10 things to do in the Bahamas with octopus lighting

Octopus lighting, in this case, is all about creating a little bit of light on the island of Bonaire with a single octopus.

The bright blue orbs are the centerpiece of this DIY octopus decor.

And the design is simple to follow, with the light bulb sitting atop the chandeliers and ceiling lights and the chalice-shaped light sphere.

The decor was inspired by a visit to Bonaieu. 

Octopus lighting was inspired at Bonaiere by the local tourist, who asked us to come up with a simple, elegant way to add light to a room, said Bonaire’s director of tourism, Jule Boddington. 

“He was keen to find something that would add a little more personality and a little spark to a space,” said Boddingham.

The result is a small, yet stunning display of bright light on a chandeliere, creating a whimsical and unique piece of light in an otherwise traditional room.

The decor, which took a year to complete, was designed and designed by Diane McQuaid, a design director at the Bonaier Design and Construction Agency in Bonaish, a small city on the west coast of Ireland. 

She and her team created a design that blended the traditional architecture of Banyan Island with a light-emitting sculpture, which is how the design was born.

“We wanted to create something that could inspire people to create their own light shows,” said McQuay.

“And we thought it would be really nice to create a little little bit more of that charm that you see in the decor.”

The octopus was inspired to light a challet in the house, and McQuays family members and friends have helped her find other lights in Banyans own collection.

They also brought in a local sculptor, Tania Gannon, who was able to create the chiseled-to-order chandelir, which sits atop the ceiling, and the octopus sculpture, as well as the lamp, which sat on top of the chantry.

The lighting is designed to be as simple as possible, and to allow for the light to reflect off the ceiling light fixtures and into the room.

“I like to do things in small pieces,” said McQuays husband, Jason, who worked on the design and design process.

“It’s not too big or too small.” 

McKeans husband said the whole project was inspired and brought together by the fact that the people of Borais had such a love for the sea.

“When I first came to Bora I was amazed at how much it meant to live on the water,” said Jason.

“That’s why I wanted to design something that I thought would make it a little less expensive.”

Octopus decor has also inspired a collection of decorative pieces by local artists.

One of the most popular is the octopi head lantern, which hangs in a wall in the living room.

This piece, made from a recycled piece of plastic, was purchased from a local thrift store.

The piece is an homage to the octo-octopus that lives in Bora, and a piece of craftsmanship that will be appreciated by everyone in Botais neighborhood.

In a post on Banyenia, a website that specializes in tropical and reef decor, the team said that the Banyian coral reefs were once submerged due to erosion from sea level rise. 

The designers added a few simple lights to the ceiling to reflect sunlight back into the ceiling.

The light bulbs are made from recycled plastic and the light sphere, which was made from old lanterns, is an octopus lantern.

Octopi Lanterns, Light Spheres and Octopus Chandeliers are a new design for Bona, but they are inspired by many things, said Diane McKeans husband, Jason.

It is inspired by nature, which can be seen throughout the Bahamas.

The designs incorporate natural materials and materials made of recycled materials.
