Good morning! I am back again with another day on the schedule for the annual 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style Holiday Tour of Homes. Today we are sharing bedrooms. If you are joining me from my sweet friend and fabulous host Jenny at Evolution of Style, Welcome, Y’all!!
I’m a wife and mom to two awesome boys and I work as a travel advisor specializing in Disney destinations. I hope you will continue to follow along as I decorate, travel, create and celebrate all the little moments in life. And, if you’re looking for a theme park trip planned by a passionate professional, I’d love to help!
Master Bedroom Classic Christmas Decor
I have only been decorating our master for a few years now and I am so glad that I started. The red bedding was called Odette from Pottery Barn. It’s such a beautiful pattern, with deer, swans, woodland rabbits and greenery. I keep thinking about adding a flocked tree in here but then I fizzle out on motivation every year.
On the dresser I have a flower arrangement and a little painting made by Mother. I display each and every year of Santa pictures during the season all over the house. Watch my DIY flower arranging video for a how-to, tips and tricks!
In the bathroom I hang a simple wreath on the glass shower enclosure for a little dose of Christmas cheer.
Teen Boy Bedroom Classic Christmas Decor
Moving on to John’s room, you will find more colorful Christmas decor and special things he has had for years. Since he did school here for eight months and has been home more than ever, I loved being able to infuse Christmas spirit, joy and cheer in his space.
The sheets were from Pottery Barn a couple of years ago. I know they seem frivolous, but I have used the same set for ages! I got the FAO bear for him in NYC as a sweet memento of his 13th birthday trip a couple of years ago. It only comes out at Christmas these days. And, man, I miss NYC!
The print over his bed for Christmas is a limited edition courtesy of The Old Try. It is hard to see but it has all of the reindeer listed and the O in Rudolph is red.
His desk was my mother’s as a child, and then mine, before being passed down for the third time. It really just sat collecting dust until the pandemic hit and virtual school was in session. I added a few Christmassy things for the season but, as you can see, this is a real life functioning space. (school books, laundry, overflowing trash)
After collecting ornaments from our travels and special occasions for many years, I “upgraded” him to a full sized tree last year! It sure is festive! This corner also doubles as his music room.
The antique dresser was in his nursery. He’s almost outgrown the size of the drawers. :-) Over on the dresser are more of my old nutcrackers and another Christmas Old Try print. In fact, the little red one was the actual nutcracker I used when I was Clara in the 1993 Ballet South production. Gulp!
He loves his little lounge area more than ever, being home and doing so much classwork in his room. The reindeer pillow was from his first Christmas.
And, finally, I have a few things he has carried home over the years for Christmas on his bookcase. Lots of mementos here.
Tween Boy Bedroom Classic Christmas Decor
Whit’s room is still one of my favorite rooms ever. It is just so happy and sweet – much like the little boy that lives here. We significantly updated John’s room before middle school, but Whit looked at me like I had two heads when I asked if he wanted to change anything in his room. He is neither frivolous, nor does he do anything in here but sleep so I guess I shouldn’t be shocked.
Three years ago on a sick day at home, he made his very own painting to hang over his bed. You can see all about it here: reindeer painting. It’s funny how clearly I remember that day and how glad I am that we did this together.
His sheets and the fun pillow were from Pottery Barn Kids a couple of years ago. 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.
Over on the other side of the room is his dresser (Honey’s as a child) and the chair that we move to make room for the tree. The felt garland was also from Pottery Barn Kids. The North Pole pillow was one I just happened to find and I LOVE it. I knew the moment I saw it that it would be perfect in here.
Here is another piece of art by Whit. Hard to believe that he was four when he carried it home and will be twelve next week.
He has other special Christmas touches around his room. A stocking made by Mother, an old Nutcracker of mine and a needlepoint pillow I had for his nursery the year he was born… just in case he came before Christmas. (He was early and he did!)
We give the boys an ornament each year that is representative of something they did or loved that year, and we also collect them on vacations in what is usually our only souvenir. My parents give them a dated nutcracker every year, and they also have the ornaments they make at school. I made a colorful garland for Whit’s tree out of old Disney MagicBands!
