As the temperature rises outside, we all find ourselves trying to keep things cool inside. One simple way to cool down a summer night — and spice up your room — is to trade in your current bedspread for one of these fun coverlets or quilts.
You just might find your summer nights heating up in a more fun way!
The reason quilts and coverlets are great bedspread options for the summer months is that they are intentionally lightweight, commonly found in cotton blends and easily cared for in the washing machine (although you should check individual products for specific care instructions). While stores tend to carry a wider variety of comforters and duvet covers, quilts and coverlets are available in many styles. These options are the key to both staying comfortable and brightening up your room for the summer.
Bright and bold
Bed Bath & Beyond is known for its 20-percent-off coupons and huge selection of quality bed, bath and kitchen items, making it a great store to find your summer bedspread. Its Trina Turk Tangier stripe coverlet is a particularly bright find, featuring a green and navy combination of Moroccan-inspired motifs in a chevron pattern. The coverlet is reversible and can be flipped to display a simple navy pattern, making for an easy transition to fall decor.
While Bed Bath & Beyond is conveniently located in most areas, it also provides easy online ordering and shipping. Often, you can ship your order to the store for pickup or place your order in the store and have it shipped to your home, both for no shipping fee.
As a fun and trendy store known for its eclectic style, Anthropologie has a bedding collection that does not disappoint. Its Port of Call quilt is a soft and airy cotton covering inspired by images from the coast of Bodrum, Turkey. Painted sunsets, wildflowers and ships exude summer and adventure, giving a face-lift to any bedroom. With this quilt draped across your bed, packing and jet lag are unnecessary hassles — stepping into your own bedroom becomes an exotic escape in and of itself.
While purchasing this quilt does mean a slight summer splurge, online reviews testify that it results in satisfied customers. The quilt is also reversible, with a colorful pattern on the reverse.
Pottery Barn boasts a variety of quilts and coverlets all year long. If you are looking for bedding that is both feminine in detail and neutral in color — in other words, something your husband will also like — Pottery Barn’s Isabelle tufted voile quilt is a wonderful option. The covering is very lightweight and soft, and it’s 100 percent cotton. Solid colors and the tufted detail add versatility to the simple style and make it easy for you to accessorize with pillows, curtains and other throws.
If a Pottery Barn outlet is in your area, you will be pleasantly surprised to find this quilt on its shelves at a discount.
For the summer months, quilts and coverlets are undoubtedly your best bedspread options. The design is up to you, but a lightweight feel is a necessity.
