Dear Santa I Really Tried

Christmas Bedrooms 

Red Plaid

This bedroom transformation began when I stumbled upon Christmas bedroom decorations and bedding from HomeGoods.

However, it didn’t quite mesh with the blue bedroom walls I had so I painted the room white!

Instead of opting for bedding that matched the existing wall color like most people, I went for a bold move and painted the walls white to perfectly complement this holiday-inspired bedding.

Here is what the bedroom looked like with the blue walls.

The bedroom with white walls is much more versatile and allows for more creative decorating during the holiday season.

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.

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.

Adding flat Christmas ornaments to the wall with mounting tape is an easy way to fill a blank wall in your home during Christmas and create a magical winter wonderland theme in your room. Another great way to add Christmas cheer is to hang a holiday wreath on the wall above your headboard to add a festive feel.

Christmas Decorations In The Bedroom

Transforming your bedroom into a festive retreat during the holiday season can bring a touch of magic and warmth to your personal space.

To create a cozy Christmas ambiance in your bedroom, consider these popular decoration ideas:

  • Hang twinkling Christmas lights around the headboard for a dreamy glow. You can order fairy lights also online and they are perfect for draping across a headboard
  • Incorporate plush, holiday-themed throw pillows and blankets for added comfort.
  • Place Christmas-themed candles and holders on your bedside table.
  • Add a basket of Christmas balls or string lights on a bedside table or fill a glass jar lamp like I did!
  • Place a miniature Christmas tree, beautifully decorated Christmas tree or a tabletop version in a corner.
  • To create a focal point above the bed, hang a festive wreath or add a personalized stocking on the bedroom door to infuse holiday cheer.

There are no better Christmas bedroom ideas than festive throw pillows!

Christmas Bedding

I created the bedding layers by using a red velour blanket, ruffled white duvet, a red and white plaid quilt with plaid sheets. If you are looking for Christmas bedding ideas, click through to this post how to decorate a Christmas bedroom, that I shared yesterday with my favorite Christmas sheets and quilts.

I finished the look with a variety of Christmas pillows.

A simple strand of Christmas garland paired with two red reindeer complete the look on top of the dresser. Green garlands look beautiful on a tabletop!

    1. I love the white walls! Looks amazing! Can’t wait for Christmas this year!!

  1. Jacquelyn says:

    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!

    1. THanks so much! Yes I do like both too πŸ™‚ Ha on my husband. He doesn’t even know he is on the blog today! lol

    2. Where is the plaid quilt from?

      1. This one is from HomeGoods…I have linked several in the post that are similar.

  2. 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!?

      1. Lisa E Hoffee says:

        If you Ever, ever want to sell that plaid bedding….pleeeeeease think of me!!!!

  3. LOVE the new look! Good job!

  4. Judy Scott says:

    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.

    1. Thanks Judy! Yes the blue was painful but well worth the time painting it πŸ™‚

  5. 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.

  6. Love the plaid bedding! Glad I’m not the only one with issues. Happy Holidays!

  7. 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!❀️??

  8. Very Merry and Bright! So pretty! I love the plaid and the tree. The white makes the room look larger. Great job as usual.

      1. Kim Schaub says:

        Where did you buy the plaid bedding? It’s so cute

        1. Hi, this is from Homegoods last season! I have linked in the post to a bunch of similar ones πŸ™‚

  9. Love this Jessica! The bed looks amazing.

  10. Can you tell me what shade of white you used? There are so many.

  11. Wow, and wow, I want these two gorgeous bedrooms. What a fabulous job! Kudos to you…

  12. 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!

    1. Hi Jeri! Thank you! This is PURE WHITE by SHerwin-Williams πŸ™‚ Good luck with your project and you will be so happy once it’s done! Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. Love the plaid bedroom. Where can that comforter be purchased?

  14. Judy Mazzari says:



    1. haha Thanks Judy! Happy Thanksgiving πŸ™‚ That is awesome that you have a FESTIVE bedroom !!!!

  15. Kathy over in North Attleboro says:

    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! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your little refuge from the world! Its lovely!

  16. Juanita in OH says:

    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.

    1. Aww thanks Juanita! I appreciate your sweet comment! THat is funny you have a naughty guy too. lol. Have a great night πŸ™‚

  17. Charlotte M says:

    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!

    1. Thank you ! The brand is WHite Pine. I know many readers have googled it and found it πŸ™‚

      1. 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!

        1. The brand is White Pine. I know one reader googled plaid White Pine Bedding and found it πŸ™‚ I will see if any of them respond though!

  18. Your bedroom looks amaaazing! Although I love both rooms, I have to say the plaid one takes the cake! ooh la lah

  19. Definitely white, very updated look!

  20. 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. =)

  21. 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 πŸ™‚

    1. 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 πŸ™‚ http://rstyle.me/n/b8huvexqin (affiliate link).

  22. 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 πŸ™‚

  23. You have great design style! Love the white!

  24. Lisa white says:

    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?
    Thx Lisa

    1. 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 πŸ™‚ This bedding has generated so many people wanting it! Your are like the 20th person who has emailed me. Fingers crossed!

    2. Hi, the other reader said she ordered it online at TJMAXX.com but it looks like it’s sold out πŸ™

  25. Brooke Barrere says:

    I LOVE this bedroom!!!! Do you know who made the bedding?

  26. Was wondering where you got the bedding in the first picture? I love it

  27. 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!

    1. Thanks in advance for the info ????

  28. 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 ????

  29. Debra kurtz says:

    Love your style of decorating.

  30. Your bedroom looks amazing and so inviting!! πŸ™‚

  31. So cozy and cute! I would love to sleep in that room.

  32. I am obsessed with the plaid Christmas bedding! Can you tell me where I can purchase it?

      1. 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

  33. 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.

    I love the white bedspread with red trim in the blue room. Where can I find one?
