The Colours Of Bali...










I've had a wonderful week - spent up in Bali on a week of work with a little 'health' thrown in for good measure. I spent the week, with my colleague Sophie (those of you who came to the March 12 workshop will remember her as our photographer) - sourcing some wonderful things for upcoming interiors and for a few secret projects to be revealed in the not so distant future. Bali is such a lovely place - full of colour and life but also humility and balance. And the Balinese are a joy to be around - particularly in times of trouble (like when this 41 year old Byron Bay girl, pretending to be much younger and far more carefree, had a teensy accident on her old vespa!!!) Here are some pics of the colours of Bali - to inspire peace and joy...

Are you heading to Bali? Here's a little list of must-do places to go in Ubud...

Indus - Owned by the talented and extraordinary Janet De Neefe (author of Fragrant Rice) - can't be beaten for the stupendous views of the Ubud rice paddies and great menu...
Sari Organic - The most divine restaurant - situated a 10-minute walk through the rice paddies in a beautiful organic garden..
Little Kafe - A part of the Yoga Barn - a temple of yogic joy - Little Kafe serves a mean espresso. Perfectly consumed with a 'Blood Cleaner' juicy concoction...
Gaya Gelato - Out of Ubud, but only a Vespa ride away, Italians Massimo and Colette create gelato heaven at their beautiful tropical gelateria. Not to be missed...
Body Works - An institution in Ubud - the ideal place to be massaged and cured of all your ails. Ask for Ketut...

I just love brightly colored walls. Which is why we're painting our bathroom a deep mustard yellow. Yum.
