A simple, casual blue and white bedroom provides a wonderfully serene escape. These blue and white bedroom ideas are especially perfect for summer.
I’ve had white bedding my entire married life – 14 years and two days, to be exact (love our Memorial Day weekend anniversary 😉 ). And while I’ve accented our master bedroom with various colors over the years, the combo I’ve returned to most often is blue and white.
Jennifer from Town and Country Living had such a fun idea for this summer tour: a color tour. Each blogger is sharing the colors that say “summer” to her and why. Be sure to visit the other links at the end of this post for more fun summer color stories!
So back to my master bedroom… It has changed quite a bit from what it looked like last May.

Summer Bedroom Decorating Ideas
GET THE LOOK:
Simple iron bed and wood tables
Blue and white stripes for summer
But I decided the space could use some more blue for summer: blue and white stripes, to be specific. There’s just something about blue and white stripes that says summer to me. Maybe it’s the nautical aspect?
GET THE LOOK:
Layering rugs in the bedroom
I have actually had this navy and white striped outdoor rug rolled up in my closet every since we created our outdoor dining area two years ago. I love the pattern and how soft it is, but I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep the large ivory stripes clean outside… so I brought it to a closet and forgot about it. Oops! When I began thinking about bringing a summer feel into this space, though, I thought layering this summer rug would be a great start.
Reversible throw pillows
I then turned around the pillows I made recently to show the back fabric (love the versatility of two-sided pillow cases!) and added an old indoor/outdoor pillow I picked up at IKEA a few years ago.
Shop the house to redecorate
That, a blue and white striped Turkish towel from a few years ago, my little faux olive tree, and a lamp that I brought up from downstairs and the mini makeover was complete. I love shopping the house – getting a new look without spending a dime is always fun!

So tell me, what colors say summer to you?
As is often the case in my home, my master bedroom is a mixture of antiques, DIY projects, and new purchases.
vintage/antiques: trunk under window, clay church on dresser, bentwood table
diy projects: “raw wood” nightstand, blue dresser, curtain rods
I’ve linked the new purchases as well as many similar, shoppable items below!
