Create A Home Inspired by Eat, Pray, Love With these 5 Must-Haves

Transform your space into a resort-like dream home inspired by Bali


If you've seen Eat, Pray, Love, I'm guessing that you've included backpacking on your bucket list. There are far too many places featured in the film, but on top of my list would have to be Bali. The tropical getaway looks inviting and serene—a perfect hideaway for a life-changing trip. It also has breathtaking beaches and iconic temples that you wouldn't want to miss!

It can be quite easy for us to create a calming haven that's reminiscent of Bali. A lot of stores in the metro have pieces that can complete the resort vibe that we want to achieve. Here are five pieces that can help you get started:
