In their last house, Heather felt the pendant lights over the kitchen island bench were wasted. “It was more of a prep area, so this time around we decided to have them over the dining table where we’ll often sit with friends after dinner and play cards or board games,” she explains. The ‘Hanging Ball Lamps’ in Natural Wicker from House Of Orange also help to fill the spacious open-plan area and balance the polished concrete floors (right). “I love the intimacy created by pendant lights over the dining table and the earthiness of the rattan – it just softens the space and works really well,” she says. The ‘Coral Casino’ print by photographer Ilana Sallick from United Interiors, paired with a ‘Meadow’ braided woollen rug in Ivory by Rugs For Good, completes the dining zone’s breezy, Palm Beach-inspired look.

Palm Springs Coastal Glamour

But first a little history; the style originates from the Californian city of the same name, circa 1930, when Hollywood celebrities took their holidays in Palm Springs. The look evolved as part old-world Hollywood glamour, part mid-century modern, all with a minimalist twist. The resulting design du jour is one of relaxed, laid back elegance that is perfectly suited to the Australian climate and lifestyle. Think open plan living with natural light, white and bright colours, tropical plants and glamorous accent pieces that evoke casual elegance.

One of our California casual style. Natural elements with wood and rattan of Bali interiors style, create a beautiful coastal feel over white walls and floor.

“Commercial settings are great for us because they give us more freedom to be creative because the client doesn’t have to live in the project so they’re great for dipping toe in water and showing what we can do,” Carrier says. “Plus, Baron gave us the freedom to flip fussy Healdsburg wine culture, which can be dark and boring, on its head,” Mutter-Rottmayer adds.

Patina: A Sanctuary in Maldives

Escape to the golden fringes of the island in the Maldives for mellow serenity. Or tune into marine wonder within the reaches of our lagoon.

Each of the private villa sanctuaries is honed from nature’s materials and pure creativity to soothe your senses and soul.

No man is an island entire of itself. How to build a space where hospitality design provides the romance and deep contact with nature but still boosts social encounters? How to lead people to really share with one another this extreme experience of one of the most remote places on the planet?

People naturally seek the complicity of others when going thru extraordinary days. Everyone on this island is connected by a common search and dedication to achieve one of the biggest archetypes in literature: the island. The ultimate metaphor for isolation allows people to do things they would not normally do. Without the pressures of society, we go back to the basics of humanity; we’re linked to each other.

The hotel in the Maldives will provide a welcoming space for people to live light, unleash creativity, amplify natural feelings in a dreamy state. For the past years, studio mk27 team has had the privilege to imagine a shelter for a radical living experience, a temporary home in the exuberant infinite blues, wildlife, and open skies.

The hotel is a kaleidoscope of atmospheres organized in an ascending way: from private to public, from isolation to belonging, from simplicity to sophistication. We escalate the textures and emotions from 0 to 100, from soft shadows to overwhelming light. It’s a rhythm with contrast, pauses, and transparencies. From slow dolce far niente to exuberant real vitality, it is a place for people to bond with nature and each other, for people to experience the essential with glamour.

How Pure Salt Interiors Believes in Rattan Pendant Lights

Born as pure Indonesian, and raised in different islands throughout the archipelago, my eyes have been familiar to home decors and furnitures with handowen technique. This handloom functional home goods is our daily encounter in anything we use at home. From rugs to pillow to basket to seating to wall to table and even bed frame.

And with abundant natural earth resources we have in the country, my designer’s heart can’t help it but using this rattan, palm leaf, bamboo, seagrass, willow reeds, banana abaca and many more kinds of natural straws to use in home decor designs.

So when I learned how this natural fibers are used by interior designers around the world, and how deep they believe in rattan pendant lights for their beautiful interior design, I couldn’t be more joyful to see them in many of Pure Salt Interiors design aesthetic.

They know how this piece would make a difference in any room. For this, I especially thank you ladies for believing in us, the Indonesian crafters. You truly are a trendsetter in modern coastal interior design and we wish you a flourishing, thriving and sustainable business in the future.

Sending you much love from Bali.

The biophilia hypothesis (also called BET) suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. Edward O. Wilson introduced and popularized the hypothesis in his book, Biophilia (1984). He defines biophilia as “the urge to affiliate with other forms of life”.
