How To Outfit A Bed For The Summer Months

An essential way to stay cool and relaxed this Summer is to update your bedding accordingly.

Think light layers, simple colors, soft textures. Stowe Kitchen Bath & Linens is your one-stop shop for all things bedding to help you create a cool, relaxed atmosphere for the best possible sleep post-beach. 

Number One - Start With A Light Material: Our Ultima Supreme down alternative comforters are a cooler option than traditional down at a fraction of the cost. These light and fluffy inserts from Pacific Coast aim for the "look and feel of down" without all of the heaviness. These bed-starters are hypoallergenic and come with a limited 3-year warranty direct from the company. They will plump up any duvet and leave you feeling cool enough to doze off in total comfort. Think cotton sheets and pillow cases for breathability. 

Number Two - Think Light Colors: Busy colors in the bedroom can actually hinder your ability to properly unplug and fully put your mind at rest. With a soft palette, you can focus more effectively on the isolated calls of birds outside your window, lulling the world to sleep. A white palette or similar soft pastels are not too overwhelming to the senses when temperatures rise. Think cool, think simple, think easy. Add a colorful throw or accent pillow on the bed and drift off with no problem.

Number Three: Change It Up: Summer is a time of celebration, a time that is all its own, set apart from the rest of the calendar year. Summer is here and it is something to shop about. This is the time to get creative, to try colors and patterns that you have never had the courage to display in your home. Think nautical print, bright and bold, even contrasting shades. Try it all. Add a pop of color to your light-colored summer bedding. Switch up your duvet for Summer and store your heavier winter bedding for the Fall. Separating Summer bedding from Winter bedding is a simple way to bring joy into your home. A Summer bed represents Summer-thinking and Summer fun to be had.
