Indonesian Simplicity

For their Bali hideaway, Dominique Verdellet, co-owner of Indonesian décor shop Haveli, and her husband, Jean-Marc Lavergne, took inspiration from Java's Dutch colonial houses. Patterned blue-and-white floor tiles, colorful Indonesian painted doors, and brass-accented hanging lanterns give it a subtle ethnic flavor without resorting to pastiche.

Sub-Zero Side-by-Side Fridge
Sub-Zero Side-by-Side Fridge

We have 2 refrigerators, and it is a constant struggle to keep them clean and organized. We love these fridges though! A stainless steel refrigerator-freezer is a great high-tech concession in a low-tech scheme. Sub-Zero uses technology from NASA to keep the air in them purified, so we don’t have to worry too much about mold, bacteria, and viruses on our food. You can often find Jake Cohen, our kitchen assistant, hiding in the corner eating ice cream. Sub-Zero side-by-side fridge, from $8,170 at Sub-Zero
