A Touch of Christmas in the Master Bedroom

Today I’m participating in the bHome Christmas tour along with lots of other talented ladies so I hope you’ll be sure and hop over and visit their homes when you’re finished visiting me! And there’s also a wonderful giveaway at the end of the post, so be sure and check it out!

What I’m sharing with you today is A Touch of Christmas that we added to the master bedroom. To be quite honest, after the week of emotional highs and lows we had over Thanksgiving, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to do any decorating at all, but I had committed to doing several blog posts centered around Christmas, and I was determined that I would honor those. And just maybe, along the way, I would feel some of that Christmas spirit sinking in.

I had already decorated the family room very simply, just adding some very natural  elements, using what I could find. I didn’t even hang ornaments on the family room tree, and I ended up loving the simplicity of it. Next up was the master bedroom, a room that I normally don’t decorate for the holidays. I wanted to do something different in here, since the master bedroom had been newly renovated this year, and it was such a nice, large room with a beautiful curved, bank of windows on the front.

I wasn’t sure what direction I was going in but when I found an old abandoned Christmas tree in our attic, left by the previous owners, I decided to bring it down and try flocking it for a “snowy” look.

The old faux tree was really a great little tree to use for this project, and surprisingly all of the pieces were still there, including the stand. It was a smaller size tree, and once I moved some of the furniture around, it worked perfectly in front of the windows.

I had a gorgeous old basket that I bought a few years ago at Scott Antique Market in Atlanta. I was hoping that the tree’s stand would fit down into the bottom of this basket, and luckily it did!

For many years, when I was growing up, we had “snowy” Christmas trees. My mama adored a flocked tree, and one day I will have to share with you, all the interesting {and sometimes crazy} ways that she achieved this beautiful “snowy” effect. Let’s just say that mama was very creative in her flocking processes, but the end result was always gorgeous! This little tree brought back such fond memories of those white childhood trees, and the lengths mama went to, in order to get the look! Some of them were worthy of Macy’s holiday windows!

For this tree, I used a flocking spray that I found at the home decor store and it was really easy to use. Just spray, let dry, and then decorate. It wasn’t a heavy coating though, and I really wanted the look of some heavy “snow” in places. So I pulled out some old upholstery batting that I had stored away, and taking small pieces at a time, I shred them into small “feathery” poofs, then I just poked them in among the branches.

Luckily, the old tree stand was a perfect fit for the basket and I love the way it looks in it. I added white lights, and blue, white, and gold ornaments, to tie in the colors in the rest of the master bedroom. I love the end result and instead of this old tree getting thrown out, I’m excited to save it for use again next year.

I also brought in some of the fresh greenery clippings that we had picked up at the tree lot and placed some of the garland over the old antique mirrors that hang over the bed, along with a handmade banner of one of my favorite Christmas songs. I printed the letters on sheets from an old book….the letters aren’t quite uniform…I was doing this in a hurry and late at night…oh, well…it still looks cute! I punched holes in the top of each page and strung jute twine through them and draped the banner across the mirrors.

I also added a few gold, glittery stars to the banner….those stars {along with a few other beautiful things!} were sent to me a few days ago by a dear blog friend. What a wonderful, kind, surprise they were, brightening my day…….and they are exactly what this banner needed!

I poked some snippets of evergreen underneath the moss balls on the altar candlesticks, and inside the empty sockets of the old French cherub chandelier. Placing a few vintage ornaments on the table gives it instant holiday cheer!

I also took some of the fresh clippings and made small wreaths and hung them on the doors of our master bedroom‘s built in cabinets. They turned out so cute, hung with burlap ribbon, and they were so easy to make, tying them together with a little bit of floral wire.

Also sitting in our attic was this small metallic, silver tree that I bought last year and never used. So I placed it on the bedside table. The sparkle of the metallic silver ties in perfectly, and all I did was add a few sprigs of evergreen to an ironstone jar, and another vintage ornament to the table.

The other bedside table didn’t get much, a little ornament and a small package wrapped in silver paper. One of my big cement lambs resides on that table, so there isn’t a lot of room to add more.

