SPRING BEDROOM DECORATING IDEAS

MASTER BEDROOM

And my SPRING KITCHEN TOUR AND DECORATING IDEAS HERE.

SPRING KITCHEN

Both tours are filled with lots of pictures and ideas you can incorporate into your home!

Today we are in the master bedroom and I’m sharing just how easy it is to make a few changes in this room to make it spring and summer-ready!

I think of our bedroom as a sanctuary. So everything I put into this room has to work with that adjective. Just the thought of coming into our bedroom and closing the door makes me feel relaxed!

The best spring bedroom decorating ideas are simple! And all these ideas are not only simple but smart!

Here are a few easy to do, spring-inspired things you can do to help create a relaxing and inviting spring bedroom.

DECLUTTER FIRST

Clutter causes stress. It is just the opposite of what you want your bedroom to be!

SUMMER BEDROOM

So the first thing to do is get rid of everything that does not belong in a pretty and peaceful bedroom!

Make your bedroom a clutter free zone! And work at keeping it that way!

Even lots of things on a night table can clutter a room! So take a minimal approach to everything in a bedroom.

LIGHTEN UP YOUR SPRING BEDROOM

MIRRORED ARMOIRE IN A BEDROOM

This tip has many meanings! Think light textures, light colors, light fabrics, light decorating!

First open up those windows and take heavy drapes off. Give your windows a good cleanings so that beautiful spring light streams in!

We took down the woven linen drapes in our bedroom and replaced them with a lighter soft white linen curtain. What a difference! Just doing this one thing made our room look so much lighter and brighter!

MASTER BEDROOM DONE IN NEUTRALS AND SOFT AQUA

We also replaced our wide slat blinds with soft cellular blinds that retract up to the top of the window frame. Now we have a panoramic view of the world outside!

SPRING BEDROOM DECORATING IDEAS FOR YOUR BED

CHOOSE A WHITE COVERLET

A white coverlet is my go-to choice for all of our bedding. Its a great foundation and perfect for a light cover layer.

BED IN A BEDROOM

Especially in warmer weather when the air conditioner is on, we don’t need a big heavy duvet but one nice mid-weight layer works great.

I’m so partial to a matelasse coverlet. They have a subtle patterned stitching on them that adds texture to the bedding. And the white works with almost any other bedding on your bed!

I get asked all the time how I keep white slipcovers or bed coverings clean. It’s so easy! Oxyclean! Works like magic! I’ve washed this coverlet countless times and it always looks so fresh and white when it comes out of the wash.

USE LIGHTWEIGHT QUILTS AND OTHER COVERS

Think about changing up all your bedding in the spring and summer. It makes sense to choose lighter fabrics, lighter textures and lighter colors and patterns.

SUMMER BEDDING ON A BED

For our master bedroom, I opted for this pretty Spa colored quilt with ivory ball trim from Ballard Designs. You can see it HERE.

I’ve loved this Audree Pom Pom quilt and shams for several years! So I finally decided to make the investment so I can use and enjoy how peaceful it makes the whole room look.

I switch up bedding in the fall and the spring. First of all, it feels so nice to put different bedding on my bed, and switching the bedding meets the sleeping comfort need for the new seasons.

We want to be comfortable when we sleep so knowing what bedding to choose is so important!

I’m not a duvet gal unless I use the duvet cover as a bedspread. The heaviness of even the lightest duvet makes me feel restricted. So, for me, I like a light quilt.

PILLOWS ON THE BED

Use decorative pillows on your bed any time of year! If you have a queen size bed like we do three Euro Shams work across the bed perfectly. Add another Euro Sham for a king size bed!

I’ve used two Euro Shams on our queen size bed in the past but two is just not enough. So don’t scrimp on the Euro Shams because you won’t be happy with the look!

BEAUTIFULLY MADE BED

Instead of adding lots of extra decorative pillows try adding one long bolster pillow in a pretty complementary color and print!

As usual, when the camera comes out Hobbes comes running. It’s the funniest thing! For this photo shoot I had to eventually put him in the basement!

PILLOWS ON A BED

This spring’s decorative pillow choices were so different for me! I usually love lots and lots of pillows but decided to have just one long pillow for the bed this spring.

I chose the 16 x 36 bolster pillow in this light fawn color. You can see it HERE.

ADD FLOWERS

Spring is all about flowers so use them in your bedroom!

FLOWERS ON A BEDSIDE TABLE

I love to use real flowers, but in reality I most often use faux blooms in our bedroom.

Flowers are such a special treat and add lots of spring beauty to a room! I used these pretty faux white ranunculus. Ranunculus are just so pretty! If you love peonies then you might want to give ranunculus a try!

I found a white pot with raised dots in the basement and put the blooms in there.

The silhouette in the black frame is of my little granddaughter Emma Kate.

NIGHT STAND IN BEDROOM WITH WHITE FLOWERS ON IT

It’s amazing what a little bit of black in a room will do!

OTHER SPRING BEDROOM DECORATING IDEAS

I kept this room quite minimal this spring. I used a glass jar to hold a few faux spring branches.

I just love the “movement” of these branches and how their leaves are sparsely opening up here and there.

JUG WITH SPRING BRANCHES IN IT

I also added a spring-inspired picture that reminds me to “bloom where you are planted”. You can see 4 pretty spring printables of mine and lots from other bloggers HERE. I’m sure you will find a spring printable you can use in your home.

Your bedroom is worth a little spring makeover! Make it a pretty and comfortable sanctuary!

