Welcome to Day 2 of the Caroline House Christmas Tour! The girl’s room that we’ll start with was designed by Sonja Steelman and Rebekah Vermeer.
“Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to Him with tambourine and lyre! For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He adorns the humble with salvation.” Psalm 149:3-4
I am a sucker for a good antique bed frame. I may already have one ready for when Nugget is old enough to move into a “big girl” bed (ahem, in maybe a year and a half from now… I don’t have a problem). But bed frame aside, how creative is their use of Christmas lights under the bed! That tulle skirt is sheer enough for the lights to shine through (genius). And it’s also a hilariously affordable option for making a bed skirt. Cool.
Is pink a Christmas color? It kind of feels like it in this room. I think all the metallics layered around the pink makes it feel dressy and sophisticated. Also, those spray-painted, gold nutcrackers are awesome. And wrapping the chair like a present is a darling idea, albeit not entirely practical .
It’s official. After seeing this whimsical little tree set, pink is now a Christmas color.
Moving into the attached bathroom, the cuteness continues with adorable pink and metallic touches overflowing. I love this nutcracker. Another clever, affordable idea: writing verses/song lyrics/quotes on the mirror.
Practically speaking, I’m not sure how to make this sweet hand towel. I mean, blot your lipstick directly onto a vintage tea towel? Maybe. More likely there is a more enduring method with fabric paint, though I haven’t tried it out. What a playful idea.
Another easy and precious touch in decorating spaces seasonally: sticking holiday prints in your frames.
Moving into the upstairs study, this room was designed by Alison Thomas.
“For you are my lamp, O Lord, and my God lightens my darkness.” 2 Samuel 22:29
I love this space. What an immense greeting to a room: copious amounts of greenery. I’m all over it. I also love the quirky arrows in the garland on the bookshelf.
I thought the flag was a really interesting touch. Very Americana. And that hide. Oh that hide. It’s so lovely and it also provides great textural variety.
This picture is proof that Christmas decor can be masculine, subdued, and natural. That bowl of antlers and framed feathers: I love. What a great idea. It makes the space feel wintery and even luxurious.
Come back tomorrow to see the kitchen and dining rooms! Thanks for stopping by!
