What Your Summer Bedroom Needs
- Jun 30, 2015
It’s officially summer. The warm breeze is blowing, flowers are in full bloom, and you wake up feeling like something is missing. In this blog, we are going to help you find the missing “pizzaz” to freshen up your bedroom with a simple summertime makeover!
You don’t need to completely renovate your bedroom to create a fresh new look for summer. Pack your winter blankets away and invite the summertime in with these simple bedroom makeover tips.
Let the light in
Look for ways you can let in natural light to the room. Swap heavy, dark curtains for sheer, natural window treatments to let in light while keeping heat out or hanging mirrors in your room.
Mirrors reflect natural light instead of absorbing it. You can use a mirrored table, or using a beautiful mirrored tray to hold your favorite reads of the season. For any size room, a large accent mirror can make it look bigger and reflect light around the space.
Declutter and condense
Throughout the busy months of winter and early spring, clutter can pile up. Clutter and disorganization can cause stress and anxiety, inhibit creativeness and make it difficult to relax.
Take a look at your room to see if there is anything you can get rid of or put into storage during the warmer months. Using a stylish shelf or hanging organizer is another great way to clean up the clutter and free up space.
Bring the outdoors in
Everyone wants to be outdoors when the weather is warm.
Bring an outdoor element to your bedroom decor, such as putting fresh-cut flowers in a watering can, adding a natural wood night stand or bringing in a vintage patio chair to put in the corner.
Sleep in summery serenity
Pack away the heavy blankets and flannel sheets. Science has proved that most people sleep better in cooler temperatures.
Thick comforters and blankets can trap heat and make you uncomfortable, so deck your bed with lightweight, breathable materials.
If you like the “weight” of a blanket over you (like everyone here at home!) look for coverlets like this one from Pottery Barn.
Bright, flowery patterns are popular this season, so use a patterned quilt or matching duvet set, such as the Grandiflora set at Wayfair.com.
