Summer Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Creating rooms in your home that feel somehow lighter can help get you through a long, hot summer.

This includes the bedroom which can be easily transformed into a summertime retreat.

Simply removing excess blankets, pillows and other accessories give a room a lighter feel.

Using soft colors and adding in a pretty bouquet of garden flowers can also work wonders.


But the sunny season is also a good time to have fun. Bright, festive prints can happily provide a summertime feel.

Give your bedroom a summer update with tropical prints that will brighten your space and lift your mood. | H&M Home:

Even simply adding in a palm frond or two can provide a room with tropical flair.

Hi Laura, Such pretty summer rooms. I love the little twin beds. My older sis and I shared a bedroom growing up and had mahogany twin beds. I currently am using a pale aqua lightweight quilt as a bedspread for summertime.

Wow what gorgeous rooms. I agree that lighter and airier rooms really make a difference during the hot summer months. There are many homes in Italy that don't have air conditioning and that really makes things difficult when it's suffocatingly hot outside but a peaceful decor with lots of lace and cotton lightens things up a bit.

Hi Laura,
I am in love with Bedroom #1 for sure. Love robins egg blue and the neutrals.
It also reminds me of my daughters bedroom in their new
Her set up is very similar with the placement of the bed and the high head
board, and the high white ceilings and window placement. All of the rooms
were gorgeous tho....and thanks for sharing them, always fun to get new

Also Thanks for coming by and for your encouraging comments. Hope you will come
by again soon.

Blessings, Nellie

I've been thinking about lighter colors for the lake house. The interior is knotty pine which I love and we use quilts in all the rooms but some are on the darker side, which look great with the wood but could be a bit lighter. This is good inspiration!

Photos #1 and 2 are my favorites. #1 because I love the soft and serene look and #2 because of the country look of red and gold together. Thank you for your post - so motivating! Have a good weekend, Laura. : )

The first bedroom, minus a bit of ruffles, and the one with the iron bed have me swooning. I simply love an invting bedroom. I love to read, relax and nap in my room as well as get a night's sleep.

Thanks, Laura!

Great summer inspiration. I need to lighten up my rooms for summer.

As much as I like the coziness of blankets, pillow, comforters etc., during the fall/winter months, there is really something special about the lightness and brightness of a summer bedroom. Thanks for sharing some wonderful examples!
