Lusting over Love Island’s interiors? Here’s how to get the look at home

The hit series’ parade of buff twenty-somethings are all over each other, but Gabrielle Fagan’s only got eyes for the show’s decor.
Tear your eyes away from the perma-tanned, ultra-toned singletons on TV’s Love Island for just a second, and you’ll notice the other star of the show this year... the villa in Majorca, where the dramas and blossoming (or bombing) romances are being played out.
“The most talked about reality TV show is back on our screens, but aside from the ever-changing couples and dramatic showdowns, Love Island’s also creating a talking point when it comes to inspirational interiors,” says Kasia Wiktorowicz, marketing communications manager for paint specialists, Valspar.
“The villa’s undergone a refresh for this year’s series, but returns with its staple pops of bright colours and tongue-in-cheek graphics. There’s a dominant colour theme of blue, pink and orange to offset the bright white walls of the holiday home, with a new staircase featuring the zonal paint trend.”
Inspired? Here’s how to transform your home into a sizzling hotspot for summer (love-triangles optional)...

“The scheme reflects the villa’s Mediterranean setting, and these shades together create a cool, calming atmosphere with a touch of fun - just what’s needed with so many couples living under one roof!” says Wiktorowicz.
Get into the love zone
This is the area for truly chilling, with a turquoise blue carpet mimicking the pool, and an inside/outside feel thanks to the AstroTurf panels on the walls. Ample seating is a must for snuggling, and a big corner sofa and units will ensure there are enough seats for getting cosy - or keeping your distance if you’re now wowed by someone’s charms.
Put passion into the patio
The pool and the patio are the settings for a parade of pecs and abs as the Love Island hopefuls strut their stuff, and the only kit that’s really needed is sofas, loungers and bean bags.
Plastered on the walls throughout the villa are memorable phrases from last year’s series, alongside stuff the islanders are likely to say as they banter. If you’re not up on Love Island lingo, from ‘melt’ (an idiot) to ‘grafting’ (working hard to get someone to like you), simply spell out your message with a straightforward ‘Love’ sign!
