Visions of Sugarplums

Hello Everyone!
I am dreaming of a Christmas bedroom. I have been
inspired by my blog friends Becca, Marla and Denise.
Check out what they have done to theirs. Stunning!
Before I get started shopping I surfed around for even more
lovely inspiration. Pottery Barn also has the most precious
Christmas bedding ever. Take a look at these photos.
Which one is your favorite? I love the poster bed with garland.
Precious wreath in the window.
Aw. Look at the little frame ornament tree.
What a darling chandy and fresh colors for the holidays.
Oh so amazing and dreamy....:)
Giant snowflake love.
Neutrals and big angel wings. Gorgeous!
Love the textured basket too.
A decorated mantel in the bedroom. Sigh....:)
They make me want to live in each room.
Hanging wreaths above the bed with cheerful striped bedding.
Goodness how Christmas-y is this room!
We have pale blue bedroom walls...Hmmm...:)
A cozy Christmas classic. It looks warm.
What about you? Do you decorate your bedrooms?
You still have time to enter my redbird tassel giveaway.
The winner will be announced Sunday evening.
I hope your Thanksgiving weekend is wonderful!

Aren't they all so pretty. Do people REALLY live like that??

Oh, yes, I do decorate my bedroom a tiny bit. Little sparkly lights on the headboard and a wreath on my pillow...:)

Traci said...

These are really pretty. I don't decorate my bedroom. It's all I can do to get the 2 trees up & the rest of the house decorated.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh, mine is the red checked bed linens, of course. Just like my drapes in the breakfast room. Great inspiration.

Heather's Stitches said...

My all time Fav. is the last bed because it looks almost exactly like my bedspread which is from the Ralph Lauren Chaps line! Although with 3 kids running and jumping on the bed my bedspread doesn't stay smooth for

I have put a lil tree on our bathroom counter that has lil ornaments with our names on them.


KATHY said...

Hi melissa, How beautiful!! I love the bird bedding. I really love all of them.Happy decorating.


Kathysue said...

Loving the angel wing bedroom. I am so taken with those angel wings, I have seen them around for the last few years. I think I need some!!! The red and white check would be fun for Christmas. I have a friend that has a room all year long that looks very much like this. How fun Melissa!!! Don't you just love this time of year, My mind just spins with ideas!!! Kathysue

Beautiful rooms, Melissa! I am gearing up to do a HUGE bedroom makeover and your photos are inspiring me to decorate the room for Christmas this year. I always do every other room in the house including the guest room and the kids' rooms, but I have never done our room for Christmas...maybe this year I will. Thanks for the inspiration!

God Bless,

Auntie Bliss said...

OH GOSH! Those all look so cuddly and beautiful. I love the red gingham so much!

Danielle said...

I love anything Pottery Barn. I've been drooling over their catalog for the last month.

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

I could be happy in any one of those bedrooms! Sooooo dreamy.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh my, hard to choose, they are all stunning. Love them. Hugs, Marty

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Oh, and thank you so much for linking my guest room post. You are so sweet!

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

I've always wanted to decorate my own bedroom for Christmas but never have. I can't wait to see your!!! I will be decorating my kids' bedrooms. Just like a mom to always put my kids first. ha

Melissa~ the way you feel about facebook is the same way I feel about tweeter. lol


Hi Melissa,
I have never thought of decorating our bedroom for the holidays.. but my dear you have inspired me so! I love these rooms you have shared with us... I don't think I would be able to choose one, they are all so lovely. Perhaps I can put a miniture tree in our room this year to get started.

Blondie's Journal said...

I never thought to do our bedroom but it really is a nice idea since we are on the main level. We have a 4 poster so I could probably get the effect of the inspiring picture. Hmmmm...I'll have to check my stash! Great ideas and I hope you do yours!


madge1967 said...

Oooooo, Melisa! What are you going to do in your bedroom for this years Christmas cheer!!!! I want to see it when you are done!!!
I have to clean up mine for right now,....,you know me messy betsy Ms. Melissa and Mr. Melvan messy Kitty!
No matter what you do, it will be so beautiful!
Lets play show and tell!!!

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

Beautiful! My favorite are the red check twin beds. Love the little red table in between the beds too. Red is so classic and timeless for Christmas. I never tire of it.

Nancy said...

