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.
Let me expand on that tip; when the larger pieces (i.e., sofa, bed, chairs, furniture) are neutral, refreshing your spaces seasonally is a breeze and budget-friendly. The master bedroom summer refresh tips are ones that build upon a natural base in our room and create a perfectly cozy retreat to enjoy all summer long.
My summer decor is all about lighter textiles, natural textures, cool-toned colors, and greenery. Each tip is a category that helps incorporate these decor ideas into your master bedroom summer refresh. Let’s check them out!
I love having a rug in our bedroom! It is so nice to step out of your bed in the morning onto something soft under your feet. When adding/replacing a rug in your bedroom for summer, I recommend one that is cool-toned, neutral (i.e., white or ivory), or natural (i.e., seagrass or jute). I am sharing several of my favorites below.

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. As for summer, I recommend textiles that are lighter in weight (swap out that heavy duvet for a lighter-weight one) and layer on more white with items such as tri-folded comforters at the base of your bed and pillows.
If an all-white bed isn’t for you, try adding in splashes of blue or other neutral colors such as beige or light gray. I love the look of ruffles for summer, but also mud cloth. See what pieces your eye is drawn to below and grab those for your bedding refresh.

This category covers a wide range of items such as lamps, vases, bowls, benches, and curtains. I love linen curtains and bamboo shades for the perfect master bedroom summer refresh. The combination is not only beautiful but functional too. With longer days, the bamboo shades can help keep the light out in the early mornings.
For summer touches, I recommend placing light wood objects such as bowls and candlesticks on top of your dresser or nightstands. You can also use white ceramic vases as well. Nothing beats a pair of white table lamps for a summer feel in your bedroom too! I am sharing tons of beautiful summer decor below.

If you have been following along with me on Instagram or here on my blog for any time at all, you know how much I love to use faux greenery in our home. Letting nature come in (real or faux) is fun and easy to do! Changing out the plants and stems I use seasonally can have a lovely impact on your summer home goals.
The plants and stems I am sharing below are great for the warm weather months. In other words, you don’t want to be using pine garland in the winter nor ferns in the winter. Place that plant inside a basket for extra yummy texture in your summer bedroom.

Don’t skip over your walls when refreshing your bedroom for summer! Artwork and other wall decor don’t have to be something that stays up year-round with so many budget-friendly options available now. I am sharing tons of those ideas below.
One of my favorite ways to add summer to your walls is through baskets! Grouping together found baskets just defines a summer look. Or grab some hooks and hang straw hats on them. Using a mix of artwork, framed photos, found objects, and more can be dramatic and add that touch of whimsy every space needs.
