As soon as warmer weather hits, our beds are the first thing we want to make over. To put an end to the tossing and turning, cool, breathable bed sheets are a must. Then, ditch the bulky duvets and heavy blankets. Even switching the color of our bedding can signal that it's officially summer. Ready to build the coolest bed? We've rounded up the top bedding trends of the summer, including the go-to hues, materials, and headboards of the season.


It should come as no surprise, but this summer, lightweight linen is trending. Natural fibers like linen and cotton are typically the go-to choices for warmer weather, but this year, we're noticing more linen options than ever before. This is one trend you don't have to worry about going out of style—these timeless sheets will get softer over time and the more you wash them.

Linoto's luxurious linen bed sheets come in 25 gorgeous colors, and are made in the U.S.A. using fabric from Italy and Belgium.

The Citizenry

At the beginning of the year, we predicted that the rattan trend would continue in 2020. This summer, woven naturals are even showing up as statement-making headboards. 

This rattan headboard from The Citizenry is handcrafted by artisans in Cirebon, Indonesia. 

To buy: $498,


During the summer, white, beige, or soft blue bed sheets are often recommended to help lighten up the room. But this season, we're seeing earthy tones everywhere, like these linen pillowcases from Parachute in a terracotta-inspired hue. 

Look for breathable bed sheets in rich shades of clay, sand, or dark leafy greens. 

To buy: From $59 for 2 pillowcases,


Boring white bedding is so 2019. This summer, don't be afraid to mix and match. Go ahead, pair striped cantaloupe-and-cream sheets with a clay-colored duvet. For a harmonious look, stick to all warm or all cool color tones. 

The good news: Brooklinen lets you mix it up by choosing different colors for the sheets, duvet, and pillowcases ordered within the same bedding set. 

To buy: From $423 for sheet set, duvet cover, and 2 pillowcases,


More people are choosing bedding that doesn't just look good, but is also better for the environment (and our own health). Aizome's bedding is crafted from unbleached organic cotton that's dyed with natural indigo (no chemicals required!). The resulting sheets are not only stylish and eco-friendly, but also hypoallergenic, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin. 

To buy: From $289 for bottom sheet and duvet,
