Outdoor Living in Bali

The New York Times 11.12.08

Would you live 59-feet off the jungle floor, Swiss-Family-Robinson-style in an Indonesian tree house? The Hardy family does. John and Cynthia Hardy wanted to maximize their outdoor living experience and had a 110-foot long, single story home built from tropical hardwood in the trees of the Ayung River valley...

The view! The swing!
The massive kitchen in the trees.

We love the saffron and burgandy color palette — and who thought there would be egg chairs in the trees? And the swing! Read the full story of the Hardy's home and new work running their ecologically friendly International School: In Bali, a Home Nestled Among Rice Paddies and Trees and all the pictures in the slideshow.
