On your next trip to Bali, skip Seminyak and spend some time in beachside Canggu. This lazily sprawling beachside neighbourhood serves famous surf spot Old Man's and a growing community of expat villa owners and surf tourists in quiet streets hanging right angles around rice paddies. There is not much in the way of shopping, but should you have an afternoon to while away when there is no surf, make your way inland from Old Man's along Raya Batu Bolong and you will discover Horn. And a fantastic discovery it is...

New Zealander Anita Horn has curated her store with eclectic stylised randomness. The moody chocolate walls and chic green-white-and-black mosaic tiled floor provide an addictive backdrop for a leisurely stroll through Anita's world.  The vibe is a that of colonial Indonesia, mixed with a tad of Africa, with rugs and curios from Argentina and Mexico, colourful Moroccan glasses, vintage album covers, books and prints from India and South America. Lush cushions of all shapes and sizes beg to be picked up, one even more richly tapestried or printed than the next. Other random objects are vintage lamps, Warhol-esque paintings covering the high walls, a couple of deer, beautifully re upholstered furniture and all manner of ceramic statuettes...

As for wearables, Horn stocks Bali brands not found easily elsewhere such as Natasha, Trespassers of Leningrad, Miss Milne, Angel is Love, Enki sunglasses and colourful men's T shirts from Yokii. I fell in love with a blue and white striped Natasha maxi dress, and it came in a cute Horn canvas tote, bonus! A rainy afternoon well spent.
