Red and White Christmas Bedroom

Red and white is my absolute favorite color combination.  Has been for quite some time and there's no better time to use it than the holidays. 
Every winter I look forward to putting a new twist on the classic pair in my master bedroom.

This year the artwork on either side of the window was replaced with framed fabric samples in red and white to add a burst of red to the white walls.

Tiny wreaths made from coffee filters were hung over the frames.

I love the way the wreaths pop against the red.

On my dresser, a collection of silver gravy boats are filled with red glass ornaments and garland.

The bedside table is kept simple with a small votives and more ornaments.

A red bench was brought in to sit at the end of the bed.

It holds a pretty lantern along with extra blankets and pillows.

More red and white on the bed itself and a white glitter house village on the headboard mantel adds sparkle to the room.

I'm very happy with this years version of the red and white bedroom.  It's has very calm and restful feeling to me.  I find myself sneaking off to hang out in my room a little more often these days just because I love it so much.

Linking up to:


  1. beautiful - how classic & fresh! as always - your spaces just let me sigh!

  2. I love the red/white combination! It's so festive, yet can be used all year. The punch of black from the mantel is very classy.

  3. Oh like a magazine. Your room is so serene and that shelf is perfection!!

  4. Gorgeous bedroom! The coffee filter wreaths over the framed fabric are very pretty! I also like your clever idea of putting ornaments in the silver gravy boats. LOVE your red bench at the end of the bed. You made that bench, right?

  5. I love all your red and white decor and candy canes ♥ The tray with the votives and red balls is lovely. I have been trying to think of what I have around that I could make a prim version with:) Thanks for commenting on my blog ~ the merry swap was lots of fun!

  6. Hi Robin,
    What a gorgeous bedroom!!! I love red and white together as well.
    I really adore the coffee filter wreaths over the red and white framed prints, such a beautiful idea!
    Hope you have a lovely day.

  7. Oh Robin,
    I would want to hang out in there, too! It feels so restful, red can be a very exciting color, but you have caused it to feel the very opposite! All of the decorations are lovely and sweet, especially the beautiful houses above the bed.
    I love it.
    Hugs, Cindy