Here are some other spring bedroom decorating ideas for your bedroom…

  • add a throw to the end of the bed in a spring color
  • linen sheets (I invested in linen sheets several years ago and that is all we use on our bed. I LOVE them. They just get softer and loftier with age. Not all linen sheets are the same. You can see the sheets we use HERE.)
  • wallpaper the wall your headboard is on with peel and stick wallpaper
  • add a bed tray to your bed with a vase of pretty flowers.
  • put a big oversized floral decal over your bed
  • add a rattan bench or chair to give your bedroom a warm-weather look
  • change out what is over your bed and add a trio of floral pictures
  • add a canopy of fabric on the wall in the back of your bed that goes to the ceiling and then drapes over your bed. Dreamy look!
  • add hooks and hang straw hats and baskets from them

  1. It was a pleasure to see your beautiful bedroom, Yvonne. I love your new quilt with matching shams along with your pretty matelasse coverlet and unique bedskirt. It is so sweet that Hobbes wants to be with you and was kind enough to pose on your bed.

  2. These tips are amazing!! I love your new quilt and sham!! Beautiful and ready for Spring! My bedroom needs so much attention. I’m totally gonna reference this post when I finally get around to doing a bedroom refresh!!

  3. Great minds think alike! I already have my white quilt on my bed. Hobbes is adorable, should be in all your pictures!

  4. I love your spring bedroom redo. I think that the spa colored coverlet is such a calm and pretty color.My change for spring is switching my bedding to light weight Laura Ashley print quilt and shams with a white bedskirt replacing my off white one and alot of decluttering . My cat Ollie,refuses to stay off our bed when I am trying to make it. I can remove him only to turn around and find him right back . I finally give it and make the bed with him on it after placing him on his own washable throw. Such a spoiled boy!

  5. Beautiful bedroom! I love the spa color. Your bed skirt is very unique. Is it the ivory or the natural color that you have?

  6. Everything is styled beautifully, Yvonne! So bright and airy. I adore the bedding and how you created all of the comfy, cozy layers. So happy to be joining you on the spring home tour this week. Pinned!

  7. Your bedroom is stunning and so bright and airy! I love all of your Spring decor tips as well. Had so much fun being on this tour!

  8. I never saw Mr. Hobbs before, he is a delightful surprise. He added a little ginger to your bedroom and looked ready to settle for a nap. I think the bedroom totally presents “Sanctuary” and peace. And I love the color of the quilt and shams.

  9. Could you PLEASE tell me where you got the pictures on each side of your bed? I have been searching high and low for taupe shade pictures. They would be perfect!!

  10. Your bedroom is absolutely GORGEOUS. Wished I had the opportunity to purchase new furniture for mine. I have a cherry set., about 7 years old. Anyway, I’m wondering where you purchased your prints behind the lamps?

  11. Girl, you master bedroom looks lovely (as always). You know how partial I am to an aqua blue, so your ‘spa’ colored quilt and pillow covers are calling my name! (Love those pom-poms!) I definitely need to follow your first tip on decluttering. After this weekend, I’m hoping to go full bore with the de-clutter! Missed hopping with you, but it was such a good decision for me this time! See you tomorrow! Woot-woot!

  12. Yvonne, as always, your home looks lovely. It’s the little details that make a house a home, and I love the pom-pom trimmed shams and sweet silhouette on the nightstand. Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  13. Your bedroom is lovely. Are you able to share where you got your botanical beige prints?

    Thank you! Sandy

  14. This is so fresh and pretty, Yvonne! I love the quilt and shams with the ball fringe; adorable! Great ideas for getting the bedroom all ready for Spring and Summer, too!

  15. Yvonne once again I learned so many great things from your post. You have a way with words and your photography backs it up. Thank you for sharing your Spring bedroom tips with us! I pinned it! Happy Spring and thanks for

  16. Yvonne your bedroom looks beautiful and I would love to share it with my audience in my weekly round-up tomorrow. It was so fun hopping with you this week. Your home is gorgeous and I love your blog! xo

  17. Your bedroom is beautiful! I love your pillows and bedding and your furnishings are gorgeous! Fun to tour with you and as always get so much inspiration!

    1. I’ve been in southern CA for a couple weeks so I have not had time to visit all the beautiful spring tour posts. When I get home I will. It will be a treat.

  18. Hello Yvonne – I absolutely love your bedding. My bedroom walls are BM Palladian Blue
    HC-144 and I currently have tan carpeting and gray and white bedding. I absolutely love your quilt and shams in the Spa Blue color. Do you think the Spa Blue color would be too matchy with my wall color? I intend to have a white bedskirt and white sheets and blankets, drapes, etc. Do you have any thoughts? Many thanks! I just LOVE your style!

    1. The coverlet and Euro shams are actually more green than they are blue. You should probably buy a euro sham and see how the color works with the rest of the room and if it doesn’t return it. Hope this helps.

  19. In the above beautiful bedrooms post you have the Audree bedspread and the Raw Silk Woven bedskirt from soft surroundings. Can you please tell me what color the bedskirt is. Is it the Natrual or the Ivory? Please and thank you

  20. Your bedroom is beautiful and so peaceful. I just love it! Would you please share where you bought the lovely botanicals above each nightstand? They are wonderful! I just can’t wait to read your blog every day. Such an inspiration!

    Thanks so much!

  21. Hi Yvonne,
    Love your bedroom. I am trying to figure out the Martha Steward rug color under your bed. Is it the Sharkey Grey or the Beige color choice on the wayfair website? If its the Sharkey Grey is there much grey in it and what is the true base color? The photos are misleading on the wayfair site. Thank you

  22. The link to your bedroom bed shirt didn’t work. Please let me know where you purchased it,’
    Thank you! Sharron
