Today it snowed (boo!) but I’m going to feature summer fresh bedrooms to help me be patient while I wait for warmer days. Luckily I won’t have to wait too long as it looks like today is the last of the lingering winter weather. Thank goodness!
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.
Swapping out winter bedding with lighter fabrics and colors is an easy way to get your bedroom summer fresh. Or simply add a bouquet of pretty flowers or a new painting to keep things simple!
