My jungle buddy Igor and I decided to start this new Urban Jungle Bloggers year with a lot of fresh #urbanjungle inspiration from around the web. So today we share the best pinners, instagrammers, and bloggers that will quench our everlasting thirst for green inspiration! I hope you'll share your favorites in the comments 🙂

my Pinterest faves:

Queen of the Junglalow Justina Blakeney's Jungalow board
Floral board by Tahiana Andriamanjay from Le Blog d'Olive
And secretly I'm a little bit in love with our Urban Jungle Bloggers Pinterest board

my favorite green IGers:
Tawwni pure succulent love!
And Needles and Leaves for more succulent love

Succulove what's in a name?

my favorite green bloggers:
Growing with Plants by Matt Mattus, lots of hands-on tips from a horticulturist
Needles and Leaves by Tawni, beautiful
Coffeeklatch by talented duo Magali and Bart, they don't particularly blog about greens, but the interiors they shoot reveal lots of green beauty

  1. ah wat een heerlijke inspiratie! alle plantjes die ik heb gekocht twee weken geleden doen het nog en wachten keurig af tot ik mijn kamer kan en ze hun definitieve plek krijgen! Was pinterest al aan het afstruinen naar inspiratie voor groen in mijn badkamer, ben alleen bang dat de vochtigheid te hoog is voor ze, heb namelijk niet echt optimale ventilatie.. haha!

    1. Wat een enthousiasme, Marloes! Gezellig :) Misschien is een varen iets voor in je badkamer? Die kunnen tegen vocht, althans een aantal soorten, hebben niet veel licht nodig en hebben een mooie frisse kleur. Veel succes en dankjewel dat je ook je inspiratie deelde vandaag!

  2. Much as I've been wanting to have more plants at home, I have a severe black thumb—I actually managed to kill a succulent last December. This might be the inspiration I need for a new beginning!

    1. Hahaha killing a succulent happened to me too, sometimes they just don't like water or are simply suicidal. But with trial & error I'm still learning. Hope our blog posts will inspire you to grow something this year, Deepa. Even the tiniest baby succulent or a tomato plant on the balcony?

    1. Oeh spannend! Zo tegen de lente komt het allemaal gelukkig weer wat meer tot leven. En tot die tijd zijn er genoeg blogs te lezen ;) Veel plezier!

  3. Wat leuk dat jullie dit doen. Super om al dat groen zo te zien. Niet om reclame te maken, maar ik heb laatst een plantenhanger gemaakt en de diy op mijn blog geplaatst. Misschien vinden jullie dat leuk. En anders verwijder je dit bericht maar hoor :)

    1. Thanks Yvonne! Oh yes, please try if you can get it (there are even some Dutch folks involved in publishing The Plant journal, so I think it should be easy). And enjoy, it's sooo good!

  4. So many new inspiration, Judith. Great! It's so hard to narrow down the favorites. Green ideas are allover the social media!Hey, how about a small link up link where people can enter their name and link to the post. It's somehow difficult to find other peoples post.

    1. Totally agree Ana! It's was harder than expected to find green blog posts. I remembered a few that I enjoyed, but others seem to get lost or are too hard to find. Thanks for the suggestion! Igor and I will definitely think about it as we expand our UJB project this year ;)

    1. Hahah you're in for a treat! There's so much inspiration (also don't forget to check the other blogger's links! woah!)! Have great rainy (?) weekend, Petra!

  5. Bedankt voor deze inspirerende post! Ik maak regelmatig 'groene' foto's. Ze staan op mijn Instagram account
    ( @hipaholic ) en ik heb ze getagd met #urbanjungle. Have a look! Mocht ik iets voor je kunnen betekenen dan hoor ik het graag :)

  6. Can't believe how nice to have so many new things to discover, I do not know any of these you suggest. Can't wait to have time and visit them all with a nice cup of tea. Thanks for sharing :-)

  7. Oh, hello, thank you for including me. What a nice surprise! I love this series and the way you have done ti this time. I am off now to discover (pin) the many other sources you are recommending! xx