I love a rumpled bed look and I would love to win one of your tassels! As for my favorite bed, I was captured at the beginning, the very first pic. Love it.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Melissa, thanks for the tour! These rooms are beautiful. I THINK my favorites are the first and the one with the mantel and the white bedding with the birds. It was interesting to see the red bedding with the light blue walls too! It's hard to change the bedding regularly with window treatments and rugs unless they are really neutral, but I love change! Have a great day. Linda

Jenn said...

I want my bedroom to look just like that first picture!

Miss Janice said...

I need to redo my master bedroom and some of these are catching my eye...beautiful!

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Love those inspiring pics! I don't decorate the bedrooms, however, our oldest asked for a tree for her room, so I guess that I will have to find a small tree,huh?

Angie said...

Love these pictures! My favorite is the one with the cute red and white checked bedding.

Tiffini said...

I don't decorate my bedroom but how lovely and inviting are these bedrooms? I love them all:)

Deserae said...

Wonderful inspirational bedrooms....I usually do not decorate our bedrooms for the holidays but there is always a first :o)

Mommieof3 said...

I love them all! If I had the choice I would need some time to decide they are all beautiful and unique.

Carolyn said...

Hi Melissa,
Just love these pictures, they make you feel as though you could just wrap yourself in the bed covers...delicious!

Just found your blog and love it.

Liz said...

What dreamy bedrooms. I love them all, thanks for sharing with us...gave me some great ideas!

Love and ((Hugs)), Liz

Tara G. said...

I do don't usually do much to the bedrooms- the older two have little trees in theirs. I'm not sure what we'll do this year since they're all in one room and little missy is such a busy body!! :) My mom quilts like you wouldn't beleive and always has some sort of Christmas quilts on the guest beds at her house.

Becca said...

Hey there! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. And, what a sweet surprise to see your shout out to my master bedroom from last year! Thank you! And, I do apologize as you'll be disappointed in what I've done (or should I say "haven't" done) to it this year. lol. I'm drooling over the other inspirational pics. I love them all, and would welcome my bedroom looking like any of them! I love the crisp white linens and red thrown in. Yummy! Now, hurry up and post some pics of YOUR beautiful Christmas decor. Hugs, Becca

Donna said...

You just have THE most wonderful style! These are gorgeous bedrooms!! Thanks for a beautiful post!! (Can't wait to see what you do with your Christmas decor for your home!!)

Angela said...

They're all very pretty! I can't wait to see what you do to your bedroom! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Ginger said...

I love the red and white. You could use it all year round.

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Love these! Ya'll have just made me want to decorate my bedroom. Hmmmm wonder what I can up with?

Melanie said...

They are all gorgeous! I just got my PB in the mail yesterday and it is all beautiful.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.

Kathy said...

All of the bedrooms are lovely The pottery barn pixs though just catch my eye oh sigh :-)

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Oh I love your inspiration pics!!!! I don't know if I could pick a favorite- because all the red ones are talking to me!!! I adore that red check with pale blue as well- beautiful combination! Thank you for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday~ hope you Thanksgiving was wonderful! :)

Jen @ said...

beautiful inspiration pictures! It would be so fun to decorate a bedroom for Christmas. I have a white comforter and made some christmas pillows to go on my bed but that's about it. So fun!


Tina Peterson said...

I like 7, 8 and 9. I love pottery barn too and often pick up their catalogs and just browse through them. It's like a great cookbook - sometimes it's just fun to read or look through them.

I'm following you from la bella vita's linky. =D

love the bird bedding, inspiring bedrooms

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Hi Melissa! I love that last photo! I never think to decorate the bedroom...hmmmm! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!...hugs...Debbie

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

They're all beautiful. I think I'd choose the red patchwork quilt for Christmas. I do always put a Christmas quilt on my bed, but that's about it for decorating the bedroom here. It's the gift storage place until the tree is up :-)

Stacey said...

Oh my goodness, those touches of Christmasy red are to die for. I know some people seem to thing red has passed but I just don't agree. Give me red! :)

Pam said...

I've never decorated my bedroom before, but I think I will this year. I love the first photo because it doesn't shout Christmas, but still gives you the Christmas feel. Thanks for the inspiration!

Liz said...

Love those big red buffalo checks the best!!!

Hi Melissa! Little late for the posting but oh well right. I love all these rooms but I think I just adore the last 2 rooms with all that red! Love red and the pale blue walls are so pretty. I would love to decorate our bedroom, but frankly the room is overdue for a makeover period and I would just die to show my bedroom as is right now. But hopefully comes spring and summer we are doing some painting. Cross your fingers. Have a wonderful Christmas to you and your family.
