A Little Christmas Bedding in the Guest Rooms

I love giving our bedrooms a touch of Christmas cheer by changing out the bedding. 
Rebekah's room was inspired by old Victoria magazines from the 90s. 

I adored that magazine and much of my early decor was inspired by what I saw within its covers.
Somehow black needlepoint on a plaid pillow is still a fresh look after all this time.
Plaid is hot this season and I've sprinkled it about the house.

I've had the red plaid fabric for years. It was one of the first plaids I bought and it came from Walmart.
Walmart used to have oodles of fabric for either 99 cents or $1.99.
They don't do that anymore.

I think I found the needlepoint pillow at Tuesday Morning.
The black comforter was from Walmart. It grounds the space and provides contrast to all the white and was only $20.00.
It's a cheap way to change up your look.

The black tray coordinates with the scheme.

A pitcher of greens and a metal reindeer from the Crate and Barrel store in NYC are the only Christmas items in this room but it still feels very Christmasy.

It looks so pretty from my chair in the game room.

The other upstairs guest bedroom or the dog's room is simply dressed in black accents as well.

A thrifted needlepoint pillow, throws and our black ticking Pottery Barn pillows dress the bed.

The alpine throw came from our cruise to Alaska.

A small ceramic and funky Christmas tree adorns a side table.

The bed in the office downstairs got a Martha Stewart plaid quilt folded over the IKEA bedding.

Our Belsnickle came from an artist that sells at the Green Flea Market in Manhattan.
He is adorable.

Have I been good or bad this year?
 Belsnickle wants to know.
My heart goes out to those in the Christmas market in Germany.
So much of our traditional Christmas decor comes from early German ornamentation.
It is tragic.
Be watchful out there, Friends.
