A Christmas Tree in the Bedroom? Why Not!



A Christmas tree in the bedroom? Why not!
Simple and cozy coffee table.
Well I find it to be a quite innovative idea! One Christmas tree in the living room. 
Another one in the bedroom for adding some sweetness and warmth to our festive nights!
The effect is of restrained sumptuousness...a sense of playfulness.
                           
I think it doesn't look a lot like Christmas in my home, and the Christmas decoration has not been completed yet I'm afraid. (Photo below). Any suggestions? xx

I love your tree, especially the colors. The bedroom is a great idea. I think a beautiful wreath would be a wonderful accent to that last room.

I love the idea! I might do that next year!

Betty! That is absolutely beautiful. We have a tree up in our living room and one in our dining room. I never thought about the bedroom. And so tastefully decorated, too!

I would have a tree in every room and just about do because...I love it. I will look for a tree on sale this year for next to put in my bedroom.

For your mantle? what about garland - I have white garland and I scattered blue and silver bulbs on it. Or you could prop a wreath on one side with candles around and maybe a clear bowl of ornaments. Sorry, I'm not good at this.

I love a tree in the bed room, so awesome. I think the fire place would be awesome with ever green branches, and christmas bulbs in silver, and mirrored candle sticks, and tons of candles....

peace

Girl! Whatever makes you happy! I have a tree in the living room and a tree in the loft. :)

I like the idea of a Christmas tree in the bed room. It brings joy so why not there? I am a candle addicted so my Tuscan house is decorated with candles and garlands. And always something beautiful in the middle of the main table.
Have a lovely week end

Οταν εχουμε τόσο μεγάλο bedroom... και βεβαια να βάλουμε δέντρο... αλλα εδω στο Ελλάδα δυστυχώς στα διαμερίσματα ίσα που ανοίγει η ντουλάπα.. δράμα.... καλημέρα...

I love the Christmas tree in the bedroom idea, Hell, why not pitch a tent too and roll out the sleeping bags, shake it up a bit!

I love your fireplace, I see natural greenery with silver, white and blue accents. Lots of slender whilte candles, beautiful room you have there and what a lovely focal point that fireplace is!

Calli said...

Hi Betty~ Thanks for your visit and comment. I am happy you stopped so that I could find your place. I love the idea of a tree in the bedroom, absolutely. I wish I had more space in mine.

I think lots of candles and tall slender vases with year round greenery would be nice! Like topiary or put in pots flanking your fireplace. Something with texture to balance and reflect off the glass you already have in the room.
The ideas could be endless...It will be fun to see pics of what you come up with...:)

Hope to see you again~ Happy Holidays~

My son wants a tree in his room...I've been thinking about it!

What beautiful pictures you've posted!

plainolebob said...

Betty, ok I only have on ole tip here, from my fireplace days, and yours is BEAUTIFUL.
Get a can of black high temp paint and paint the firebrick black.
It voids out the opening so that you don't notice the burned spots.

kys said...

Beautiful pics. My kids have trees in their bedrooms. We also have a tree upstairs and one downstairs. Have I ruined my Grinch reputation?

Kristin said...

Why not indeed. The twinkling of Christmas tree lights??? Tres romantic. As is a bedroom fireplace. Jealous!

You could put some Christmas lights up around the house. That always adds some festivity!
