Every year when the holiday season hits (or, let’s be honest, a few weeks before the season actually hits), I look forward to decorating my home for Christmas. I was excited to find out that The Home Depot can now deliver fresh-cut trees straight to your home for free. Any time I get a chance to save time running errands this time of year, I take it!
My childhood home was always fully decked out. From the shelves to the bedsheets, everything got swapped out for Christmas! As an adult, it’s still ingrained in me to put touches of Christmas in every room of the house, not just in our main living spaces.
When The Home Depot reached out and asked if I’d be interested in participating in the Holiday Style Challenge, I knew right away that I’d be decorating my master bedroom. There’s something magical about waking up to a tree in my room every morning, and there’s nothing better than turning your room into a cozy Christmas retreat.
I’m absolutely in love with how our room turned out, and I’m so excited to share all of the details of how we made a few simple changes to decorate our bedroom for the holidays.
I’m a huge advocate of having more than one Christmas tree in your home. I tend to squeeze them in every room I possibly can, because there’s nothing better than enjoying the glowing lights of a gorgeous tree this time of year.
We got a 6-foot Fraser Fir and I love the nostalgic feel it brings to the room. In fact, the tree is so gorgeous that I decided to keep the ornaments to a minimum. I wanted the texture and colors of the tree to really shine.
I used a mixture of regular warm white Christmas lights and these C3 bulbs to add extra twinkle. I love how the bigger bulbs stand out, and the tree gives the entire room a warm glow that makes me never want to leave. We added some simple silver, white and red ornaments and then topped it off with this star topper that plugs right into the lights for even more of a glow.
You really can’t have too many Christmas lights.
My next step was to add in a wreath on our bedroom door and a pretty garland on the headboard. Layering on simple touches like this can go a long way to making your room feel decorated, and there’s just something about a garland draped over the headboard that makes me smile every time I walk in the room.
Our bedroom door stays open most of the time, so adding a wreath on the door add another festive touch that can be seen from most of our house. I love this Martha Stewart wreath, and I’m always a fan of decor that can do double-duty! Wreaths might traditionally be hung on the front door, but there’s no rule that says they can’t work just as well on an interior door!
Between the tree and the greenery, our room was looking cozy and Christmas-y, but I wanted to add just a few more elements to the room to finish things out. I swapped out a bit of our decor for some things that would add to the Christmas feeling even more. You don’t want to change out everything or your room might feel like a Christmas explosion, just a couple of touches here and there will be enough! I love this little nutcracker (similar here) that sits on our dresser, and I changed out our typical artwork for some festive wrapping paper. Swapping our normal throw blanket with this incredibly soft faux fur option went a long way to making the room feel more welcoming, too. Sometimes things don’t have to be overtly Christmas-themed to feel festive!
There’s nothing better than curling up in bed for a Christmas movie with a cup of hot chocolate and a glowing Christmas tree. If you still need a fresh-cut tree for the holidays, you can order one online from The Home Depot here and have delivered for free!
