5 swoon worthy things: Justina Blakeney – The Bohemian

Justina Blakeney – The Bohemian

I first met the ever inspiring Justina Blakeney when we worked together on a CB2 project last year. I was immediately smitten by this vibrant, lovely lady whose passion for design, color, creativity and wild zest for life is palpable the second you meet her – her energy is magnetic! From her blog, The Jungalow, to her latest book, The New Bohemians, which just hit the shelves last week… Justina’s free bird bohemian aesthetic is represented in everything she so beautifully creates.

HOME BASE : Los Angeles

ENDLESSLY OBSESSED WITH Color, pattern, plants

YOUR DECOR STYLE : Wild, patternful, global

DESIGN TREND YOU LOVE?  all things indigo

ONE YOU WISH WOULD GO AWAY?  Stark, all black and white interiors

WHEN NO ONE IS HOME BUT ME I light a candle and take a bath

YOU WILL NEVER SEE meat IN MY HOME

I SAVE ON furniture for my rapidly growing toddler

I SPLURGE ON kitchen accessories like a Vitamix. I also splurge on textiles and odd objet d’art.
