“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.

The Makeover…It’s Personal – The Master Bedroom with Walk-in Closet and Ensuite Bath

The demolition and construction started in our service kitchen that will house our future Master’s Bedroom.

Since the whole house will apparently be uncomfortable to live,  we decided to prioritize the bedroom as originally planned and suggested to the architect.  This will be the Phase 1.  The room will accommodate my whole family during the renovation period.

We wanted the same requirements as in our previous one, but we wanted it to have a high ceiling, bigger space with the open shelves walk-in closet and ensuite T&B as usual.  The architect suggested making a customized king size bed frame with headboard, including the side tables.

This room has been our common bedroom, our refuge from all dust and mess from outside and temporary storage.  It was definitely an unwelcoming idea for my wife, but does she have any choice?  Even if it was not yet ready for the installation of the air-conditioning unit, it was immediately installed.

Crunched for space, the residents of these homes—mostly under 1,000 square feet—have the same ideas: look upward and compartmentalize. Lofted sleeping areas, closets, and reading nooks are among the smart space-saving solutions.

‘night night’ is a lamp that is meant to accompany people to sleep. designed by belgian-based vanessa hordies it takes the form of an hourglass in which the sand within covers the actual light, drowning out the luminosity of the bedroom. when you turn the hourglass over, a timer switches on for 15 minutes, approximately the amount of time needed for someone to fall asleep.

research has shown that it usually takes people between ten to twenty minutes to fall asleep.  the objective of ‘night night’ is simple. following the sleeper during his or her nightly ritual, the lamp’s function is to switch off so that it does not remain on for the entire duration of the night.

all of the electronics are built into the light’s wooden base. when a button is pushed the lamp switches on for 15 minutes. it is essential for the lamp turn off on its own, enabling the sleeper to get his visa for dreamland.

‘night night’ was presented as part of ‘101% designed in brussels’ during the 2011 stockholm furniture fair.
