Jungalow (Jungle + Bungalow) style is one of my favorite sources of interior design inspiration. It makes me feel like I’m living in a greenhouse or in a tropical tree house. I love the bohemian and chill vibes of artist bungalows and I love how greenery in the home immediately injects a calm and zen tone to a room. How perfect to combine them both!
The base of this look is to start with crisp white walls, neutral black, white and wooden furniture and tons (more is more) of plants. Particularly ones with large leaves and a tropical vibe such as Palms, Elephant Ears, Fiddle Leaf Figs trees, Philodendrons, Ferns, hanging Ivy, and cacti varieties. Think about adding an accent wall with a big bold graphic pattern, but keep the theme simple and green or blue. Once you have the base, bring in sheep skin rugs, and colorful native american, Moroccan, and Turkish textiles (i.e. rugs, pillows, throws, tapestries). The key here is the art of draping and layering. All of these rooms look effortless and have a lair like quality to them. They look lived in and cozy. The last step is to bring in candles (all about the warm lighting), black and white photography prints, and cool toned or white ceramics and glassware.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this style and how you’d incorporate it into your style.
