With over 350 beautiful photographs and insightful commentary, Island Style reveals the lush, tropical architecture and interior design of Indonesia. A tropical island inspires thoughts of warm breezes, crystal clear water and white beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. But tropical islands are more than just gorgeous beaches, particularly in the vast archipelago of Indonesia, with its diverse peoples, cultures and traditions stretching from Java to Bali and beyond. In Island Style, the inspiration artists and designers have long found in Indonesia comes to life with a new generation of architects and designers as they discover this island paradise. Twenty-five stunning luxury homes inspired by the natural tropical settings of Indonesia are showcased in these pages, setting a new standard for tropical Asian architecture. From private beach bungalows to vacation villas to island hideaways, each of these dream houses expresses a different aspect of Indonesia's unique design heritage. Simple yet exotic, minimalist yet organic, cosmopolitan yet local and sustainable-the common denominator for all of these homes is that they are the stuff of island dreams.
