With its stunning beaches, traditional temples and lush greenery, Bali truly is a slice of paradise. So, it's no surprise that Balinese-inspired interior has become increasingly popular as people seek to bring that laid-back island feel into their homes.
Whether you want to create a full Balinese interior, or just incorporate a few elements of the aesthetic throughout, it all comes down to the furniture and decor you choose. We take a look at the top furnishings to shop if you want to create your own idyllic Balinese haven.
1. Handcrafted furniture
You don't have to look far in Bali to find woven textiles, woodcarvings or intricate furniture designs handcrafted by skilled artisans. As such, furniture that really shows off the workmanship of the piece (such as pieces that feature detailed carvings) will help to give a Balinese feel to your home.
In particular, look for pieces made from fine quality materials such as teak or mahogany, as Balinese craftsmen often use these to forge a connection with the natural world.

2. Outdoor furniture
Warm, tropical weather is part of Bali's charm and often sees locals adopt an indoor/outdoor fusion to their homes. From outdoor baths and showers to couches and lounges, the idea is to be at one with nature and make the most of the sunny days.
To get the look at home, invest in weatherproof outdoor pieces in neutral tones or natural materials. If you really want to create an outdoor oasis, you can also consider adding bamboo screens, plants and lanterns to complete the look.

A cross between a chaise lounge, a sofa and a bed, daybeds are extremely popular in Bali as they can be used as either indoor or outdoor furniture. The versatile pieces can be used as a social area to sit and chat, a quiet place to create ritual offerings or a spot to simply relax and enjoy the day.
For indoor daybeds, look for one that has some kind of upright back and decorate it with cushioning to help integrate it into your lounge and make it more comfortable. If you're after an outdoor daybed, you may want to opt for a cocoon-shaped one which offers protection from the sun and often comes with weatherproof cushioning.

4. Canopy beds
Nothing gives the illusion of a holiday paradise quite like a canopy bed. Wooden four-posters are often the first thing you'll see in a Balinese villa and, with light, breezy curtains, they give a sense of escape from the world around you.
Look for a canopy bed in a solid wood design to get the look at home, or simply invest in an inexpensive white mosquito net to give your bedroom a similar dreamy feel.

5. Wall panels
Referred to as the Island of Gods, Bali often sees rituals and arts intertwined. Balinese wood carvings are an example of this, with the art having been originally made to adorn Balinese temples. Today, you'll find them all over Balinese guest rooms or in hotel lobbies, making them an integral part of Balinese interior.
If you're after something truly traditional, look for wood panels depicting demons or gods. If you want something a little more modern, try an intricate mandala piece.

With volcanic soil and frequent rainfall, Bali is an incredibly fertile land absolutely full of lush greenery. And nothing says tropical paradise quite like impressive plants and botanicals.
Whether real or fake, filling your home with an array of ferns, palms, bamboo, monstera leaves or large banana plants is possibly the quickest and simplest way of bringing a true tropical feel into your home.

7. Art and ornamental details
Detail is key when creating any interior design and the Balinese-style is no different. To get that island feel just right, look for lighting in the way of woven pendant lights or glass jar lanterns.
Also consider adding decorative elements like tedung umbrellas, elephant statues, lanterns or buddhas throughout your home to really get that Balinese influence across.
