How Does A Modern Bali Home Look Like?

With modern architecture influence coming in to Bali, which concept was brought in by international visitors for the past ten years, there has been a transformation in the way Balinese build their homes or villas. Take a look at this Balitecture ideas of Bali Villas.

What is Balinese interior design? What is Balinese style?

Well, here’s the answer from Google: Balinese style incorporates the outdoors like no other interior decorating style and is grounded in nature — and unlike Scandinavian, British or even French nature, Bali is a place of wild greenery, tropical foliage and rich flora.

However, with simplicity introduced by modern Scandinavian design, Bali has incorporated this slim streamline into their teak wood furniture, bed frame, mirrors and chairs and use lighter natural wooden finish if it’s not white washed. Something you won’t find back in the eighties where Bali homes were filled with heavy dark victorian shaped furnitures imported from Java Island.

What’s interesting is, you don’t loose the tropical feel of the whole interior design as greenery is still become the main highlight both indoor and outdoor, with a highly maintained beautiful landscape. Yes, it takes several gardeners to keep it beautiful, so you can still enjoy the outdoor living in the garden most of the daylight, like I always do.

Should we call this modern Bali architecture and interior design? I can’t agree more. This is certainly not the hotels and homes we rented when my family visited Bali back in the eighties. It’s much much modern today, but when you wake up in the morning, you can still catch this island feel immediately.
