When our wardrobe shifts to lightweight layers and breathable fabrics, we know it’s time to give our beds the same summer makeover. And, just like clothing, warm-weather bedding should suit the season and your style. For inspiration, here is our Lynne Upholstered Shelter Bed, dressed in three different summer ensembles.
Global and Eclectic
For those with an unquenchable wanderlust and the eclectic artifacts to prove it, summer requires a neutral, but no less interesting, place to rest. Broad diamond quilting and monogrammed cotton linen sheeting provide a luxurious base with details that will hold your interest but won’t compete for your attention. Next, layer on a few bed-top accessories with eye-catching color and handcrafted finishing that nods to your well-traveled aesthetic.
Comfy and Casual
Would your perfect summer day include cranking up the air conditioning, closing the blinds and snuggling in for an afternoon nap? Equally delightful cream-and-tangerine hues on cool percale will look and feel like a dream. A cotton-linen coverlet provides the perfect midweight layer for chillier days, while a faux fur pillow brings just a touch of come-hither warmth.
Tried and True
If you find yourself craving something light yet familiar, here’s your comfort zone. Opt for something cool and classic, like crisp white sateen sheets, wide-flanged shams and traditional ladder-stitch embroidery. For a bit more texture (and interest) without the weight, top it all off with soft blush tones and diamond-patterned matelassé.
No matter how you choose to style your summer bed, if you find individual elements that speak to you, they’ll easily pair with cold-weather favorites and transition beautifully into the fall.
