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.
So, for those of you who have embraced the jungalow style (or are looking to add some green to your home) I’ve put together my list of 9 statement planters that I’m coveting (click the numbers below for sources):
I used to be a huge fan of gallery walls. Emphasis on used to be. (Past tense.)
That is until I came to the realization that I just can't pull them off properly.
Gallery walls have to be precisely executed to look polished. Otherwise your wall can end up looking like a hot mess! Trust me, I know from personal experience. I just took down my own gallery wall because I gave up on trying to make it something it will never be. Crème brûlée can never be Jell-O (and vice versa).
Your home is a reflection of you... no two are ever exactly alike and nothing gives your space a more authentic vibe than a truly one-of-a-kind vintage rug.
There is something about the hand-woven quality along with its pre-loved imperfections that makes me swoon! And these works of art can go in any room of the house (entryway, kitchen, bathroom, etc.)
As you may have guessed from the title, Beachy Bohème is now carrying vintage rugs! (Yes, this is your cue to happy dance).
