How to Create a Magical Christmas Bedroom

As an interior designer, I love preparing our home for Christmas. I had never considered decorating the bedroom for the holidays until I stumbled upon Christmas bedding for children while looking for the perfect gift for my niece many years ago. I wanted to find something unique that she could enjoy for many years. Given that children are so excited about Christmas, I thought a festive quilt would be fun. She was allowed to open this gift a month before Christmas, and we created a magical holiday bedroom for her. She loved it and so did her friends. It was pulled out every year after that for many years to come.

That’s when I had thought it would also be fun to decorate the main bedroom as well. Small touches can make a world of difference. Here are a few quick tips from the Christmas Bedding section of the Canadian Log Homes Country Store. 

  • If you are looking for holiday bedding that works all year round, buffalo check and plaid bedding are a great choice.
  • If you have solid white bedding, you can place a festive throw at the end of the bed and layer on Christmas embellished throw pillows at the top.
  • Create a festive display on dressers with small metallic Christmas trees, reindeer, and candles.
  • Dress your room for winter with knitted throws, sumptuous velvet blankets, faux fur pillows, and soft and cozy textures.
  • Bring the outdoors in with found fresh greenery and pinecones and fashion a piece to hang above a bed or place on a dresser.
  • Go with traditional red and green, or hues of blue with silver or white. Rustic browns and tans also work well.
  • Tie lovely ribbons on the pulls of a chest of drawers and nightstands.
  • Deck your headboard with fresh pine, string lighting, or a wreath.
  • Add a mini tree on a countertop or a large-scaled tree tucked into a corner.
  • Add a hand-painted sign with festive typography featuring your favorite Christmas expression.
  • Hang stockings from the bed frame at the foot of your bed.
  • Give your bedroom a winter-wonderland feel with sparkling and frosted accessories.
  • Hang a wreath from a mirror or window.

Add a Christmas Tree if you Have the Space

Nothing says Christmas like a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Depending upon the size of your room, you can incorporate a large free-standing tree, or a small-scale tree more suitable to display on a tabletop. A few artfully wrapped gifts brings in color and pattern and elevates the look.

Add Your Favorite Christmas Scent

Festive scents, whether they are from clusters of evergreen branches, potpourri, candles or diffusers, can help to evoke fond memories. A lot of our childhood memories of the season stem from walking into a home that has the distinct aroma of a Nordic Fir Christmas tree, roasted chestnuts, cinnamon, cloves, gingerbread and peppermint. It instantly sends the message that Christmas has arrived.

For an ‘all-encompassing festive atmosphere’ create a gorgeous aroma by boiling some water with spices and fresh fruits on the stove. Once it has cooled down, pour into a spray bottle and use as a DIY room spray. Pottery Barn also has a wide variety of candles, potpourri and diffusers that blend the bright aromas of Christmas to create scents with seasonal depth and warmth.

Lauren of the Blesser House Blog created a simple and lovely vintage Christmas table centerpiece using evergreen branches, winter berry clusters, oranges, pomegranates and cranberries. I’ve included the two images above as they depict a few of the wonderful scents of Christmas.

Choose a Color Scheme

There are endless options available when choosing a color scheme for a Christmas bedroom. For rustic Christmas bedrooms, opt for festive earthy hues such as natural greens and browns. You can also stick to neutral shades or go bold with traditional reds and greens. Other good choices included metallics, shades of blue and crisp whites.

For a Traditional Christmas Bedroom be Sure to add Plaid to the Mix

Timeless, festive and inviting – plaid is perfect for the holidays. It is easy to bring holiday cheer into the bedroom with a blend of classic tartan, buffalo and gingham check patterns in bright holiday colors. Plaids look lovely layered and also work well with solid colors and other patterns.

Bring plaid into the bedroom by draping plaid stockings over the end of the bed frame and adding a few plaid pillows and throws.

Evocative of a quaint and cozy cabin retreat, a plaid duvet cover can transform your bedroom. Larger-faced patterns, like buffalo plaid, feel more contemporary, while rustic decor calls for smaller check. Try a solid duvet and plaid sheets for a dynamic visual when you turn down the bed. Faux fur or velvet pillow shams make the perfect accent for this bedscape.

Accessorize with Twinkling Lights

Twinkling lights have the ability to elevate any room to the next level – including a Christmas bedroom. These miniature can be lined up across a headboard or at the foot of the bed, or strung around a Christmas tree.

Bring in Cozy Festive Pillows & Throws

A little change, like draping a plaid or solid red or green throw blanket over your bed goes a long way to infuse holiday cheer. Be sure to layer pillows for added color, texture and pattern.

Hang Your Favorite Decorations

Spruce up your bedroom by hanging your favorite ornaments such as garlands, wreaths, stars and window stickers. Dotting little pockets of Christmas decorations around the room will really help to summon the festive spirit. If you have a four poster bed, make use of the structure by adding a garland or two to the frame.

Decorate the Bedside Table & Dressers

It is easy to create a simple tabletop arrangement using florals, pine or cedar boughs, pinecones, eucalyptus and berries. Typically, these are the types of Christmas arrangements used to decorate a dining room or living room table, but they also are a stunning addition to a bedside table or dresser.

As I made the decision to purchase new ornaments this year, I thought I would create a post on Christmas tree ideas for inspiration. Last year I tossed the set that I had been using over the last decade as the ornaments were showing wear and tear. Time for a fresh start! I’ve included a wide selection of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, from rustic and farmhouse style to traditional, modern, Scandic, and French Country. From burnished metal bulbs to hues of blue, blush, jewel tones, gleaming silver, to warm earth tone shades.
