Perhaps the only thing I like better than plaid is tartan plaid. There is just something about it in classic Christmas colors that has me swooning over it during the holidays. Swooning like a girl at a Harry Styles concert. Or a girl looking at a box of doughnuts–both of which I have done.
I am joining some crazy talented blog friends to share some of our holiday rooms this week. Don’t believe me? Check out this lineup! If you’re visiting here from Shand at Quarters One, welcome! I’m glad you’re here!
Tartan Plaid Bedroom
I don’t decorate a ton in our bedrooms now that my kids are older (read: they don’t care anymore), so it was the perfect opportunity to spruce up my son’s room/guestroom. Something else I never do? Decorate with red! THIS was a fun one.
I have come to realize that I love to decorate, but I don’t necessarily love the prop styling that comes along with modern blogging. I promised myself to use things I have and not make it too fake. Does that make sense?
I didn’t primp with the pillows at ALL until my dog did a body dive into them in the middle of the shoot. He was quickly escorted and shut out of the room as I plucked dog hair out of the navy blanket. Lord help me.
Speaking of pillows! Va-va-voom!! Am I right? They are the stars of the show. Even better is that I found the tartan pillows on Amazon, and they are so inexpensive! I saved so much money! But then I bought more of them because they were so well-priced. So I didn’t save so much money! Woops.
I just love the look of a daybed partnered with numerous messy-ish pillows. Something about it says, “Come lay here. Don’t do any work. It’ll be fine. I’m serious.” It’s a talkative daybed.
Want a little bit of full disclosure (oxymoron much, Chris)? When my son left for Europe, I gutted his room and ripped out the carpet. I didn’t replace it yet. The picture below will show you the subfloor under the bed! I think it’s high time bloggers start showing the ugly truths, eh? Just me? 🙂
Whatever. It is what it is. But it does make me chuckle (and cry) at how deceiving pictures can be.
I know it’s a lot of pictures, but it’s really one of my favorites. Tartan plaid has my heart forever. And so does Harry Styles. And Harry Styles IN tartan plaid.
If you’re jonesing for some more Christmas bedrooms (let’s pretend you are), here are a couple I’ve done in the past!
