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.

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.

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.

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. Plaid Christmas Bedroom / Featuring white walls, Red Plaid Bedding and a full spruce Christmas tree

  1. 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!

  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!?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!❀️??

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

  7. 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!



  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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. 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!

  12. 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. =)

  13. 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™‚

  14. 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™‚

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

  17. 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 ????

      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

  18. 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.
