Transporting the tranquil essence of Bali into your indoor spaces or garden is a dream come true for outdoor enthusiasts. The tropical island paradise has long been revered for its laid-back lifestyle, lush greenery and stunning natural surroundings. Bring that same sense of calm and serenity right to your home with Bali-inspired outdoor decor.

What are the characteristics of Bali style decor?

Bali style is serene and pampering, so pick earthy neutral colours that relax your body and mind. You want big loungers perfect for curling up with a book or a cocktail, lanterns for ambience and a side table for all those empty carafes and pitchers.

Woven materials are a hallmark of the Balinese style. Think natural, sustainable materials like bamboo and rattan for furniture, lighting and decorative accents. Whether it’s a cozy daybed, a hammock for lounging or a statement piece like a woven planter, these materials blend seamlessly with the surrounding nature.

Another key element of the Bali style is the abundance of tropical plants. From towering palm trees to hanging vines, greenery plays a vital role in creating a serene outdoor space.

Of course, no Bali-inspired backyard is complete without cozy seating areas where you and your loved ones can gather and relax. Opt for an array of seating with colourful blankets or throws to add a pop of colour to your outdoor decor.
