Tips on How to Makeover Your Room for summer

This summer, we know you’ll be spending a lot of your time outdoors (hello beach!). But we think your bedroom could use a little love too. As you shed your cardigans for sundresses and give your wardrobe a summer makeover, take a look at your bedroom. Chances are, it could use a bit of warm-weather flair as well. That’s right! It’s time for a complete bedroom makeover!
If you’re not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve done all the heavy lifting for you. Below are 10 creative decorating and organizing ideas to help you bring a little life to your bedroom this summer.

DE-CLUTTER AND CONDENSE

Throughout the busy months of winter and early spring, clutter can pile up. Clutter and disorganization can cause stress and anxiety, inhibit creativeness and make it difficult to relax.
Take a look at your room to see if there is anything you can get rid of or put into storage during the warmer months. Using a stylish shelf or hanging organizer is another great way to clean up the clutter and free up space.

A vintage trunk is a great way to store your winter bedding and curtains and adds an extra seat or side table for your room.

USE BRIGHT COLORS

Simply changing your color scheme can make a huge difference in the feel of your room.
While dark purples and silvers are perfect for a wintertime bedroom, bright or pale colors can create a more summery atmosphere. Mint and coral are popular decorating colors this season. Repaint your dresser or add some colorful throw pillows to your bed and voila, instant bedroom face lift!

LET THE LIGHT IN

Look for ways you can let in natural light to the room. Swap heavy, dark curtains for sheer, natural window treatments to let in light while keeping heat out or hanging mirrors in your room.
Mirrors reflect natural light instead of absorbing it. You can use a mirrored table, or using a beautiful mirrored tray to hold your favorite reads of the season. For any size room, a large accent mirror can make it look bigger and reflect light around the space.

SLEEP IN SUMMERY SERENITY

Pack away the heavy blankets and flannel sheets. Science has proved that most people sleep better in cooler temperatures.
Thick comforters and blankets can trap heat and make you uncomfortable, so deck your bed with lightweight, breathable materials.
If you like the “weight” of a blanket over you (like everyone here at home!) look for coverlets like this one from Pottery Barn.

CREATE A NEW SPACE

Bedrooms aren’t just for sleeping. Even with a small room you can create a small space for reading, working or enjoying a cup of coffee.
Choose a corner or blank wall in your room to put a chair and small side table or a comfy loveseat, depending on the size of your room. Add a bookcase to create a private personal library or a small stand to arrange teas and coffees. Your room should be a place you want to be in all the time, not just when it’s time to hit the hay.

BRING THE OUTDOORS IN

Everyone wants to be outdoors when the weather is warm.
Bring an outdoor element to your bedroom decor, such as putting fresh-cut flowers in a watering can, adding a natural wood night stand or bringing in a vintage patio chair to put in the corner.
