A Merry Christmas Bedroom

A Merry Christmas Bedroom

You know how practically each time I redecorate the city house I complain about the hideous, vomit colored, out-of-date gold walls?  Well, last week the Mister got a wild hair and oh my golly, NO MORE GOLD WALLS!  At least in the master bedroom but AAAHHH – I am beyond thrilled!  Because I can barely contain myself I thought I’d celebrate by decorating a Merry Christmas bedroom and let you share in the excitement too!

First I’ll show you the maybe-they-were-popular-10-years-ago hideous gold walls but please continue to read the blog.  I promise, it’s not my bad taste in color, it was the previous home owners!  Seriously!

Christmas Bedroom 2017

So much better right?!  Paint color is Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray and I have to say, now the walls look amazing.  I paired it with a Pottery Barn blue linen and silk comforter and paisley shams.  We got the comforter and shams on sale about 3 (maybe 4) years ago intending to paint way back then.   Life got in the way and now they don’t even sell the comforter or sheets anymore but thankfully though, I still like them and will use it as my everyday bedding for now.

The iron bed was a surprise gift from the Mister when we moved to Highland Village about 14 years and ago and I still like it too.  The canopy always makes it feel more cozy and the pewter color has always been a fave.   I added 2 strands of garland from Hobby Lobby and mercury glass ornaments found at Home Goods.  The pillows were from Home Goods as well.  I don’t make full price purchases so everything you see was on sale.

Don’t be afraid to mix metals when decorating.  I mixed the pewter bed with silver mercury glass and a brushed brass deer in our Christmas decor.  And the lamp has a brushed nickel base.

I prefer using at least one or two things that don’t usually belong.  Like this Christmas tree topper.  It doesn’t necessarily have to go on top of a tree.  I’m using it on my bedside table for an inexpensive piece next to the mercury glass tree.  More Home Goods finds!

To coordinate with the mercury glass trees on the side tables, I strung 3 ornaments with ribbon from the top of the bed.

I usually add live greenery around the bed but this year I started celebrating so early that no one had any yet.  Honestly, the faux garland will work out much better since I usually have to vacuum the real needles up almost daily when the other starts to dry out.

Don’t forget when you’re decorating for Christmas that you throw a little joy in your master bedroom.  Usually, that room is always forgotten.  You spend a lot of time in there.  Make is special.  I truly love waking up in the mornings to this new color, the new bedding and Christmas spirit.

Merry Christmas Friends!

      Thanks so much Tuula. I am surprised at how affordable mercury glass is. I love it too. It can be vintage or glitzy looking – just in case I can’t decide. LOL

    Hey Cindy…don’t you just love when hubby’s wild hairs coincide with something you want! (Which, let’s be honest,usually isn’t the case!) But what a lovely difference that new color makes. And like you, I’m all about mixing metals…like the contrast between the warm and cool metals and think that it helps each one shine a bit more.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hugs, Lynn

    • November 21, 2017 / 9:47 am

      Yes I do love those wild hairs! LOL. Thanks for the compliments. I really do love the new color. And I’ve never had the chance to mix metals before but think I’ll be doing it a lot more. Thanks for visiting. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Your bedroom is lovely, Cindy! I love your canopy, too. It would be really fun to decorate it in any season! Have you seen those dangling strands of pearls that are usually in the wedding aisles at Jo-Ann’s? They would look lovely hanging there for Valentine’s or your anniversary month… Just a fun thought! 😉 Happy Thanksgiving to you and it has been fun being on the Creative Christmas tour with you! <3

      Thank you for the sweet compliments and ideas! I’ll keep that in mind. 😀. Happy Thanksgiving

    Wow, your Merry Christmas Bedroom is just Lovely! I know what you mean about life getting in the way. I cut out a bedroom ad from a Horchow catalog many years ago. No I would never pay their prices, so I tracked down the fabric from other sources, meanwhile finding it in different colors for other projects, but still haven’t done my bedroom. It’s called Garden Toile, and now have my dining room chairs covered in the Aqua version, and a rocker at my in-law’s is covered in the yellow and blue colorway. My bedroom will eventually be in the country rose colorway as pink is my favorite color. I also love all your mercury glass (my only piece is a vase that I found at the dump (my favorite store). I wish you and the Mister a happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.

    • November 21, 2017 / 7:38 pm

      Thank you! That means a lot. I think I’ve seen the Garden Toile pattern and loved it. I’m a huge fan of any toile really. Hope you get your bedroom done sooner than later. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Your Master bedroom is beautiful Cindy, and looks so inviting & comfy. Love all the little Christmas touches you’ve put out and the ornaments hanging from the canopy.

      Thanks Florence! I think the ornaments are my favorite part. 😀. Thanks for visiting. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    I love that you even take the time to decorate your bedroom for Christmas! I am a little lazy that way. And can I say I am absolutely in love with those gorgeous cushion covers with fall leaves <3

    • November 22, 2017 / 10:23 am

      LOL Habiba! You’re not lazy, just busy and most of us put the master bedroom last on the list for anything. Thanks for the sweet compliments. Got those fall pillows at Pottery Barn. I pretty much love all things PB. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

  12. November 25, 2017 / 8:41 pm

    Cindy, I love how you decorated your bed with the beautiful garlands and those gorgeous ornaments! I love all your other touches, too; as well as the color of your wall.

    • November 25, 2017 / 9:33 pm

      Thanks Carol! I finally want to spend time in our bedroom. It’s weird how a simple paint color change my entire mood everyday.

    I love how your wall color turned out and all of the touches of Christmas are perfect! Such a serene room!

    • November 27, 2017 / 10:54 am

      LOL – We both know exactly how nasty paint can affect a person, don’t we?! And serene is exactly what I was going for… Yay! Thank Yami!

  14. November 29, 2017 / 10:40 am

    What a beautiful master retreat! I can see how lovely it would be to wake up here. The mercury glass and the touches of blue are perfect together!
