Not too long ago, I shared a post on five essential tips for the ultimate master bedroom summer refresh here. It inspired me to take what I had shared and put it into action in our own space by adding new summer bedding and updated lighting.
Our bedroom has a light feel throughout the year, but can easily shape into the season by adding certain elements like heavier/lighter textiles. It has white walls (you can read about my paint colors here) and lighter color furniture. Having a “neutral base” is my decorating advice for any space in your home. Read more about this concept here.
I hopped online and began searching through Walmart’s summer home decor. I had found so many amazing items for my teen daughter’s summer bedroom refresh, that I knew it would be the perfect place to find pieces for our master bedroom.
Walmart has a huge array of home furniture, bedding, and home decor items and can be shipped right to our front door. Plus, so many Walmart Home items are very affordable (don’t miss these deals too!). I immediately started finding the perfect summer bedding ideas for our bedroom.
My plan was to bring in some contrasting colors with accent pillows as well as more streamlined lighting by our bed. Mission accomplished! Check out the after below. Here are my summer decor ideas for the master bedroom.
This is no surprise to those of you who have been following me for a while. If you go back to any of my bedroom posts, regardless of the season, I always recommend a white quilt for your bed. The white quilt spreads out over the bed and creates a foundation for the seasonal bedding.
I’ve never had a chenille quilt set, and this one is an incredible value (plus it’s gorgeous)! The texture it added to our bed was amazing. Plus it is very lightweight for the summer. Win-win!
A very affordable way to add white or lighter colored textiles to your bedding is by swapping out your duvet covers and pillow shams. This white duvet set I found from Walmart did the trick!
I love how a duvet folded at the base of your bed adds a super cozy layer of fluffiness!
I fell in love with all the pillows I found at Walmart! These grey pillows are such a great summer touch; not only are they linen (perfect for summer), but also have a grey and white fringe around them.
More chenille? Yes please! How good are these navy chenille pillows!
I am head over heels about them, and how they look on our bed for summer.
Lastly, I love a good stripe and with the chunky tassel details, this pillow was the icing on the cake for our summer bedding. Plus, it has all the contrasting colors plus white in one making it an “inspiration piece” here. Inspiration pieces bring a room together perfectly.
While I loved the overall look of our bedside lamps, they did take up a lot of space on our tables. I wanted something that would free up this valuable space but still give us good lighting. The answer? Hang a wall sconce!
I couldn’t resist adding the same plug-in swing arm sconce I used in my teen daughter’s bedroom refresh! plug-in arm sconce is seriously a cozy factor game changer. I love having wall sconces in a bedroom, and this one elevated the entire design immediately. Plus, it was so easy to hang. When we stay up later at night, this cozy sconce will be perfect.
What do you think of these summer decor ideas? We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out, both aesthetically and functionally. I’d love to hear one piece that is your favorite or how you can incorporate these ideas into your own master bedroom in the comments below. Here’s to a cozy and inviting bedroom!
