This comprehensive interior design book features over 280 photographs and insightful commentary about the Pacific paradise island of Bali.

From the author of the bestselling Bali Houses comes an inspirational new look at Balinese modern architecture and design.Bali Living is a unique selection of private homes, rental properties, restaurant and wedding facilities, a sports complex and villas.

Traditional Balinese compound architecture is evident throughout, but most of the buildings included are contemporary structures that reinterpret old forms and materials in new and exciting ways. Glass and metal have replaced alang-alang and bamboo, but in some cases the old materials are referenced and used in new ways. The interiors are highlighted with a great selection of furniture, artwork, sculpture, paintings and more from local Balinese designers and shops.

A dreamer's book come true, Bali Living is an inspiration for anyone interested in home design and architecture.
