Home for the Holidays Cozy Christmas Bedroom


Happy Wednesday, Friends! This holiday season, I decided to do something a little different and add a few festive accents to my bedroom by shopping my home...

I'm not normally one to decorate the bedroom for Christmas but this year I'm mixing things up a bit in each room. I prefer white bedding and usually layer it with pastels, but this year I've really been crushing on red toile. Rather than commit to the expense of toile bedding, I originally thought of adding a pillow or two.

I remembered having some red toile fabric that I'd bought at a yard sale, thinking I might use it as a tablecloth, but when I dug it out of my linen closet, it was actually a pair of curtains! Here's a close up of the lovely fabric....

Instead of using the curtains' rod pockets, I hung them with clip on rings I had on hand, for a more relaxed look. Next, I added a strand of lighted garland to my DIY picket fence headboard.

After decorating with sparkly metallics and pastels in the living room, I am really loving the simple, more traditional pairing of the greenery against the toile in the bedroom. In the window, I hung a fresh wreath with doubled fishing line--my only new purchase for the room and also my only Black Friday buy.

Now for the pillows--one of my favorite ways to cozy up a room and also add instant whimsy.  Remember the tree laden vintage car pillow I used in my kitchen last year, and the home for the holidays pillow I found in Round Top? I often create pillows from placemats, but this time after shopping my home, I came up with a pair of toile napkins to complement my ensemble. It took me all of 5 minutes to stitch them together as a small pillow sham.

Doesn't it feel festive and cozy? A few finishing touches...

...like snuggly slippers and a little Christmas cheer for my comfy chair. I used the same slipcover-like drape and tuck technique for the adorable kitchen towel Cecilia B. gave me as I did for the original vintage pillowcase on the chair's back.

I've had this Hallmark mini tree for years. I added the tiny cardinals and usually display it in my kitchen. This year I moved it on top of the armoire in my bedroom.

Even though our winters are usually mild, from December through February, the area cedar trees burst with pollen creating severe allergy symptoms for many, myself included. I've tried a variety of remedies, but staying indoors as much as possible helps more than anything. My cozy bedroom touches will help to keep me from going stir crazy. While the greenery and other seasonal decor will get packed away after the holidays, I'll enjoy the curtains through the winter and possibly longer.

  4. Cecilia, I love the holiday touches for a bedroom. I don't often decorate in the bedrooms either other than Christmas pillows. I may take your lead and add a tiny tree or something else this year. I think it is a fun idea and perhaps a new tradition.
    Looking forward to more inspiration next week.

  9. Love red toile too and how fortunate to have picked up curtains that fit! I love the tiny red cardinals on the tree too. I have two of those exact trees, still to be put out. I bought a red toile duvet cover with deer on it last year on sale at Pottery Barn. Can't wait to put it on my bed for some coziness.

  14. Everything is so pretty. My favorite is the tree with the little red birds. It reminds me of some of my mother's decorations.
