Yes it’s that time of year again. A cast of super attractive guys and girls strutting around a beautiful Spanish Villa for the chance to find love (or an extra few thousand instagram followers). While most viewers have probably been focusing on the people, I’ve been looking at the neon décor of the Love Island villa.
You can’t deny that the decor is sunny, bright and really gets you in the mood for summer. Neon accessories, rattan furniture and beach party vibes are key to the Love Island trend, and with these products, you can transform your living space into a summery Spanish villa that will make heads turn. If neon shades aren’t really your thing, you can still use the tips below to prepare for summer, just use a softer colour palette.
1.Add Pops Of Colour With Neon Signs
Neon signs always seem to pop up at this time of year. While I wouldn’t recommend decorating your home or garden with the words ‘lit’ or ‘banging’, you could get a touch of the villa vibes by adding some neon lights featuring relevant words to your garden wall or living room wall. For example, Olivia Silk (the famous blogger behind ‘Lust Living‘) has a neon sign that says ‘Lust’ on her living room wall. Amazon actually sells waterproof LED flexible strip lights that you can weave into your own sign.
2. Set The Mood With Fairy Lights
Twinkly lights are a signature of the Love Island villa. They have been strung across the garden in all directions to create a romantic atmosphere and resemble the night sky. You can create the same look in your own garden by hanging festoon lights up or even wrapping them around your tree trunks.
3. Gather Around The Fire Pit
If you watch Love Island, you’ll know the firepit is where all the drama and awkward recouplings go down. Despite this, the firepit and curved bench seating corner is actually a really cosy area. If you want to create a relaxing, romantic corner in your garden this summer, a firepit is an ideal solution. Let’s just leave the drama to the islanders, shall we?
4. Pile Up The Colourful Cushions
Adding bold cushions to your home is probably the easiest and cheapest way to bring the Love Island Villa to you this summer. Not only do they look really fun and vibrant, they also add comfort. Imagine sinking into a big pile of velvet cushions on your bed or sofa in the evenings.
5. Lounge Around On Colourful Bean Bags
The garden and pool looks similar to recent years but has now been decorated with colourful beanbags. These bean bags really help to liven up the villa grounds and make it feel a lot more fun. This would be a great way to liven up your garden at home.
6. Add Pops Of Colour With Piped Bedding
The beds have been stylishly kitted out with bedding from River Island, with the pink piping adding to the bold white, pink, blue and yellow colour scheme. The neon pink piping on the bedding helps to pick out the pink edge of the headboard as well as the pink tones in the artwork.

If this guide isn’t enough for you, you might be interested to know that you can hire the villa used for Casa Amor for your summer holiday! It costs between £4,572 to £8,128 per week for you and your friends.
What do you think of the villa this year? It’s certainly more bright and colourful than last year, and there seem to be way more cushions too. I did think the Islanders were a bit boring at the start of the series, but Casa Amor has made it a lot more interesting. Who are you rooting for this year? Let me know in the comments.
