Christmas in our room
Updated: Oct 23
This is the first year I've attempted Christmas decorations in our room. Before we moved into this house our room was always the last on the list to be decorated, which resulted in it being pretty sad looking for years and years... nothing worthy of adding a wreath or tree to. But when we moved into this house and prioritized our bedroom first, it has felt so nice to have a bedroom that felt worthy of people walking into (haha, pretty low standard) and decorating. Even when our living room had hodge podge leftover furniture in it for over a year I didn't regret working on our room first. Our room still isn't finished. I want to add curtains to the wall of shutters. You may have seen on my instastories last week I was debating ordering the custom option for over $900 or cheaping out on Amazon with some curtains I found for $450. I ended up ordering one panel of the cheaper ones and we'll see how they look when they get here...$900 isn't a lot to spend on custom curtains (I know this), especially for this wall which is over 20' wide total, but it's still a lot for me. I'm probably going to be building a curtain rod as well so there's that expense to factor in as well... but you came here for the Christmas decorations so let's get into it! I added two small wreaths to the mirrors in here and I love how they look! These were the same wreaths we hung on the windows in the living room last Christmas, this year I opted to just put two on the doors in the living room so these two moved in here. I used the same blue velvet ribbon I've been using everywhere else this year (the staircase and the kitchen).
sources: nightstand | mirror | headboard (upholstered in performance basketweave natural)| bedding (in flax/white) | blue pillows | lumbar pillow | bedskirt | rug (ivory) | bench (similar) | paint- Farrow & Ball De Nimes | similar lamps | similar wreaths | blue velvet ribbon
The nightstands aren't too much different than they are normally, but the vase has a little faux evergreen shoved in and I love that you can see the reflection of the tree in that mirror too.
Here's the overall room! I added this faux tree into the corner that I grabbed at Target (it's since sold out) and it's probably the most real faux tree we've ever had. I love the loose sparse branches and the trunk even has a brown texture, it looks so real (this one is pretty similar). The sofa and coffee table are hanging out in here, they usually go in the front room, but our front window is now occupied by a Christmas tree (we love how the Christmas tree looks in the window from the exterior of the house!) so these pieces moved in here for now and I'm not sure if I ever want to put them back tbh.
I really need to find another garbage sofa to rescue for the front room so I can keep this one in here. Here's the story of that sofa in case you missed it.
I had everyone vote on instastories to leave the tree plain or to decorate it...I let the vote go on for about 20 hours to see what the consensus would be, I wasn't really in the mood to decorate another tree and I loved how it looked bare, but I think about 70% of you voted for me to decorate it so I did! I lucked out finding two large canisters of ornaments that were great colors (gold, silver, white, blue, and pink) at Goodwill for $1 each.
This is also the first time I'm using a tree collar which I really like the look of...although after seeing a few people put Christmas trees in large vase/urns this year now I am obsessed with that look and may just be on the hunt for large vases now all year long for next year! Do you decorate your bedroom for Christmas? This is my first year doing so, but I have really enjoyed it this year!
