As the borders are closed and business owners cannot fly in to organise their campaigns, it has now become more and more common for brands to put their trust in me to direct, produce and shoot their products.
And this was the case of Bali Bungalow. This was my third time shooting for American brand Bali Bungalow. Last time we shot in two locations, Villa Joju in Canggu and Bingin Cliffhouse in Uluwatu. They knew what to expect from me and trust me 100% to deliver them a killer campaign.
For the location, they chose the stunning Villa Massilia. An amazing backdrop to their expanding range. Bali Bungalow started by producing mostly cushions and throws. But within a year, the brand has evolved immensely. This time the majority of their products were chairs, benches, stools, kitchen stools and even a lounger.
Their new range is absolutely stunning and shows how much Bali Bungalow has grown and matured as a brand.
With the help of Chelsey from Somewhere Concepts, we worked across two of the villas from the Villa Massilia Complex. The furniture couldn’t have fitted any better at the villas. In some cases, we were even thinking some of the furniture should be replaced with Bali Bungalow’s.
Some of my favourite pieces were the leather lounger and the white leather interlaced chairs. Take a look and let me know if you like them too!
