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..

Just the way one feels extremely relaxed and rejuvenated in Bali, decorating spaces in your home with plants and flowers provokes positive feelings by detoxifying the air around you. Vibrant colours of the flowers have a calming effect helping in generating a stress free, happy vibe.

To feel like you are on a holiday, we could make our interiors feel like the exteriors that would give the 'holiday at home' vibe. For the Balinese staycation feel, hang a natural cotton fibre hammock in your balcony and sunbathe all day.

The famous playwright, Noel Coward, very correctly stated post one of his travels, "It appears that each Balinese native, from the womb to the tomb is creative." 

It indeed is true how this island has been oozing with artistic endeavour. Their style never fails to inspire interior designers, stylists and decor fanatics to beautifully combine organic elements and textures into everyday life.

Let your creative juices flow and decorate your homes with love while you stay tuned for Nestasia's latest stoneware collection which will hit the website soon.
