20 Gorgeous Summer Quilts That Will Keep You Cool

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 gorgeous summer quilts that will keep you cool during this heatwave and all summer long!

 

 

This week we’re supposed to experience record-breaking heat here in California and I am not looking forward to it. Having the air conditioner on 24/7 makes my skin and nose really dry, it wreaks havoc on my plants, and don’t get me started on trying to sleep at night. I tend to toss and turn quite a bit even though I have my fan on all night during heatwaves. I know I don’t have much control over the weather (even though I wish I did!) but I do have control over the bedding I choose. Over the weekend I started searching for gorgeous well-made summer quilts that will keep me cool from June until October. While doing research I learned that cotton, linen, and bamboo are the best materials to look for, which is helping me to narrow down my search!

Thankfully there are many beautiful summer quilts in a variety of styles and price ranges. I noticed that Nordstrom carries summer bedding that is said to keep you cool. Serena & Lily has quite the selection of beautiful cotton and linen bedding that you will adore for years to come, and that’s just the beginning! I love that many of the quilts are neutral in color or come in a variety of colors so they will complement any bed beautifully regardless of style! Speaking of neutrals, Pottery Barn states that “white linens absorb less heat during the day than darker ones, keeping your bed cool even when you sleep in on the weekends.” 

If you are searching for a gorgeous quilt to keep you cool this summer, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best summer quilts in a variety of styles, colors, and price ranges.

Beautiful Embroidered Quilts For Summer

My love is strong for the embroidered Serena & Lily Cortland Quilt “in soft cotton voile.” It’s classy, chic and the tassels add even more dimension to it. The best part is it is reversible, so it is as if you are getting two quilts in one! The bedding reverses to a chevron pattern which is just as beautiful as these embroidered botanicals seen in the photo below.

Anthropologie is one of my favorite places to shop online for beautiful bedding! Over the years I have purchased countless quilts and duvet covers. I love their three-dimensional and embroidered bedding. This beautiful Bajada Jersey Quilt is definitely on my wish list. It comes in white, purple, blue, yellow and coral! They’re absolutely gorgeous and add a lot of personality to a room.

I can’t get enough of this blue and white patchwork Elmwood Quilt! It is made of  “100% cotton percale base with 100% cotton chambray applique.” This vintage inspired quilt is pretty, classy and machine washable! As a pet owner/dog mom, having bedding that is machine washable is extremely important since my dogs have been known to jump on my bed after rolling in the dirt or jumping in the pond.

Have you had a chance to check out Coyuchi Created for Anthropologie Collection? There are so many organic cotton essentials to choose from! This lightweight Coyuchi Pebbled Handstitched Organic Quilt in dark grey is a must! I love that it is machine washable and that it is a darker color. As a pet owner, I currently have dark bedding that is machine washable! This beauty is available in full/queen and in King! It’ll look great paired with solid color shams or with a fabulous print in a similar shade.
