Wall Art

Oversized wall art adds the drama of a resort at an affordable price tag. For a bold statement, place a large print above the bed or in any living space.

Give your walls the island treatment

Wallpaper is a great, long-lasting option for a feature wall. Add depth to your bedroom with tropical wallpaper and soak up the island bungalow vibes!

Large Houseplants

Tall indoor plants in statement pots and planters will have your home feeling like a tropical oasis. So bring in a palm or two and get that summer feeling all year round.

Sheer white curtains

This Parisian-penthouse detail is a lightweight feature that adds a sultry softness to any room, offering privacy while allowing natural light to flood into the room with a resort-style flair.

Zoned Outdoor Spaces

Create serene, suite-style living with separate entertaining spaces that allow organic movement indoors and outdoors – go wherever the night takes you!

Wicker Furniture

Wicker tables and chairs are perfect for creating a beachy vibe and are the pinnacle of relaxation. They add just the right touch to a hot, Fijian resort-inspired night with friends. Of course, it also helps that they’re easy to move and clean!
