Psychedelic wall paintings in our new house on Bali

Hey guys! Today I’m going to show you some photos from a house we are now renting on Bali. We are located 25 minutes ride north from Ubud in village with only few expats living around. It is a very silent place comparing to Ubud and to the southern parts of Bali of course. The house itself was built by some Canadian guy and it has very little in common with local architecture. The first floor is an octagonal prism and the second floor is an octagonal pyramid. Almost every wall is painted with many Hindu and one Buddhist themes making the building a small psychedelic art monument. Below is the front view of the house.

The first thing you see when you come inside is a huge wooden statue of Garuda with Vishnu riding it. The kitchen is in the same space and the picture after the kitchen is the main entrance from the inside. There is lots natural light during the day time and in the night there is almost no streetlight and since there are very few neighbours we have almost no light pollution thus every night we can see tons of stars.

We have spiral stairs you should climb to get to the second floor. There are 3 small bedrooms, a room for meditation and a toilet which can does not work and has 2 deer heads inside, plus the doorlock to this toilet is broken and we can not open it so you can see these heads only through the broken lock :)

Finally here are two pics of the view when you step out of the house. Today it’s too cloudy but sometimes you can see volcanos Batur and Agung.

Being honest I like the pictures of this house more than the house in real life since I was trying to put all the mess out of the compositions ha-ha :) Anyway it’s pretty cool and me and my wife will surely remember it after we leave it.

[…] I do not agree 100% with the project. Maybe because we now live in a crazy house on Bali with very few buildings around, lots of Hindu temples with wavy and floral decorations and rice […]
