Lifestyle brand and design aficionados Jungalow bring good vibes home with their mission to enrich the human/nature connection. Founder Justina Blakeney believes it is creativity that makes for an incredible home, and that good design can greatly improve ones quality of life.
Blakeney’s eye for pattern and design has helped grow her lifestyle blog to a brand rich with passion – the place to go for worldly goods from pillows to rugs and storage to sconces. Jungalow’s tagline ‘decorate wild’ demonstrates the company’s desire to empower people to fill their homes with the playful and unique, but mostly with the natural.
Luckily for the Tile Addicts, Blakeney is also tile-obesessive, having used tile in almost every renovation project she has completed. And last year, in a collaboration with Granada Tile, Justina designed Egret, a hexagonal cement tile. Demonstrating her love for unique finds and natural motifs, Egret was developed after inspiration from a vintage dish that featured its own egret imagery.
Needing to simplify the design for tile production, Blakeney landed on a corner rendering of the bird to give the illusion of it being in flight. The colours chosen were Midnight, Latte, and Black (although Granada Tile offers the option of customisation), and are perfectly matched with Granda Tiles existing hexagonal Midnight tiles.
The final design is gorgeous, and highly effective in its simplicity. When combined with Justina’s further styling, and the tiles use in her Casita, the warmth they offer is undeniable. The fantastic space is made even more so with the bold blue and flying egrets, a familiar sight at their riverside home.
