Design Inspiration: Bring Bali Home
Balinese color and craftsmanship add rich tropical style to indoor and outdoor rooms
Melissa Alvarado Sierra October 25, 2011
Nature, open areas and plenty of light only begin to describe the beauty of Balinese décor. Bali designs also represent the tropics, luxury and exquisite craftsmanship. You can choose Balinese décor for just one room in your home or you can completely transform your living space into your own Balinese retreat. Either way, make use of sophisticated accessories and a rich color palette to bring the feeling of this Indonesian island to your dwelling.
This luxurious courtyard house was laid out with nature and open space in mind. Tropical cabanas, natural materials and an exotic pool help compose a stunning place ideal for a vacation at home.
Space is appreciated in Balinese home design. Here, a vaulted ceiling allows elements underneath to express their beauty without crowding the space. A strong color palette is also used, with fuschia, yellow and orange imitating the beautiful colors of flowers found around Bali.
Balinese-inspired accessories are a great way to add character to any space.
Intricate chocolate-brown panels are quintessential Balinese accessories. Here, a beautiful panel was used as a headboard, and rich colors were added to the bed to achieve a true Balinese style.
A table lamp like this, featuring the main characteristics of Balinese design (nature and rich colors), helps you define the theme.
For a small dose of Balinese charm, just apply the color scheme and materials. Here, a sleek bathtub is turned into an exotic item thanks to its wooden legs, while a simple storage cabinet gets the Indonesian treatment with Balinese accessories.
To easily convey the essence of Bali, use wooden vertical blinds that can help you bring all other elements together.
