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.
Even simply adding in a palm frond or two can provide a room with tropical flair.
Sheer lace panels are a good choice for windows and such. They are reminiscent of old fashioned mosquito netting which was once a summertime staple.
Summer is the perfect time to indulge in florals.
Just a single pillow or an entire bed covering provides the visual essence of the sweet smell of summertime.
You can also look to iconic designers, such as Lilly Pulitizer, when decorating a summertime space. Her bright and happy textiles are the epitome of summertime chic.
Palm Beach style is also a great choice. I wrote a complete post devoted to this style of decorating HERE.
Coastal style makes for such lovely and peaceful décor.
It can easily go beyond classic blue and white if you want something more.
Having rattan in the bedroom can also create a sweet touch of summer.
This look can be easily incorporated by adding in a shelf or chair.
Nautical style is always a sure winner.
It’s fun to include a balanced variety of the above styles to create a bedroom that makes you feel like you are on vacation all summer long.
