There’s nothing I love more than crawling into crisp, cool, sheets after a long summer day. And summer is the perfect time to break out the pretty floral prints. I use white bedding year round, since it’s the ideal canvas for bed styling to suit your mood, allowing you to switch up your throw pillows and blankets to change the look whenever you want. I typically prefer the Scandinavian, black and white aesthetic, but nothing says summer like floral prints (and my new favourite, palm print!)

With inspiration from Parachute Home, I have put together 2 ways to try summer bed styling, including lightweight summer bedding, summer decor, and tips on how to cool down and unwind on those hot summer nights.

Shop the look: 1. Parachute Home Percale Venice Sheets // 2. Navy Stripe Pillow Cover // 3. Tropical Palm Print Pillow Cover // 4. Hello Polly Pink Block Cushion // 5. Pure Peony Blush Soy Candle // 6. Thimblepress Letterpress Pineapple Print // 7. Clas Phlson Copper Table Fan

Playful Palm Print

1. Lightweight Summer Bedding: If you’re like me, you might use an all-season duvet and leave it at that. But I’ve come to realize that nothing compares to a light duvet when you’re trying to beat the heat! My picks are this lightweight duvet from Parachute Home, topped with the Percale Venice sheet set in crisp, summer white. Bonus: The Percale bedding has a matte finish that is cool to the touch.

2-4. Decorative Pillow Covers: Palm print is my new favourite print this season. Pair it with solid, pastel colours and preppy prints (like nautical navy strips) for a summer bed styling look that is stylish, not gaudy.

5. Floral Candles: Peonies are my favourite flower, so naturally I gravitate towards this scent in my home. Light this peony candle from Indigo when you want to fill your bedroom with the scents of summer: citrus, princess flower, pink daisy, salt spray, tiare flower, peony petals, coconut milk, warm sand accord and musk.

6. Tropical Wall Art: Sometimes changing the look and feel of a room is as simple as swapping the wall art! For a tropical look that is fun but not cliché, try this cute, pink letterpress pineapple print.

7. Copper Fan: Who says fans can’t be pretty and functional? Try this trendy copper table fan to keep you cool at night.

1. Lightweight Summer Bedding: If you’re like me, you might use an all-season duvet and leave it at that. But I’ve come to realize that nothing compares to a light duvet when you’re trying to beat the heat! My picks are this lightweight duvet from Parachute Home, topped with the Percale Venice sheet set in crisp, summer white. Bonus: The Percale bedding has a matte finish that is cool to the touch.

2-4. Decorative Pillow Covers: For an understated summer look, mix watercolour floral prints with chic black and white patterns like pin stripes and dalmatian prints. When you’re pattern mixing, make sure to keep the look cohesive by buying pillow covers with patterns in the same colour family.

5. Floral Candles: Nothing says summer like the relaxing scent of lavender. Check out Parachute Home for a soy wax option that is blended with Eucalyptus, for a calming and relaxing fragrance.

6. Tropical Wall Art: Don’t be afraid to swap your existing wall art if the mood strikes! Tropical wall art can transform your bedroom into a relaxing oasis, sweeping you away to exotic summer locales (even if you’re stuck in the city!) My all-time favourite print is Tulum by Max Wanger, which is sure to induce major wanderlust.

7. Modern Fan: Even with the most serene summer decor and scents, the most relaxing item you will ever invest in for the summer months is a quality fan! Try this sleek, chrome Vornado VFAN Vintage Whole Room Air Circulator when you want to cool off in style.
