Christmas decor in the bedrooms always seemed a little over the top to me… that is until I tried it for myself last year. And now I love it!
It’s a little late in the season to be sharing much more inspiration for decor, but I wanted to share this room with you because we finally purchased a bed frame! We’ve never had a bed frame before in our 12 years of marriage. We slept on a metal frame with a DIY headboard for many years. (The nightstands are still my old DIY project.)

And then we got two XL twin beds on adjustable bed frames a few years ago. And ever since then I’ve been saving and searching for a bed. Last year I even made a design board for making over the bedroom. But that bed sold out before I ever bought it. And honestly my design style has changed since then. So, I’m glad I didn’t ever buy that bed.

I decided to embrace the furniture we already had, which was my husband’s when we got married. And I bought a bed that was cheaper and more the style of our home. Yay! I really love it. It just sits around the adjustable bed frames. We just didn’t install the slats that came with it, and it works great! The beds still adjust with no problem.
So, it’s fun to finally share that new item with you!
But back to the Christmas decor. 🙂
It all started last year when I HAD to have this plaid duvet cover and shams last year. I was so determined to get the set that I drove 2 hours one way for ONE sham. Nuts, but super fun!
Last year we had the tree and bedding and that was it. But this year I knew I would replace the art above the bed with this gorgeous Pano Pines art from Lindsay Letters. It’s so perfect and I’ll keep it up there until spring. (I’ll change the bedding back to my blue bedding after Christmas, which will go perfectly with it in the winter.)
The tree is back again this year, too. Although more than half of the lights are burned out. I spent 3 or more hours yesterday trying to fix the lights. And I replaced more than 100 bulbs, but I still can’t get the lights to work. It’s a pretty cheap tree, so I may just replace it next year. We’ll see.
And what a lazy way to decorate – instead of putting ornaments ON the tree, just set them in a bowl next to the tree. Perfect, right?! Ha.
I had this wood bowl in the dining room, but then I saw a picture on the store website with these mercury glass ornaments and vintage style mini ornaments in the bowl and I had to replicate the look in my home. I think I’ll use the ornaments on a tree next year. But for now, I love walking by as they shine with their little reflection from the tree lights. So adorable!!
It might seem weird to have a Mickey Mouse train set under the tree in the master bedroom, but it’s the only place I had room and didn’t have a tree skirt. The girls love to come in here and play with it, so it works for us! (And I hate to not put it out every Christmas. It was my youngest daughter’s main gift – the ONLY thing she wanted for Christmas – when she was 3.)
Everything else is simply leftover greenery and decorations from my Christmas decor stash.
As you can see, I need to add furniture to the sitting area of our bedroom. It’s basically an extra work space leftover from the crazy 2020 year we had. Once I get the rug back from the dining room, hopefully we can add some furniture in here this coming year.

And my younger daughter got a smaller tree this year. All of their decor basically looks the same as last year, so I didn’t take new pictures. My younger daughter’s room hasn’t been touched since we moved into the house, so I’ll share whenever I finally do a makeover in there.
For now, we enjoy the glow of the Christmas lights in the bedrooms, and my plaid bedding on the beds. I say, decorate with what makes you smile. And this for sure makes me smile.
