Jungalow Pop Up – The Making of…


Jungalow Pop Up – The Making of…

Typically, as a artistic, you sense issues. You possibly can see, really feel, hear issues that others might not. It’s a part of the magic and the wrestle of creativity to carry these issues into actuality in a approach 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 realize that Jungalow is a model born from a weblog. Whereas Jungalow has been a digital-first model from day one, I’ve at all times dreamt of bringing Jungalow into the true (offline) world.  I imagined an area the place we may join as a neighborhood 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 house. 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 sometimes rented it out for occasions. Sometimes, huh? My wheels began turning! That was the primary second I envisioned a Jungalow Pop Up in Los Angeles, on the “prime 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 small print in just a few weeks, and began development in Might!

We labored with Jeff, Sue, and the unimaginable crew at FTB Design on the construct out. FTB has a variety 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 house on Might 15 and full development by early June).

We additionally labored with my sister, Religion Blakeney, who’s an unimaginable inside designer with an consideration to element like no different! Collectively, we created temper boards, picked paint colours and flooring, thought by completely different architectural particulars we may add to the house to present it some dimension, and truthfully, FTB executed our imaginative and prescient superbly! 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 needed to attract people in as quickly as they opened the door to the pop up. It’s solely been just a few 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 speak about 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 may hook us up with some signage for the home windows. Love seeing the our emblem on this large scale peek by the home windows on the pop up.

One other favourite of mine: this unimaginable show and shelving unit that FTB created for us. You all helped to create it too! Bear in mind once we requested you which of them terracotta paint colour we should always go together with? Nicely Baked Clay gained by a landslide, however we determined to go together with Spicy Hue for the within of the shelving unit to create some depth and visible curiosity. What do you suppose?


The pop up house is harking back 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 house.

This Kohler Artifacts bathtub in Peachblow, is having her second!! I not too long ago visited the Kohler headquarters in Wisconsin and I used to be SO impressed seeing the gorgeous, timeless designs and colours of their newest collections. They not too long ago 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 beautiful pedestal sink and faucet are additionally from Kohler and work so nicely with the checkered ground and cosmic desert wallpaper. The brushed trendy brass end on the tap speaks so superbly to the gold accents within the wallpaper. 

Sure, lady!!! Exhibit these cute lil toes! 😉

I would simply transfer in!!!!!


I’ve been impressed by artwork deco particulars currently and discover myself referencing them in a variety of my latest designs. This “stepped” element within the bed room space is certainly one of my favourite design parts within the house. 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 vivid, cozy place to sit back and be impressed (and curious).

You understand how when you’ve got individuals over, they at all times find yourself within the kitchen? Nicely, that’s kinda true of our bar space. Everybody at all times 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 truthfully, it’s attractive AF!


We will’t wait to share this artistic house with you this summer season! Go to our web site or IG for upcoming pop up occasions and promos and hours of operation. We will’t wait to fulfill you IRL!
