HAVELI – A little treasure trove of extraordinary homewares…

HAVELI – Interior Decoration

Image

These two stores situated diagonally opposite each other on Jl. Seminyak, offer home-wares that are uniquely beautiful with a definite stylish, refined and elegant edge.

Bargain hunters will particularly LOVE the second of these stores since it’s a “factory outlet” type store where the prices are even fabber than the first!

These home-ware stores stock European, Moroccan and Asian combinations of tableware, linen, cushion covers, lamps, mirrors, stunning chandeliers, jewelry and accessories. Beautiful fabrics are made of taffeta, silk, satin, French linens and Indian saris – all in gorgeous jewel-like colours.

If you adore home-wares as I do, it is a wonderful delight to find beautiful, unique items, without the designer price-tag, for your individual table settings, gifts for your gal pals or just distinctive items for your home.

Stylish Seminyak – the Rodeo Drive of Bali!

20130903-151232.jpg

Seminyak is every girls dream (and most men’s nightmare….lol). The strip of designer boutiques along Jalan Laksmana and Jalan Raya Seminyak are currently the fashion capital of Bali with beautiful, often unique items, at a fraction of the cost in Australia. You can easily spend hours shopping and most of the stores are close to each other.

From elegant to bohemian, free-flowing flimsy to figure hugging glamour, this shopping strip has it all!

I usually find that there is no pressure from the sales assistants and yet they’re there to help if needed, the prices are attractive and the shops are air-conditioned.

Most boutiques are fixed price, but it doesn’t hurt to ask if they’re negotiable. Sometimes, I really do feel like I’ve come away with a “steal”.

Amazing upmarket boutiques include:

Paul Ropp – 39 Jl Raya Seminyak: fun, bright, electric and unique

Uma & Leopold – 44B Jl Raya Seminyak: great colours, silhouettes and cool accessories

Magali Pascal – 177 Jl Laksmana: edgy, chic, young and glamorous

Lulu Yasmine – 100 Jl Laksmana: sophisticated, feminine, unique standout items

Lily Jean – 102 Jl Laksmana: for sexy statement pieces

Mist – 42 Jl Raya Seminyak : for flowy, pastal kaftans

Niconico Intimo – 12 Jl Raya Seminyak: for intimate ensembles and swimwear

There are many more boutiques for you to see, but I have to leave a few surprises for you….

For bargains, head to Seminyak Square for el cheapo sunglasses, beads, bangles, big earrings, scarves and sandals. If you need a refreshing beverage or lunch, head into one of the little cafes there for some brief respite.

Hint 1: Early morning shopping means a special “morning price” and you will beat the heat.

Hint 2: For a little after-shop care, treat your feet to a quick “foot rejuvenation” at one of the many spa salons before heading back with your purchases.

Happy shopping! Xx

SENIMAN COFFEE STUDIO, Ubud

For delicious juices, fresh coffee and lunches this oasis of “quaint and casual” can be found hidden in a small side street between Jl. Hanoman and Jl. Monkey Forest.
.
Seniman Coffee Studio can be likened to a  little “laboratory” of coffee where each cup is Barista brewed then hand poured, while you wait.

Enjoy detox beetroot, ginger, lime juices as well as egg breakfasts and lunchtime Paganini.

Lounge in comfy sofas or homemade rocking chairs.  Settle in with the fast and efficient wifi.

Designer lighting at its best!

INSENS’O, the  lighting store

If you are looking for something authentic and exotic, then the lighting store INSENS’O may be for you.  The blend of classic and modern styles is inspiring.

INSENS’O is an extraordinary lighting store started by Italian born Roberto Tenace.  The story goes that he arrived in Denpasar in 2000 with only $100US in his pocket, fell in love with Bali, became a “lamp maker” (using natural, local materials) – and the rest is history!   He now employs 75 people in his Seminyak workshop.

If you’re updating your lighting at home or redesigning completely, do visit this store for inspiring lighting pieces.  You could seriously create and design a whole room around 1 lighting piece!

Fabulously unique, designer lighting at it’s best!!
