Living the Bali Life

In February 2018 I moved to Bali to work as Design Director for John Hardy. Bali has been such an adventure and I love the lush environment and rich culture. The architecture, design, and landscape of Bali is really interesting and inspiring and the waves aren’t so bad either! I have spent a lot of my free time exploring the island as well as the surrounding islands and other areas in Southeast Asia. Below are some photos of my travels in Bali!

The streets of Canggu in Bali. This is the area where I live in Bali, which has quickly become a tourist ‘hotspot’. There is an eclectic mix of locals and foreigners and a ton of great food, fun, and waves to be had for all!

The Kapal Bamboo store on the John Hardy Compound where I work. Kapal Bamboo’s design mimics a boat and the name actually means “Bamboo Ship” in Bahasa Indonesia. This structure is made from Bamboo and is a true architectural masterpiece! I took this photo before sunset during a ‘firefly dinner’. As you can see the candles light up the night as fireflies do.

The architecture in Bali is a beautiful mix of clean geometric lines and extravagant organic sculptures. I have found this to be really inspiring as I design my next collection!

You can’t beat the food in Bali! It is the land of all things organic and even the vegan food is insanely delicious. This is a yummy dish from the Avocado Factory in Canggu, which overlooks a rice field.

This is Karma Beach on the southern coast of Uluwatu. Uluwatu has some beautiful cliffs, clear waters, and some great waves!
