I am SO SO SO excited to share Whit’s Christmas room with y’all. It was a lot of fun to come up with new things for him since he just really moved into this room in August. I always put a few touches in here but never went “all out” since he didn’t sleep in here.
I honestly think this is still one of my favorite rooms ever. It is just so happy and sweet – much like the little boy that lives here.
I’ve already shared the very best part – Whit’s reindeer painting.
His well loved Duffy bear is always on or in his bed. I did remove the ten thousand other “friends” for the sake of my photos. But usually I don’t know how he finds room in the bed.
His sheets and the darling pillow are all new this year from Pottery Barn Kids. He has a full bed and John has a queen. I bought the red stripe set in a queen and split it up – Whit gets the top sheet and John has the fitted sheet. I love the look of mis-matched bedding.
One of my old nutcrackers takes a stand on the bedside table…. on top of a book that Elsa got a hold of.
Mother made the boys Mickey stockings years ago for a Disney trip.
Here you can see the other side of the room.
I moved the chair that is usually in front of the window here so the tree would fit.
The felt garland was also from Pottery Barn Kids. I thought about making one but quickly realized this one was worth the price to not add one more project to my list. Sometimes that is the case, right?!
I love how happy and colorful it is. Here is another piece of art by Whit. Hard to believe this is 5 years old – and that he was 4 when he carried it home.
I’ve had this sweet pillow in his room since he was a newborn. It was the first Christmas thing I bought for him.
I picked up this little needlepoint Joy pillow at the same time.
His tree already has so many ornaments. We give each of them an ornament each year that is representative of something they did or loved that year. My parents also give all of the grands a nutcracker ornament each year. AND… many of the ones they make at school hang on the trees in their rooms. I switched out his bow from chocolate brown to this colorful bow to reflect the rest of the Christmas touches in the room.
I planned to share John’s room today too but I’m short on time. I’ll be back tomorrow with all the details as I really need to get a move on this Christmas tour. We will be in to January at the rate I’m crawling along. :-)
