The jungalow is bursting at the seems with all of my precious #thriftingwithjustina finds (and some designer pieces) from all over the world, and, truth be told…I just can’t stop. If I drive by a thrift shop I pull over so fast you’d think there was an ambulance behind me. Once I’m inside, I’m scanning shelves like nobody’s business! If I see something I think is cool, and the price is decent, I go for it.
I figure I have an addiction at this point because it’s gotten SO bad that I’ve started to hide things around the house when I bring them home, like it’s alcohol or weed or something–haha!! I’ve got paintings, wall-waeavings, pitchers, mid-century lamps hiding ALL under my desk, under my bed, behind doors…it’s really bad–but I do love my crap!
I like to rotate pieces that are on display before I put the stuff in clients’ homes or sell them. Then, of course, there are pieces that belong the the permanent collection that are always on view at the jungalow, like my Ndebele fertility dolls (not that we’re already trying for number two). Anyway, here are a few snaps of me rotating some new-to-me pieces in and out of this little nook in our bedroom. Which look is your fave?
Hope you have a restful weekend, friends! I’m very much looking forward to chilling out!
