10. Refresh your beddingReplace heavy bedlinen with lighter linens or cottons that are breathable and will help keep you cool on those searing summer nights.When it comes to colour, Wilson suggests soft pastels and muted earthy shades such as wheat, taupe and charcoal. Consider mixing up the two for a complex, considered look, says Stead.
Points to RememberA pillow must be able to disperse heat from your head. That’s why pillows with natural materials often make for a great choice. Know when it’s time to replace your pillow. If you notice lumps and signs of sagging, then it’s probably time for your pillow to go. Ideally, pillows older than 18 months should be replaced, as they could be laden with allergy triggers, dead skin cells and dust mites. Fold your pillow in half and see if it springs back to its original shape on release. If it doesn’t, then your pillow is as good as dead.Most pillows can be machine washed; however, some will require dry-cleaning. Wash your pillow at least 2-4 times in a year to ensure it lasts longer. Even pillow protectors can help extend its lifespan. To select the right pillow size, factor in the size of your bed, the number of pillows you need and how you’ll be using them. That said, you can always go with an over-sized pillow to make your small bed seem cosier. If you like the feeling of a pile of pillows to prop you up while you read, buy small pillows that you can layer your bed with.Pros and cons of making your bed every day

18. Artful ContrastAn unexpected mix of pastels and charcoal gray is striking in this popular bedroom. The artwork over the headboard draws the eye up. Notable detail: The sculptural shape of the reading lamp works well with the abstract paintings.
