Christmas Bedroom Tour

Merry Christmas Eve! So I’m a few hours away from hosting our family Christmas, and while scrubbing all the things I usually don’t scrub I realized I never posted about my Christmas bedroom decor. Fail, Ashley….fail. Anyway, let’s get right to it, because this Christmas enchilada soup isn’t going to make itself.

So if you have been around for a while, then you have probably noticed I have never been into seasonal decorating. You would think I would love it, since….you know….I’ve been writing a decorating blog for eight years now. But no, I can’t do it. The thought of putting up seasonal decor has always made me grimace. I think it’s because (and I’ve said this before) we have always lived in homes that are under construction, and adding seasonal decor to a home without flooring or cabinets just feels like putting lipstick on a pig.

Plus I have four kids, so adding more stuff around my house when there is already so much stuff everywhere makes me twitchy. There is also the time involved…all that time putting it up and taking it down could be better spent on a project that moves us toward our goals. Baah humbug, right? This turns around, I promise.

In my head, I’ve told myself that when our house is finished I will love seasonal decor. I’ve never known if that was true or not, but this year I can confirm that I was, in fact, correct. Adam and I have finished our bedroom, it’s beautiful, and the kids don’t leave their stuff in here. So when Christmas rolled around this year I got excited about the idea of decorating the stink out of our bedroom.

So decorate it I did, and I love it. The decor in here is simple, turns it doesn’t take a lot to make an already pretty finished room feel festive. I simply added a few (okay, six) glowy flocked trees and accents of red. Boom, Christmas.

Turns out I’m totally going to become a seasonal decorator when all the house projects are complete. I mean, look how fun…

By the way…the Christmas decor in the rest of our house looks terrible. Look at our tree…3/4 the lights are burned out, and I let my boys put all the ornaments on and never even thought about fixing it.

And no one can reach the top to bother putting a star up there, haha. But my boys think it’s beautiful, and that’s what really matters.

(And yes, that is totally a bone on the top right of that photo. My boys found it outside and thought it would look great on the tree. Man I love boys!)

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

  1. Love your posts. You are soooo real! The bone put a huge smile on my face and kudos to you for leaving it on the tree!
    Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Thanks for this. We’ve been in a constant state of construction disaster for 8 years now. The only thing that changes is the type of mess. I used to love decorating for the holidays and since we started this big project, I feel so frustrated and sad and embarrassed at the holidays. This year I managed to find a way to decorate a couple of more-finished areas that made me happy to look at. For a couple of weeks we had some festive decor. I live in hope that eventually this will be done and I can have a lovely space again.
