SAME OLD BRAND NEW IN YOGYAKARTA

What's not to love about classic Javanese architecture and interior?!

What’s not to love about classic Javanese architecture and interior?!

Even after countless visits, this special region is one of the places that never cease to inspire me. During my last trip, I decided to explore the hidden treasures of Yogyakarta and I found it in Pakualaman, at the residence of a friend. Since he is an antique collector as well as an art director, it shouldn’t be a surprise that his home will possess a very personal, unique aesthetic. Nevertheless, I was very impressed by this house, even before I stepped a foot inside! It’s actually a newly built house but all the materials are antiques and/or vintage:the door and window frames, even the pillars! And when “advance technology” is added, like the Cap Kunci floor tiles, the vintage-ness of its design is ensured. It’s hard to choose which piece of furniture is my favourite, … because I like everything!

Behind these closed doors... is a homey palace.
