It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our home! I’ve been decorating a Christmas bedroom to share with you! It’s cozy and warm and has lots of ideas you can use when it’s time to decorate you bedroom too! Welcome to our ONE ROOM CHRISTMAS TOUR!
I’m so thrilled to be a part of this pretty ONE ROOM CHRISTMAS TOUR!
My blogging friends are featuring one room of our home all dressed up for Christmas! Please visit them at the bottom of the post.
It’s all about the master bedroom today!
Let’s talk about 7 things you can do to make a bedroom in your home Christmas ready!
KEEP DECOR SIMPLE
Christmas can be a very hectic time so we want one space that is uncluttered and serene and peaceful!
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary!
Decorating a bedroom for Christmas should have some decor that nods to the season but don’t go overboard!
Think simple and tidy! Keep paths you walk free of Christmas clutter!
I brought in some packages to wrap and they looked so pretty on the bed I arranged them a bit and took pictures with them. Usually, I would not have packages on the floor by the bed.
CHOOSE COZY BEDDING FOR A CHRISTMAS BEDROOM
It’s fun to change up or add some pretty and cozy bedding to your bed at Christmas!
Add light layers for warmth and comfort. And add a pretty new duvet or quilt to the bottom of your bed!
We are not duvet people. I find them heavy. Instead we opt for a couple of quilts.
You can see the Upholstered Headboard HERE.
DON’T FORGET THE PILLOWS
There is nothing quite like pillows to set the tone for a room. So when it comes to decorating a Christmas bedroom add lots of pillows!
For our Christmas bedroom, I added two large Euro Sham pillows with a snowflake design and a long Mongolian pillow to add a luxe look to the bed.
The citron velvet color lumbar pillow pays homage to the accent color I’m using throughout my home this season!
The pillow that looks like little snowballs is one I bring out almost every year when the weather gets cold. And the cheetah pillows make an appearance on our bed and other soft furnishings in our home. You can see the CHEETAH PILLOWS HERE.
And don’t forget to add a pretty throw to a Christmas bedroom too!
ADD ONE PRETTY ARRANGEMENT TO A CHRISTMAS BEDROOM
If you have the space add one pretty Christmas arrangement to a Christmas bedroom!
Here are some ideas that will work in a bedroom…
- a basket or container of greens
- a bowl of ornaments, greens and fairy lights
- a poinsettia
- orchid plant
- a bowl of scented pinecones
- flowers and greens
I made an easy arrangement to go in the white ginger jar that sits on my vanity. At the base I added a big vintage looking metallic ball and a votive candle.
This room is such a hard room to photograph. We have one large window in our master that floods light in all day long. It’s so pretty in real life but it’s a mess to photograph.
WHEN DECORATING A CHRISTMAS BEDROOM HANG A WREATH
Christmas is all about wreaths, so add one to your bedroom. Hang one above your bed or at the foot of your bed or on the door of your room, or even on a mirror.
Wreaths bring quintessential Christmas cheer!
I replaced a middle medallion mirror with a velvet leaf wreath (found locally) with a silk bow.

USE GREENS AND ORGANICS
When decorating a Christmas bedroom, or any room, use greens and organics! Real or faux or both!
A little goes a long way so use it but with an edited hand!
I love to use both real greenery and good faux greens. It’s a real fool-the-eye winner of a tip!
The seeded eucalyptus is all real and the evergreen is faux in our Christmas bedroom.
Just like all the Christmas decor in this room, it’s important to keep it simple and easy to take care of!
ADD THE BEAUTY OF LIGHT
When decorating a Christmas bedroom remember to add a bit of glow! Either by candlelight (please use battery operated candles), fairy lights of a string of pretty lights!
The glow of a candle or tiny lights is magical! And isn’t that just perfect at Christmas!
ADD A SMALL TREE
I’ve been looking for a skinny tree to go in our Master bedroom. I’ve ordered three trees this season and sent them all back. It has to be perfect!
If you can comfortably fit a tree in your bedroom it’s so worth having!
Here’s a picture of my favorite white tree in our Master bedroom at StoneGable…
You can see more HERE.
For our Tanglewood bedroom I’m going to leave the tree sans ornaments. A white tree lights is all this room really needs. It will go where the little barrel chair is now.
Christmas trees in a bedroom is so magical!
MAKE YOUR BED EVERY DAY
When you take the time to create a beautiful, festive, bedroom make sure to make your bed every day!
It will make such a difference in the way your room looks, right?
Here is a post about WHY I MAKE MY BED EVERY MORNING.
