While a getaway to Montego Bay might not be in your budget, there is a way to bring the island vibes into your home and make your bedroom look like it's steps away from a white-sand beach. To start small, prioritize natural light in the space and emphasize soft lighting in your lamps and overhead lighting, then bring in some white or neutral linens and an excess of matching pillows. Add some dark wood elements to bring out the contrast — like a headboard, table, or accessories — and bingo, you’ve got a resort feel right there in your home. Sure, it may not be close to the blue waters of Jamaica, but it just might feel like it is.

It's the perfect way to bring an "earthy, modern aesthetic" into your humble abode and adds a bit of weight to your table that will leave your food looking just as pretty as your centerpiece.
