Summer is the perfect season to give your bedroom a light and bright makeover. Switching up your bedroom with the seasons can make you fall in love with bedtime all over again, and summer is all about drawing back the curtains and letting the light in.

We're tucking away our thick winter blankets and throws (although not too far, British weather can be temperamental!) and making some summery additions to our home.

We're sharing our favourite ways to add some summer styling to your home.

Brighten Up Your Bed

To make your bedroom feel as bright as possible, start with your bed. A fresh set of bed sheets not only feels amazing to slide into, but can breathe new life into your bedroom style.


Our White Cotton Percale is the perfect choice for your bed during the summer months, the 100% cotton will keep your skin cool and the light colour will reflect the light. If you're all about colour and white sheets aren't for you, then choose soft pastel shades like duck egg and light blue for your accent colours.


Swap Your Curtains

To make the most of the long summer days, let the light into your bedroom as much as possible. Swap your dark and heavy curtains for light cotton sheers. This will let the breeze flow freely through the room at night, and you can enjoy the sunshine (as it most likely, won't last long!).

Summer Bedside Styling

The easiest space in your bedroom to switch up and style for the seasons is your bedsides. You can transition your bedroom from winter to summer with just a few small changes to your bedside.


During summer we love to add a great big vase of flowers to our bedside... who doesn't love to shop for beautiful blooms?

If you have lamps with dark shades, swap this for something in a lighter colour. Pop your scented candles away for when the darker evenings arrive.

Rearrange Your Furniture

This will have the biggest impact on refreshing your bedroom for the summer...

  • It gives you a chance to have a good clean
  • You could make your bedroom feel bigger
  • You'll feel like you have lovely new things, without spending a single penny.
  • Change is always good!

Bring The Outdoors In

The world outside our bedroom window blooms during the summer months, so why not bring some of that beauty inside?

Style up your bedroom for summer with an abundance of succulents, house plants of beautiful bouquets of flowers. Having plants in your home will make it feel fresh and if you take good care of them, a plant can last a lifetime.


If you struggle to keep your plants looking perky, then pop "How Not to Kill Your Plants" by Nik Southern on your bookshelf!

Pop small trinkets full of posy's around the bedroom, or make a statement with a lovely big bunch of blooms. We've just discovered the lovely Bloomon... we used a beautiful bunch of their flowers at our most recent photo shoot and we we're very impressed! Lots of wild and unique flowers that we'd never seen before.

Freshen Up

If you didn't get around your big spring clean, summer is the perfect time to freshen up your home. A time to clear up any clutter, switch to your summer bedding and get rid of any lurking dust. You'll be surprised at how much difference a deep clean can have.
