. You've got vines.

You laughed at this card.

This is in your cart RN.

You spend quality time with your true loves.

Succulents > chocolate.

This is what Saturday morning looks like:

You're buying ALL OF THESE THINGS.

Justina Blakeney is your ultimate design icon.

But you love a good DIY pot, too.

Too many palm leaves? Impossible.

Your plants are your children...

...and they all have names.

It's a loving home, okay?

Succulent babies? Too cute not to grow.

Plus, you can gift them for literally everything.

You're a ringer for this trophy:

This is your go-to "Sorry, I can't."

Plant lady is the new cat lady, and you're okay with that.

After all...
