Yep, the "jungalow." That's how blogger, designer, consultant, author, and jill-of-all-trades Justina Blakeney describes the colorful, maximalist half-jungle, half-bungalow that she shares with her daughter on the edge of L.A.'s Echo Park. And, how does one create a jungle north of Westlake? Well, the decor specialist and lifestyle blogger has tricked out her cozy cottage with a riot of color, tons of patterns, and plants on plants on plants. It's a kind of organic, boho amazing that you just have to see to understand.
So, we took up a little tour of the jungle that Blakeney's filled with vintage pieces, Target finds, and miles of textiles to talk design, fashion, and career callings. It was a "jungaclious" afternoon that we won't soon forget.
