5.0 out of 5 stars Balinese houses - paradise.
This is a genuinely fine book. The photographs are spectacular, with fine color and resolution.

The text isn't too in-depth about houses in Bali, but the pictures speak for themselves.

I wholeheartedly recommend it, got me?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sphisticated and Balanced, February 21, 2007
This review is from: Bali Houses: New Wave Asian Architecture and Design (Hardcover)
Great photography and awesome scenarios. It really brings the feeling of being in Bali. And the decorations show the artistic side of the new interiors of the open living. It inspires my clients when they come inside my furniture store. Of the books I have from Bali, this is certainly the one with the best pictures!

This review is from: Bali Houses: New Wave Asian Architecture and Design (Hardcover)
A beautiful book well balanced in terms of text and pictures. The quality of the pictures is second to none. Compared to other books about Balinese style mostly focused on interiors, this one captures not only the essence of the interiors but also open spaces and gardens.

Being a Decorator, this comes in handy for clients who like the look of the Tropics. It's a complete book of ideas, design strategies, and an overall look into another world of comfortable, colorful, Paradise influence to bring a little joy to the reader.

This a book of beautiful photographs taken of houses in Bali.
I enjoyed the architecture and the gardens.
I also highly recommend Tropical Style, which encompasses
houses in different locales of Southeast Asia.

More a style book than anything edifying. There are no floor plans and therefore no context and no way of understanding the relationship between inside and outside, which is the key to this kind of architecture. A lot of "lifestyle" photos a la Martha Stewart, close-ups with an emphasis on native handicrafts. Nigh impossible to figure out the relationship of the spaces to each other. Not even a decent discussion of the weather, which at 85 degrees and 85% relative humidity, requires a through breeze in every space to prevent the interiors from being stifling.

The style appropriates a lot from recent luxury hotel development in the tropics, with infinity pools galore, chunky furniture and rough crafts. Luxury hotels being aspirational spaces, it is no surprise that the features have migrated to domestic architecture.
