White Bedroom Ideas for Summer Sleeping

Something about a white bedroom is so ethereal and inviting. Perhaps its the color that makes you feel like you’re sleeping in the clouds. White creates a light and airy element that’s perfect for summer sleeping. I hope you enjoy this collection of pretty bedrooms. I think the second and last one are my favorites!

Shades of white, from creamy to light tan or gray, create visual layers in a room and keep it from looking boring and uninteresting.

White doesn’t have to be relegated to shabby chic style. It looks fresh and clean in a more contemporary setting.

The color white can easily be applied to farmhouse style. You’ve seen plenty of black and white used by Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper. This white bedroom looks timeless and classic.

A white bedroom feels cool and calm in the summer months. Create interest by mixing both metallic and linen type fabrics on the bed.

Wood always pairs well with white, whether the wood is dark and rich, or light and natural like driftwood.

Maybe you’re not ready to paint your bedroom walls, but you can always layer your bed with light, white bedding options. I’m loving the sculpted rug in this white bedroom.

  1. I do find a mostly white bedroom to be peaceful and restful on the eyes. However, so do my two dogs, so at least for the time being, any white items on my bed are covered during the day. My bed happens to be in direct line to the large window that provides a view to what my pups have determined to be very interesting neighborhood watching. Sigh …. the things we tolerate for our pets.

    1. LOL. So true, Pat! I had a dog who loved “digging” on my bed and ruined several good comforters. Even with the door shut, she’d sometimes figure out how to get in the bedroom. Sigh.

      1. My nemesis of our pretty summer quilt and pillows is a large black cat who insists this is his favorite place to sleep. So during the day the bed is covered by a white cotton blanket I can easily wash. When company comes the cat and the scruffy blanket disappear. 😊

  2. My bedroom is basically white all year round. I add different throws and pillows and some times stuffed cat or dog. Occasionally I put a dark blue/light blue comforter across the foot of the bed but, only if needed.

  3. These are a wonderful assortment of what can be done to make a white bedroom better and i love them. I change mine depending on the seasons from blues to whites, thanks Jennifer and have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Marlene!

      Glad you enjoyed the white bedrooms! Now that I’ve painted mine a grayish brown, I’m struggling with its summer look but I’ll figure it out eventually.

  4. So cute! I like the first and last one too! I like the fresh flowers bringing in some color. 🌸🌺🌷
