Love Island is back on our TV screens, and with it is a whole new villa to take interior inspiration from!
The show now takes place in a brand-new villa in Mallorca, and we can’t get enough of the island-inspired gardens and bright summer colour palette.
Wanting to recreate the villa vibe in your home? Keep reading…
It’s impossible to imagine Love Island without gorgeous gardens clad in foliage and fairy lights, and thankfully this dreamy Mediterranean look is easy to replicate at home!

Light wooden furniture and bright pebbles are key to creating the foundations of your own irresistible island landscape – everything else can be packed up and swapped out as the seasons change.
This eucalyptus wooden sun lounger comes complete with wheels so you can easily follow the sun around your garden, but this cheap and cheerful pack of two brightly coloured sun loungers from Argos is just as sure to hit the spot if you’re pulled for a chat!
If there’s one thing the Love Island interior designers can’t resist, it’s an in-your-face colour palette. Neon cushions and bean bags inject a playful mood to the villa’s outdoor areas, and our top picks from Amazon come in a variety of shades from classic hot pink to tropical aqua – great for recreating the holiday feel without splashing the cash on a hotel!

As the summer day fades to a cosy evening, the Islanders love to gather around the firepit to discover which of them will be leaving the villa forever. While your get-togethers don’t need to be so dramatic (we hope!), this stylish compact fire pit is perfect for late night conversations and can easily be packed away once summer gives way to cold autumn evenings.
Finally, no Love Island villa is complete without metres of fairy lights hanging above the immaculately trimmed lawns. These 5m festoon fairy lights from Dunelm will help create a cosy atmosphere as the sun goes down, and they can be connected to three more packs of lights! Just make sure to light a citronella candle or two to keep pesky flies at bay…

One of the best things about a new build home is being able to put your own stamp on blank canvas from the day you reserve. While a brightly painted wall might not be your type on paper, there are still small ways you can infuse the fun décor of the Love Island villa into your existing style from the day you move in.
From foliage walls to pot plants, there is no shortage of greenery in the Love Island villa. If creating an entire flower wall doesn’t quite fit in your budget, affordable tropical houseplants such as palm plants, monsteras and cacti can still to give your home an island feel. This gold planter from Argos is ideal for filling empty corners and looks almost identical to the ones on display in the villa.

If you’re a renowned serial plant killer, colourful cacti sculptures may be a safer option. They’ve cropped up around the villa this year, but we simply can’t decide which of these designs we want to couple up with – this glossy teal number or this striking hot pink piece!
Elsewhere around the villa, heads have been turned – literally – by unique takes on Michelangelo’s famous sculpture of David. Vibrant busts line the shelves in the living room and this quirky piece with an ice cream cone has seen demand for the cheeky ornament sky rocket online. Don’t want to miss out on the trend? Online retailer Brown and Ginger sell the bust in six vibrant colours, so you can match it perfectly to your existing décor!

The famous Beach Hut with its nautical colour palette and natural materials is easy to emulate, and its laid-back vibe is ideal for rooms such as bedrooms, bathrooms, and conservatories where you go to relax – much like the Islanders after a tiring day of swimming, tanning, and texting.

The distressed shiplap-style wallpaper on display in our Malham show home looks almost identical to the backdrop of the Beach Hut! Simply pair with rattan furniture and linen cushions for an instant island-style interior.
If you love a little bit of vibrancy in your home décor, you’ll have definitely taken notice of the new flirtatious artwork on display in the villa’s bedroom. The disco-esque pop-art is a fun way to add character to a room and is sure to vamp up any teenage bedroom or dressing area. Get the look with this ‘Disco Lips’ print from Redbubble.

It wouldn’t be Love Island without a neon sign (or ten!) to complement the funky artwork around the villa. From love hearts to quirky slogans, there’s no shortage of designs to choose from when taking inspiration from the villa this year. While bespoke pieces can be expensive, this ‘love’ sign from Matalan won’t break the bank, nor will this ‘good vibes’ light from Amazon.

The dome style continues around the villa, with funky coloured glass pendants taking centre stage in the living room and rounded wicker lampshades adding a soft scandi-boho feel to the outdoor kitchen. Keen to get steal the style? IKEA’s JAKOBSBYN pendant glass lamp shade is available in a variety of shades and colours (including pink, obvs!), and this natural rattan-style shade from Dunelm is an almost-exact replica of the ones on display in the villa.

The Islanders are rarely spotted without a drink in hand, and water bottles with your name on are so 2018. That’s why this year, we’ve fallen head over heels for the new official Love Island tropical tumblers! These flamingo and pineapple picnic glasses are perfect for summer and will make you feel like you’re lounging by the pool whatever the (unfortunately British) weather.
