BACK TO BALI
Susan and Glenn Rothman have traveled the world, so when it came time to redo the master bedroom in their Tudor-style home in Wellesley, they knew where they’d look for inspiration. “We love the serenity and architecture of Southeast Asia,” Susan says. Plus, they were eager to display the artifacts they had brought back. So the couple hired interior designer Laura Meyer of Boston architecture firm Meyer & Meyer to transform the space. The model was Bali’s Amandari resort, with its open-air villas. Meyer, however, achieved the effect with a bamboo ceiling that perfectly echoes the feel of a Balinese pavilion. She incorporated an ancient carved column that the couple had packed away, splitting it lengthwise and using the pieces as the posts for a custom-designed platform bed. A Balinese tapestry was framed and hung over the bed, and throw pillows were made with textiles that Susan had carried home.
