When it came time for Art Director Richard Jensen to decorate the pool and patio areas for Season 1 of Love Island, CBS' sizzling summer matchmaking show, he followed one guiding principle: "Would cool, young, sexy people be excited to hang out here?"

The answer, of course, was a resounding yes. Jensen pulled from such designers as Jonathan Adler and textile artist James Dunlop to create a Fiji-based set that was as stunning as the single Islanders themselves.

To get the look at home, Jensen suggests mixing different shapes or materials to give your space a designer feel. "And don't forget the outdoors can be used day and night, so lighting is important," he says. "Fairy lights on a large tree or shrub and a fire pit instantly add glamour."
