The “jungalow” style we’ve all come to know and love (made popular by Justina Blakeney) can be called many things… a trend, a throwback to the seventies, but I think it’s more involved. I call it a movement towards the Craft home. Hear me out.
It doesn’t take a genius to notice there’s a movement towards craftsmanship these days; craft beer; craft coffee; high quality goods made by artisans; small-batch production; all things that could be mass-produced but aren’t by principle alone. The jungalow home is that, in my opinion: a craft home.
There’s no way to mass care for plants, they are all fickle, they all have their own needs, their own temperament, and you can’t fake it, it takes time to learn how to care for them by trial and error. At least this has been my personal experience, and plants give your home a special one-of-a-kind, purposeful vibe.
(Getting off soapbox now).
Just as important as the actual plants themselves, are the planters that hold them! They can elevate your plants (literally), make a statement, fill a void and add personality, character and charm to your space.
I'm a big fan of clusters of wall planters that add texture and color to a space that may not get lots of sunlight and fill them with air plants and hanging moss.
