Generally, as a inventive, you sense issues. You possibly can see, really feel, hear issues that others could not. It’s a part of the magic and the wrestle of creativity to deliver these issues into actuality in a manner that others can see, really feel, hear, scent, and style them too. For these of you who’ve been right here for some time, you already know that Jungalow is a model born from a weblog. Whereas Jungalow has been a digital-first model from day one, I’ve all the time dreamt of bringing Jungalow into the actual (offline) world. I imagined an area the place we might join as a group and create collectively, encourage each other, and hug one another (particularly after experiencing the isolation of the pandemic). For years, I’ve been looking out for a bodily location for a Jungalow IRL area. Then, in late 2022, I talked to my brother, Shai, who’s a co-owner of Backside Bunk, situated on Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. I requested him what Backside Bunk was doing on the second ground (their retailer is situated on the primary ground) and he mentioned they often rented it out for occasions. Often, huh? My wheels began turning! That was the primary second I envisioned a Jungalow Pop Up in Los Angeles, on the “high bunk” (haha!) of my brother’s enterprise. We had our first assembly with the opposite co-owners of Backside Bunk in February, ironed out the main points in a number of weeks, and began development in Could!
We labored with Jeff, Sue, and the unbelievable staff at FTB Design on the construct out. FTB has lots of expertise in set design, so they’re used to tremendous fast TV manufacturing schedules and weren’t intimidated by what we thought was an bold timeline (get within the area on Could 15 and full development by early June).
We additionally labored with my sister, Religion Blakeney, who’s an unbelievable inside designer with an consideration to element like no different! Collectively, we created temper boards, picked paint colours and flooring, thought via completely different architectural particulars we might add to the area to provide it some dimension, and actually, FTB executed our imaginative and prescient fantastically! And enjoyable truth, Religion additionally designed Backside Bunk!!! So it’s actually a household affair over right here!
Since we’re on the second ground, we knew we wished to attract of us in as quickly as they opened the door to the pop up. It’s solely been a number of days since we launched, however this stair case that includes our Tigris print (in a bigger scale) appears to be a crowd favourite on social (thanks to everybody for all of the #jungalowpopup love!!!).
Can also we discuss these stripes? And this trellis?! Kinda residing for this heavenly latticed gentle second!!
We additionally requested our candy landlord, Serge of Whole Graphics if he might hook us up with some signage for the home windows. Love seeing the our brand on this large scale peek via the home windows on the pop up.
One other favourite of mine: this unbelievable show and shelving unit that FTB created for us. You all helped to create it too! Keep in mind after we requested you which of them terracotta paint shade we should always go along with? Properly Baked Clay received by a landslide, however we determined to go along with Spicy Hue for the within of the shelving unit to create some depth and visible curiosity. What do you suppose?
The pop up area is paying homage to a loft condominium in Brooklyn that I lived in once I was in my 20s — with a brilliant open ground plan and never a ton of architectural element. So we thought it might be cool to design the lavatory with an elevated ground, and classic checkered flooring to set it aside from the remainder of the area.
This Kohler Artifacts bathtub in Peachblow, is having her second!! I just lately visited the Kohler headquarters in Wisconsin and I used to be SO impressed seeing the attractive, timeless designs and colours of their newest collections. They just lately introduced again a few of their heritage colours (Spring Inexperienced & Peachblow) to rejoice their one hundred and fiftieth anniversary and I’m right here for the classic vibes!
This attractive pedestal sink and faucet are additionally from Kohler and work so properly with the checkered ground and cosmic desert wallpaper. The brushed trendy brass end on the tap speaks so fantastically to the gold accents within the wallpaper.

I’ve been impressed by artwork deco particulars currently and discover myself referencing them in lots of my current designs. This “stepped” element within the bed room space is certainly one of my favourite design components within the area. It creates a crown-like impact over the mattress. Who doesn’t need to really feel like a queen in her bed room?
In our lounge space, we now have books, pillows, candles, and a lot extra to find. It’s a brilliant, cozy place to relax and be impressed (and curious).
You know the way when you’ve folks over, they all the time find yourself within the kitchen? Properly, that’s kinda true of our bar space. Everybody all the time finally ends up hanging out round right here – most likely as a result of it’s bought the vibes!!! We used our Phoenix Naturale wallpaper on this space and FTB constructed this bar from scratch!! We painted in Kale Inexperienced and Bay Leaf and actually, it’s attractive AF!
