There are so many different design styles to take inspiration from – and one such type is Jungalow, which has been trending since Justina Blakeney, a blogger and interior designer, popularized it with the launch of her blog. Today, we will discuss the Jungalow style and how to embrace this bohemian-tropical fusion in home decor.
What Is Jungalow Style?
The term “jungalow” is a portmanteau of “jungle” and “bungalow” and celebrates a wild and free spirit. Jungalow interiors are often filled with plants, flowers, and other natural elements, creating a sense of peace and serenity. The style also embraces bold colors, eclectic patterns, tropical prints, Aztec motifs, vintage designs, and global features. Patterns are often layered to create a distinctive and eye-catching look. International elements can be souvenirs from travels around the world that represent different periods and cultures.
