My Plaid Christmas Decor Ideas Around The Home
This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.
Today I am sharing my plaid Christmas decor ideas around the home plus a bedroom makeover which is our most popular decorated Christmas room on google and pinterest this year. Buffalo plaid Christmas decor, especially red buffalo, is versatile and can be used in any room in your home. Plaid throw pillows, quilts and Christmas ornaments are my favorite go-to Christmas decor items!
If you see something you like, you can scroll to the bottom of this post to see the shopping links for all the items in this room. If the exact item is not available, I’ve listed a similar one to get the look.
Plaid Christmas Bedroom
I love a plaid Christmas bedroom! This bedroom makeover started because I found a gorgeous Christmas plaid bedding set at HomeGoods but wasn’t loving how it looked with the blue walls in the bedroom. So instead of being a normal person and finding bedding that would work with my existing wall color, I decided to paint the walls white so I could get this bedding!
Painting this bedroom white (the color is West Highland by Sherwin Williams) was a little time consuming but the best decision ever! Click here to see the bedroom before with blue walls. I love how the white paint looks with the red and white plaid bedding. Click through this post, how to paint dark walls with white if you are looking for tips on how to paint over blue (or dark) walls.
Christmas Bedroom Aesthetic
What is your Christmas decorating style or aesthetic? My Christmas decorating style tends to be classic featuring red and white. I love rustic, woodland and gorgeous pops of green. Although I have been known to share a full Coastal Christmas home tour as well (see our Christmas coastal dining room here). I guess it all depends on the style that suits my fancy that year!
Farmhouse Christmas bedding is also very popular featuring plaid fabrics and plaid decorations.
This red and plaid bedroom is kind of fun right? The gold snowflakes below on the wall are Christmas tree ornaments that I stuck to the wall with 3M double sided tape. You can find the ornaments here on Amazon as well as the double sided mounting tape.
Adding flat Christmas ornaments to the wall with mounting tape is an inexpensive way to fill a blank wall in your home during Christmas. You can also hang a holiday wreath (like this one with a plaid bow) to a wall like I did above the bed.
Here is the bedroom with blue walls below.
Christmas Decorations – Red Plaid
Isn’t it amazing what white paint can do for a bedroom?
I created the bedding layers by using a red velour blanket, ruffled white duvet, a red and white plaid quilt with plaid sheets. I finished the look with a variety of pillows. Keep reading, I will provide shopping links and more design ideas at the bottom of the post.
A simple strand of garland paired with two red reindeer complete the look on top of the dresser.
Christmas Decorations + Bedroom Ideas
Here are some Christmas decoration bedroom ideas that you can make yourself. Filling jar lamps with red ornaments, making wreaths to hang on the wall and adding faux or real greenery on tabletops in the bedroom are easy inexpensive ways to decorate a bedroom for Christmas.
Buffalo plaid or check Christmas decor is another favorite pattern that I love especially for bedding. There are many different types of plaid Christmas themes, Red and white along with buffalo plaid are my favorites!
In past years I have used similar Christmas bedding and created the naughty or nice them below. I love the red velour Christmas pillows! You can shop these polka dot sheets here and coordinate with a white and red diamond quilt (mine is from 3 seasons ago) to get this look below.

Amazing as always!!!! I love them both!!!
THanks so much! Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
I love the white walls! Looks amazing! Can’t wait for Christmas this year!!
Both rooms are gorgeous and done with a lot of hard work. That being said, I am partial to the colors of last year’s look. Merry Christmas…and your husband is a real good sport!
THanks so much! Yes I do like both too 🙂 Ha on my husband. He doesn’t even know he is on the blog today! lol
Where is the plaid quilt from?
This one is from HomeGoods…I have linked several in the post that are similar.
Hi, Homegoods from 3 seasons ago 🙂
Jessica, I absolutely LOVE the white walls and plaid bedding! GREAT JOB! I really think the CHRISTMAS TREE in the bedroom is beautiful and romantic! LOVE IT ALL!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!?
Thanks Karen! It’s super cozy at night with just the tree lights on 🙂
If you Ever, ever want to sell that plaid bedding….pleeeeeease think of me!!!!
Thank you 🙂 I will!
LOVE the new look! Good job!
BEAUTIFUL!!! The white opens up the room. I can relate about painting over a dark color, UGH. I too love the tree in your bedroom.
Thanks Judy! Yes the blue was painful but well worth the time painting it 🙂
I just bought white paint to paint my bedroom, so of course I’m loving your new look! And the plaid bedding is beautiful, too.
Oh nice Debbie!! Enjoy painting!
Love the plaid bedding! Glad I’m not the only one with issues. Happy Holidays!
haha I have lots of issues so you are not alone 🙂
I love both looks but I have to say I like the navy walls better. Love the big tree in your room ! I might do a big tree in my room. Why not!❤️??
yes do the tree! It’s so cozy at night 🙂
Very Merry and Bright! So pretty! I love the plaid and the tree. The white makes the room look larger. Great job as usual.
THanks so much Karla! I agree, the room looks bigger.
Where did you buy the plaid bedding? It’s so cute
Hi, it’s from Homegoods! 🙂
Where do you purchase the plaid bedding
Hi, this is from Homegoods last season! I have linked in the post to a bunch of similar ones 🙂
Love this Jessica! The bed looks amazing.
Can you tell me what shade of white you used? There are so many.
Wow, and wow, I want these two gorgeous bedrooms. What a fabulous job! Kudos to you…
Thanks so much!
