If the idea of a sun-filled living room, bursting with beautiful plants, bold patterns, vivid color, and global, worldly accents intrigues you, then you’ll love the Jungalow style! Popularized by celebrity designer Justina Blakeney, creative Jungalow style is quickly becoming popular with celebs and non-celebs alike. And the best part? You can do it on a budget!
The most important part is plants – lots and lots of plants! We especially love Ott’s in Schwenksville and Terrain in Glen Mills for specialty plants that you won’t find anywhere else, but if you’re on a budget, be sure to check out your local Home Depot for a wide selection of houseplants and indoor trees. While succulents are a top choice for sunny windowsills and desks, be sure to consider larger, leafy green plants and trees spread throughout the room for a bold jungle look.
Joyful, vivid colors are another “must have” for achieving this inspired bohemian style, so be sure to add an accent wall, patterned rug, or unique furniture. Handmade and vintage items can be purchased online (we love Etsy), and with a little patience and luck, we bet you’ll find some amazing pieces at your local thrift shop, too. The most important thing for achieving Jungalow style is to have fun – don’t be afraid to mix and match contrasting patterns, and be sure to incorporate your own personal style, filled with heirlooms and treasures from your travels!
