My Balinese Rental House
The shortage of
Passport To Design posts has been a result of poor internet connection, folks. I’m sorry! But now, due to popular demand, here are some photos of my rental house in Ubud, Bali. Ubud is the artistic center of Bali – there are so many boutiques that sell beautiful clothing, decor, accessories, art and more, not to mention the plethora of adorable restaurants. The town has really changed since the last time I visited in 2009 (I blame you, Elizabeth Gilbert…you and your Eating, Praying and Loving) and while the rampant tourism has robbed the town of its original charm, it’s still a fabulous place and I love it here.
Our quaint beach house rental in Panama (remember THIS POST?) took a little sprucing up before we moved in and felt comfortable, but our rental home at Ben’s Homestay on Jalan Suweta in Ubud is much different. We didn’t need to buy any additional furniture pieces, no extra pillows or decor…it pretty much came move-in ready and with enough beautiful and simple touches to satisfy my designer-self.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves – hope you enjoy this glimpse into my Balinese life :)
There you have it! This is how we are living it up in Bali – a truely lush and wonderful paradise that everyone should visit at least once. Our rent is up soon and the house is already promised to someone else (devastating!), but it’s all good because Jeff and I have a change in plans on the horizon…but we’ll keep it a bit of secret for now :)
Have you ever been to Bali? Is our rental house what you imagined? You can stay here too one day, check out Ben’s Homestay’s official website for more info.
