On their home décor website, style authority ELLE has a slideshow of black and white interiors from Manhattan to Brazil, saying “black and white rooms are guaranteed to never go out of style.” The modern kitchens, quaint bathrooms, European farmhouses and Santa Monica celebrity cribs are all “ridiculously fab.” But something is missing.

Villa ISSi is art. Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Budi Pradono from Indonesia,
