- We adorned the window and wall on either side of the fireplace with lodge-themed tier curtains, a lighted canvas depicting a vintage holiday scene, and a faux wood display ledge.
- We warmed up the bare floor with a rustic area rug bordered in pine cones and plaid, then placed an accent chair topped with a throw pillow nearby.
- We placed wilderness Santas on the floor and dangled snowmen Christmas stockings from the mantel. We opted for seasonal decor in earthy, muted tones rather than bright reds or glittery golds.
- We gave some nature flavor to the area above the fireplace with a pair of decorative 24”H trees covered in pine cones and a pre-lit, frosted faux greenery wreath.
Do you sometimes wish that the holiday elves would sneak into your bedroom when you’re not around and transform it into a glorious display straight from the catalog pages? Then the next time you’d walk in, your bedding would be fabulously festive and beautifully coordinated. Even if the elves can’t spare a moment from their toy-making duties, these holiday bed ensembles will still bring you that merry, lavish look in your bedroom—with just a little effort on your part, of course.
New for 2017, these exclusive holiday bedding patterns are only available at Touch of Class®; our in-house designer dreams them up, along with a variety of bed and window coordinates that are sold separately, so you can create your own frothy bed confection accessorized just the way you want it.
Click on the names or images below to view the Christmas bedding ensembles shown, as well as coordinating items from the entire collection.
The Poinsettia Palace holiday bedding ensemble has a champagne faux silk foundation embellished with embroidered designs like poinsettias, berries, holly leaves, pine sprigs, and golden ribbon.
The Holiday Traditions bedding ensemble combines printed poinsettia designs with plaid for contrast. The decorative pillows, sold separately, have embroidered designs on one side and reverse to plaid.
The Peppermint Dreams bedding ensemble has a bold holiday style with colors of red, green, black, and white. Candy cane motifs and striped designs make this Christmas bed pattern sweet yet sassy. A quilt set and a bedspread are available in this pattern – plus lots of fun accessories.
Is your holiday decor looking a little humdrum this year? Let poinsettia accents flourish anywhere your home needs a decorative boost! With their saturated, showy red bracts, poinsettias are just the thing to perk up a floor, furnishing, or window. Decorating with poinsettia accents allows you to bring a cohesive element to your room while still giving you the flexibility to mix and match a variety of items.
For this holiday living room, we started with five larger pieces that would set the stage for all kinds of accessories to be added afterward. We used the following:
- a full, coordinating window treatment (curtains with tiebacks and a matching valance)
- a tall, flat-back tree that could be pushed close to the wall (decorated with faux poinsettias, of course)
- a grand wall mirror set (central mirror and two grille-style sides)
- a decorative stained glass fireplace screen
- a statement rug (a poinsettia runner with shaped edges)
From here, we simply embellished the room with smaller poinsettia accents or glimmering accessories:
- two different holiday throw pillows nestled together on a loveseat
- a trio of glittering red wire tree accents grouped on the floor
- a ribbon-and-greenery garland placed across the mantel
- a pre-lit poinsettia wreath hung over the fireplace
- an angel topper with poinsettias displayed atop the tree

What’s not to love about farmhouse-inspired Christmas decor? This holiday decorating theme embraces the eclectic style, featuring rustic pieces with a modern edge. Nothing is too fussy here, so if your decor looks lived-in, or something’s a bit out of place, all the better. This decorating style will welcome your thrift-store finds, mismatched kitchenware, and weathered mementos from years past. Get ready to give your home plenty of country Christmas flavor!
How to get started?
1. Homemade decorations
Let your DIY spirit flourish as you create holiday decorations by hand. Give your tree a one-of-a-kind look with handcrafted ornaments, or hang a Christmas card garland on your wall.
2. Textural interest
Mix textures to keep your farmhouse Christmas decor from looking staid. Burlap, felt, and galvanized metal are just some of the materials that will be right at home in this style. Hang a wooden plank sign or a plaque featuring a corrugated metal tree above your fireplace as a charming mantel accent.
3. Repurposed items
No need to stock up on new holders for this decorating style! Fill aged buckets, watering cans, or pitchers with faux holiday greenery for a fresh take on vase arrangements. Turn Mason jars or vintage lanterns into LED candle luminaries for safe accent lighting. Stock clear latch-lid canisters with peppermint sticks for old-time appeal. If you can reuse or restyle something to suit your decor, do it!
4. Unique statement pieces
Go on the hunt for those offbeat items that will make your farmhouse decor stand apart! Just a few ideas: a white resin reindeer head, a stack of vintage soda crates, an old trunk used as a table, or a darling antique sled or wagon.
5. Comfy accessories
Don’t forget plump decorative pillows, fringed throw blankets, and patchwork quilts to give warmth and comfort to living rooms and bedrooms.

If minimalism is your thing, you’ll love the Scandinavian Christmas decorating style. This pared-down holiday decorating theme draws inspiration from the Scandinavian region, with lots of natural touches and homespun accents. Simplicity and homey charm are key for this unpretentious Christmas look.
Here are a few basics you can use as a foundation for this style: natural wood decorations, greenery swags and wreaths, trees dappled with homemade ornaments, and presents wrapped in brown paper and tied with twine. To cozy it all up, you might want to add textural touches of snuggly faux fur—perhaps a rug, throw blanket, or tree skirt.
After you have the basics in place, you can enhance the Scandinavian holiday decorating style with one of three palettes (or use some combination to create a look that is all your own!):
1) stark black and pristine white
2) icy/frosted with metallic golden touches and candles
3) red and white or cream, especially Nordic patterns
