With summer in full swing, how is your home looking? More importantly, how does it feel? With the passing of winter and spring, our homes collect dust and the items we may have used in the winter are no longer needed.
Summer is the perfect time to refresh your bedroom space and make it feel bright and cool. Here are some tips to help you to freshen up your home décor and living areas:
Change your bedding
Whether you used thick bedding for your winter nights or had dark colors as your color palette in your room, summer is a great time to freshen things up. If you made your bed a cozy, warm place to climb into when it’s cold, now that the summer heat is upon us, make things feel fresh with a cotton comforter and cotton sheets.
This will help you stay cool, no matter what. While you can set your temperature low to cool off, if you want to avoid setting your AC too low, your bedding can also make a difference in staying cool.
Brighten your space
If winter saw dark, rich colors in your space, summer can allow for a brighter vibe, so you stay cool in the warmest months of the year. From white bedding to light-colored accessories and transparent curtains, there are ways to let light in that make your bedroom a more inviting place to feel refreshed during the summer.
Whether you’re going for breezy ocean vibes or hoping to create a boho-chic environment, light and bright always looks good for summertime gladness.
Inspire the senses
