“The Chameleon”

When you imagine a trip to Bali, you may think first of lying on white sand beaches in the shade of tall palms. But a bit away from the water is where the magic can really happen. The jungles of Bali are rich with greenery and wildlife — and if you’re lucky enough, you may even find yourself at one of the island’s most luxurious estates, nestled right into that jungle. The home featured here is just such a retreat. Featuring a sparkling clear infinity pool, an outdoor bath, and plenty of indoor space for the long and luxurious evening of a vacation, this home is a true treasure, as you’ll see in the photos from photographer Daniel Koh.

Here are some the 3 plants mentioned in the video above.
  • Areca Palm is a great living room plant. Excellent air humidifier, removes Carbon Dioxide and toxins from the air. A recent study done by NASA gives this indoor plant an air purifying score of 8.5.
  • Snake Plant (also called Mother in law’s tongue) is an ideal bedroom plant. Even though most plants take away Oxygen at night, the Snake plant does the reverse and maintains a healthy amount of Oxygen near you while you sleep.
  • Money Plant removes formaldehydes and other volatile chemicals. Can be a good addition to just about any room.
