Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Francione continues his examination of contemporary Balinese architecture, visiting 21 residential dwellings selected because of their architectural creativity and their un-hackneyed interior design schemes." —Library Journal

"…Francione and Inglis have provided residential designers and architects a valuable sourcebook of sumptuous design concepts that may be adapted and interpreted for many, no matter whether they reside in Bali or elsewhere." —Examiner.com

Library Journal

While Iwatate (eat.work.shop) visits 30 homes throughout Japan whose modern design is "sharp, crisp, transparent, and light," Francione (Bali Modern, Bali Houses) continues his examination of contemporary Balinese architecture, visiting 21 residential dwellings "selected because of their architectural creativity and their un-hackneyed interior design schemes." Recommended for large and academic interior design collections.
