Photos: Anita Jones; Jennifer Soo An exotic makeover can give your house that extra wow factor. You don't even have to travel to the ends of the earth . . . Not everyone comes back from Bali with sunburn and a slightly more urgent approach to the toilet. Many visitors are taken by the Indonesian island's arts and architecture, and try to recreate the look when they get home -- particularly when decorating yards and courtyards. Libby Reid runs Bali Fling, a business that sells island-designed furniture and arts online and from an outlet in Tempe. ''Balinese pieces in their modern state are gorgeous,'' she says. ''The artisans there do great work.'' The business, which Reid says is ''still setting up'', can bring in products made to order, as ''stone can be carved to a specific size''. ''We try to bring in different concepts,'' she says. ''We give people ideas. ''We also run a B&B in Ubud, so people can stay there and we can arrange to take them around. ''We're aiming to get designers and architects buying from us, as well as the general public.'' Other Balinese-themed outlets include Bali Karma in Taren Point, Bali in Profile in Terrey Hills and North Narrabeen's That Bali Shop. Other businesses, such as Export Bali, operate from the island itself. Buyers can shop there and ship home or do everything online. With tacos appearing on every second pub menu, Latin American styles are also popular. Nina Daniels, one of the owners of the two Latin American- and vintage-themed Holy Kitsch shops in Surry Hills and Newtown, says she was attracted to the genre when she was at art school. ''I love the vividness of it all,'' she says. ''I like a lot of colour.'' Now she gets a wide variety of people looking to decorate their homes in Day of the Dead themes. Despite its hipster popularity, Daniels says she gets buyers of all ages looking to use the theme in their homes. ''I suppose I do get a few 'alternative'-type people, but we get both young and old buyers.'' She recommends people wanting to decorate a room in a Santa Fe style use ''lots of small things''. ''Mexicans use lots of small things grouped on walls,'' she says. ''Everything is colourful, too. We have beautiful prints.'' She says images of the Virgin Mary are very popular, as are shrines. ''People often make up their own shrine,'' she says. ''You need one big papier-mache skeleton -- we call them glam rock skeletons -- and some decent- sized skulls. ''Funnily enough, the skulls it uses can be life-affirming.'' Other businesses selling Latin American-themed furniture and art include Rustico Americano, based in Brisbane. Themed rooms and outdoor spaces can be a budget-friendly way to give a home a wow-factor. Other popular national themes include Japanese, French provincial and the ever popular Tuscan. Other businesses try to educate customers who want to adopt a certain style when they decorate a room in a theme. Eastern Antique Furniture in Crows Nest, for example, has a section on Chinese history on its website so buyers can see the context of their purchase.
