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.
Clutter causes stress. It is just the opposite of what you want your bedroom to be!
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
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
Spring is all about flowers so use them in your bedroom!
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.
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.
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
