bali | design

It's easy to miss the details in Bali; there's so much colour and noise that honing in on the subtle doesn't come easily. For me, hiding behind a camera made the details clearer and it was the little things - door frames, lamps, hanging plants - that inspired. 

In Bali almost everything is made by hand and it's evident in most spaces; bamboo, teak, stone and grass combine to, quite literally, create a home. I enjoyed the blend of heavy and light, of vibrant and subdued but most of all I loved the handwoven features - oh the baskets! If only I could have brought them all home. And the plants! In Ubud, green sprouted from stairs and walls and cracks in the pavement. Plants grew from coconut shells and chipped terracotta. Bali's aesthetic is very wabi-sabi.  


ps. can you find Che?

  1. I love every inch of Bali but it is true, sometimes it is hard to see the little things within the hustle and bustle.
