Just a sprinkle of Christmas
and cheer appearing early in the season.
Like a sugar frosted tree wearing nothing but twinkling lights.
a fresh French country toile on the bed
pinecones and subtle touches of gilded elegance.
I am decking Christmas all through the house right now.
I am covered in bits of frosted sprinkles
and am singing along with Christmas carols
and rocking around the tree.
And though I am sharing a peek into the bedroom today...
it is really just a peek of what is to come.
And I have a confession...
Did you know that I ordered the most amazing red toile bedding,
pretty pillows, charming Christmas wreaths, bits and baubles for the guest bedroom for this tour?
And did you know that out of the blue,
my guest bedroom had some last minute visitors spending several days with us?
Which was completely fantastic and I was so excited about.
Except, when I found out they were coming,
I was across the US at High Point Market.
I hadn't decked the guest bedroom for Christmas yet with
all those pretty things that had just arrived to play with for todays post.
So that occupied guest bedroom meant I was changing things a bit in my bedroom for this styling.
And sometimes- those little changes in the original plan work perfectly.
My bedroom is all about simple elegance.
Well, other than yes, I have a full sized tree and a fireplace mantel to decorate in there.
But I don't go crazy color wise or with a whole lot of holiday decor.
At least not at the beginning of November.
My favorite look is always full of simple elegance.
That delicate dance that sprinkles the room with seasonal decor
without overwhelming my style and everyday look.
I did put up the tree already... but it is not decorated just yet.
But it is coming your way very soon...
For this early Christmas styling
I brought in
a bit of glistening gold and a little twinkle
and a whole lot of charm.
This twinkling tree pillow completely stole my heart the minute it arrived.
As did this gold metal floral and leaf wreath.
And a bit of traditional color for a more bold sprinkle of Christmas cheer
with that whimsical woodland toile bedding.
Have I ever told you how much I love toile?
Red, blue, green, yellow- you name it- I love it all.
But my very first toile love- is red.
And when I saw this red toile bedding-and the price- you can bet that it went into
my cart immediately.
It is absolute love and it brings a perfect holiday touch.
On the mantel
a couple sprigs of fresh greens from the yard, a few frosty baubles
and vintage silver trophies that I packed back from High Point Market with me.
I have a huge love affair with vintage silver and have been on the lookout for
vintage trophies for awhile now.
And when I walked into a cash and carry shop in High Point and found a whole shelf full for sale-
well, about 8 of them came home with me
and they are finding their way all over the house.
And you will be seeing much more about all of them soon.
I hope you enjoyed a peek at a few early sprinklings of Christmas that are
appearing in the house.
And stay tuned because you won't want to miss so much more that is coming your way
including just how I style my bedroom and tree for the holidays this year.
And today I am joining my Farmhouse blogging friends in sharing a holiday bedroom look as well.

And stay tuned for a closer look at those trophies,
and a whole lot of easy on the work but big on the impact Christmas ideas coming your way
along with several Christmas room reveals
an appearance on a t.v. show (yikes!)
and much much more!
Happy November 1st everyone!
I partnered with Birch Lane to bring a bit of Merry and Bright to the bedroom
but all designs and opinions and love of my Wayfair family is my own.
