Today, we’re sharing simple Christmas bedroom inspiration!
In all honesty, I can’t say we make decorating the bedrooms for Christmas a priority this time of year. We’re usually doing good to get the common areas decorated, the tree up, the porches pulled together and all the gifts wrapped and shipped in time.
But one of my aunts suggested we all try decorating at least one bedroom for the holiday season way back in October.
So, I decided to give it a go.
Finding a Piece of Fabric for Inspiration
Before we left for Thanksgiving, you may remember we created this simple bed scarf from fabric we found on sale at our local Joann Store.
This piece of fabric pretty much set the tone for our entire Christmas color palette and decorating scheme.
It feels festive and neutral all at the same time.
You guys know how much I love white and if it were solely up to me, I would have a white or blush inspired Christmas every year 😊
But since it’s not just up to me, this seemed like a totally doable compromise.
Adding Festive Touches to the Nightstands
We try to keep things as simple as possible on the nightstand to save room for glasses and other nighttime essentials like water.
This framed chalkboard has been used all over the house in various places. Most recently, in my office, The Crowned Goat Cottage.
I try to reuse as much of our old Christmas decor as I can because we have almost no storage space.
These wreaths were part of our rustic-inspired Christmas a few years ago. I love the red berries with a little bit of “snow.”
Keeping it Simple on the Dresser
We gave this dresser a makeover as part of the One Room Challenge several years ago. The black was such an elegant change!
It really didn’t need a lot of decorating – just a few simple touches.
Christmas Bedroom Inspiration Ideas: Creating a Seating Area
One of our priorities during that project was to create a seating area in the bedroom to give it a bit of a lounge feel.
I can honestly say, it was one of the best decisions we made! This area is used every day now.
I wish you guys could feel how soft this red throw is. Oh, my word, it’s like snuggling up with a bunny!
Throws like this are such an easy way to add color and texture to your Christmas bedroom during the holiday season.
I’m frequently asked about the sconces we installed behind the headboard.
They were such an easy add! It really gave us a lot of value for very little money. And we use them nearly every day.
Have you guys finished wrapping all of your presents yet?
I’m still waiting on a few things I ordered to arrive. And I have a couple of stocking stuffer items to pick up too.
Despite all the hustle and bustle, I’m thankful for a place to be able to relax and unwind at the end of the day.
And while I might not go all out with Christmas bedroom inspiration every year, I’m thankful this year my aunt talked me into it 😊
I hope you’ve enjoyed this bit of Christmas bedroom inspiration. Do you decorate your bedroom for Christmas or just decorate the common areas? Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
