The Holiday Master Bedroom

In keeping with the more simplistic holiday decor, I decided to dress the master bedroom

with the Pottery Barn Winter Birds collection as I did last year.

I did use different pillows and accents as the room has definitely changed from last year.

I just love this bedding that can take you right through with winter months.

I added the beautiful monogrammed wreath pillow this year to the bed.

Last year, this pillow was on the media room sofa so it did the Pillow Shuffle dance.

The bed is in a different location in the room from last Christmas.

The sofa in the sitting area took its place.

Adding little touches of Christmas and Winter decor throughout the room . . .

~ ~ again, in keeping with my more simple Holiday decor.

With the exception of the Winter Birds pattern pillow, the pillows on the sofa were

on the bed previously . . . and danced to the tune of the Pillow Shuffle.

Placed a small poinsettia in a vintage crystal vase.

This baby Norfolk Pine was placed in the bottom portion of a covered container.

After Christmas, I want to try my hand in placing the Norfolk Pine into another container.

A container of water . . . I saw this technique somewhere and thought it looked great.

For Christmas, I usually have a tree in every room in the house.

This year, this is my tree for the master bedroom . . . a vase of faux birch branches

with miniature pine cone ornaments that sits next to my vintage hat boxes.

I am happy with the Christmas decor in the room this year . . . just enough.

My hubby can rest well at night without the feeling of being in a Winter Wonderland

and the possibility of an elf popping out from behind the dresser!

And to all a good night!!….

However, there may be some late nights for me as I scurry to finish up the holiday

    I love those old hat boxes! I have a small collection from my Mom’s heyday, and I treasure them. The world just doesn’t make shopping as elegant as those days anymore.

    I so admire your decorating style, Shirley. You know just what to do and how much of it. Your creative stylings are classy, classic and downright gorgeous. Merry Christmas to you and your extended family!

  41. I love your Christmas decorations. You have given me some ideas that I can do. Merry Christmas from Arkansas.
