Start With a Blank Canvas

The easiest way to achieve a bright and breezy look is with a crisp white base. Nothing beats the sun bouncing off bright white, it’s the perfect backdrop for any villa interior. It’ll add instant brightness and space to your home, and you’ll find it’ll open up even the most modest of spaces. If your walls aren’t a blank canvas don’t fret, focus on bringing crisp white linens or furniture in to create your base.

Don’t Forget a Pop of Color


With all this light and lofty space, you’re going to need some color. And the brighter and bolder the better. Splash your favorite shades around with pillows, throws and accessories and don’t worry about clashing. These pops of color will contrast beautifully with your clean and crisp base and add some personality where you want it most. Focus on bright shades to really make the room pop.

Easy Breezy Style

Villas are all about ease so take a relaxed approach when it comes to decorating and try not to overdo or overthink. Think laid-back draping and perfectly-imperfect placements. Don’t be afraid to curate an eclectic mix; the whole idea is to take a step back from coordination and don’t stress about matching everything so be inspired by the easy-going nature of far-flung destinations and embrace Riviera living.

If you’re not blessed with tropical climates, it’s important to keep your home comforts nearby. Don’t be afraid to artfully drape a few throws and cozy pillows to bring the snuggle factor. Go for bright colors, playful prints, and unique textures to keep the tropical vibe at the heart of your scheme. This way you can have all the fun and style of a summer getaway, even if the weather outside isn’t agreeing with you.
