Transform Your Bedroom into a Summery Haven with These Easy Styling Tips

Elevate your personal sanctuary with these quick and easy summer-inspired bedroom styling tips that promise a beautiful touch.

Summer, glorious summer! The endless hours of sunshine, the beach hopping, the fresh fruit. There's no other season that encourages such a relaxed and irreverent approach to life.

And with the new season comes a new chance to update our homes accordingly. If you're anything like us, perhaps the start of your 2024 looks like a revamp around the home. Is there anything more satisfying than tidying up the pantry, attacking your overflowing wardrobe, and updating your bedroom with a seasonal-inspired refresh? We think not.  

So, if you're considering giving your bedroom a summery once-over but not quite sure where to start, we've got you covered. From swapping out heavy textures for light linens and introducing nature-inspired elements for an airy ambiance, here are the best bedroom styling tips for summer to try out this season. 

Bedroom Styling Tips for Summer

Look to Lush Linens

Never underestimate the power of linen in the bedroom, especially in summer. Embrace the season by swapping out heavier fabrics for linen's breathable, airy feel.

Its natural fibers not only provide a cool and comfortable sleep but also effortlessly exude a laid-back elegance. The crisp, textured surface adds a touch of casual sophistication, perfectly capturing the vibe of summer.

I Love Linen's dreamy range is the perfect place to start to freshen up your bedroom this summer.

Enter I Love Linen's dreamy range. Whatever your style or bedroom color palette; you'll be able to find something in their collections. The French Flax Linen Double Sided Quilt Cover Set in Marine Blue/Marine Blue Stripe ($234) (pictured above) taps into the nautical vibes of summer and makes for a striking yet soothing hue. Team it with a crisp, white flat sheet ($158.10) underneath for a delicious, hotel-like touch and a queen-sized fitted sheet in Sandalwood ($129) for a lovely pop of colour.

Choose from a palette of light, soothing hues, like this French Flax Linen Double Sided Quilt Cover in Ivy/Ivy Stripe ($280.80) (below) to tap into the season's radiance. 

We love the drama and boldness of a European pillow, making it an easy yet impactful addition to any bedroom set-up. We're swooning over the French Flax Linen Pillowcase Set in Ivy Stripe ($76.42)(pictured below) – a fresh yet unexpected riff on a summery palette.

The Audrey Scallop Bedside by McMullin & Co. adds a chic yet fun focal point to any bedroom corner.

Tiny Touches Go a Long Way

When was the last time you updated your bedside tables and lamps? What's that? You still have those no-name ones you nabbed off Market Place when you first moved into your place.

Well, permission to treat yourself to an upgrade because you'd be surprised at how powerful a new bedside table and lamp is to your bedroom's overall look and feel. 

This Audrey Scallop Bedside from McMullin & Co. ($699) (as seen above) ticks all the right boxes. The natural timber adds a chic depth to your room, while the interesting wavy detailing makes it the perfect statement piece. The Percy Table Lamp from McMullin & Co. ($399) (pictured below) would effortlessly blend with any space, giving it an edgy, contemporary feel.

If your bedroom walls are bare, why not consider a timeless piece of art that will spark joy whenever you look at it? For beach lovers, Amanda Tye's Looking Across to Bondi ($3,000) oil on canvas, framed in Tasmanian Oak is a unique piece that will remind you of the gentle ocean waves. 

Or for something a little more unexpected and playful, Red Tomatoes by Phoebe Stone ($1,100) (pictured in the main hero image) will add a fun touch to your bedroom. 

The Pomponette vase from Maison Balzac makes for a colourful and cute choice.

Pretty Posies 

One of the best things about summer? The flowers! Channel the rugged Aussie landscape with a native arrangement made up of waratahs, kangaroo paws, and banksias. Plus, native flowers last much longer than market or florist bunches, just remember to top up the water. 

If bright colours work better with your bedroom's palette, opt for deep blue hydrangeas and fuschia hydrangeas in a vase (we're eyeing off this quirky Pomponette vase from Maison Balzac ($159) (as seen above) in clear borosilicate glass and draped it in a cloak of jewel-toned bubbles) on your bedside table, or even a bowl of floating frangipanis - they're not only aesthetically pleasing but smell divine. 

Finish off your summer bedroom revamp with a delicious-smelling candle.

Evoke the Senses

Round out your summer motif with a scented candle (this Australian Bush candle by Fairywren ($28) would go perfectly with a native flower arrangement, or for something more fruity with notes of melon, pineapple, and honeydew, check out the Good Summer Vibes Canble by Spoken Flames ($34) and a gorgeous coffee table book (Byron Bay by Assouline ($185) is packed with stunning imagery and captivating stories from one of Australia's most iconic surf towns) adorned on your bedside table.
