Staff Reviews


Justina Blakeney’s colorful, comfortable, and free-spirited design style made her first book, The New Bohemians, a bestseller. Now Blakeney returns with a handbook that shows readers how to create that style for themselves. The best part about her design philosophy is that the most important elements have nothing to do with money; rather, Blakeney stresses clarity, color, plants, and natural materials to create a welcoming home that speaks to you and makes you (and your guests) happy the moment they walk in the door. I can’t get enough of her love of pattern, texture, tiles, and textiles—not to mention her joyous nature. “Home décor should be fun. If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.”

— S.B.

Praise For…


"Justina's style is so warm and colorful. She makes much more than moments. She makes life feel bright and hopeful. All her plants and pallets and prints are put together in ways that are beyond stylish. It is art.  It makes you want to live in her worlds."


“An indispensable manual to living in a home that's pretty, restful, groovy and 100% you. This is my spirit book! Finally a book that offers specific, helpful ways to make a home feel original, beautiful and, most importantly, like a haven for its homeowner. Plus: crystals!!"

"With Ms. Blakeney as guide, princes, plumbers and poets alike can readily replicate the charm and ease of these featured interiors—from tiny urban studios to suburban domiciles to rustic retreats." 


"It’s as vibrant, rule-breaking and out the box as she showed in her first book, “The New Bohemians,” which explored bohemian style across the globe and became a New York Times best-seller. Now, Blakeney has written “The New Bohemians Handbook: Come Home to Good Vibes” (Abrams, $27.50). Blakeney offers tips on how to make bohemian style your own, from rearranging what you have to painting. It’s part book, part yoga lesson as Blakeney walks readers through finding clarity, flow, growth and harmony in our homes. In the end, it’s about creating a space that reflects you, she writes. "


"If plant packed boho spaces are your thing, then you probably already follow in the footsteps of Justina Blakeney, The Jungalow founder whose first book, The New Bohemians, is a staple on design lovers' coffee tables everywhere. Now, her latest tome, published this week, teaches you how to not just decorate your home, but how to make it feel good."


"Justina Blakeney’s bohemian-inspired style is evident page after page. Bursts of color and jungle influences are splashed across the pages, as she encourages readers to think about rooms in a different way and bring positive energy to their homes. Blakeney shares her tips on rearranging, painting and planting with the goal of finding a “spirit environment.”
