You have not given us anything much to go on. There are many orchids that can do well indoors; Phalaenopsis, Paphiopedilums, Oncidiums, some Cattleyas, Dendrobiums etc.
I would suggest a visit to the American Orchid Society web page @www.aos.org. There under the Membership window I think, you can find 'culture sheets' which mention the very basic conditions required by several major types of orchids. Figure out exactly you can provide as year round conditions AND then select the orchids that fit your conditions.

Those conditions would include:
Light- how much sunlight could you provide.
Temperature-what are the year round temperatures inside the home.
Water and water quality.
Other things such as humidity, air movement, fertilizer are all very controllable.
But if you want to grow cooler growing orchids yet your home never goes below 70 degrees, that's a problem.
Once you get an idea of what your conditions are, we can advise you further. Growing orchids is nothing like growing houseplants!!

Orchids make great houseplants, but they need certain conditions. So first, you have to find out what type of orchid you have, what growing conditions that type needs, and what conditions you can offer indoors that might work.
I see you are in Indonesia! Do you have orchids outdoors?
Can you post pictures of the plants you want to grow?
This is a great place to find advice, we just need more information.
