The kid’s bedrooms were the first place I started decorating for Christmas this year. I don’t know about you but usually the bedrooms are the last place I decorate. They were more of an afterthought than purposeful. Last year, they both had a small tinsel tree with twinkle lights. This year, I decided to add some faux garlands (sounds better than fake, right?) more twinkle lights. And red! Because red equals Christmas, right? So all the bedrooms got a bit of red infused in them but I am going to share our Christmas kids’ rooms today.
I really enjoy decorating kids rooms. You can have a lot of fun with color and pattern and totally get away with it. Adding some Christmas to the kids’ rooms this year was no exception. I will start with the boy’s room (because it’s his birthday today!).
My formula for adding Christmas cheer to the kids’ rooms: red pillows/pillow cases, garland, twinkly lights and a mini trees.
Who says blue and red do not go together? (And GO BUCKY next week!!)
I had bought a ton of little ceramic houses a few years ago after Christmas from Joann fabrics. There were multicolored but I spray painted them white this year. The kids specifically asked to have a “little village” in their rooms this year. They worked perfectly!!
I changed the saying on the letter board for the holiday, added a few bottle brush trees and a fun garland.
I have to be strategic about photographing this area because the desk has some lego creation that CANNOT be moved or disassembled for any reason.
Let’s move down the hall to his little sister’s room.
Red and pink is currently my favorite color combo. This room just makes me smile when I walk past it or in it.
This girl is book crazy. I am not kidding. She finds a lot of joy and comfort in having lots of books around her, carrying them around and bringing them everywhere we go.
She insisted on posing for a pic!
Of course, she has her own village under her tinsel tree.
I found this fun mini hat garland at Michael’s and I had to have it. It can stay up all winter too!
I simplified her gallery wall and added some garland and twinkly lights.
The addition of the plaid blanket and red and white pillow complete this room’s Christmas transformation. The kids have been enjoying their rooms for a few weeks now and I know I am going to be sad when I have to remove the Christmas!
