The ideal playlist is one that features all your favourite, un-skippable songs. That can serve both as background music and take centre stage when you crank up the volume.
Sultry soul and camp dance music
The sultry soul of Etta James or Nina Simone always does the trick for us but we also love the 70s vibe of Earth, Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye and The Buggles. Prefer something contemporary? Try James Blake, Black Atlass, Matt Corby, Lianna la Havas or Nick Mulvey.
Scratching on a palm leaf
This brilliant record player from Crosley will instantly create the right mood alongside a colourful collection of indoor and outdoor plants (in hibernation). We’re thinking bougainvillea, winter heath, cactus, Chinese money plant, succulent, hearts on a string, spider plant, peace lily and blue star fern.
Spinning discs with a view of some great green friends and fantastic palm leaves might almost make you think you’re on a tropical desert island. Close your eyes and dream!
