If you love chart topping reads, or just enjoy a good trip to the movies, chances are you’ve seen or read Eat Pray Love. Two of the inspiring places that Elizabeth Gilbert (played by Julia Roberts) visits are India and Bali, Indonesia. Both countries have amazing design influences that fit perfectly with Summer 2011’s style, but that will be able to stand the test of time in your space. Take inspiration from this pictures from the movie and from this interior from Bali incorporate the ease, freshness, and style from the story into your home.

Scene with Julia Roberts from Eat, Pray, Love

In this scene, Roberts/Gilbert is surrounded by natural textures that vary slightly in color but culminate into a cohesive, relaxed environment.

In the picture above, pay attention to the fibers around Roberts. Muted blues in her seat and the pillow behind her combine with light natural shades, along with the darker hues of the lamp’s post. Below, a Balinese interior also mixes natural hues in wood and rugs:

In this space, various shades and textures of wood and natural fibers mix together to form an oasis.

You can create a natural oasis like those in these two photos in your home by installing hardwood from Ambassador Floor Company. To create the same eclectic mix of textures, incorporate natural toned rugs and carpeting from the store, or use a different but complementary shade of natural tones in your decor.
