Christmas Cozy Bed

I usually like for my bedroom to have all cream/tan bedding for a restful feeling. 

During December, though, I like to add a bit of dark red to warm things up. 

Nothing too much, just 2 dark red pillow cases, 2 thrifted accent pillows (brown, tan, and red), and my favorite monogram pillow.

The monogram pillow was made by my youngest daughter (the one who just got married).  She used a pre-made pillow form from Target and added the beaded monogram and stiched holly with berries onto the bottom.  It's just beautiful!

My regular bedding is a cream colored matelasse coverlet with a pebble texture that I got years ago at  Burlington Coat Factory,  topped with an ivory quilt I found at Sears.


  1. I love the idea of adding a little
    Christmas to the bedroom!
    I'm gonna keep that in mind for next year!

  2. Okay where do you store these items when you aren't using them?? I would love to change up the bedding in our room, but I have no idea where to store the unused set??

  3. As my daughter used to say when she was just a wee one: "I would like my nap now, please." What a soothing and cozy holiday bed!

  4. Sweet pillow Kelly! It adds just the right tough of Christmas touch and even more special because your daughter added the monogram...thanks for sharing!

  5. The only things I don't use regularly are the red pillow cases. I just purchased them in the clearance section at TJMaxx. They'll store easily with my other pillow cases. The other three pillows are usually on a chair or sofa around the house. Because I have red in the rest of my house, I can use them year round.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
