Christmas Bedroom Decor – Our Master Bedroom

Earlier this year, I painted the room Sea Salt by Sherwin-Williams. So it only made sense to kick things up a notch in the master bedroom Christmas department with some fancier holiday decor.

My big idea: build a shelf for above our bed, and then decorate said shelf for Christmas. Brad LOVES when I come up with these ideas.

Back in early November we started on and finished the shelf building. I even primed it. Then, it sat in the garage for over a month. Because this is how I operate. 

But this past weekend, with Christmas being single-digits away, the fire was lit. And I busted that sucker out in less than a day– sanding, painting, hanging, and decorating it before midnight Saturday night.

Can you tell that I need deadlines?

Anyway, here she is all decked out for the Christmas holiday season.

I decorated the shelf with things I already had, so other than the materials to make the shelf, I didn’t spend any extra money.

The Christmas trees are typically displayed on my late grandparents’ buffet in our dining room, but I thought they’d look good on the shelf this year. Kinda giving off that white Christmas vibe.


I’ve had the sparkly cone tree on the left for about 10 years. I’ve had the feather trees for a couple years. The feather trees come in sizes large, medium, and small.

I made that furry cone tree. I originally covered in a fuzzy fabric, but it was too stark white since the other trees are more of an off-white hue. So I covered the furry material with leftover fur that I used to make my no-sew faux fur tree skirt and Louie’s Santa beard.

It pays to hoard faux fur. It can come in handy when decorating your bedroom for Christmas.


I picked up this $25 flocked wreath four years ago during a Shop Small Saturday sale at Gehlhausen, a florist in Brad’s hometown.


The pearl-looking cone tree was a HomeGoods find from a couple years ago.


I bought the sparkly garland last year at Pier 1 Imports, but it’s also available this year. It ended up as part of our dining room centerpiece last Christmas.


The garland, which I secured with these, fit perfectly across the 60-inch shelf.

I’m obviously a fan of color, especially when it comes to Christmas, even if it’s just the traditional red and green like this tree I decorated, but I like the serene look of this for our bedroom.


I didn’t go crazy with Christmas bedding or anything, but I always get questions about our white bedding. You can find the duvet cover set (cover + two matching pillow shams) here. It’s almost always on sale, and it’s held up really well. The Euro sham covers can be found here. You can grab my favorite sheets here— in case you’re looking for great sheets that will last for years. And here’s our headboard.


After decorating the shelf, I thought “Self, you should add some lights.” So I went online and ordered some inexpensive fairy lights.

BAM. Instant beautiful Christmas romance.


I added two strands of fairy lights to the sparkly garland and one strand behind the trees.

I might add some to the wreath, but I had already made the bed, and I didn’t want to mess it up and have to fix it to take these photos. So there’s that.


Gah. So pretty. It just goes to show the most simple Christmas decorations can pack the most razzle dazzle.


The fairy light wires are copper, but you can get silver-colored wire fairy lights if that sort of thing bugs you.


We were lying in bed the other night and I said to Brad, doesn’t this remind you of your teenage bedroom when you strung Christmas lights above your bed?

My loving husband looked at me with a blank stare. To which I responded, “Oh yeah, you’re not a chick.”


I’m headed off to binge some Christmas movies before it’s socially unacceptable to do so anymore.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

  1. What a great idea. It looks beautiful. I wouldn’t put lights on the wreath. It looked so soft and warm without it. Just enough with the colors to make you think Santa was right out the door. Loved it. Great job. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas.

  2. This is absolutely beautiful! Such shine and sparkle and the glow of the lights is the perfect touch! Our master bedroom is begging for a refresh and a shelf above the headboard would be fun. Thanks so much for sharing with us …and Merry Christmas!!!!

    1. Thank you, Carolyn! I’m excited to decorate it for a year-round look but I’m tempted to keep this up until February because it can pass as ‘wintery’. 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  3. Welp, Im one of your readers who loves your bedding, and finally bought it after reading this post! My husband has a comforter that is a really heavy weight and he loves it for the winter, it looks nice enough…but his ex gave it to him so it bugs me to look at it. Bought your duvet cover and problem solved. And just in time for Christmas 🙂

    Love your holiday room Chelsea, Merry Christmas!

    I have to say I love what you did here, but I think I would have been brave enough to have done the ceiling to bring everything in.. I think this would have looked wonderful! on your ceiling SW 6255
    Morning Fog or even this one, SW 7018
    Merry Christmas to you and your family 🙂

  5. Very pretty! Love all the décor and the lights!

  6. Jessica S says:

    LOVE this with the lights!!! I’ve been seeing cone trees everywhere and now I feel like I need some. Is the shelf a permanent fixture or will it be coming down after Christmas?

    P.S. I was inspired by your bedroom to paint our kids/guest bathroom Sea Salt. Love it!

    1. Thanks, Jessica! That’s great! I hope you love how it turned out in your bathroom. Brad proclaims that the shelf is never coming down. Ever.

  7. So beautiful as usual! Merry Christmas!

  8. Chelsea, you are-simply-precious through and through. Your sweet creativity inspires me, and I am so TOUCHED by the beautiful things you create. I rarely comment (I usually read on the run!) but I had to this time. Your Christmas bedroom is simply gorgeous. Not too much, but sweet, soothing, and charming. Merry merry Christmas to you and your family. Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us-your fans! ?

  9. Love how your room looks- and you made me laugh- so funny! I’m inspired to make some cone trees-
    An altogether great read and eye candy-
    Merry Christmas!

    Your Christmas bedroom looks fabulous. I love the lights- very romantic. Have a wonderful holiday season.

  11. Wow, that is so gorgeous! I can’t wait to try that next year after hopefully renovating our master bedroom!! The garland looks very similar to what I bought this year at HomeSense! LOVE it! Pinning now! 😀
