This stunning home spotted on Country Life is a sunny and carefree approach that sees an infusion of exotic colors, local architecture and exuberant style, living up to its spectacular Balinese location. Slim-line, colorful, custom-made sun loungers hint at the creative minds of homeowners Valentina Audrito and Abhishake ‘Abhi’ Kumbhat who have created this lusciously tropical, contemporary home called Lalaland. Designed as open plan living, Lalaland was originally two Javanese joglos that were reworked and upgraded to create an imaginative family home. The well-planned house allows a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors, perfect for entertaining.