I love the transformation; the white with the plaid is lovely! I so admire you, as I spent over an hour at Sherwin-Williams deciding on the perfect white for my bedroom (who knew there were soo many shades of white?) We recently moved, and the bedroom I will be painting was professionally painted the colors of the German flag! So, I will be painting over RED walls that have a stripe of black and a stripe of deep gold! Although the paint has primer in it, I am first applying a coat of primer. Your post was just what I needed to motivate me, as this is our Black Friday project, and I am dreading it! Thank you, Jessica, and happy holidays to all of you!
Hi Jeri! Thank you! This is PURE WHITE by SHerwin-Williams 🙂 Good luck with your project and you will be so happy once it’s done! Happy Thanksgiving!
Love the plaid bedroom. Where can that comforter be purchased?
Hi, the plaid bedding is from HomeGoods and the brand is white pine
LOVE IT I GOT THE SAME SET THIS YEAR AND MY CARPET IS DARK GREEN SO IT’S JUST PERFECT… DIDN’T DO MY WALLS BUT AFTER SEEING YOURS I WILL BE AND A TREE BUT MINE ARE SMALLER BUT SO IS MY BEDROOM… IT’S GREAT.. LOVE THE NAUGHTY HUBBY TOO!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND THANKS FOR SHARING
haha Thanks Judy! Happy Thanksgiving 🙂 That is awesome that you have a FESTIVE bedroom !!!!
Loved the blue, but change is ALWAYS good! The white is crisp and clean and will be super fun come spring as you change things up once again. I may do a trio of wreaths over my king bed! And kudos to your cutie pie husband! I’m sure if you took his picture he has some clue where that picture may end up! 😉 Enjoy your little refuge from the world! Its lovely!
Oh my goodness! Jessica you have outdone yourself. This room is magical just like Christmas. I LOVE the plaid room because it is so Christmasy and joyful. Your Hubby looks so comfortable. I have one of the naughty guys too. You did a magnificent job…I think you would be an excellent person to do staging. TFS the beauty.
Aww thanks Juanita! I appreciate your sweet comment! THat is funny you have a naughty guy too. lol. Have a great night 🙂
I love the plaid bedding and the room looks super duper cozy! I know you said you got the bedding from Home Goods but do you know who makes the bedding? Every store is different and this is probably the best plaid I’ve seen this season. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you ! The brand is WHite Pine. I know many readers have googled it and found it 🙂
I’ve been searching for this bedding! Could you ask your readers if one could share the link where they found it?
The room looks so awesome!
The brand is White Pine. I know one reader googled plaid White Pine Bedding and found it 🙂 I will see if any of them respond though!
Your bedroom looks amaaazing! Although I love both rooms, I have to say the plaid one takes the cake! ooh la lah
Thanks so much Marie!!
Definitely white, very updated look!
Love the white & red plaid….so festive but not necessarily “Christmassy.” I’ve been wanting some bedding like this & now I know where to find it. =)
Hi Jessica, I love the ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’ sign above your bed! Is that something you made? I tried the link you provided but it lead to a different sign. It would be perfect for our entryway so I would love to purchase one 🙂
Thank you! No I bought the sign from Nordstrom and it looks like it’s sold out (the link I provided isn’t working and says sold out :(..) Here is a similar one from Wayfair 🙂 http://rstyle.me/n/b8huvexqin (affiliate link).
I disagree with your husband, This is EXACTLY what any normal, sane person would do. Paint the walls to match the bedding!! I know I would! If I found such awesome bedding 🙂
haha I love that you agree Angela!!! 🙂
You have great design style! Love the white!
Hi Jessica ! I am desperate to find the plaid bedding and have failed at home goods and googling white pine . Do you know where it can be found?
I don’t but I just emailed a reader who left a comment on my facebook fan page that she found it!!! Hopefully she gets back to me 🙂 This bedding has generated so many people wanting it! Your are like the 20th person who has emailed me. Fingers crossed!
Hi, the other reader said she ordered it online at TJMAXX.com but it looks like it’s sold out 🙁
I LOVE this bedroom!!!! Do you know who made the bedding?
Was wondering where you got the bedding in the first picture? I love it
I’d love to know the maker and pattern of the bedding in the before picture. I love the plaid also, but I’ve been searching for non holiday options!
Thanks in advance for the info ????
Hi, the bedding is by White Pine but check out my latest post, I just found very similar pieces on sale and have linked to them all :). https://www.fourgenerationsoneroof.com/2017/10/buy-our-christmas-plaid-bedding-look-now
Hey Jessica, I wanted to let you know that I searched high and low for your 2016 plaid comforter. I found it! They have it right now at Pottery Barn Kids in queen size. Hooray!! I got mine before I posted this ????
Yay!!!! That is wonderful 🙂
Love your style of decorating.
Your bedroom looks amazing and so inviting!! 🙂
So cozy and cute! I would love to sleep in that room.
I am obsessed with the plaid Christmas bedding! Can you tell me where I can purchase it?
Hi, this set is from HomeGoods 2 seasons ago 😉
I found this bedding on amazon under the name max studio I bought the last king I think for more than than she paid it bet, but oh well. they have full/queen on amazon and also found queen on eBay and the Merry Christmas pillow I found on Sierra Trading Post .I love the look .Hope this helps anyone happy holidays
Oh wow!!! I am going to look right now !! Thank you for sharing 😉
Since Home Goods never has the same merchandise ever, can you please tell us the manufacturer of the Plaid bedding you bought there last season? It really is a show stopper.
