FIVE WAYS TO INVITE SUMMER INTO YOUR BEDROOM
With summer beckoning and winter on its way out, it’s time to pack away your cosy winter comfort and switch to light and cool summer linen.
Due to the warmer weather, you won’t be needing your cosy throws or blankets anymore. Unclutter your bed for a clean and fresh look. Pack away your electric blanket, or other winter gadgets that kept you warm on those cold nights. Shop our range of storage baskets if you have limited cupboard space – they double up as beautiful décor pieces for your room. Creating an open, airy space in your bedroom will help you stay cool and relaxed on those warm summer nights.
For optimal comfort, choose quality sheets and pillow cases that are breathable and cool against your skin such as microfibre, Egyptian cotton or linen cotton. Also swap your winter down duvet inner for a cooler Summer Cotton or Lightweight Microfibre alternative. You’ll be amazed how cosy it can be without that suffocating feeling of being too hot.
Have fun with colour
Who says it’s only fun on top? Add colour and patterns to your sheets and pillow cases with our Geo Microfibre sets.
Another alternative is to stick to neutral linen, and simply add a pop of colour with scatter cushions. The options are endless this season, from embossed textures and tassel details to bold prints and summer shades of yellow.
Let the light in
Another way to embrace the change of season is to have doors and windows wide open to let natural light and a gentle breeze in. This pineapple print doorstop is just what you need to stop your bedroom door slamming; and add a touch more character to your space.
Invite the smell of summer
Nothing says summer quite like the smell of fresh flowers or the outdoor filling your room. If fresh blooms are out of reach, bring summer inside and shop from our selection of diffusers, with fragrances like fresh ocean breeze, fresh fig lilac and pomegranate.
Although one spends significantly less time indoors during the hot summer months, having a cool oasis to return to after a day well spent outside, is a luxury that you don’t have to do without this season. Whatever you choose to change, do it sooner rather than later so that you get maximum enjoyment out of your space.
