Christmas Decor – How to Make Your Bedroom Merry and Bright 

Blogmas, Holidays, Treats

Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. The lights, the decorations, the presents, the Hallmark movies and red Starbucks cups! Everything and everywhere is so festive. People go all out decking the halls, but then don’t bother to deck out their bedroom with Christmas Decor. I get it, some people like to keep their sleep space minimal, calm and serene. I’m not one of those people- I’ve been putting a Christmas tree in my room since I was at least 13! You don’t have to go full blown winter wonderland in your bedroom, but a few small touches can make your space Merry and Bright. Here are some pretty simple ways to bring some Christmas Decor into your bedroom.

Maybe you don’t want to go all out. That’s ok. Some festive sheets and throw pillows are easy ways to bring in some holiday cheer. I bought these reindeer sheets from Target last year. How cute are they?! I paired them with the duvet I was already using, two red checkered pillows, a red reindeer pillow and a white faux fur throw. The quilt is one I made a few years ago, because I’m crafty like that.

The other 11 months out of the year I’m not a big fan of red, but I LOVE these red curtains. This is the first time I’ve changed my bedroom curtains while doing Christmas decor, and let me tell you, it makes a HUGE impact! For about $20 you can change the entire feel of the room with a pair of curtains in a Christmas color or pattern. 


What’s Christmas without twinkling lights? A strand or two of lights instantly brings that whimsical festive feel to any room. String them along your headboard, or maybe around your closet door. That’s what I’ve done in the past, but this year I said to myself, why have 1 or 2 strands when you can have 12! I went full on light wall! This curtain of lights hangs from ceiling to floor with a few inches to spare. There are multiple settings so you can have them steady, flashing or slowly twinkling in and out. Best part- they’re only $17 on Amazon! 


Add a seasonal candle, a few Christmas knick-knacks, and maybe a wreath. Things don’t have to be expensive, these nutcrackers I put on both sides of my TV are from the Target Dollar Spot. Or if you’ve recently upgraded your main decorations use some of the old ones to accessorize your bedroom. You can also use those ornaments that people give you as gifts that don’t match the rest of your chic Christmas decor.

Accessorize your accessories! I put a little Santa hat and ribbon on my gold giraffe, Gi-Raffaele, and now he’s dressed for the season. And these sprigs of red berries made my artificial roses holiday ready. Get creative! Two of my favorite accessories in my room this year are DIY’s. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post to see how I made this wreath and Merry and Bright artwork.

I'm the crafty half of It's A Pretty Simple Life. I love a quick and easy DIY and live for a good home décor hack. I like to consider myself an amateur wine critic, but professional wine drinker; give me a bottle (or box) of Zinfandel and I'm a happy girl! There's a quote that I love that says "Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated". My goal with this blog is to embrace the simple, to focus on the small things that bring a little bit of beauty and joy to an otherwise overwhelming and chaotic life. I hope you stay tuned and come along for the journey! xo, keanna
