Zen. Soothing. Mystical. Meditative. All the most serene words in the world couldn’t begin to describe the effect of Asia’s most beautiful interiors. Whether it’s a temple in Vietnam, a coffee plantation in Java, or a Tadao Ando–designed house in Japan, each interior chosen for this book is remarkable not only for its aesthetics but for its spirit.

The book is “clothed” in a curry-colored silk-like fabric adorned with chrysanthemum flowers. It features more than 50 locations in Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, and Japan, with highlights including holy temples and Buddhist monasteries, luxurious hotels and charming guest houses, houses designed by Shigeru Ban, Kengo Kuma, and Tadao Ando, and Balinese bamboo architecture.
