In January of 2019, we started a series of interviews inspired by Michelle Obama’s book Becoming. We asked inspiring women about their journey of “becoming,” including their creative trajectory. You can read more interviews here. Keep following along for more inspiration!
Since we began interviewing artists and creatives, we’ve been so inspired! I wanted to revisit of our first interviews, which was with the lovely Justina Blakeney, and show some of her newer projects including her new Jungalow collection with Target. Read on to be inspired!
I’ve been a big Justina Blakeney fan for years. I admire her focus and drive in creating the beautiful home furnishings and interiors brand, Jungalow, which brought the re-advent and modernization of the bohemian style. She’s smart, talented, and on a mission to bring good design to the world! I’m constantly learning from her as a person, business person and artist, shop owner, and author.
One of the things I admire most about Justina Blakeney is how she has figured out what she wants and works her rear off to make it happen. For example, she sets time aside every day to work on becoming a better illustrator and artist showing me how you just have to make time to improve. Without further ado, meet Justina!
