Holy temples to posh hotels: exceptional interiors from Indonesia to Japan Zen. Soothing. Mystical. Meditative. All the most serene words in the world couldn't begin to describe the effect of Asia's most beautiful interiors. Whether it's a monastery in Tibet, a coffee plantation in Java, or a Tadao Ando-designed house in Japan, each interior chosen for this book is remarkable not only for its aesthetics but for its spirit. The book is ?clothed? in a silk-like curry-colored fabric adorned with chrysanthemum flowers. These interiors have what it takes to transport you to a sacred place; breathe deeply, delve in, and be inspired. 51 locations in Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, and Japan Highlights include: ? holy temples and Buddhist monasteries ? posh hotels and charming guest houses ? Balinease bamboo architecture ? Javanese coffee plantations ? modern contemporary houses in Japan designed by Shigeru Ban, Kengo Kuma, and Tadao Ando
