Christmas Decorating In The Bedroom

November 30, 2015


decorating your bedroom for christmas



This year, as I decorate my sweet cottage for Christmas, I am going for a look that is simple and clean.

Nothing fussy.

So, I decided to pare back a lot of what I normally put out. I am making very conscious decisions with my decor and the bedroom is a perfect example. It is dressed for Christmas and obviously so, with the addition of a very few strategic items.

The sign above the bed provides a festive focal point while the garland defines the windows.

The furry throw on the end of the bed adds a little rustic glam...


...and Santa brings in my signature red and a hearty Ho Ho Ho!

Perfect. Thanks Santa!

  1. Your bedroom looks so warm and cozy, Kim. I actually put a tiny tree with twinkle lights on a little plant table in front of the window. It just makes me so happy to see it when I walk in the room at night.

  7. I decorate less and less around the house each year, but I don't think I have ever decorated the bedroom. Your ideas are cute!

    1. Thanks Pepper! I usually add a little something to brighten the room. This year is the most I have done, but I still like clean and simple. :)

  8. Your room is very lovely. When the kids were home I used to decorate the bedrooms. I haven't for a long time. It might be fun to start again. Kim, you are going to inspire me to do better. Those bedrooms have been painted since the last time they had trees in them. I am going to have to give it some thought as to how to approach the new color schemes.

    1. Lorri, you are super sweet. I am sure your home is lovely, I've seen the banners! ;) I happen to really enjoy decorating, the way you enjoy cooking. That makes the house stuff much easier. Good luck with your color schemes. I always say, go with your gut...just like cooking!! ;)

  16. Very sweet! Love the wall color! I have not decorated my bedroom but I have it in my head that I NEED some Christmas bedding, until I priced it! Waiting till January when it will all be on sale.

    1. Thanks AnnMarie! I bought a really pretty red quilt at, of all places, Kmart a few years ago. It was part of the Country Living Collection and I pick it up for a song. I paired it with my year round white bedding and it really popped. I used the shams recently to cover my chair. Perhaps you’ll find a discount treasure between now and Christmas! :)

  18. Hi Kim,
    So pretty, I love the few things you added to decorate for Christmas. It is all so simple and so pretty!
    I love pops of red in Christmas decorating, and love the addition of the Santa!
    Your wall color is beautiful, love it. And the bed, all the neutral tones are lovely.
    I do decorate the bedroom, but only with a couple of things also...a tiny tree and a bit of greenery and that's it.
    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs, Kimberley

  19. Pretty bedroom Kim. I add a few pillows and call it a day, as far as the bedroom goes. I don't like a lot going on where I sleep and we don't have a lot of room for extras anyway.

  21. I think it looks perfect. No need to go overboard all over the house. The bedroom is for rest and relaxation so we don't need to pull out all the stops. You have added just the right amount of Christmas cheer.

  22. I've never decorated my bedroom (as an adult...I always did as a child!) but I do think about doing it every year.

    I keep cutting back a little each year as I've gotten older. I'm down to three tubs of Christmas decor so as new things come in I sort through & get rid of old things. Right now I decorate my front & back porches, living room, kitchen/dining area & main bathroom. Simple ideas like you've share though, would be fun & easy to add.

    1. My kids go crazy in their rooms, Jenny and I let them. For me, I like less lately. I can really see my items and appreciate them without all the other clutter around. I just donated a whole bunch of stuff we no longer use. It felt great!

  23. the garland on the windows is a nice touch! :)

  24. Last year I decorated, removed half of what I had set out and took it back up to the attic.

    I went completely overboard this year - every flat surface and then some!

    We are leaving on a family vacation in just 16 days. We don't fly home until Christmas night. There is no shopping for gifts and no wrapping because we all agreed that time together was our gift to one another. I think I went overboard because I know that we won't have much in the way of Christmas decor on our vacation.

    1. Christmas decor ebbs and flows around here too, Carol. From year to year and even within the season. I just go with it. Your vacation sounds lovely. The gift of family and friends is the best of all…enjoy! :)

  25. I adore the garland on the window and those bed pillows are so pretty! I usually put up a Christmas tree in my bedroom (and the living room, and the kitchen, and the dining room) but I'm probably going to be too busy this year, and will just do the main one in the living room. I might just add a little snowflake pillow to my chair in the bedroom like I did last Christmas, but that'll probably be it. I so wish I'd grabbed more of those dollar spot snowflake pillows last year!

    1. I would love to have a tree in my room, Lisa. I am afraid that my allergies keep me from trying it...even a faux one. I am going to add a holiday pillow though. Have to find a good one! : )

  26. you took the word right our of my mouth! perfect.
    it's what i was thinking. "oh kim. perfection." that's what i was actually thinking!
    well.
    since i live in a former hotel suite... all 525 feet of it! ... my bedroom is more in an alcove. always in view.
    and my bookcase is in there. there is a beautiful red christmas box on top of the pine chest of drawers there too.
    my homage in that room to our love of red! the cozy blanket on the bed is a deep teal green.
    and over the bed is a large canvas painting of birds on tree branches in the snow. for the name of my 'wren house.'
    other than the red tartan cloth on the glass topped tables... and the lamps lighted... i don't do a lot of decorating.
    like you ... i love simple.
    there are fairy lights on the fireplace ... and red poinsettias on the seat of the coat rack.
    and my little tree on the large table when the marine gets back to get it out of his storage shed for me. i have collected little tiny birds over the years to always have on it. and i love them! and now they're especially perfect.
    instead of a tree skirt i place poinsettias all around the base of it.
    so...just lamplight... fairy lights ... red tartan... and crystal tea light holders... that's christmas at the wren house!

  28. I love all of these Christmas touches! They are simple and elegant, which makes a bold statement! As a rule, I normally do not decorate the bedroom for Christmas. BUT, I've been thinking about adding a few touches since our screened porch loops around to our bedroom. If I do, it will be small touches!

  32. Kim, just your sweet, simple touches SCREAM Christmas in such a beautiful way. Your green walls tell the whole story and the fur throw on your bed make it all feel so warm. What a gorgeous combination, and I will not be decorating my master bedroom this year, but the guest room is at the top of the list..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  39. Your bed is stunning, Kim, and I love the simple garland over the window. And all the other simple touches are perfect, too. This has a very Scandinavian feel, which I think you know I love. I haven't decorated our bedroom this year, though I am working on a winter quilt in Christmas colors. It won't be done by Christmas. Maybe next year. xo ~ Nancy

    1. I love the idea of making your own quilt, Nancy. I told myself that I was going to sit and knit or learn to crochet this season by the light of the tree. Hasn’t happened…like you said, maybe by next Christmas! ;)
