This comprehensive interior design book showcases the best in Balinese architecture with over 280 photographs and insightful commentary.

Bali Living showcases 21 cutting-edge tropical designs from a creative new generation of architects and interior designers working in Bali. Their work is changing the face of contemporary design worldwide—part of Bali's "new wave" tropical architecture which has spread across Asia and further afield to Japan, Europe and the Americas.

Most of these projects are exclusive private residences, but a few are public spaces including a spectacular cliff-side wedding chapel, a stunning beach club and a poolside restaurant. Each property has been included because of its creativity and contribution to the ongoing international conversation on tropical design. All of these homes are innovative examples of what may be called the "creative essence" of Balinese living.
