6 Fresh Summer Bedroom Décor Ideas | Cute Beltz

We’re not saying that you should completely renovate and redecorate your home each time seasons change but it can be very refreshing to add a few new touches to some of the rooms in your house. For example, summer brings many major changes and you can get some inspiration from nature itself in order to give your bedroom a more cheerful look.

Observe the colors found in nature this time of the year and transfer them into the new interior décor you have chosen for the room. You can also take some inspiration from the seasonal plants and flowers and from the multitude of birds and insects that invade us each summer.

Accents of royal blue, orange, and hot pink add oodles of color to this otherwise neutral bedroom. The tones play out in less vibrant shades on the antique rug, a move that makes the room look pulled together, but also plays up the modern-traditional style of the room.

The barely green walls, white architectural details and a palette of grays in this bedroom allow personality-filled accents to truly shine. While the elements of the room are decidedly eclectic, they are well edited and the room isn’t overcrowded. Next to the bed, an elephant shaped statue functions as a tiny night stand. The patterned area rug adds warmth underfoot and style leading up to the bed.

In this bedroom, a patterned fabric bed frame functions as a work of art. The colorful print blends well with the warm wood accents throughout the rest of the room. Beige and white bedding and curtains echo the look of the bed frame. Scale plays an important role in this room’s design. Because the ceilings are tall, the walls needed to be treated accordingly. The oversize mirror fills the space above the bed better than a regular sized mirror and the large damask pattern on the curtains adds interest to the solid fabric without become too busy.

Strict symmetry makes a big style statement in this bedroom. The two beds are identical, right down to the arrangement of throw pillows and sunburst mirrors above the beds. The bench between the two beds serves as a nightstand for both, eliminating the need for two pieces of furniture. Warm walls, window treatments, and flooring contrast the dark finish of the traditional-style beds. Handblocked textiles on the beds add unique pattern and interest.

Home Décor Tip: How to Mix and Match Patterns and Prints

Incorporating bright colors and fun patterns into your home can be a perfect way to prepare for the upcoming warmer weather.  It also brings excitement, energy, and movement to the room and all the designers are crazy about it.  Experts say that typically, you should have at least 3 different patterns going on in one space to make it interesting.

Stick with a color scheme

The safe way to experiment with patterns is to choose a color scheme.  Selecting a common color palette can go a long way in coordinating patterns. Stick with similar hues to draw your eye to the color – not the varying patterns. However, this doesn’t mean all of your colors have to be the same hue. Try out multi-colored fabrics, but use a color that is similar throughout all the patterns for a cohesive look.  In order to make an effect, you have to use at least three different patterns. If you have too many competing patterns, it confuses the eye and can make your space seem cluttered. The successful way of mixing is to vary the patterns’ scale skillfully – from small to large.  Save the large-scale pattern for the focal point of the room, such as wallpaper or patterned curtains.

Mix big and small prints

It’s impossible to make a mess of mixing large, medium, and small-scale patterns when you stick with a subdued palette, like the grays and yellows here. A unifying color theme keeps even florals, stripes, plaids, and geometric patterns in harmony.

The Role of Fabrics

Fabric also plays an important role in the venture of mixing and matching the patterns. The feel of fabrics helps making the ideal mixing recipe for a pattern-loaded room. In fact, adding some textures is a very effective and nice option to enhance the patterns’ effects. The fabric “package” will almost always include a stripe or plaid, a floral and a couple of solids.  Use those prepackaged coordinating prints as a learning tool to see why the mix works, then go out and make your own combination.

Spring Flower Arrangements

Nothing brightens up a room like a beautiful arrangement of flowers.  Add pretty spring flair to your home with our ideas for centerpieces.

Add a splash of color with gerberas

md_0bd89e9c124749921024114

This bright arrangement of gerberas will look lovely as a table centerpiece, inside or out.

You will need:

  • 25 mini gerberas, in 5 different colors
  • Florists’ wire
  • Scissors
  • String
  • 5 tall glasses
  • Large plate

Tip: With plain glasses, you could add food coloring to the water to match the flowers.

Step 1

Set aside one gerbera in each color. Wind florists’ wire round each of the rest, starting at the top, and trim at the base. This stops them drooping.

Step 2

Join the gerberas together into five bunches of four all the same color, winding the string several times around the top to secure.

Step 3

Fill the glasses one-third full with water and put a bunch in each.

Step 4

Group the glasses on a large plate, and then sprinkle with the flower heads of the five you set aside.

You will need:

  • Shallow glass bowl or vase
  • Large round candle
  • 1 hyacinth head
  • Open tulips
  • Bear grass
  • A daffodil or contrasting flower
  • Florist’s wire

Tip: As you need very open flowers for this arrangement, you’ll be able to pick up a bunch quite cheaply.

Step 1

Half-fill the bowl or vase with water and stand the candle in the middle.

Step 2

Float the buds from a hyacinth head in the water.

Step 3

Cut stems of tulips and arrange around the candle, on top of the hyacinth buds.

Step 4

Finish off by wrapping the vase in bear grass and attaching a daffodil head at the join. Use florist’s wire to make secure.

  Fruits and Flowers

spring-centerpiece-ws

Using multicolored winter citrus fruits and the first blossoms of spring is all it takes to make an inventive centerpiece. You can reproduce it throughout the year with the hard fruits and flowers of other seasons.

Choose a wide, low, clear glass vase or container, so that the arrangement will be stable and will allow guests to see one another across the table.

Insert one type of flower; the largest variety first and a single stem at a time, pushing the stems between the fruits to firmly anchor them.

Fill the vase two-thirds full with a variety of citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, limes and kumquats. Add water to come halfway up the sides of the vase.

Add two or three other types of flowers in the same way at random intervals to round out the arrangement, creating a pleasing shape and a balance of color.
