It’s officially summer time. The days are long and light and the temperature is slowly creeping up. It’s a time when most of us decide to decorate or change some part of our interior décor. So, what better way to update than by creating a quiet and peaceful space to retreat to at the end of a hot summer’s day?
Bedroom décor can be transformed easily using beautifully cool and calm soft furnishings. What most people don’t realise is that you needn’t change entire schemes and furniture styles to create a fresh new look, a simple bedding set and statement curtains is all it takes!
What looks come to mind when you hear ‘quiet and peaceful bedrooms for summer’? Crisp white linen accompanied by an aqua striped curtain, or perhaps some botanicals in pastel green. It all depends on personal preference of course and what kind of vibe you are trying to create. Some of us like country chic and others feel more relaxed with a hint of the tropics or a simple Scandi touch. So many Catherine Lansfield curtains are available in Yorkshire Linen’s latest collection that you are certain to be inspired, so use your senses in order to discover how different styles and colours make you feel.
So, what’s so important about how a room makes us feel? How we use our home and how we feel in it, is incredibly fundamental to our wellbeing. After a busy day battling the stresses and strains of the world, it’s important to be able to relax and unwind. A bedroom can provide sanctuary, as long as it’s correctly put together. One of the best ways to create a calm environment is to visually minimise. Choose from neutral shades and low-key patterns. Textures also play a big part in creating something that will make you want to lie down and meditate, do some yoga or invest your time in a great book.
Where can you get inspiration from? Have you ever taken a trip somewhere that was so peaceful and beautiful, you never wanted to leave…somewhere that used different colours and patterns? If you have, that might be a great place to start. When you’ve decided on a concept, it’s time to go shopping! Take a look at some of the latest summer collections in curtains and bedding to see if you can recreate that holiday feeling! You can go for a range that has warming Moroccan influences, cool Asian styles, as well as traditional florals and the ever-popular geo Scandi design. Think citrus and blue or try blush, sky or duck egg colours. Oasis and Orla Kiely also have some great summery styles worth looking at!
