8 Tips to Create a Balinese-Style Bedroom

Bali is the most well-known island holiday destination in the Indonesian archipelago. The island is also home to an ancient culture. You don’t have to fly thousands of miles to get there to soak yourself in the exotic culture. Rather, you can create a sanctuary at home to get away from the bustling city by creating a tropical retreat bedroom. There are simple ways to make you wake up at your favourite beach destination every morning.

1. Canopy Bed

Canopy bed is almost a must-have item for a balinese-inspired bedroom. Two panels of light and gauzy fabric drape behind the headboard and run all the way over the top of the bed to become a canopy. The perfect combination of the four sleek posts and the fabric panels creates a tropical feel in the bedroom.

2. Hand Carved Wood Decor

This bedroom also features a unique canopy bed designed with steps that reach to the bed and posts that go from the floor to the ceiling. The intricate carvings on the woods simply accentuate the room’s balinese style.

Frame a piece of Batik fabric and let it lean against the wall on the floor or hang it on the wall to infuse your bedroom with Javanese heritage. Batik garments play an important role in Javanese life. In October 2009, UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Batik is one of the major elements to embrace Balinese culture.
