Dress up your bedroom with some holiday décor this Christmas. Whether you prefer simple and chic or glittering glam, preparing your sleep space for the season should be straightforward and fun. Read on for our favorite decorating tips (they’re sugar plum-approved).
Play with Winter Whites
A neutral color palette full of shades from bright white to tan is both elegant and festive, especially when combined in a cozy holiday bedroom. Soften the look by layering lots of textures. We love felt garland, faux fur pillows, and chunky knit throws to start.
Swap Out Your Sheets
Subtle updates to your bedding and throw pillows are an easy way to acknowledge the holiday season. For example, create a winter wonderland theme with blue-striped sheets and snowflake pillows. Blush and jewel-tone colors are easy to dress up for Christmas, too, and can be used throughout the year.
Get Creative with Lights & Greenery
Greenery and lights don’t have to co-exist in a traditional sense. Look for unique places to hang garland, such as a canopy bed frame or mantel. Use Christmas lights to outline a mirror or place inside an indoor lantern for a romantic glow.
Natural textures are trending in holiday décor, and the bedroom should be no exception. Incorporate wooden accents (rustic, distressed, or live edge) with branches and pine cones. Finish the look with a chunky knit throw and miniature Christmas tree.
Play with Patterns
Plaid, gingham, and houndstooth are trending well into the holiday season. If you’re a fan of these playful patterns, try swapping out bed sheets, accent pillows, or even an area rug. Have fun with color and don’t be afraid to mix and match.
Keep it Simple (and Scandinavian)
Scandinavian bedroom décor is simple to embellish given its white color palette and minimalist design. A pair of wreaths and faux fur throw add woodland appeal, while a row of throw pillows in deep holiday hues adds a touch of sophistication.
Hang Décor with Care
If you don’t have a mantel, hang stockings and garland from the footboard of your bed. This look is particularly fun for a kids room or guest room with bunk beds. Felt garland is especially stylish and easy to hang.
