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 beautiful garden on a rubber plantation in Sri Lanka, or a private holiday villa in Thailand, each spot chosen for this book is remarkable not only for its aesthetics but for its spirit.
The book is “clothed” in a bright orange silk-like fabric, the same color used for Thai monks’ robes, and patterned with flying Garuda birds. It features 48 locations across Tibet, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Singapore, and Malaysia, with highlights including traditional Burmese stilt houses, a minimalist villa in Cambodia, a rice barge in Thailand, and a breathtaking garden designed by Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa.
