Summer Fresh Bedroom Ideas
Summer is a great time to give your bedroom a quick refresh. Remove heavy blankets, swap out winter bedding for lighter cotton sheets and a coverlet, and don’t forget to add a bouquet of flowers from the garden! Here’s a collection of summer fresh bedroom ideas to get your creativity flowing!
Indulge in White
White linens on the bed bring back memories of grandma’s sheets outside on the line blowing in the breeze. The fresh scent of those sheets on the bed is so soothing and pleasant.

Add romance to a summer fresh bedroom with an airy canopy. Include texture with baskets, curtains, and a lightweight throw.
Summer picnics and 4th of July celebrations are the perfect reason to add a red, white, and blue scheme to your bedroom. Keep furnishings to a minimum to keep an uncluttered look.

Paint a door or bed a patriotic color when decorating a summer fresh bedroom.
Lighten Up with Neutrals
For a summer fresh bedroom, use a lighter neutral color scheme like pale gray and white.
The look can be formal or casual. The light shades create a sense of peace and calm.
Don’t be afraid to add a comforter at the foot of the bed. If you sleep with the air conditioner, you might find you need it.
Have you ever enjoyed snoozing in a sleeping porch? A sun room can work as well. Lightweight drapes can be pulled to keep out morning sunlight.

Add a Punch of Color
Use a beautiful painting or piece of artwork as inspiration for a summer fresh bedroom. Pull colors out from the art into the rest of the room, like bedding or flowers.
Soft cool colors will keep summer’s heat at bay in your bedroom.
Bright colors are sure to put a smile on your face when you awaken in the morning.

Who Doesn’t Want a Summer Sleeping Porch?
These bedrooms were all so beautiful and relaxing but I have to imagine them with two dogs included at night – one on the end of the bed and one on the floor — but that’s okay. I still prefer crisp, white sheets on my bed, even in the wintertime and can still recall the fragrance and the softness of the outdoors that came from hanging on my mother’s clothesline in the sun and the wind. We were a poor family, but that fragrance and softness was free. One of my favorite childhood memories.
Wow, these are all beautiful.
Beautiful!!! Thank you for posting these lovely rooms.
Such beautiful, inspiring rooms! I too remember hanging clothes outside for my mother as a young girl. Sure didn’t appreciate it at the time though! Now I want to do it again, so fresh and lovely! Enjoyed this and all your posts very much. Thank you.
Do you have any dining room inspiration? I have wallpaper above and below a plate rail with dark woodwork. I would like to update my look with a new area rug, window treatment and either paper or paint on the walls, but I just haven’t seen anything similar to my dining room. Thank you.
