OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU
TAP INTO YOUR OWN CREATIVITY
AND TO HELP
BRING GOOD VIBES HOME.
Jungalow® started as a design blog in Justina Blakeney's tiny, plant-filled living room back in 2009 and has since grown into a lifestyle brand and the go-to source for jungalicious design goods and inspiration. Our shop features signature Justina Blakeney Home® and Jungalow® collections designed in our Los Angeles studio as well as a curated ensemble of creative, colorful, modern goods from around the globe. We are also proud to offer an exclusive, rotating selection of high quality, limited edition art prints from an international group of female artists.
Our hope is that Jungalow is a place that will inspire you to tap into your own creativity, connect with nature at home and help you to bring good vibes home. We hope that the pieces that you discover here will give you that little spark you need to make your home a little bit more colorful, patternful and jungalicious – but most importantly... a little bit more you. Thank you for stopping by, and welcome to our wild world.
As part of our mission to help foster the human/nature connection, each time you purchase anything from our shop, at least two trees are planted with every single order. (Read more about that program here.)
We work with vendors from all over the world to source, design and create product, and every day we make changes to work towards more responsible and more sustainable business practices.
We try and incorporate natural, recycled, recycle-able and compostable materials where we can. (If you get a pre-loved box when you order something from us don't be alarmed!) We work with vendors to optimize our packaging and reduce our use of single-use plastics and styrofoam. We also give back to non-profit organizations we believe in (In the last year, we have donated to the ACLU, Girls Who Code, The Rainforest Alliance, The National Organization for Women, The Downtown Women's Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center, among others.)
We are far from perfect, and have a long way to go to meet all of our goals, but we promise you that we do care, we do listen, we ask lots of questions and we always strive for growth.
Hi! I'm Justina. I'm a designer, author, mama and founder and creative director of Jungalow®.
My Philosophy: I believe that good design increases the quality of life and that creativity is the key to having an amazing home. I believe that living energies in the home: the people, the pets, and the plants are what make a house a home. I believe that color has the power to bring joy, that pattern is the spice of design, and that plants are magic. I believe that we are all deeply creative. I believe that creativity, confidence and joy are contagious.
My Passion and my Process: My passion is art and design, and my calling is to help others tap into their own creativity. My design process is very organic. Many of the designs here in our shop began as a watercolor that I did on a train or a plane, or a doodle in my sketchbook that I keep on my bedside table. It's an honor and a joy to work with our amazing team to bring these designs to life and then to see how you decorate with them in your homes.
MEET THE TEAM
ABOUT OUR TEAM
We are a tiny but mighty team of ladies located in Los Angeles.
Sara is our Creative Counsel. She oversees partnerships and social media at Jungalow. She keeps us sane and grounded as our resident "group therapist." She's also a bad-ass lawyer, a deeply talented stylist, and in case all that weren't enough, she also doesn't mind capturing any bugs that find their way into our studio and releasing them back into the wild, so yeah. Sara is very special.
Kristina is our Buyer and E-commerce Manager. She's got an incredible eye, the best sense of humor and she's the captain of the shop! She uncovers the coolest treasures and keeps the shop running like a well oiled machine. She's who we look to on the team for fashion advice (hello resident fashion & beauty influencer) and to keep us up-to-date with all things pop culture. I call her Kiki but that doesn't mean you can call her that.
Kelly is our Marketing Manager and Graphic Designer who works out of our East Coast office (also known as her living room in Orlando, Florida). If you get our BREATHTAKINGLY beautiful newsletters, The Junga-Lowdown, then you've experienced Kelly's magic and I don't need to say much more. (and if you don't, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!) I will, however say that Kelly really, really loves holidays, especially Christmas, so if you see holiday magic happening here at Jungalow, that's probably Kelly and her Christmas Elves at it again.
Piper is our Operations Associate and Design Assistant. Piper has many hidden talents, and once you get to know her you'll discover that not only does she pack up many of the pretty packages you receive when you place an order with us, and assist me on the product design side of the biz, but she's secretly a photographer, stylist, graphic designer, wallpaper installer and a really great work-out buddy.
If you hit us up, you can expect to hear from Kristina, Kelly or Piper.
We are happy you're here!
