Celebrity Homes: David Bowie’s Balinese inspired Villa

Ok, this may not be new but it’s certainly one of the most spectacular celebrity homes of all time! This week we give you a guided tour through David Bowie and Iman’s balinese-inspired villa in the Mustique.

The luxury estate was featured in Architectural Digest back in 1992, a time when the balinese style wasn’t  in at all. The Balinese inspired villa, both in architecture and spirituality, was conceived by architect Arne Hasselqvist. The interiors were created by  Robert J. Litwiller & Linda Garland, and the fantastic gardens  designed by landscape designer Michael White. The harmony felt in every single detail inside is so soothing!

Different moods were created throughout the luxury estate. Every corner is a surprise, like, for exemple, the formal European living room. Interior designer Linda Garland created the 19 th-century-style furnishings found in this room. We can also see a set of circa 1825 engravings of the pagodas of Pagan and Rangoon and a circa 1850 crystal oil chandelier, found in London.

The gardens are phenomenal! The Indonesian influences, complete with green water, waterlilies, tropical grass and scattered stones, provide a truly relaxing experience.

In the master bedroom, a collection of 19 th-century Egyptian Revival furnitures is a beautiful surprise indeed. The floors are covered with antique lacquered rattan matting.

  • The high ceilings and clean lines are two of the most recognizable characteristics of Marbella's luxury, but LUXXU took it a step further by combining raw and fine materials and featuring marble floors and walls to create the perfect contrast with the simple white walls and wooden slabs.
  • Any dining space takes pride in providing a large area for family and friends to enjoy themselves. LUXXU kept this in mind at all times, providing a great view of the outdoor space while furnishing it with the most extraordinary pieces.
  • This spacious master bedroom is an utopian and captivating place to begin a brand new day. The neutrals are kept, but dark wood is given more emphasis to create even more contrast than usual to ensure the atmosphere is relaxing and acts as a soothing mechanism.

  • When you enter a living room and immediately feel more calm and relaxed, you know it has served its purpose. The neutral and soft color palette was chosen to provide the serenity we all need when arriving home. The Thomson Sofa is readily available to sit on its soft leather and velvet, which give a luxurious and sensual touch alongside the Galea Armchairs, with their elegant silhouettes, bringing back an ancient inspiration that fits well within Marbella's history.
