To achieve a bedroom décor with a summer feel the first thing to consider is creating the feeling of brightness and open space. It is important to evaluate the size of the space that you want to transform before you start.
For example if you wanted to transform your box room, the feeling of space will be created instantly by painting the walls crisp white, making the most of the light bouncing off each wall. This room can then be accessorised with items to create a nautical theme, bold striped bedding, white furniture and pictures of the sea will transform your box room into a ship shape guest room.
A larger room, such as your master bedroom will have bigger windows, make the most of these by using foldable shutter blinds, once opened they will flood the room with light and instantly uplift you. Match these with a white painted floor to reflect the light and dark wood furniture, making a perfect contrast and creating a beautiful colonial feel to the space.
Another way to add a summer feel to a room is to think floral! It can be a stencil on the wall, a plain piece of furniture or the ceiling. Floral wallpaper, whether it is on all four walls or for bolder patterns one feature wall. It injects a real feeling of summer into a room and is a great idea for a children’s room too.
Bright colours cheer up any room, a bold patchwork bed spread is a quick and easy way to update your space, which can be switched to a more muted version as we move into the autumn season. Things like cushions and rugs can all be used to produce an instant refresh.
Pastel tones are perfect for creating a relaxed shabby chic feel to a room, reminiscent of a beautiful sunny day. The ice cream shades of mint green, duck egg blue and pastel pinks all work great for wall colours, scatter cushions or throws. Compliment these tones with a four poster bed and fresh white linen, then finish off with a natural wood floor and a simple rug.
Hopefully we have got your creative juices flowing with these ideas on how to make your home feel like summer.
