Decorating The Bedroom For Christmas

I never used to decorate the bedroom for Christmas. However, some years ago when my daughter was a freshman in college, I decided to surprise her when she came home for Christmas break by adding a little holiday cheer to her room. And since I didn’t want my other child to feel left out, I decorated her room as well.

It didn’t take much to create a festive mood in their rooms. I bought them each a lighted tabletop tree which I color coordinated to their respective decors. I then decked the little trees with a few personalized ornaments–Disney princesses for one child and musical instruments for the other. I also festooned their mirrors with a single string of colored lights. That’s it. That was all I did. However, those small touches made such a huge impact. They were both so thrilled to have a little Christmas sparkle all to themselves, that it made me think that my husband and I might enjoy having some Christmas in our bedroom too.

Since we are a couple of old fogies, we generally retire to our bedroom around 9-p.m. and then spend a couple of hours reading or watching TV before turning off the lights. Given this habit, we really appreciate that in going upstairs, we’re not leaving the cheer of our Christmas decorations behind.

My first-floor decor is ideally suited to traditional red and green Christmas decoration. But I designed our bedroom in a more calming color scheme of cream and gold. So, in decorating the master bedroom for Christmas, I kept to those colors. Initially, I didn’t do that much. I hung a gold wreath above the bed and placed a few tabletop trees on the nightstands.

My cheeky husband joked that he thinks it would be more appropriate for the bedroom if I flipped the holiday pillow so that the text was reversed. What am I going to do with him!

Because I can’t help myself, each year I add a few more decorations to the room. This year, I included a full-sized slim pre-lit tree which really amps up the holiday glow.

Some people may feel that it is not worth the effort to add seasonal decor to rooms that guests don’t see, but the joy we get from spending time in our Merry Master Bedroom makes decorating the bedroom for Christmas a wonderful holiday gift we give ourselves.

  1. Lisa,
    What a beautiful bedroom! I love the idea of cream and gold. I have never decorated my bedroom, maybe I could add some Christmas cheer too. When my kids were younger I had a small tree for them. They would decorate as they pleased. Now they are off creating their own traditions.
    Thank you for sharing your cheer.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment. Your support means so much to me. I hope my post has encouraged you to go ahead and add some Christmas cheer to your bedroom. These days, when everything on the news is so upsetting, we need all the cheer we can get!

  2. Very pretty! Sadly, I’m still stuck in those “I can’t have anything nice” days. Maybe someday …

    On a side note: Maybe your husband should write a guest post about creative ways to repurpose Christmas decorations to use them all year long. 😉

    1. Thank you for your kind comment. As for having my husband write a guest post, I shudder to think what other “creative” suggestions he would come up with.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment. I wish I had access to livestock I could feed my pumpkins to. I bought so many pumpkins this year that I still have some in my garage. I have been putting them in the garbage can a few at a time because they make the can too heavy. Hopefully, I will be able to get rid of all of them by New Years!

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. I agree with you that there is something special about having a Christmas tree in the bedroom. Have a very merry Christmas!

  3. Your bedroom is beautiful, love your cream and gold Christmas tree! And you’re right, a few touches is all that’s needed to bring holiday cheer to the bedrooms! ❤

  4. Beautiful! I don’t decorate my bedroom, but I think about doing it every year. Maybe next year! Right now I have empty boxes from the decorations in the bedroom. Too lazy to put them away!

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. I’ve got empty boxes from my decorations, plus unwrapped Christmas gifts all over the floor in my guest room. I will have to clean it up soon because my mother is staying with us over Christmas. Oh well, one thing at a time. Have a very Merry Christmas!
