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.

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.
