During the summer months we tend to feel much happier thanks to the improved weather conditions. As a result our work and home life seems to be more balanced and less stressful and we tend to get more done than during the winter months. In order to make the most of the summer weather it is important to continue the good vibes throughout the house. Here we look at a few bedding themes that you can incorporate in your bedroom.
One of the most popular themes during the summer months for couples and single females tends to include floral patterns and tree motifs. The use of greens and whites is common with brighter colours such as red and yellow incorporated to offer a contrast. Whilst the younger generations may think that floral bedding themes are for the more senior consumer, there are now some fantastic contemporary designs that can leave a striking impression.
Single males who are looking for a more masculine option can go for various different shades of pastels, with light blues being a popular choice. These can be mixed in with whites or beiges to keep the tone light and airy. In terms of design you could go for simple plain bedding set or perhaps something that entails a little bit of embroidery. Whatever you go for be sure to keep it simple, as too much detail can impact on the vibe you are looking for.
For younger children you could opt for a beach design to help remind them that it is the holiday season. If you have got a summer holiday planned it is also a great way to keep it fresh in their mind and give them something to look forwards to.
Whilst choosing the theme of your bedding is an important decision, be sure to also consider the materials from which it is made. For example it is a bad idea to go for flannel during the summer as it does not breathe as well as some of the other materials available. Instead go for lightweight fabrics such as silk, satin and cotton.
There are a few other alternations that you can make in your bedding that will compliment your new bedding theme. One idea is to change the curtains to match the bed set, or just install some that allow more light to enter the room. Another idea is to go for a new lightshade or lampshade. Our final suggestion is to add a vase of fresh flowers that can add some aesthetic appeal and also provide a summer aroma.