See him peeking at the tree? In case you’re wondering if there is a sheep obsession….why, yes there is!

I brought in a few boxwood wreaths from another room in the house, and placed them here and there. I love preserved boxwood wreaths and keep them displayed all year long. They’re perfect in any room, for any decor, and any occasion.

  1. Such an inviting room, how do you ever leave it in the mornings, but no doubt the rest of your home is just as lovely…..making me revisit thoughts of changing our bedroom color from a dark chocolate brown to a blueish/greenish/grayish shade closer to what you’ve chosen here. Are those 3 graces lamps on your bedside tables? I have a similar one in our bedroom, a gift from a sister, seeing your’s makes me think I have good taste, ha!
    Susanne.

    • Thank you Susanne! Yes, those are the Three Graces lamps! One belonged to my precious mother in law {Evelyn}, and I finally found a matching one several years ago at a flea market! Love them!

  2. I love the soft colors you’ve used in the bedroom, and the flocked tree is perfect! I remember my mother saying they used a mixture of whipped ivory soap and something else to flock the trees when she was young. They’d mix it with the old fashioned hand – cranked beater! Such a fun memory!

  3. There are only a few blogs that I visit and just SIGH and SWOON and yours is one of them for sure. Your master is gorgeous. I am posting my master tomorrow and it can’t compare one bit with yours! What a lucky find with the tree!!! I am guessing you sprayed it with the faux snow spray? Love the little “snow puffs” too! Everything is heavenly!!!!!!!

  4. I’m so so sorry for the loss of your pet – my heart and thoughts go to you! YOu’ve created such a stunning holiday bedroom – it’s so serene and gorgeous. xo Heather

  5. Well, when you have the best creativity person what else do you expect…..JUST GORGEOUS!!!!!!! This bedroom is so beautiful as well as the other rooms you have decorated. Love the tree in the basket.

  6. Cindy, I think your master bedroom is my favorite of all your rooms so far. Your tree is so beautiful and blends in with your decor so beautifully. What a great find in your attic!

  10. It’s all been said!!! Fabulous! Your talent is exquisite….please come to my house in California….I have stuff, I need you!

  11. Oh there is that “sigh” again….gazing at your most beautiful images of your bedroom. The salvaged tree from the attic looks so exquisite…it was so nice to read about how your mom wanted to provide a most beautiful tree for your family….and she passed her inspiration down to you. The basket is perfect for the tree like they were truly meant to be together!….Have a most wonderful weekend Cindy, enjoying the beauty and serenity of your home.

  12. This is sooooo gorgeous and inspiring Cindy! I am always in awe of how you put things together, and that tree came out fantastic! Love the simple touches you make from practically nothing and then all together it creates the perfect statement of a simple yet luxe french christmas. xo

  13. Cindy!!!!! You simply must stop making me swoon so! Every time you come up with some new decor in your home, whether it be renos, seasonal changes or anything else for that matter, my heart goes into overdrive and my senses drown in … well … pure bliss! Is there no end to your magnificent talent? You know, you could make oodles of money if you became an interior designer. You would rapidly be booked for years in advance, I have not a doubt and I would be the first in line for sure! What a lovely room made festive for the Holidays in a very classy way. I love it! Thank you dear Cindy, for sharing your awesome talent with us over and over again, I’m sure that I’m speaking for the majority when I say we all truly delight in it and appreciate it more than you know. Hugs and blessings, dear friend. xxx

    • LindyLou, you humble me with your words….thank you dear friend. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Merry Christmas, filled with blessings!

  14. So beautiful! You did an outstanding job on your room. Everything is just beautiful. I love the banner – I would have never noticed the unevenness if you hadn’t pointed it out.
    By the way, did you do the “Be Still And Know” book page print yourself or purchase it somewhere? I love it!

    • Thank you Cecilia! Yes, I made the “Be Still….” print. It’s printed on a salvaged page from the book of Psalms, from an antique bible. Merry Christmas!

We would love to hear from you!
