Summer brings a lot of things along. There’s pleasant weather, a lot of greenery to enjoy, beautiful evenings, and lots of flowers. When it comes to decorating your house, it’s a good thing to embrace the seasons. Adapt to the changes and allow Mother Nature to provide you with the inspiration you need. A lot of people tend to stay focus on a fixed theme and while that works for certain seasons you’ll probably end up getting bored without seeing change.
Now all of us don’t have the finances to redo everything in the house. Buying new furniture for summer or painting all the walls can cost a lot. However, what you can do is make some easy changes to give your rooms a new look. The bedroom is important in every house. It is a place for you to rest and recharge yourself after a long day. That is why it needs to exude a sense of calmness. It needs to be a sanctuary you can relax in.
So, wondering how to refresh your bedroom for summer? Let’s get to it!
Here are few easy-to-follow tips that can help refresh your bedroom for summer, providing you a space that’s stylish and lively.
Go for Brighter Linens
While we pack away winter linens when summer arrives what we don’t tend to do is select summer linens that can give the bedroom a fresh look. Don’t be tempted to pull out those old linens from the cupboard. It is time for you to change this up. To refresh your bedroom you should invest in newer and brighter bedding.
Go for duvet cover sets that have floral patterns. They don’t need to perfect flowers per se, but as long as the design has a floral touch, it’ll do. You can also go with duvet cover sets that have splashes of color on a monotone base.
Use the Summer Light
Summer brings a lot of natural light for you to enjoy due to the longer days. Why not create a little seating area in your bedroom to make most of the light? Make sure that it’s near a window though. This will provide your bedroom with a more calming feel even if you don’t have time to sit down and read a book every day.
Add a canopy
Floaty fabrics, with bright floral designs, look wonderful when they happen to be fluttering near the windows or even around your bed. They also offer protection against bugs.
Bring the Greenery Inside
Adding indoor plants to your bedroom will make it feel fresher. Furthermore, it will also help to add some life to the overall interior. While you can go for fake plants, real indoor plants tend to improve the quality of air. Also, if you want to sleep in a fragrant bedroom go for potted plants that have a lot of flowers. You can also opt for small lemon trees or fragrant star jasmine. Who knows, you might end up attracting a butterfly or two, depending on the kind of plants you decide to add.
It’s All About the Colors
Summer is all about colors and you can do so much with the right color palate. Now, if your bedroom has walls that are dark colored, there’s no need for you to worry about ruining the look you want to achieve. You can still get a summery bedroom feel by adding a few summer-themed pillows. There are also other things that can be done. Why not put a white duvet cover on the bed and then pair that up with pillows with splashes of color?
