Truly Asia..

Bensley Design Studio, focused on landscape, interiors and architecture, has executed multiple projects in Asia, primarily in the South East Asian countries.

Bill, the man behind BDS and a dedicated Asian-phile, has traveled extensively around the region, and continues to study and adapt his work to the unique characteristics and cultures of these countries


Presenting selected snapshots of the design studio's work in the residential space:


Aqua lovers - this one is for you!

Imagine your morning cuppa or evening chai in this gazebo..

Quite like how three different light 'forms' play in this room - Sunlight, gentle glow from the candles and light from the chandelier


Handy oars...you never know when you might need to row a boat in your dream!



Chuck your food processor out! Time to grind and mince and roll in these stone urns...


Dainty dressing corner


The colorful table and the alfresco setting reminds me of summer vacations...



Indian influence seen in the furniture



Mmm...love the color and texture combinations here


Isn't the color combination eye catching? As is the shape of these cushions


Where do I start? The door, and the color of the door, the window frame, the texture of the pot, the profusion of colorful flowers against the stone wall...just perfect!



Quick glimpses of beautiful interiors



Mr.Bull - looks like you have been sitting still for too long! The elephants, with very typical Asian umbrellas - this one is for Courtney


The horse rider almost seems alive in this lilac setting!


Wooden statue, mini throne and wooden dragons at loggerheads!

You are welcome Courtney! :)Elephants are considered one of the major icons in Asian traditions and crafts, so you will see them everywhere..

I think moving to India is such a good idea Jessica :-)
