Thankfully, This Bedroom Palette Makes It Easy to Have an Endless Summer

One look at this California-casual bedroom designed by Emily Henderson is enough to uplift even the darkest of moods. And even though summer is winding down, this is a sunny look that can work year-round thanks to its timeless color-block palette, wood accents, and soft details. It all starts with the square windows in the minimalist artwork, which mirror the straight lines of the striped lumbar pillow and the muted shades of the sorbet throws. Then there's the cozy intimacy of the wood bedside table with its gilded trim and the single pendant light's trendy texture that'll still feel warm when the temperatures drop. Finally, those two smaller art pieces make the space feel personal, and they don't take away from the overall design. Don't shy away from bright colors and airy accents toward the end of the year — you can always follow this example for now, and switch out the pillows for darker shades come winter.

Give your bedroom a breezy makeover with these items.
