HAPPY SUMMER! There are many things I love about summer… long evenings, lightening bugs in the back yard, days at the pool, garden flowers and warm breezes to name a few. But when the temps soar and the humidity is thick summer sleeping can be a challenge even with air conditioning! Here are some super tips for keeping cool all summer night long!
Let’s dress our beds and rooms and even ourselves for sweet dreaming summer nights!
Dressing for summer nights means light pajamas and layers. I tend to want breathable natural fabrics when looking for summer pj’s. My favorite sleep attire is cotton capris style bottom and a white cotton top with 3/4 length sleeves. They are comfortable and look nice to lounge in too!
I can even have coffee on the porch and no one knows I’m in my pajamas!
Summer is all about feeling cool and comfortable!
It’s surprising that many people do not change their bedding when the warmer weather rolls around! It makes such a huge difference in sleep quality!
Let’s start with the foundation. Sheets are one of the items in our homes that are worth investing in! The average person spends 22 years in bed in a lifetime! And we sleep enveloped between sheets! Don’t you think we deserve to sleep in beautiful comfort!
For summer, linen is the best choice for a sheet! It is lofty and breathable and just so so beautiful. Its natural fibers are moisture wicking and will keep us covered but cool!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these gorgeous linen sheets from Saphyr Pure Linen! And I am very fussy about sheets! If you give linen sheets a try you will be a quick convert! I sure was!
The raw edges are beautifully crafted and are a giveaway that the sheets are of fine linen! And the wrinkles… just part of the beauty! The more you wash SaphyrPure Linen sheets the softer they become!
Natural fiber sheets should be paired with a light natural fiber blanket. Nothing heavy. I only put one on a bed and stow another in a closet if guests get chilly. We are warm bodies so one very light blanket works for Bobby and me!
Linen blankets are my summer favorite! Like linen sheets, they are super soft and fluffy and a joy to sleep under! And they often have raw edges too!
A white coverlet works beautifully as a summer bedspread. But lately, I’ve been taking the duvet out of my duvet covers and using them sans the hot duvet as a coverlet! Genius, right? And the duvet cover is the perfect weight too! This summer I found this gorgeous blue and white duvet cover on sale! It works as a pretty bedspread!
Give it a try for a new look and a light feel!
A must-have in the bedrooms at StoneGable are fans even though we have air conditioning! Fans work amazingly well to circulate the air and as white noise. We don’t have ceiling fans so we keep small fans in every bedroom closet. And we use ours ever night!
Another way to revel in the beauty of summer and to fill the air with sweet aromas is to use a diffuser! My favorite scents to diffuse in the summer are lavender, lemongrass, mint and tangerine.
Don’t forget the flowers! I think a small bouquet of summer flowers is such a pretty way to bring the outdoors in. And we often forget about adding flowers to a bedroom! Why not add a few herbs like mint, marjoram, or basil to your bouquet.
Make your bed and room a refuge during hot summer nights by investing in summer-friendly bedding and some prettily scented items!
Sweet summer dreams!
