About the owners
The Orchard House has been the family home of Charles and Luli Orchard, two of Bali’s leading stylists, for the last 15 years. Following the owners’ recent move from Bali to the UK their beautiful home has now become available for others to enjoy as a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience.
Charles Orchard, a British born art consultant, book and magazine publisher, and furniture designer, moved to Asia 30 years ago. He lived initially in Hong Kong, and then in Myanmar, and he fell in love with South-East Asia.
Charles returned to England for a two year period during which he not only bought and published the Royal Geographical magazine, but also met and married Luli, a fashion editor at the Saturday Telegraph and writer for Condé Naste Tatler.
Charles and Luli moved to Bali in 2002 to be closer to Charles’ furniture manufacturing sources. The couple originally rented The Orchard House while searching for land to buy and build on, but decided that they loved the villa and its central Seminyak location so much that they would purchase the house for themselves.
Over the years more rooms have been added to The Orchard House to make it the five-bedroom home it is today. And with Charles’ striking furniture featuring strongly throughout the house, they have made it very much their own.
Although the Orchard House’s architectural style is reminiscent of a European country home, its interiors include artworks from around the globe. The family spend a lot of time in South Africa where two of Charles and Luli’s three children were born, and hence there is a noticeable African influence amongst their collection.
Charles continues to run iBal designs and works with major hotel and resorts worldwide such as Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Alila and Kempinski. He has also published a range of photographic coffee table books including ‘Bali Discovery’. Luli still writes for different publications.
