We were very excited to learn that Taylor Tomasi Hill’s apartment where our Dynasty wallpaper is installed would be on! Her colorful bedroom and plants are a lovely mix.

Threads of Life, Ubud

Saturday, 3 March, 2012

Threads of Life is another of my favorite places in Bali because it is a fair trade business that uses culture and conservation to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia. The heirloom-quality textiles they commission are made with local materials and natural dyes and are absolutely beautiful works of art. With the proceeds from the Threads of Life gallery, they help weavers to form independent cooperatives and to manage their resources sustainably. In every market and from every beach vendor these days you can get cheap machine made Ikat but here you can get the real thing and support the artisans who made it.

Pura Tirta Empul, Bali

Friday, 2 March, 2012

We spent three weeks in February in Indonesia, researching and gathering inspiration. Tirta Empul is my favorite temple in Bali that I have seen so far. The sacred spring is said to have been created by Indra and have curative properties. An inscription dates the founding of a temple at the site to 926 AD. I love all of the colorful flower petals floating in the pools from the offerings.
