Simple Christmas Bedroom

Cottage Christmas bedroom crate full of ornaments

Along with twinkling  trees
beautifully wrapped gifts
classic Christmas sweaters
and pounds of holiday cookies and fudge...

Christmas time can also bring with it a lot of busy and chaos and stress
and a feeling that you have to keep doing more and more.

When really all you should be doing 
is to 
simplify a bit. 

Cottage Christmas Bedroom red ornaments and fresh greens

Instead of adding more 
with expectations for the 'ideal' holiday
the best decor
the perfect gifts

and spending more money 
and trying to make each little thing even better 
than it already was

Pomegranates, mixed nuts and Christmas tree

Stop for a moment

and enjoy the season
and give yourself permission to relax a bit
know that simple is always perfect.

Cottage Christmas Bedroom vintage ornaments ticking stripe Christmas tree

Like the charm of a vintage children's stool 
on the guest bed 
ready to hold a warm cup of cocoa.

Or a fresh cedar garland 
draped on an antique door used as a headboard.

Maybe just a few sprigs of pine
and a couple pops of color on a bench

Cottage Christmas Bedroom vintage ornaments in crate by tree

and those vintage ornaments you have been collecting for years and years
are perfect displayed together in an old crate.
And placed  near a tree wearing just a handful of pretty baubles
 instead of being covered in them.

Cottage Christmas Bedroom wrapping presents by Christmas tree

Out in the cottage I definitely subscribe to the 'less is more'
and keep Christmas decorations more simple.
But you know what? 
The cottage feels just as Merry & Bright as the other rooms.

And that just reminds me that sometimes those sprinklings of 
 Christmas are perfect and are exactly what you need.

Cottage Christmas Bedroom wrapping presents on bed by tree

Trees twinkling in the house
Christmas carols playing softly.
 A fire crackling in the fireplace.
Fresh cedar clippings and pretty papers
for presents being wrapped while you sip on hot cocoa.

Cottage Christmas Bedroom Twinkling tree and coffee and antique book on bed

I am definitely loving simple Christmas
 out in the cottage this year
coming your way- 
I will be sharing the rest of the cottage tour
a Sugar Plum Fairy inspired vignette
and another guest bedroom
