Hey friends! Today I’m talking about how to update your bedroom to keep you cool and comfortable this summer. Texas summers, like a lot of places, can be brutally hot, so I’ve compiled a few tips to make sure your bedroom is a relaxing retreat from the summer heat! I don’t know about you, but I like it coooold when I sleep…so I’ve found that it’s important to change out my sheets and duvets when the weather heats up. Using the right bedding, fabric, and colors, as well as adding some simple summer accessories will help your bedroom feel fresh and comfortable all summer long.
1. CHANGE TO A SUMMER-FRIENDLY DUVET COVER
This gorgeous ultra-soft 3 piece pattered duvet cover from eBay’s new exclusive line of premium bedding, Linen Market, is perfect for the hot summer months. Not only is the vine and floral pattern reminiscent of beautiful summer blooms, it’s soft buttery microfiber fabric feels so light and airy. And best of all, this whole set,which includes two king size pillow shams and the king size duvet cover, is less than $33! You really can’t find a more affordable, yet premium quality duvet set.
I have found that eBay is an awesome source for affordable and quality bedding and home decor. With eBay’s new Linen Market premium bedding, their quick 3-day shipping, and their convenient “buy it now” option on the millions of brand new home decor items…eBay has definitely become one of my go-to places to find home decor!

2.REPLACE HEAVY COMFORTERS AND DUVETS WITH A LIGHTER DUVET INSERT
Warm and cozy duvet inserts are a must for the winter, but once the temperature starts to rise, it’s a good idea to change out your comforter/duvet for a lighter, less warm duvet insert…or ditch the duvet all together, and instead use a light quilted coverlet (and move your duvet cover to the end of your bed). The ultra soft premium comforter from eBay’s Linen Market bedding line is a great choice for the summer months. It’s hypo-allergenic down alternative fabric is super soft and breathable.
3. KEEP COOL WITH LIGHT-WEIGHT SHEETS
I like to use light-weight, white or lighter colored sheets in the summer time to help me feel nice and cool while I sleep. The Linen Market sheets from eBay would be a good choice to keep you comfortable during the hot summer nights. White or lighter colored sheets absorb less heat than darker colored sheets during hot sunny days, so they will feel nice and cool when you slip into bed at night!
4. CHANGE OUT PILLOWS TO CREATE A FRESH NEW SUMMER LOOK
When updating your bedroom for the summer, don’t forget the finishing details to make your room really feel like a relaxing retreat! It’s amazing what a difference new pillows, inexpensive wall decor, and a bouquet of fresh flowers do to refresh a space!
Don’t be afraid to mix together different patterns to give your room a fresh and relaxed look. I tried out a few different combinations of pillow patterns with the Linen Market gray vine patterned duvet cover. Using the solid gray pillow (also from eBay.com) which has the same gray tone as the duvet, helps to tie together the gray striped pillow and the gray and white floral pillow. Another rule of thumb I use when mixing patterns, is to use a larger scale pattern (like the floral duvet cover) with a smaller pattern like that of both the striped and floral decorative pillows. Decorative pillows are the quickest way to bring add a little fun and variety to your bedroom.
5.USE AFFORDABLE WALL DECOR TO TIE TOGETHER YOUR NEW SPACE
I bought these mirrored frames for my bedroom many years ago, and what I love most about them is that I’m able to switch up the prints inside the frames often (and inexpensively) to give my bedroom a new look! I purchased these three floral prints online for a total of $5 and printed them out at home! I love the vintage feel of these prints and thought they complimented my new black and white floral duvet well!
6. DON’T FORGET FRESH (OR FAUX) FLOWERS FOR A POP OF SUMMER COLOR
Finally, you may have noticed that I have flowers in nearly every single room in my house. I love how flowers can brighten any space and make it feel fresh. For summer, choose bright seasonal blooms to bring a pop of color to your space. Also, I am not opposed to using faux flowers. Can you spot which ones are faux in this room? I love using realistic looking faux flowers because I don’t have to worry about changing them out every week. And even though the investment is more to begin with, in the long run, faux flowers are more affordable than buying fresh flowers every week!
I hope this article gave you some ideas of how to easily update your bedroom for summer so that you can have a relaxing place to beat the heat all summer long!
