Tips for Summer Bedroom Style
The Color Blue
For many of us, summer invokes thoughts of clear blue skies and leisurely time spent on a shore. Blue isn’t just part of Mother Nature’s summer lookbook though. A cool color pallet can influence a cooler feeling environment for the user of the space. Whites and cool colors together help the room feel elevated, like a breath of fresh air. Bring in cool-toned whites and blues into your bedroom and pop with saturated versions of the blues in your color palette. Bring the outside inside to find your summer bedroom style.
Summer bedroom style can be found in the fabrics you choose. Due to its inherent qualities, it’s no wonder why linen is one of the go-to fabrics for summer. It’s a material that can be made into a luxuriously smooth weave or a loose, more laid back style for apparel and home. Linen is a natural, breathable fabric, making it perfect for many uses throughout the time of year when temperatures and humidity are high. For the bedroom, replace the duvet with lightweight layers that can be built up to adjust as needed for warmer nights. Linen is also perfect to use for shades, pillowcases, and even shower curtains. We love the Laelia and Orchid pillowcases below from Italian crafters, Lime. Lime is focused on producing high-quality textile goods with natural fibers and expertly crafted embroidery, all made in Italy. We love them because they mix these values with their modern designs for modern families. The Laelia and Orchid pillowcases are just two examples of the fun, colorful textiles they create for the home.
Fresh Cut Flowers
Fresh cut flowers can liven up a room and uplift your mood any time of the year and in just about any room in the house. With the changing of seasons making many of us feel the need to update our spaces, flowers pack a good fresh punch without much cost or effort. You can always have fun with the style of vase you place your flowers in or opt for a simple glass container. Waking up amongst fresh and fragrant petals such as jasmine or magnolias is sure to lift your spirits. A striking arrangement of the bird of paradise can add to the tropical oasis feel of your bedroom.
With longer days and shorter nights, you may not necessarily be on the same sleeping schedule with Mother Nature. Use your window treatments to control how much light comes into the room. This helps you sleep in undisturbed while the sun rages on outside. Blackout shades come in a variety of styles, such as roman shades or traditional curtains. Some designs allow for the blackout shade to roll up completely out of the way when they’re not in use, thus allowing all the light to shine through when you do want it.
The changing of seasons is a great reason to reinvigorate your home. With the bedroom being a place you go to rest and rejuvenate, it deserves some attention so it can help you use it optimally. Other than stylistic changes to your bedroom, consider a thorough clean to remove any allergy-causing dust and debris that’s accumulated over the colder months. Purging unwanted items and welcoming in fun new accessories will have you loving your bedroom all over again.
