Christmas In The Master Bedroom With A White Tree

shabby chic bed christmas

Hello again friends. I'm excited to share Christmas in our master bedroom, which I actually styled and shot weeks ago and finally had the time to talk about today. Keep reading because there is a party going on with lots to see!

It started with this tree that was rescued from one of our client's who was tossing it into the trash! It was a tosser because the prelit lights did not work and it had yellowed. I'm not above rescues and the finished product looks pretty gorgeous. Don't you think?

I explained more about the process HERE.

On the bedroom mantel I added some faux white garland. The vintage mirror is one that I've had for a few years just laying around, and somehow it popped into my head to hang it over the mantel flanked by a pair of antique French sconces.

The sconces were a very generous gift from a friend and I haven't yet wired them to U.S. standards, but I will. They have delicate cloth pull chains to turn them on and I hung a vintage pinecone ornament from each. Just one of those little extra touches.

I love vintage ornaments and have a pretty large collection. In the bedroom I used faded metallics in silver and gold on the mantel, along with some pinecones that I painted white.

And on the tree I mixed in some of my favorites that are vintage blush pink. There are many reproduction ornaments available these days but I don't think that they can compare to the patina that you find with vintage.

A few subtle touches of pink, and I went a little crazy buying inexpensive pillows (from H&M Home) to change things out this year.

I'll let you in on a little quirky secret and why there are presents on the bed. No, they are not staged (well maybe just a little:~}. I actually have done my present wrapping in the master bedroom ever since the kiddos were little, so that I could close the door and then hide them underneath the bed! It's a back saver for me too, since the bed is a high one. Works for me and our homes are meant to be lived in and breathed in.

Today I'm super excited to be partying with some of the sweetest blog ladies that I know, and I hope that you take a few minutes to see what they have to share! I'll be back with more all week long too:~}}
