Bali: It's here. Exotic.



If eclectic and multicultural decor is your style, then we highly recommend picking up August's Architectural Digest. Pictured below: film director Rob Cohen's very green bungalows in Bali, designed by Linda Garland, Irish-born designer and environmentalist. Eco-designer Emerald Starr first introduced Cohen to the first villa on the Indian ocean; he developed the rest with the help of Garland and the goal of creating a diverse living space between buildings with the oxygenating lake below.



All of the buildings were crafted by master Sumatran builders from recycled wood, pegs and no nails.



Furniture and fabrics are all antiques or hand-crafted reproductions. The result: an earthly bliss. Who knew simplicity could be so elegant and luxurious?
