Tropical Villa In Thailand Based On An Ancient System Of Architecture

Tropical Villa In Thailand Based On An Ancient System Of Architecture

Luxury villa in Thailand, based on an ancient architectural principles. An airy interior with gorgeous architectural features, natural materials & nature views.

Located on the small tropical island of Samui, Thailand, this extraordinary villa is known as the Vastu Villa project - the first of its kind to be designed according to vedic knowledge, Vastu Shastra. For those not familiar with the traditional Hindu system of architecture, Vastu Shastra literally translates to ‘science of architecture’. It includes everything from design principles to spatial geometry, and integrates architecture with nature, ancient beliefs, directional alignments and symmetry. Many of these aspects become evident in this magnificent home tour. Sweeping architectural features, natural materials and wide stretching reveals of stunning nature views give this home design a terrifically tropical flavour that is hard to resist.


A tropical scene forms the backdrop to this magnificent living room in Thailand, leaving absolutely no requirement for fancy wallpapers! A leafy indoor plant brings a touch of the tropical inside of the living area, between a light L-shaped couch and a swing chair. A cane hanging lounge chair takes up the other side of the furniture layout, at the edge of an overlapping rug arrangement.



Sitting low against the rugs, the rattan pouf is a wonderfully textural piece. The base of the sofa is solid wood beneath the light seat cushions, to bring the modern piece back in line with nature.



A live edge coffee table adds more rustic vibe to the lounge. Curvaceous architectural fins sweep into view along the open plan living room, which mark the entry point to a central staircase.



Dropped ceiling panels echo the smooth geometry of the curved fins. Wooden ceiling planks provide crisp contrast behind the white dropped volumes.



Frosted glass panels provide symmetry on the tv wall, making light reflective columns up either side of the screen and media cabinet.



The cane accent chair is perhaps the best seat in the lounge – due to its prime position facing out to the tropics.



The dining room pendant light is a bell shaped rattan one, which really anchors the eating area in place in the spacious open plan room.



Rattan dining chairs seat eight around a rustic meets modern dining table.



The sunlight and green views through the vast surrounding windows give the dining room a sunny al fresco feel.



The dining set sits on an Aztec rug island. A buddha statue meditates peacefully by enormous sliding patio doors.



The stairwell divides the the lounge and kitchen diner from one another, which is partially screened from the rooms on either side by the sweeping architectural fins.



The rustic spiral staircase design is accessorised at the bottom with a pair of rattan baskets that can be used as ‘catch alls’ to keep the downstairs looking clear and peaceful. A rattan planter also rests at the bottom of the stairs, with a plant peering into a golden wall mirror.



White and wood kitchens provide the perfect balance of freshness and warmth, which is exactly the case in this one here. Wood wall cupboards, open kitchen shelves and dining peninsula cladding all work to break up the cold gloss white units.



Wood and metal kitchen bar stools line up along the dining peninsula. Three glass pendant lights create a cosy glow above the bar stools, their illumination amplified by an attractive wall mirror. On the other side of the kitchen, a recessed arch has been fitted with shelves and wooden cabinets to hold more decorative kitchen items on display.



The master bedroom is an impressive room with an imposing bed. A gathered canopy hangs from a timber frame. A wooden accent wall provides a dark backdrop behind the clean white fabric.



A wood ceiling fan whirrs in the tropical heat.



Tree stump bedside tables are tucked beneath low hanging rattan light shades. A glass vase holds a sprig of green down at floor level. A rattan planter holds an indoor plant by a swing chair in the window.



The bedroom is blessed with panoramic views on two sides. A vanity table area sits by the second window, under a round vanity mirror. If you should ever tire of the amazing views, a flat screen tv is mounted to the wall by the makeup table.



Stunning blue tiles pattern a modest sized bathroom. If the tiles weren’t enough of a feature, the vanity also holds an eye-catching unique sink, with a tactile rippled stone surface.



The same beautiful blue tiles back the shower enclosure and cover its floor.



A second bathroom design exhibits another attractively tiled shower cubicle. Thin timber beams criss cross the ceiling, continuing the nature theme all the way to the top. A wood vanity table, small side table and shower tray fascia add to the wooden accents.



Rattan bedroom pendant lights hang in front of another wood clad bedroom feature wall, this time framing a four poster bed design.



A sheer runner drapes across the top of the bed frame.



A rattan chair with matching footstool and a small side table have been placed in a sunny window spot.



Beach trinkets dress the bedside table.



An illuminated wood mirror has a Thai beach meets Hollywood look.



A decorative wall mirror amplifies the chic shower tiles.



Bathroom toiletries are held in a laid-back leaning shelf tower.



Louvre doors cover up a couple of closets in a dedicated dressing room.



The rest of the wardrobe is exposed on hanging rails and open garment shelves.



Wooden wall decor takes the plainess away from white paintwork.
