Since I’ve been getting serious about saving money to (finally) buy my own home, I’ve been thinking about interior design a LOT. That means a lot of time scrolling through Pinterest and lusting after some of the incredible designs. Interior design is such an incredible way to express yourself and make your space truly how you want it so its safe to say I am SO excited to eventually decorate my own place. If you’re like me and love a bit of interior design, you might be interest in today’s post about a Summer bedroom transformation!
I think the concept of transforming a room depending on the season is really cool. If I had the time or the patience to do this on a more regular basis, I absolutely would. Or perhaps I can do that with my garden office which is getting built this Summer!
And Summer is a great season to get creative with your interior decor because there’s so many gorgeous options to choose from and routes you can go down with a theme / colour scheme and more. I’d quite like to wake up every morning in a coastal themed room and image I’m waking up in a cute little beach house somewhere tropical.
But of course that’s not an option for me – or most of us for that matter! – so we’ll have to stick to a Summer bedroom transformation in our own homes instead. Which can definitely still be a lot of fun!
Ready for your Summer bedroom transformation? Here are 5 interior ideas for you to try:
Think about your colour scheme
Switching up your colour scheme is a really easy but effective way to give any room a transformation it deserves. From wall paint to curtains to the decor you have scattered around, everything can play a part in your room’s colour scheme. For Summer, some great colour schemes to consider are:
Cream with pops of bright and vibrant colours
White or cream is always a good colour choice but to really go with the Summer vibe, it looks amazing when you add in pops of bright and vibrant colours to your room. These splashes of colour can be in throw pillows or prints on the wall.
Light, white and airy
A great option for Summer, especially due to the weather. The light, white, and airy interior of a room will make things feel more calming and provide a clean base to your bedroom design. To make a white room more interesting, mix it up with different textures and materials. If you naturally have a fairly dark room, then using lighting will help with this too. You can try table lamps or gorgeous natural wicker pendant lamps, like those from Kouboo.
I love a soothing blue and this is a great choice for a Summer bedroom transformation. Of course the blue is associated with the blue sky and the sea – both predominant features of Summer and blue is also an incredibly soothing colour. This design can also be complimented with a Grey divan bed.
Go for a theme in your Summer bedroom transformation
As well as a colour scheme, you might also want to go for an entire theme for your Summer bedroom transformation. Think a nautical, coastal, tropical or a Moroccan themed interior, which are all great options for Summer! Creating an entire theme for your Summber bedroom transformation can be so much fun and really get the creative juices flowing!
Home decor for your bedroom transformation
As well as the big things like furniture, flooring, walls and windows, the little pieces of home decor can also make a huge difference in transforming your bedroom this Summer. And let’s face it, we ALL love to go shopping for home decor items, so this part of your transformation process could be really fun. Depending on your colour scheme and/or theme, you might want to think of things like prints, plants, trinket dishes, fairy lights, ornaments, crystals, books etc for added decor in your bedroom.
If you love to create DIY projects, it is also an option to create your own decor items, such as cute summer themed posters. This is a great way to save a bit of money, as you can simply download premium fonts for free or free clipart designs from a website like Creative Fabrica.
Flooring is everything
The flooring of your room can have SUCH an impact of the theme and vibe it gives off. A really dark floor – although looks extremely classy and sophisticated – doesn’t scream Summer to me. However a white wood or distressed wood style floor can be beautifully transformed into a beachy themed room, which is just perfect for Summer. They also make the room lighter and airier – which is ideal if your bedroom is small.
Don’t forget the practicalities
And lastly, I know it’s so easy to get into the design and interior aspect of transforming a room but don’t forget the practicalities of Summer as well. It’s highly unlikely you’ll want a lot of fluffy throws and blankets around when it’s pushing 30 degrees outside. And it’s also worth making some extra room (if you can) for a fan or air conditioner. I don’t know about anyone else but I would absolutely DIE in the Summer without a fan!
