The story of Trinity Gardens
We came to Bali in the beginning of 2013, in a phase of transition where our senses and spirits were wide open to receive and give and be inspiration, community and creativity...
It did not take long (there were tears of awe already in the taxi on the way from the airport) for us to come to love this island and its many multidimensional circles of ritual, sensuality and beauty. The soft jungle breeze on our skin, the gentle kindness of the people, the scent of flowers and incense always filling the air and the pure creative potential that literally is part of the very air that is breathed here.
As we love the creative process of houses; structures, shapes, design and interior we were very soon smooched into the embrace of all the intricate details of antiques and pieces of beauty we found on the random street corner or tucked away in backyards.
It is hard to believe today when we look at this little village, that all of it came about in an unplanned spontanous kind of way - like childrens play. One inspired step at a time, one wild idea leading to a next movement; a magic door finding its place on a facade, another statue finding its pillar to stand on or another pod of flowers being planted.
We threw ourselves into the creative flow of it all, much of the time like kids and other times as crazy irresponsible mad ones for sure. It was so much fun, every step of it, as all our combined experiences, knowledge and imaginations where poured into the ride.
On a personal level this project took us to edges of expansion we had not visited before and some nights while viewing the ongoing creation we could not but laugh out loud, or pull our hair hard - finding both parts being important inputs to the birth of it all. Like a light and a darkness both contributing to the blast of it all.
Many of our guests have said they feel a very specific quality of creative inspiration here; an experience of anything and everything being possible. It has been with a sense of unexpected wonder that we have realized, again and again, that the way we allowed all this to come about actually made a space come alive which gives others the same experience we had creating this world of Trinity Gardens.
We hope you will love it as much as we loved creating it,
