Most classic Christmas decor is centered around the communal areas of our homes: A decorated Christmas tree in the living room, a Christmas village on the mantel, and stockings hung over the fireplace. But why leave the holiday spirit downstairs when you could light up the rest of the house with festive cheer too? The average person spends a third of their life in the bedroom, so if you ask us, that’s as good an excuse as any to decorate the space with festive cheer.

Fuel your days with Christmas joy from the minute you open your eyes to the moment your head hits the pillow at night with Christmas bedroom decor this season. From holiday wreaths to festive figurines, we're sharing our favorite ways to turn your bedroom into a cozy winter wonderland this season. Get out the snuggly bedding, decorate an extra twinkling Christmas tree, and deck the halls of your bedroom for the season.

Decorate in Classic Christmas Colors

You don’t need to make any long-term, drastic alterations to your space to give it a holiday feel. Instead, introduce temporal accessories like bedding, throws, holiday-themed cushions, or a Christmas wall hanging. Red and white is an iconic Christmas combination, so make that the dominant color palette. Or, just add red accents to a neutral bedroom. You could even add a mini Christmas tree if you have the space.

Dream of a white Christmas with the help of a snow-covered tree and a flocked wreath above the bed. Bring your frosty winter wonderland to life with a few touches of frosty green foliage that will turn any white bedroom into a festive holiday retreat. This is an easy way to repurpose holiday decor pieces you love but don't have room for in the rest of the house. And by adding only one or two statement pieces, clean-up after the holidays is a breeze.

Decorate a Bedroom Christmas Tree

Put a Christmas tree in your bedroom and decorate it just the way you like it. Choose a color scheme that matches your bedroom, like these soft neutral and delicate pink baubles. Or, declare a theme and decorate your bedroom tree with matching ornaments. A small faux fir or tabletop Christmas tree will keep the room feeling spacious while adding some holiday cheer. Give your small tree a cozy feel by wrapping the stand with a thick knit throw and draping it with Christmas lights to make it sparkle at night.

Deck the Bed with Evergreen Foliage

A touch of evergreen foliage offers a light nod to the festive season, and it's perfect for minimal bedroom decor. Drape a plain pine garland over the bedhead and crown it with a matching wreath. Here, the ice skates subtly allude to the winter season and make an elegant piece of holiday decor, as do the scattered cushions and silver Christmas tree ornaments on the bedside.

Get Creative with Christmas Wreaths

Christmas wreaths are an endlessly versatile piece of decor, which is partly why we love them so much. Gather a range of hoop wreaths and decorate them with small sprigs of winter greens and red berries. Then, hang them with an invisible thread to frame the headboard. Or, attach them to the end of string Christmas lights to create a magical sparkling wall at night.

Add a Tiny Tree to Your Dresser

A chest of drawers is an opportune space for bedroom Christmas decor. Opt for a mini-flocked tree or a Christmas village scene protected by an elegant glass cloche. Here, a seasonal piece of abstract art makes an apt backdrop draped with a delicate angel garland for a heavenly finishing touch.

Hang an Advent Calendar

Hang an Advent calendar on an empty bedroom wall to create a personalized holiday look. You can add this to your own bedroom, or make it a decorative addition to a child's bedroom. Help them count down to the big day with numbered envelopes and boxes filled with little trinkets and candy hung from a branch. Just make sure to hang it high enough that they can’t go snooping after you’ve tucked them up in bed!
