Once again, I think our bedroom might be my favorite room in the house. It’s beautiful during the day and when it’s softly lit at night. For Christmas, I only wanted to add a few natural elements plus some elegant holiday details. Our bedroom is a little more grown up and a little less “farmhouse” than the rest of the house, so I wanted to reflect that at Christmas too.
The garland at the top of the bed (close up above) is from JoAnn’s and I LOVE it. It looks natural and simple, not like tacky faux greenery. I may try to find more or buy matching wreaths during the after-Christmas sales.
I picked up a bundle of fresh greenery at the market and added it to a simple white washed basket, complete with curly willow branches. It makes our room smell wonderful.
On my nightstand, I simply placed a baby pine in the white urn and added a linen bow. I filled a mint julep cup with fresh greenery and pine cones.
All the silver in the room looks even better at Christmastime I think!
On our dresser, I filled the wire urn with silver and white Christmas ornaments, in keeping with the room’s color pallete. I hung glittered letters spelling Noel from the mirror with my favorite striped ribbon.
I had to move my little gray bench
from the end of our bed because my poor husband kept knocking over the silver bottle brush trees. After about the fourth time of vaccuming up glitter, I decided to move the bench to my side of the bed and put the basket of greenery at the foot. Poor Matt, he always complains he has to be “gentle” with everything around our house because of the decor. Sad but true. I guess it’s the price he pays for being married to me : )

And I especially love the ambiance our room has at night. So soft and romantic!
