Daily Dose: 8-24

I know I post pictures and write about Italy on this blog fairly often but the slideshow of screenshots from the movie Eat, Pray, Love posted on Elle Decor are just too good not to highlight.  As someone who’s read the book and seen the movie (yes, I’m a little ashamed to admit that) both have their highs and lows.  The book struck me as a little repetitive and immature but relatable and interesting (particularly the tidbits on meditation and the history of yoga), and the movie was slightly too long and a little slow-paced but very beautiful and well done.  Bill Groom, the production designer hits the nail on the head when he says:

Eat, Pray, Love was shot on location in four countries, with palettes inspired by earth, air, fire, and water. “We scouted Bali first,” says production designer Bill Groom. “It became clear that you’d never get away from the sense of water.” After that, the other settings came vividly to life: a bohemian New York filled with an earthy sense of style; an Italy of open windows and curtains billowing in the breeze; and an India rich in smoldering reds and orange.

The movie truly allowed the countries to play as big of a role as the characters in the film and that made it all so much more enjoyable.  Of course Bali was my favorite and now I cannot wait to take my own mandatory twenty-something backpacking trip through Southeast Asia.
