Ibizan Styling Steals: I’ve just been on a holiday and have brought back some Home and Garden Ibiza Styling Ideas. Having visited a luxury villa, boutique hotel and one of Ibiza’s famous clubs, I’ve compiled a list of sunny Home and Garden Ibiza Styling Ideas to share with you.
Es Cucons Hotel: Natural Woven Basket With Flowers
Can Frare Villa: Home and Garden Ibiza Styling Ideas
Can Frare is a Luxury Villa in Ibiza. This ancient finca (farmhouse) has been owned by the same family for over 200 years. The historic building has been lovingly restored into a luxurious rental property which sleeps up to 12 guests. With a fabulous infinity swimming pool and lovely landscaped outside space, this is a stunning villa.

I was lucky enough to get a guided tour of the Can Frare Villa and took a few pictures so I could share some Ibizan styling tips with you. I’ll start with the house which has the most beautiful bathrooms. If you have a large bathroom to share with your partner, these natural sheer drapes and curtains are a great way to add a touch of privacy. With a polished concrete floor, marble basins and wooden beams on the ceiling, the décor is simply, rustic, light and airy.
Can Frare Villa: Beautiful Bathroom
The bedrooms were minimal with white washed walls and polished concrete floors which looked like real marble. Most of the rooms had four poster wooden beds dressed in neutral colour linen. The decorative touches included straw hats hung on the wall and historic photographs of the family in vintage frames.

With landscaped gardens and heaps of external space, there were plenty of welcoming sofas and beds dotted around should you wish to lie down and relax in the sun. Colourful cushions and cotton Hammam throws were used to cheer up outdoor sofas. This is an easy style tip to steal, especially if your garden sofa needs a little attention.

Es Cucons Hotel: Garden Ibiza Styling Ideas
We visited the elegant Es Cucons Hotel for coffee which was a treat. This farmhouse was built in 1652 and restored to become a hotel for couples and families. You can book beauty therapies, have a private yoga lesson and dine at the restaurant.
Es Cucons Hotel: Cute Flower Bottles in Trees
A few of the styling steals you could try in your own garden include stringing glass bottles to trees with cute flowers inside. Using natural woven baskets to display flowers which could be dried or fresh. Hang rattan shades with frayed ends to cover outdoor lighting.

Pikes Hotel, Bar and Club: Garden Ibiza Styling Ideas
We popped along to Pikes Hotel one evening for drinks on the terrace and had a snoop around. Pikes is an iconic Ibizan haunt located in the San Antonio hills which was set up by Tony Pike in the late seventies. The swimming pool was used to film the Club Tropicana video by Wham. Freddie Mercury, Grace Jones and other legends have stayed and partied hard there. Club Tropicana said the drinks were free, they weren’t on our visit, it’s a tad expensive but worth it just to see the pool where Wham frolicked.
Pikes Hotel: Red Crocodile or Alligator (not sure which)
The styling at Pikes is eccentric, a hedonistic cocktail of Alice in Wonderland meets Portmeirion meets your wildest fantasies. You will see plenty of beds outside on terraces and patios, ready for you to lie down and think of Ibiza. If you’ve got an old metal bed or wooden frame bedstead just place it under a covered structure and you can pretend, you’re on holiday.
Pikes Hotel: Outdoor Beds
Other styling tips from Pikes include curiosities such as a red painted giant crocodile (not a real one). Seek out your own curious items from car boot sales and spray paint them. If you want to be adventurous, cut out shapes like the Mad Hatters hat from Alice in Wonderland. I noticed that Rory Dobner had painted some eccentric wall murals and that his letter tiles had also been featured to spell out Ibiza House Rocks as you entered the Pike empire. You can use old tiles and paint on those if you’re feeling arty.

I hope these ideas will help you to create a lovely Ibizan style sanctuary in your own home and garden. If not, just book tickets and head for the Island instead. Happy days!
