SLEEPING IN BALI
The canopy is one of the considered styles in their bedroom. Balinese home uses a crisp white linen as beddings, a netting is then hung from canopies or descends from the ceiling. The netting hung from the canopy serves a purpose, it adds a touch of romance to your bedroom. But the function of the netting is to keep the insects away if you chose to leave the windows open and let the breeze soothe you to sleep. Tie the netting back at each corner of the bed to keep you from tripping over.
Bathrooms have been the most luxurious in a Bali designed home. Teak is the common wood used due to its high oil content and the ability to repel water.
Impress your guests by recreating this vibration in your home. Fill the tub halfway with water and toss in a handful of flower petals, add a few orchids to complete the vibration of a luxurious bath. Roll white bath towels and leave them on the countertop or in a basket.
