Villa Nilaya is a laidback luxury 3-bedroom oceanfront home with a private infinity pool and yoga deck overlooking the Andean Sea on the quiet east coast of Bali. Owned by an Australian artist and often booked for wellness retreats, Villa Nilaya is adorned with inspiring décor thoughtfully-curated over years of the owner's worldly travels - including a floating double bed swing from Rajasthan, India.
The warm slowness of Karangasem and the artistic essence of Villa Nilaya stood out to me as two prominent energies of this property, so for this project I wanted to bring out the natural elements of both the interior design and the villa's seaside landscape, as well as a little bit of thickness to represent the balmy Bali heat.
"I designed Villa Nilaya Bali with only pleasure in mind, combining traditional architecture with modern convenience. I’ve filled it with original artworks collected on journeys throughout South East Asia and India with beautiful textiles, sculptures and paintings and it gives me great pleasure to share this with those who stay." - Anna Kwiecinska, Owner
