Today’s stop on our Christmas home tour is our primary bedroom. You’ll find simple but elegant Christmas decor. My goal was to strive for a classic and timeless Christmas bedroom. I hope you love it as much as we do!
Happy Friday, friends! Today marks the fourth day of our Christmas home tour. Thanks for sticking it out with me all week. I hope that you’ve been inspired and have been able to collect some decorating ideas for you own home. If you’re coming here from Lisa’s beautiful home at Shine Your Light, welcome! We’re going to kick off the weekend with a little tour of our primary bedroom. I’m thrilled to share, because I don’t think this room has been this tidy in weeks. Ha! Much like our kitchen, you’ll find simple but elegant Christmas touches in this room. Grab a cup of coffee and come on over!
I stuck with some familiar favorites again this year. I rehung 2 strands of garland above our bed using three 3M hooks and added some fresh ribbon. It gives the room a bit of drama and pulls the eye upward. I purchased the garland at the Ballard Designs outlet store for $20 a couple of years ago, but I’ve linked it at the bottom of the post.
I don’t have any special Christmas bedding, but instead use ribbon and holiday decor that works with our room’s current linens. This room is usually sporting creams, blues and soft green colors. I once had someone ask if I keep our Christmas decor consistent throughout our home. When it comes to colors I don’t. I’ve always felt that the soul of the house is the same throughout, but each room has their own personality. When you discover your true style, you’ll find similarities in your decorating, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play with different themes and colors from room to room!
I almost didn’t put up a tree in this room. I wasn’t feeling very inspired or motivated, but I hated the thought of missing out on those sweet twinkling lights. I’m so glad I didn’t give into my lack of motivation, because we’ve loved having the tree all lite up each night. To keep the decorating simple, I used more of the caramel velvet ribbon that I used on our bannister on several of the limbs of the tree. I also hung silver glass ornaments. It has such a quietness to it that I love. You can find this exact tree HERE.
Due to the height of our headboard and the size of the garland, I felt that the ribbon needed a little more impact. I decided to double up two different velvet ribbons to make bows. I attached it to the garland with a little floral wire. Both ribbons were purchased from Hobby Lobby. The caramel ribbon was a fall ribbon, so I’m not sure if it is still available. I’m sure they have something similar.
Just a couple tree clippings, a peppermint scented candle, and some mini glass ornaments give the dresser just the right amount of Christmas spirit. I try to avoid putting too many figurines or overly Christmas decor items everywhere, instead I like to scatter natural elements and leftover tree ornaments here and there.
Now, if we can keep this armchair clothes free . . . ha! What is it about a chair in the bedroom that draws family members to drop things off? Tell me we’re not the only ones!
I’m so glad you stopped by, friend! Be sure to check out the next blog in our hop – Dimples and Tangles. I just know Jennifer has a beautiful tour in store for you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy decorating!
