Bringing the Outdoors In: Summer Inspired Bedrooms

Floral prints are a hot trend this season as you will probably have guessed with everyone, everywhere sporting floral maxi dresses, tops and even jewellery as flower power starts taking over our world.

Well the floral trend is definitely a summery one and if you’re looking to spruce up your bedroom and give it a breath of fresh air then open the windows wide whilst you change the bedding and add some floral inspired pieces to add some flowery colour to your bedroom.

Changing your bedding if one of the quickest and easiest (not to mention cheapest) ways to add a new lease of life to your bedroom. New bedding will instantly make your room feel brighter and a floral print will bring the design right up to date. Try to avoid anything that looks like it should be in your granny’s house and instead go with a bold print like this McCord Novella duvet cover set which has a contemporary design, incorporating some flower power with bright colours.

Green is a great bedroom colour and always makes me think of blooming flowers and freshly mown grass so if this Samia duvet set is brilliant as not only does it add some fresh green colour to the room but it’s also nice and floral too, bringing the outside in.

You can also add a few pieces to the room to bring in a bit of summer colour and some bold floral prints – cushions and throws are a great way of doing this although you might want to leave the throws until the winter as they can be quite warm, although they will at least remind you that sunshine did once exist!

I love these Honesty cushions with their simple leaf designs and think that they would add a little bit of colour to any room and because they are quite neutral they should work with most colour schemes too.

There are loads of different options available so pick something that works with your current colour scheme and work in some new bedding and accessories to give your bedroom a new lease of life. For some true summer flower power – top off with a vase of freshly cut flowers.

    These are really great eye catching floral designs. We have seen so many modern/abstract bedding introductions this summer I am pleased that someone is talking about the florals.

    Love all the new floral bedding, only trouble is I have cats. And black cat hairs don’t look great on white linen. 🙁 I wish that there was more choice of the base colours. Would love to find a burgundy back ground colour with floral green tonnes. But it seems white is the in colour when it comes to prints. 🙁
