If you just can’t wait for the most wonderful time of the year to come along with jolly spirits, cozy fires and the merry music of silver bells ringing, join the fun and decorate early for Christmas in July. (If you're not into Christmas in July, go ahead and save these decorating tips for December.)
You can go all out and pull out the pre-lit tree, garland and Santa Claus figurines throughout your entire home. Or you can keep it more tasteful -- but still festive -- with some of our favorite Christmas in July bedroom decor ideas:
Red is the primary color of Christmas, so it makes sense to add a bold pop of red to your bedroom. A solid red colored lightweight quilt or bedspread with a secondary layering piece, like a white throw, or a fluffy faux fur comforter laid across the foot of the bed help to make your bedroom feel like a winter wonderland.
You can add some whimsy to your bedroom without overdoing it by using decorative sheet sets with prints like reindeer, snowflakes, wrapped gifts or holiday trees.
Holiday decorating isn’t complete until you turn on the twinkle lights! Hang them along your wall behind your bed to create a fun and romantic atmosphere. Or wrap them around your large summer houseplant like a Christmas tree.
Decorative Pillows or Pillow Covers
There are endless options when it comes to choosing the right pillows to make your bedroom pop with Christmas spirit. Choose from a color palette of reds, whites, greens, and/or silvers and mixed textures from cotton to fuzzy faux fur to burlap. Choose solid colors, plaids, printed patterns or favorite holiday sayings. Place the pillows on your bed and on your chair.
Textured Window Curtains
Complete the look of the bedroom with coordinating window treatments. Faux velvet feels soft and fits right in with Christmas decor. Or go for a more unique look with texture from top to bottom to simulate the look of snowfall.
