Reader’s home – Ely’s light-filled villa in Bali

Posted on Fri, 4 Oct 2013 by KiM

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


wooden panel over the sink i like more than tile now

I turned the aluminium motif-relief cups to hide unbeautifullies of this lamp

folk woven Bali rice-field-men hats and plates for fruits and offerings

Gordei’s office and small in-house garden

Gordei+Elina=LOVE! – wooden carving panels are for clothes not to be in the mold
