Missing Love Island? Here’s how to recreate the look in your own home


Another series of Love Island, the emotional rollercoaster that is ITV’s hit show of the summer, has come to and end, with the cast arriving back in the UK today. 

We’ve had highs, lows, and, along the way, serious Majorca villa envy to contend with. 

This year’s villa had a dramatic makeover just before the contestants moved in, with a big step away from pinks and blues galore (2018) towards the sunshine yellows and catchprases of ‘Yass Queen’, ‘boujee’ or ‘bye Felicia’ in neon lights on walls. 

Night after night, the fun and frivolity was played out against the colourful backdrop of brightly-coloured accessories and Balearic island style.

If the show’s dramatic finale has you hankering after the hot summer vibe, we’ve sourced the products that will give your home some Love Island villa magic. 

So throw on your two piece and grab your water bottle – it’s time to get loved up (with homewares).

Concrete propane fire pit

Around the firepit (from home) was where we held our breath to see who would be coupled off – and who would have to say goodbye to the Love Islanders. 

Available in either black or grey, this fire pit is ideal for recreating the drama on your own terms at home.
