Inside Designer Justina Blakeney’s Colorful SoCal Home | Open Door | Architectural Digest

Today AD is welcomed to Southern California by creative powerhouse and Jungalow founder Justina Blakeney for a tour of her vibrant and welcoming home. The Spanish-style home and 2,700 square foot property are a slice of paradise, built in the early ’30s with traditional Mediterranean details and midcentury-modern flair. Blakeney, along with husband Jason Rosencrantz and contractors New Generation Home Improvements, tweaked the original five-bedroom layout to better suit their family’s (and growing creative empire’s) needs – including converting the garage into a guest room/workshop ideal for testing her new wallpapers and bedding. With every room set to evoke a different mood, it’s all hyper-eclectic. “We were really intentional about creating different spaces for the experiences that we want to have in the home.”
