As much as we love summer, the hot weather can make it impossible to sleep. Don’t let yourself get too hot and bothered at night and stay cool in bed with lightweight sheets. Whether you love florals, fresh whites or soft silks, Life & Style will help you swap your heavy duvet covers for lighter bedding to beat the hot and balmy nights.
Keep It White & Light
Be bound for blissful slumbers with crisp white duvet covers for the summer. White bedding is simple and contemporary in style, that can instantly uplift your bedroom for an airy look and feel. White can also blend with any colour scheme to add a fresh, clean look to your space without requiring a complete bedroom overhaul.
Embroidered floral bedding is the perfect way to celebrate the summer months. Choose a light fabric with pretty floral stitching to create a luxurious space. Or bring a slice of the garden into your bedroom with a soft, delicate shade of pink in floral patterns.
Just team it with white furniture, soft textures and a plant at your bedside, for a boutique finish.
Beach Bedding Styles
Who wouldn’t want to wake up every morning in a beach cottage? Now you can by picking coastal hued duvet covers for that perfect beachy vibe. Blue stripe bedding will remind you of ocean waves and cool breezes, as the simple design will add a contemporary touch to your bedroom.
Pair with a deckchair in a natural oatmeal colour, and hang a beautiful piece of wall art above your bed in earthy tones.
Think blue skies, gardens and colourful flowers when creating a relaxing summer sanctuary. You can select patterns like tiles, butterflies and natural check prints that will help create a wispy feeling of summer to help you sleep better at night.
To create a sunny space, add white duvet covers decorated in large leafy green prints and yellow blossoms. Drape a basket weave throw over the foot of the bed for a final touch.
Soft Fabrics and Textures
Consider soft fabrics and textures that are ideal for changing temperatures when it comes to summer bedding. Some nights you may prefer to sleep with just a light sheet, while on a cooler night, a bedspread or throw will come in handy. Otherwise, use duvets with lower tog ratings, like 4.5 that will keep your body temperature balanced if using sheets leaves you feeling a little cold.
To make sure you’re ready for both, layer the foot of the bed with patterned sheets and quilts to match your surrounding décor.
for Children’s Beds
Treat your little one to fresh bedding they’ll love to climb into every night. Whether they love outer space, animals or Disney characters, children’s beds deserve a bit of fun and excitement. They’ll appreciate a bright duvet set covered in a colourful pattern featuring picnic delights and little rainbows. Or why not let them wake up to pugs with wings for a magical day ahead?
