Ever want to refresh your space when a new season rolls around? Me and you both! New seasons call for new needs, vibes, etc, and there is no better way to make yourself feel inspired then by loving the space you’re in. This month, I decided to do a little Bedroom Refresh. Our bedrooms often tend to be one of those rooms that get a little neglected since we think of them mainly for sleeping, not for hanging out. Everyone needs a little retreat of their own though, so I encourage you to spend a little time updating your bedroom for summer! A little decluttering and a few seasonal touches can totally transform it into your own summer paradise and be a total mood booster every single day.
In my decor search, I headed to my go-to Target. I have so many Target pieces throughout my home already, and I love how I can always find things that are on-trend, but oh so affordable. With loads of different lines for every vibe and style, you can seriously find everything you need. Here, I shopped mainly at the brands Threshold and Opalhouse. Threshold has a very classic, pretty & modern decor style, while Opalhouse is a bit more bohemian and funky. Since I typically tend to learn towards Modern Boho decor, I love pulling from both brands to create the perfect mix.
Today, I wanted to share 5 easy ways to refresh your bedroom for summer! These are simple, quick, and easy changes that don’t break the bank but really make your space feel brand new. Let’s jump in!

5 Ways to Refresh your Bedroom for Summer
1. Swap out your comforter
Swapping out your comforter is a super simple way to completely transform your room! Since your bed most likely takes up the most space in a room, the way you decorate it typically dictates the vibe/or style of the room. You can go white or tan for a neutral, airy vibe, or bright and colorful for a more bold, inspired design. Here, I decided to go for a Space Dyed Linen Comforter from Threshold that really opens up the room. It’s so cosy & comes in lots of colors. Perfect for any space!
If you’re in the market for a new bed for your cute comforter, I also stumbled upon this comfy Memory Foam mattress in Target! Gel memory foam helps to keep you cool which is awesome in the summer, and can be shipped right to your door. Can check it out here.
2. Add some pillows!
Adding a few throw pillows to your bed can really change up the color scheme of the entire room! Try a few mixed shapes, colors, and patterns. Here, I used this Oblong Tufted Pillow from Opalhouse (love how these look on a bed!), a square white pillow, and a pretty tan pillow for a natural vibe. You can use colors, neutrals, or anything you like!
3. Change your wall decor
Using wall decor is a fun way to create a vibe for a space! There are plenty of options from wall hangings, to prints, to gallery walls, to pretty mirrors! Here, I decided to use a Rattan Wall Mirror. The update took me no less then 5 minutes to hang, and I love how it adds a focal point to the room.
4. Try a light fixture!
Similar to wall decor, light fixtures help to dictate a theme for your room. While they are a bit more involved then a comforter, or wall decor update, it is SO worth it the extra bit of effort to hang them! I found this really fun Seagrass Pendant Light (around $100 which is a STEAL) and love it! It gives me major Bali Resort vibes which i’m all above. You can do one above each side of your bed, or one in the center!
5. Add some plants
I love using plants all throughout my home while decorating. They add such a pretty, natural vibe to the space, and a touch of greenery always looks great. While real plants are most certainly an option (there are loads of houseplants like fiddle leaf fits, birds of paradise, etc), if you don’t have a green thumb faux options look just as good! Faux plants can be great when you want to add one to a space that typically doesn’t get a lot of light, and are amazing since you just set and forget them!

The amazing thing about decorating is that even one change makes a huge difference in the overall feeling of your space. Little things truly go a long way. I hope this inspires you to mix it up and create a place that you absolutely love! I used to feel like decorating was a bit daunting, but I promise the more you do it, the more ideas you have / you really figure out what you like. My goal is to create a space that makes me feel calm, happy, and inspired, and I know that you can do the same for yourself! Thanks so much for reading, and i’m so excited to see what you try.
