Give Your Bed A Summer Makeover!

Time to bring in the new! ~Out with the Electric blanket, flannel sheets and down comforter.

How to make an attractive bed that will not overheat you in the summer months? Take time to restyle your bedding so you are comfortable and reflect the light mood of summer.

If your home has no air conditioning you may want to do sheets only for the hottest months of summer. Choose light summer colors in a cool cotton fabric.

If air conditioned, pick out a lightweight cotton bedspread with minimal batting for just the right comfort. If the bedspread seems to be too warm for you, think about using a cotton blanket. Breathable and light, is sure to keep you cool. If covers are neutral be sure to add some accent pillows with a pop of color or a throw that drapes the bottom of the bed to match your sheets or wall color.

 Another beautiful and comfortable option is a duvet cover with a lightweight insert or possibly no insert to give you the luxurious comfort and style your looking for. Duvets are available in many colors and patterns.

How do you makeover your bedding for the summer months?

  1. Wonderful ideas for warmer months and the photos are lovely. When it gets hot we sometimes use cotton sheets and then a flannel sheet for a blanket on top.
