I need your decorating advice

Monday, November 21, 2011

Now that the summer temperatures have arrived, I'm once again wondering how on earth to make my bed. This happens every year when summer rolls around; I want a pretty bed but it's hot as hell and most nights we're sleeping with just a sheet, a fan that goes all night and sometimes even a cold towel over our faces (not just yet, but give it another month or so...).

And as much as I love this floating bed, - which is really the perfect summer bed, don't you think? - I'm stuck with the bed you see below. In winter, it's all made by me flannel and wool. But how, oh how, do you make a bed look pretty in summer?

folksy flannels duvet


  1. Pretty sheets... a pretty afghan... and lots of pretty pillows??

  2. yep, i def reckon pretty sheets in spring/summery colours (if you can convince your husband!) and a crisp white (or light coloured) bed spread :) x

  3. White cotton with colorful pillows would be lovely. If you like more of a pattern (like the lovely quilt you have), I would do something like that but with nice, light, soft cotton. It's summery and not so hot.


  4. I agree with all three comments above... nice light fabrics with pillows to complement. Oh how I miss warm weather!

  5. White cotton sheets,white pillow and one cotton sheet in your favourite colour!? Prob a light-greyish-blue (which is cooling?) or so.
    Wow I wish I had that problem right now. I sleep under 3 blankets fully dresses, with bed socks at the moment: Winter arrived in London.

  6. pillows do the job love!
    keep the cover simple and
    decorate with different pattern
    pillows and different sizes!

  7. I agree with everyone else...light colors and light fabrics! I'm not a big help though, too focused on making my bed cozy for winter on my side of the world:-) Flannel sheets! xoxo
