Jungalow: Decorate Wild (Abrams)
“Jungalow” is the term coined by New York Times bestselling author Justina Blakeney, for the wildly popular brand that embodies her design style: bold colors, patterns, prints, and plants, with an unbridled love of self-expression. It is fitting that her biggest, boldest, and most beautiful volume yet shares its namesake.
Jungalow: Decorate Wild is the ultimate guide to designing wildly creative interiors that are free-spirited, layered, and deeply personal. In each chapter, Justina demonstrates how elements from every person’s life can be the foundation of their unique style and reveals her distinctive point of view on everything design fans want to know—how to make bold choices with color and pattern, how to take cues from nature, how to authentically glean inspiration from their heritage and travels, and how to break rules. She also shares personal narratives, practical advice, and nuanced insight into how she lives in her own space—how she reconnects with nature, how she plays and stays inspired, how she gives herself permission to feel free and wild.
Throughout the pages of Jungalow, lush photography by Dabito lives alongside design ideas and inspiration that invite readers to break the rules, express their creative selves, and get a little bit wild.

“Your home should make you feel happy the moment you walk through the door—and no one understands that better than Justina.
