Give your bedroom a fresh and sunny makeover with our top ten summer decorating tips! From small changes you can make that won’t break the bank, to complete makeovers that will leave you feeling completely and utterly inspired to revamp your bedroom for summer.
- Printed florals
For an instant summer makeover in the bedroom, furnish your room with printed floral textiles, from bed linen to cushions, artwork, and floor rugs. Opt for vibrant patterns to really brighten up the room, ideally a summer color palette of light green, purples, pinks, and oranges.
- Quintessential bohemian
Bring the festival to your humble abode with romantic fairy lights and colorful Moroccan textiles. Complete the look by turning your bed into a dreamy sanctuary with a draped canopy that hangs from the ceiling.
- Chic white interiors
If there’s one color scheme you should consider for your bedroom this summer, it’s white. Choose fresh crisp white furnishings for the bedroom to create the feeling of extra space. White also enhances the brightness of the room and draws in natural sunlight.
- Al fresco interiors
Summer is all about embracing the outdoors, so bring aspects of your garden into the bedroom with fresh flowers. There are also so many great health benefits of flowers in the house, from boosting your energy levels, inspiring creativity, and de-polluting the air. Wonderful flower choices for the bedroom include jasmine, plumeria, lavender, and chamomile.
- Nautical charm
Transform your bedroom into a seaside escape using nautical-themed décor. Choose cool blue colors to bring a fresh ambiance into your bedroom, from traditional stripe bed sheets, DIY artwork, and charming seaside ornaments like seashells.
- Add a pop of tropical
Leafy greens and sunshine yellows are a sure way to define the essence of summer. Those that don’t shy away from color can really play around with bold chromes and textiles to convert your bedroom into a tropical bliss, from a tropical leaf wall feature for a striking look to minimalist décor such as pineapple ornaments and wicker-style furnishings.

- DIY seaside lighting
Remember those seashells you collected on the beach as a kid? Turn your childhood summer pastime into unique décor for your bedroom. Simply trade your tea light holder for seashells of your choice. DIY candle holders will look lovely on your bedside table and you can mix and match colors to match your décor and mood!
- Infuse pastels in a neutral space
If you’re thinking of adding color to your neutral styled bedroom, we recommend infusing the beauty of pastels. Whether it’s hanging up artwork, dotting around ornaments, throws or furnishings, you can always rely on the sophistication that pastels add to a room. However, if you overdo it your room may end up looking too child-like, so we suggest just simple touches such as plant pots, pillows, and photo frames.
- Change the sheets
A new season means a new look and the bed is the focal point of any bedroom, so if you’re looking to revitalize your room for summer, your bed is the best place to start. The first thing to consider when picking sheets for your bed-in-a-box is your room décor. Play around with your current style, as you don’t want sheets that drain the color from your room or patterns that make your room look too busy. Opt for bright and bold colors in a busy bedroom and elegant floral patterns in a neutral-styled room. Don’t forget to grab a cooling pillow or two for the bed too!
- Open wardrobe of summer essentials
Decorate your room with an organized open wardrobe. Whether it’s a rail feature or a completely open space wardrobe, your clothes will become part of your furnishing. Organize your clothes in sections of color to really make a statement and try to avoid cluttering the rails.
