There seems to be an endless supply of Christmas-themed home decorating supplies at holiday time. And many of them would be just perfect for your bedroom! Bring the holiday theme into the bedroom along with the rest of the home. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go!
Here are some practical tips for using holiday-themed home goods available at a variety of stores that sell housewares and home decorating supplies. You can go very high end when shopping, or just stick to discount and big box stores for many of these items. Whichever route you choose, you can still end up with a beautifully decorated bedroom that is filled with the holiday spirit.
1.) Consider changing your bedspread to a Christmas bedspread. Many stores carry these and online retailers often offer a nice selection. If you don’t want to completely change the look of your bedroom, then you could just add a warm and cozy throw or blanket to the foot of your bed. Try red or green. You might want one of each and “layer” them at the foot of the bed.
2.) Christmas pillows are available at many home goods suppliers. These come in many colors and designs, so take your time choosing and select the ones that best coordinate with your existing decor.
3.) You might consider switching out your regular greenery for Christmas greenery. Holly and ivy, evergreen, either real or artificial will look “Christmas-y” in attractive containers.
4.) At the foot of your bed, place a Christmas-themed area rug. This will add a cozy, soft decorating touch with a “pop” of color that will enliven the bedroom.
5.) Look around for ceramic Santa Clauses and snowmen. These are everywhere at holiday time. You can arrange them in groups, if you prefer. For example, a group of snowmen together on a dresser, reflected in a mirror will be a cheerful addition to your bedroom.
6.) Don’t forget about candles! Fragrance candles in red and green will add a romantic, warm feeling to your room. Many holiday candles are fragranced with cinnamon or pine, wonderful fragrances for a refreshing aromatherapy in the bedroom.
Relax and enjoy your Christmas-themed bedroom!
