Isn't Bali always a good idea? Be it any time of the year; who doesn't like the relaxed feel of the beaches, sipping onto refreshing mocktails and cocktails, relishing tasty food by the sea or enjoying the beautiful villa indoors.
How about creating this feel at your home itself !?
So what if you cannot travel and had to cancel your summer plans as of now. Let's not moan and let's get creative. Make your space worthy of a vacation by bringing the personality of the island into your living space.
To do that let us understand, What is Balinese style?
Balinese style has a fine balance between beautiful, raw organic elements and fresh colours that are blended with high quality craftsmanship. Deeply grounded in nature, full of wild greenery and tropical flora with a mix of earthy textures, Bali is where local materials are used for design and decor that extensively reflect local culture and tradition.
So let's explore how you can recreate the captivating Bali experience at your humble abode..
1. Natural Elements
A hearty resort breakfast is the most loved meal of the day during any holiday, mostly because of the endless variety of delectable edibles.
