Swimming in the jungle

Did anyone get a memo saying we had to come back from Bali? (Tuesday's post here.) I know I didn't so I'm sitting pool side at Jungle Fish, the no beach ... beach club in Ubud. Hurry up and join me. I'm already on my second drink.

Tuesday is cancelled

Did you get the memo? Tuesday is cancelled. No work, no family responsibilities, no problem! Instead we are meeting up for drinks by the pool at the Gravity hotel in Bali. Maybe they'll cancel Wednesday and Thursday as well.

Island House 

Pardon me please. I know it's only Tuesday. I know I shouldn't feel the need for a virtual getaway this early in the week. I should at least make it to hump day but I can't. I wish I could escape for real to this beautiful house right on the beach. Simple luxury, an amazing location on the isolated Indonesian island of Gili Meno just a fast boat from Bali, no cares or worries except for sand between the toes. Crusoe House via The Island Houses.

Bali escape

I had planned this virtual Bali escape for days then this morning I heard the news that flights to the Indonesian island had been suspended due to volcanic ash clouds off shore. Oh no! We were all going to be lolling by the pool by the time this post went live. Fortunately we aren't actually going. The volcano won't actually spoil our trip. This is a virtual getaway after all. We can still plunge in the pool, shower outdoors and languidly lounge on all those built-in benches. Welcome to your Tuesday escape ... Fella Villas.

Reader's home - Ely's light-filled villa in Bali

Ely Gordeeva is an architect and decorator and painter from Russia now residing in the most wonderful villa in Ubud, Bali. Ely designed her Balinese home and it's filled with light, warmth and a bit of whimsy - the DIY light fixture over the dining table is so cute! (Do you think she'd want to switch places over the winter??!!)

High roof saves the cool air inside the house - the floor is gipsum - woven mat of palm leaf in living room

to have more light in the room I decided not to make cabinets under the countertop - love this colourful woven dining chairs from Java
