Inspired by: Indonesia
A gateway between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the tropical archipelago of Indonesia is a natural and cultural wonderland. If you’ve seen the film ‘Eat, Pray, Love,’ you’ve probably swooned over the film’s Indonesian settings (in the idyllic green hillside town of Ubud on the island of Bali) just like the REstyle team did! We’re loving the particular blend of indoor/outdoor living inspired by warm tropical weather that leads to extra-large porches draped in fabric swags and rattan sunshades, with plenty of low furniture for lounging on. Intricately carved teak is a standout of Indonesian culture, although we have to admit we’re charmed by the more naturalistic approach taken by this Teak Slice coffee table, which leaves the wood’s natural burl and knots intact. Want to infuse some color? Indonesia is renowned for its textiles–their signature batik patterns are an officially UNESCO-recognized treasure–so don’t hesitate to splash around the batik and ikat prints wherever you can. We’re loving these vibrantly ikat-bound books as a way to add brilliant color to shelves, and would love to pile a mountain of these colorful pillows onto the leather & rattan-wrapped Regeant Daybed, creating the perfect place to nap under the swaying palms.
