Love Island Lighting – Get the Look!
We take a look at the different lighting used in the Love Island villa and how you can recreate this in your home.
Fairy Lights and Festoon Lighting
First off outside is draped in fairy lights, these are strung across from building to building, to trees and pillars. These are a great way to light an area, setting the mood and beautiful lighting effects. These can be bought cheaply and easily installed, the long lengths that they come in make it a great way to easily and quickly add lights to your garden.

Another common lighting theme in the villa are strip lights, blue and red lighting stirs that run around in the house as well as the garden.
You can create this in your home by using the Philips hue light strip, or buying a single light strip that works independently. Outside in the garden these look great along pathways, around decking as you an see in the picture above, around seating areas or on steps. Inside these can be used on stairs, around units or under the kitchen unit foot baseboard.
Using the Philips hue system allows you co easily change the colours depending on your mood or the style of room, ideal for setting the perfect shade of blue for your room or a bright orange depending on your style.
With the outdoor Hue Lightstrip you can install this around your decking, balcony balustrades or along garden borders.
Create focal points in your garden be it certain platens or trees, shining light up a wall or pointing down at a path, the Hue Lily spotlights are a great way to do this. They can be bought as a set of 3 and can be changed to any color as well as different whites.
Using these in your garden are a great way to create different colors within different areas of borders, can be placed in pots or swing up at them. As they work with Hue you can combine these to match the colors of your light strips and other outdoor Hue lights.
Light Balls and Domes
Through out the villa garden and inside too there are lots of these light balls, circular balls that light up, some are different colours but outside they are white balls that glow in the evening. Philips Hue have the Philips bloom, this is a ball that is sliced in half, however you could use a philips hue bulb in a ball lighting unit.
Although not Hue compatible this light dome is waterproof and designed for outdoor use, it also comes with a small remote allowing you to change the color of it too.
Using these different styles can add a touch of luxury to your home, lighting is so important and a great way to create different moods in your home, from party mode, romantic evenings, or just bright and light while you cook or the kids do their homework.
As well as lighting the Love Island Villa is full of brightly coloured outdoor bean bags, bright throws and of course the fire pit.
