When you drive around Seminyak in Bali, Indonesia, you’ll notice the furniture and home stores that line the city’s streets. From traditional weaves to modern structures, there’s so much design inspiration you can take in while on holiday in this vacationer’s favorite.

We put together a few design ideas that you can incorporate in your own home’s interiors. No need to fly all the way to Denpasar to get that resort villa feel! You can take the inspiration and bring the Bali vibe straight into your own house.

Take your tiles out of the bathroom.


Why not turn your lanai into the Motel Mexicola of your house? A backyard bar with metal lawn chairs and tiled tables make for easy-peasy cleaning, too.

RL Tip: Find sleek outdoor chairs and a good selection of tiles at Wilcon Depot.

If you've got it, flaunt it.



Exposed wooden ceilings give a space an instant cozy feel. Try painting the beams a contrasting color to the wood for a modern take.

Experiment with textures.


Mix metals, wood, and marble for an interplay of visual texture.

Shake up traditional elements with modern touches.


Give old wooden chairs an update by painting them in vibrant colors.

RL Tip: Don't forget your lighting pieces. Consider going for abaca pendant lights and warm white light for an extra snug appeal.

Repurpose old items to create something new.


If you’ve got old shutters you’re about to throw out, why not create a wall accent or divider out of them? Look at this massive installation that surrounds Potato Head Beach Club. Gorgeous, right?

Add vintage touches for a classic feel.


Reimagine these iron railings into your balcony or stairs for a major throwback.

Find a balance between style and comfort.


We love how these solihiya lounge chairs get a soft touch from fun patterned throw pillows. If you have a similar piece, use two as accent pieces in your lanai. Make it extra inviting with fluffy pillows and a throw.

Don't forget the plants.


Consider having potted plants or a vertical garden as part of your decor. These wonders bring the outdoors in and complete the resort-inspired aesthetic.
