Portraits out of leaves and flowers: an open creative project by Justina Blakeney

ABOUT JUSTINA
Author of the New York Times best-selling book The New Bohemians, L.A. based designer and blogger Justina Blakeney credits her multiethnic family, her degree from UCLA in World Arts and Cultures and extensive travel for her boho aesthetic. With a passion for color, pattern and plants, and over 1.5 million followers on social media, Justina and her blog, TheJungalow.com, have quickly become the go-to sources for bohemian design inspiration. For Justina, decorating is about feeling free, having fun and getting a little bit wild. 

I love her design mantra and what she is about!

JUSTINA’S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
I believe that good design increases quality of life. I believe in vintage, organic and handmade. I believe in the healing power of plants, good light and fresh air.  I believe that objects carry the stories of their makers–so things that are made with love, care and good materials bring those qualities with them where-ever they go.  I believe in recycling. I believe in diversity. I believe in creativity. I believe that design can save the world. Decorate wild!
