Summer decorating is easy to do when it comes to our bedroom! Here are 6 ways to have a pretty, cool and inviting summer bedroom…
CHOOSE SUMMER COLORS AND TEXTURES
You may have already chosen a beautiful color palette for your bedroom but now it the time to add a few textiles and accessories to enhance the colors in your room and give it a bit of a summer vibe!
Our neutral bedrooms get a big shot of the saturated burnt yellow I love so much! By adding bedding in this bright color it creates a summery feel in our bedroom!
Texture is important too! Think about the juxtaposition of a cotton coverlet or a duvet and nubby accents like the jute cording around the pillows to make a summer bedroom interesting! No matter what the season, mix up textures!
I loosely used the fabric on the bench for the color palette in our bedroom. To emphasize the burnt yellow/gold in the settee fabric I added a burlap pillow to it in that same pop of color.
CHOOSE SUMMERY PILLOWS
One of the best summer bedroom decorating ideas is to add pretty, summery pillows to a bed! I love a bed filled with pillows so I tend to go a bit overboard!
Pillows have the almost magical ability to change the look of a room.
Because our beds are usually the focal point of our bedrooms the pillows on a bed grab our attention and send amazingly detailed messages to our brains!
Pillows say, “look at me, look at me”!
By adding pillows in subtle color, texture, or motifs of summer we immediately add a summer feel to our bedrooms!
BEST SUMMER BEDROOM IDEA FOR A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
Sleeping in comfort is the most important “job” in our bedrooms!
And the number one thing to think about when we think about summer bedrooms ideas is how to get a comfortable night’s sleep!
The best way to get a good night’s sleep when the temperature soars is to make sure your bedding is cool and comfortable!
Best Summer Bedroom Idea For Keeping Cool
Even though we have central air I still love a fan to circulate the cool air around the room.
We have an overhead fan in our master bedroom. I swore for 35 years that I would never have one of those ugly things in my bedroom. But when we moved into the Tanglewood house there was a ceiling fan in our bedroom.
I had all intentions of removing it until I slept with the fan on one night. Wow, did it make a big difference! Now I am a huge fan of ceiling fans!!!
Whether you have a ceiling fan or a floor fan the idea is to have the air circulate around the room. Most of us have air conditioned bedrooms and still our rooms can feel stuffy and stale! A fan solves this issue and adds to our slumbering comfort!
How To Make A Duvet Summer Friendly
Put this next tip into the best every summer bedroom idea!
Instead of getting rid of a duvet in the summer, use it as an extra light layer. Did you know you can add a lightweight blanket as an insert to your duvet or use the duvet sans duvet insert!
I put a very light summer weight blanket inside our duvet and it is just perfect for us! No heavy duvet on our bed!
A duvet is such a pretty layer to add to a summer bed, it just has to be practical too!
We love the look of an extra layer on a bed but not the bulk. By taking a heavy insert out of the duvet cover it becomes a very lightweight addition to your summer bed. Brilliant, right?
One of the best investment I made in a good nights sleep was linen sheets. What a difference!
Not all linen sheets are alike so do your homework and buy the best quality you can afford! I have two sets of linen sheets I use all year. Even though they were pricy they keep getting better and better after each washing.
And I’ll probably have these gorgeous sheets for decades! Here are my FAVORITE LINEN SHEETS. And this is not a sponsored post!
ADD FLOWERS REAL OR FAUX
What is summer decorating without flowers? Pick them from your yard, garden, and landscaping! Find them along the roadside or buy them! However you get them put flowers in your master bedroom.
I get such an emotional lift when I get up in the morning and see a pretty vase of flowers in our bedroom! I think flowers are good for the soul!
Here in Lancaster County sunflowers fill fields and gardens! They are very popular! Our local farm market, Mecks Produce, has bouquets of fresh-from-the-field sunflowers and they are so reasonably priced!
No wonder you see them in our home all summer and into fall!
Faux Plants = Easy Care
If you are too busy for real flowers, another summer bedroom idea is to use faux plants in pretty summery pots!
I keep faux plants on the nightstands on either side of the bed. The are pretty, add that nice organic element and do not need care, except for dusting!
For me, that’s a win/win!
A Great Place For A Tree
Okay, this is “do as I say and not as I do”! If you have the room, bring in a faux or real tree! I love the look of something tall and green in a bedroom for the summer!
This basket shows up in so many rooms here at Tanglewood but I think it has finally found a permanent home (for the summer at least) here in the master bedroom.
As soon as I can find a great tree I’ll replace the pillows with it!
ACCENTS ARE A GREAT SUMMER BEDROOM IDEA
Here’s my take on adding summer accents to a bedroom…
KEEP THEM AUTHENTIC to your space. What I mean by that is…
- Add summer accents sparingly! Your master bedroom is not the place to dump all the seashells and lanterns and other quintessential summer accents unless you live at the beach!
- Use organics like plants and flowers to create a summery feel in a bedroom
- Think of adding colors of the sand and sea to a bedroom instead of theme-y accents.
- Put away heavy accents. Less is best in the summer.
DIFFUSE SUMMER SCENTS
One of my favorite ways to add summer to our bedroom is to diffuse summer aromas! The diffuser hides behind the pictures on my nightstand!
My room smells beautiful and fresh!
I diffuse spearmint and lavender or citrus blend and peppermint in the morning and lavender and chamomile at night. You can see my favorite Young Living Oil essential oils HERE. If you would like to order anything please use my YLO number… #3098375
Our bedrooms are our sanctuary and should be a beautiful, welcoming and attractive place to spend summer nights!
