Want a bedroom that’s holiday-ready, but still comfy? DIY guru and design blogger Charlotte Smith shows how she updated her bedroom for the season.
The color scheme for this room was traditional green and red, but I wanted to chic it up a bit and keep it calm. I love the idea of sitting up here with a cup of coffee on a Saturday enjoying the morning sun pouring in the windows! My home was built around 1850, and it has big, tall windows and a beautiful fireplace.

Our bed got a cozy winter makeover with plaid flannel sheets. The neutral plaid feels a little more formal and is paired with a luxe white duvet, a faux fur throw and two reindeer throw pillows. DIY acrylic frames above the bed showcase wreaths decorated with shatterproof red ornaments.
The same ornaments are in my favorite new table lights on the nightstands flanking the bed. These lamps are lovely out of the box, but they’re intended to be filled.
Whether a marble collection or seashells or faux greenery, these lamps are a wonderful way to bring in your unique and personal style. The lamps are the show stopper, but the clean-lines of the new nightstands tie in the new bookshelf with the rest of the bedroom.
At the foot of the bed is a stylish and plush armless loveseat with timeless linen upholstery and whimsical Christmas pillows.
Last but not least, the mantel is a subtle nod to Christmas cheer. Rather than tempt children’s curious fingers with a traditional hanging garland, the cheerful red noel marquis lights stand out amongst the other neutral elements in the space. Displayed from the mantel are two sets of hanging glass votives filled with faux succulents. I love using baskets as planters. These came as a trio, so the medium size holds this lush fiddle leaf fig, and the remaining two are hiding newspapers and extra throw pillows.
Many details in this room have stayed the same, but it feels SO much more warm and inviting thanks to the Hayneedle additions. Usually I’m someone who takes down Christmas decorations right after the holiday, but I love how this room is festive but doesn’t feel like a holiday explosion. The updated furniture ties together the vintage, and DIY elements already present in the space and the result is so decadent and welcoming.
