When the sun starts shining, it’s a good time to change your interiors around to reflect the change in season. We’ve got our top ways and top style to update your bedding for summer.

Bringing in colour, shapes and textures can be a great way to freshen up your home decor to make it feel like your room is transformed and blooming out from the depths of winter.

Add Some Colour

A simple way to change how your room feels is to add in colour to a room, especially brighter shades.

Adding in bold and bright hues can help to lift a room, using shades 

Yellow is commonly a colour associated with summer, relating to the sunshine, flowers and brighter skies. So the perfect hue to incorporate into your bedding for summer is yellow.

We love this Seasons bedding by Morris & Co, using the intricate prints from textile designer William Morris. In a saffron yellow, it conjures up thoughts of crocuses and sunshine scenes.

Summer Florals

Synonymous with spring and summer are flowers. So there’s no better way to bring summer into your home than bring in floral motifs from your living room through to your bedroom.

Opt for brighter and sunnier floral prints, rather than palettes that feel more autumnal and wintery. So steer away from dark purples and rich greens and choose bright pops of colour of softer pastel hues.

A style like this Hula Floral Bedding by Ted Baker is a perfect style to do just this. The dark, black base shade helps the bright array of flowers really pop. Helping to bring a certain drama to the style.

Plus, this style is made from 100% cotton fabric with 220 thread count. Cotton is a moisture wicking fabric and helps to control temperature, making it the perfect bedding for summer. Check our guide for tips on how to sleep better in hotter weather.

White And Bright

If you’re not so much into turning your room into a rainbow of colour for the change of season, you can easily go the other way and opt for white.

White helps to amplify the sunshine and light that will be flooding into your room in the summer months. Choosing to have white bedding for summer helps to create a bright and warm tone to your bedroom space.

Removing darker shades and bringing in bright colours or white helps to transition a space with the seasons. Rather than creating a closed in, cosy space you want to create a cool, airy and light space.

Try Print

If you’re not so sold on pure white, use of prints other than florals can be a great way to bring some interest into your bedroom.

Print allows to bring a statement into your room and element of colour without using a block shade. Be bold when it comes to prints to use.
