Summer Bedroom Inspiration

27 June 2018

Statement lighting, pastel shades and bold accessories. We've shared our three favourite summer trends that will keep your bedroom looking fresh from sunrise to sunset.

GD Bedroom

The perfect place to escape the midday heat or a cooling sanctuary to return to after a long day in the sunshine; the bedroom of any home should offer comfort and tranquillity in abundance. 

We've stepped inside Tom and Danielle's Grand Designs home to discover three summer bedroom trends that have got us feeling inspired from sunrise to sunset.

Pastel colours

We're talking yellow, blue, pink and green.

Soft furnishings are an easy way to breathe new life into your bedroom. Whether you opt for lightweight linen cushions or colourful throws, accessories can quickly transform a space.

Recreate this look by layering soft, neutral linen with blocks of pastel tone and striped patterns to achieve a fresh uplifting colour scheme. For an added airy effect, contrast pastels colours with leafy green foliage reminiscent of balmy summer evenings to beckon the outdoors in.

Statement Lighting

Lighten up

A riot of energy by day, a shower of shadows by night. Whilst a bed naturally becomes the focal point of the bedroom, adding statement light fittings (such as the No.1 Pendant or Scots Pendant photographed above) will draw the eye and create the illusion of a bigger space. 

On or off, a statement pendant's interplay of textures, movement and light will always invite a closer look. 

Shop the look: No.1 Pendant Giant in Oak and Scots Pendant in Oak.

Bold accessories

The quickest wins make the biggest difference.

Adding a few well chosen accessories is an easy way to update your bedroom without committing to painting the walls or swapping out flooring. Whilst it's tempting to seek accessories that adhere to 'trends of the moment', here at Tom Raffield we're a sucker for a timeless staple.

Our current favourites include the Harlyn Mirror - a versatile, sculptural piece that brings your room to life, our Upholstered Crib Bench to add a pop of punchy yellow, and our Gwelsen Screen, an elegant steam bent divider guaranteed to make a statement.

Demand more from your space. Make it a work of art.

Just remember that you want to create an uncluttered atmosphere, so keep your accessories to a minimum. All it takes is two or three touches to make big impact!
