Holy temples to posh hotels: exceptional interiors from Indonesia to Japan

Zen. Soothing. Mystical. Meditative. All the most serene words in the world couldn’t begin to describe the effect of Asia’s most beautiful interiors. Whether it’s a temple in Vietnam, a coffee plantation in Java, or a Tadao Ando-designed house in Japan, each interior chosen for this book is remarkable not only for its aesthetics but for its spirit. The book is “clothed” in a silk-like curry-colored fabric adorned with chrysanthemum flowers. These interiors have what it takes to transport you to a sacred place; breathe deeply, delve in, and be inspired.
