Somehow, some way, this exciting collaboration escaped our radar, but thanks to a head’s up this week on the wedding registry of a friend, I now present you with some dreamy, affordable, maximalist-boho decor: The Jungalow’s Justina Blakeney has a line for Target.

Part of a larger collaboration with Makers Collective, an online site featuring emerging artists, Justina Blakeney’s line of Target bedding and throw pillows features her signature 70s-inspired bohemian aesthetic and the lush, maximalist inspirations of her own world travels.

Of course, fans of The Jungalow founder will find the monstera leaves so iconically connected to the Instagram star in her “Ojai Leaf” print, an embroidered linen-blend fabric used on throw pillows and duvet/sham sets—which was inspired by an anniversary trip Blakeney took with her husband to Ojai, California and designed off of her original watercolor of those vacation vibes.

There’s also the “hypnotic” design of the pure cotton “Global” quilt and sham set, featuring a Greek key-like pattern in black and white broken up with a border of smaller triangles in warm orange and red hues, which was supposedly inspired by a vintage African textile that Blakeney spotted at a market in Paris.

Similarly inspired, the “Akeba” duvet set features a vibrant geometric pattern with trompe l’oeil “tassels” on 100% barkcloth, and the “Hadarah” duvet set features seemingly Indian-inspired vintage sack cloth striping with an embroidered “mirror” border.

More neutral (at least for The Jungalow) designs include the denim-inspired “Avisa” quilt set and the “Pilar” duvet set, which could easily be incorporated into more traditional decorating—especially if complemented by a bedroom full of lush plants for the full Blakeney inspiration.

My favorite piece, however—and the one our friends registered for, which we will be gifting them—is the embroidered linen “Ayo” sun circle pillow. It brings back visceral warm-fuzzies of my parents bedroom, heavily decorated with various brass wall hangings and textiles my mom brought back from her time living in the Philippines and Thailand in the early 70s. According to Blakeney, her sun circle pillow was inspired by the word for joy in Yoruba, the official language of Nigeria, and is meant to bring sunshine and joy to any bedroom. I can’t think of a more auspicious gift for newlyweds.

Because we’re a little late to the party, some of the pieces have already sold out, but many are still available on Target.com—and now on sale, with prices ranging from $16.99 to $112.49.
