Jungalow Pop Up – The Making of…

Now and again, as an artistic, you sense issues. You’ll see, really feel, listen issues that others would possibly not. It’s a part of the magic and the battle of creativity to carry the ones issues into truth in some way that others can see, really feel, listen, odor, and style them too. For the ones of you who’ve been right here for some time, that Jungalow is a emblem born from a weblog. Whilst Jungalow has been a digital-first emblem from day one, I’ve at all times dreamt of bringing Jungalow into the true (offline) global.  I imagined an area the place shall we attach as a neighborhood and create in combination, encourage one every other, and hug every different (particularly after experiencing the isolation of the pandemic). For years, I’ve been looking for a bodily location for a Jungalow IRL area. Then, in overdue 2022, I talked to my brother, Shai, who’s a co-owner of Backside Bunk, positioned on Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. I requested him what Backside Bunk used to be doing on the second one flooring (their retailer is positioned at the first flooring) and he mentioned they now and again rented it out for occasions. Every so often, huh? My wheels began turning! That used to be the primary second I envisioned a Jungalow Pop Up in Los Angeles, at the “best bunk” (haha!) of my brother’s trade. We had our first assembly with the opposite co-owners of Backside Bunk in February, ironed out the main points in a couple of weeks, and began development in Would possibly!

We labored with Jeff, Sue, and the fantastic crew at FTB Design at the construct out. FTB has numerous enjoy in set design, so they’re used to tremendous fast TV manufacturing schedules and weren’t intimidated via what we concept used to be an bold timeline (get within the area on Would possibly 15 and entire development via early June).

We additionally labored with my sister, Religion Blakeney, who’s an improbable internal dressmaker with an consideration to element like no different! In combination, we created temper forums, picked paint colours and floor, concept thru other architectural main points shall we upload to the gap to offer it some size, and truthfully, FTB done our imaginative and prescient fantastically! And amusing reality, Religion additionally designed Backside Bunk!!! So it’s in reality a circle of relatives affair over right here!

Since we’re on the second one flooring, we knew we would have liked to attract other folks in once they opened the door to the pop up. It’s best been a couple of days since we introduced, 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 the entire #jungalowpopup love!!!).

Additionally are we able to discuss those stripes? And this trellis?! Kinda residing for this heavenly latticed mild second!!

We additionally requested our candy landlord, Serge of General Graphics if he may just hook us up with some signage for the home windows. Love seeing the our emblem on this large scale peek in the course of the home windows on the pop up.

Any other favourite of mine: this fantastic show and shelving unit that FTB created for us. You all helped to create it too! Consider once we requested you which of them terracotta paint colour we will have to pass with? Neatly Baked Clay gained via a landslide, however we determined to move with Highly spiced Hue for the interior of the shelving unit to create some intensity and visible pastime. What do you suppose?


The pop up area is paying homage to a loft condominium in Brooklyn that I lived in when I used to be in my 20s — with an excellent open flooring plan and no longer a ton of architectural element. So we concept it might be cool to design the toilet with an increased flooring, and antique checkered floor to set it excluding the remainder of the gap.

This Kohler Artifacts tub in Peachblow, is having her second!! I lately visited the Kohler headquarters in Wisconsin and I used to be SO impressed seeing the gorgeous, undying designs and colours of their newest collections. They not too long ago introduced again a few of their heritage colours (Spring Inexperienced & Peachblow) to have a good time their one hundred and fiftieth anniversary and I’m right here for the antique vibes!

This pretty pedestal sink and tap also are from Kohler and paintings so neatly with the checkered flooring and cosmic desolate tract wallpaper. The brushed fashionable brass end at the tap speaks so fantastically to the gold accents within the wallpaper. 

Sure, woman!!! Blow their own horns the ones lovely lil toes! 😉

I may simply transfer in!!!!!


I’ve been impressed via artwork deco main points in recent times and in finding myself referencing them in numerous my contemporary designs. This “stepped” element within the bed room space is one in every of my favourite design parts within the area. It creates a crown-like impact over the mattress. Who doesn’t wish to really feel like a queen in her bed room?

In our front room space, now we have books, pillows, candles, and so a lot more to find. It’s a vibrant, comfy position to cool and be impressed (and curious).

You know the way if you have folks over, they at all times finally end up within the kitchen? Neatly, that’s kinda true of our bar space. Everybody at all times finally ends up striking out round right here – most certainly as it’s were given 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 truthfully, it’s horny AF!


We will’t wait to percentage this ingenious area with you this summer time! Seek advice from our web site or IG for upcoming pop up occasions and promos and hours of operation. We will’t wait to fulfill you IRL!
