5 easy tips for bringing the festive holiday spirit into your bedroom
What is it about the holidays that makes so many of us go all out decorating our living rooms, dining rooms, and even our front yards with trees, lights, and ornaments? But, when it comes to the bedroom, getting into the holiday spirit is often an afterthought. We tend to neglect this space, thinking that it's reserved exclusively for rest and relaxation.
But why shouldn’t we make our bedrooms just as festive and cozy as the rest of our home? After all, it’s your personal sanctuary—a place to escape the holiday chaos and recharge. If you’re feeling festive, you’re going to love today’s blog where we’ve gathered 5 easy-to-implement ideas that will transform your bedroom into a winter wonderland of holiday spirit.
- Create Your Own DIY Decor
Get creative with do-it-yourself decorations. A quick Google search will provide a variety of paper garland projects that are easy to make and look lovely when paired with twinkle lights and draped over a window or mirror.
For those with fabulous penmanship, consider jotting down a favorite holiday quote or two and adding them to frames on your bedside table. Or, for those reluctant to attempt writing free-handed, simply print the quotes in your favorite font.
Remember, holiday touches don’t have to be kitschy. Sometimes a subtle nod to the season is all that’s needed to make your space feel a little more festive.
- Use a Diffuser, Wax Warmer, or Candlesfor a Relaxing Ambiance
The holidays can be a stressful time, and your bedroom should be a haven of peace and tranquility. Holiday-themed essential oils create a serene atmosphere, with scents like pine, cedarwood, or cinnamon evoking a warm and cozy ambiance. They not only set the mood for relaxation but also have aromatherapy benefits, helping you unwind and de-stress during the busy holiday season.
- Bring in a Seasonal Christmas Tree
Bedrooms are the perfect place to add another holiday tree and, since fewer people will be seeing this one, you can feel free to choose something that brings you joy. If you’ve dreamed of having a bubble-gum pink Christmas tree, go for it! The bedroom is the perfect place to add a little whimsy.
But, if you’re not interested in a traditional tree, consider adding a faux, twinkling birch or poplar to provide that winter wonderland feel.
- Incorporate Seasonal Colors and Patterns
An easy way to transform your bedroom for the holidays is by incorporating seasonal colors and patterns into your bedding and decor. Traditional reds and greens, snowy whites, and even deep blues can instantly create a festive atmosphere. Try adding plaid throw pillows or a festive duvet cover to your bed or consider switching out your everyday sheets for a set with a holiday motif. These small changes can create a cozy and inviting holiday setting.
- Add a Comfy Throw
An essential element for any cozy holiday bedroom is a comfy throw. There's nothing quite like wrapping yourself in a soft, warm blanket while sipping hot cocoa and watching your favorite holiday movies or laying down for a nice winter nap.
Our Linen Cotton Throw is breathable, cozy, and comfortable to use in any climate. Whether you're in a snow-covered cabin or a sunny locale, this throw will keep you snug and add a touch of sophistication to your bedroom decor. Available in wintry shades like Oat and Smokey Blue, it’s the throw you’ll find yourself reaching for throughout the holiday season.
We hope this inspires you to extend the warmth and festivity of the holidays into your bedroom this year. After all, it’s the place you go to relax, unwind, and enjoy some well-deserved peace and quiet….so why not enjoy a little holiday cheer while you’re there?
