Freshen Up Your Bedroom For Summer

Freshen Up Your Bedroom For Summer

We may be half way through summer but here on the Westcoast there are no signs of it cooling off anytime soon!  As we enter in to the hottest month of the year it is the perfect time to freshen up your bedroom, (that is if you haven't already)!  Take a look below at my 5 quick tips on changing up your sleeping space for summertime.



Tip 1:

Swap out your heavy winter duvet for a lighter one.  If you usually sleep with darker bedding, switch to white or cream.  If white is not for you try grey or light blue stripes for a nautical theme!  A linen duvet cover and sheet set is another great option to keep you cool on those hot summer nights, the lighter fabric will be much more breathable.

Fun Bright Pillows

Tip 2:

Bright patterned pillows are a great way to brighten up your room without having to commit to a coloured bedspread.  If you have a patterned bedspread,  mix and match with solid white and coloured pillows in bright shades.  I personally love all white, so these fun pillows really make a statement.  Plus whats more summery than a palm print?!  

Set The Mood

Tip 3:

There is something about sitting on a patio at night during the summer with candles lit that is so relaxing.  Why not bring that zen into your room?!  I love these tea light candles from West Elm, you will feel like you are camping with the flickering pattern they create, but in the comfort of your own bed!  

Freshen Up With Florals

Tip 4:

Fresh florals or plants are a great way to brighten up your bedroom.  Keep them on your nightstand so they are the first thing you see in the morning, when you are rolling over to check your phone ;)  Bonus, they will make your bedroom smell amazing!

Lighten Up Your Throws

Tip 5:

I don't know about you but even in the summer I like to have an extra throw on my bed.  Switch your heavier winter wool throws for a thin woven one to avoid being too hot.  Pick one in a bright solid colour or stripped with fringe like the two above.
