Susan’s Christmas Tour Part IV  The Master Bedroom

Susan’s Christmas Tour Part IV The Master Bedroom

Christmas decor needn’t be limited to the family shared spaces! I truly enjoy the small touches I add to my master suite, including the master bath, bedroom and dressing room. My husband and I (and occasionally two granddaughters) are the ones who enjoy it, but our master suite is a real retreat and it is worthy of a few touches to bring the Christmas spirit into this loved space.

The master bedroom design incorportes soft neutrals, metallic grasscloth wallcovering (somehow it looks pixelated in this photo!), very subtle grayed-blue (SW Conservative Gray) and white accents with pops of polished nickle in the furniture and light fixtures.

One easy thing you can do is add a seasonal pillow or two just to cheer up the room for the Holidays! The one I selected is an oversized lumbar with a field of snowy trees. It happened to be the perfect hues of the room and I replaced several of my custom pillows for this one just for a month!

Bernhardt queen bed and night stands, porcelain flower sculptures over the bed, custom Schumacher fabrics and Tom Felicia for Kravet draperies. Fabulous Fur throw. Voila! #purestyle


I added a favorite sparkly white wreath to this fabulous Caracole floor mirror with a simple suction cup and garnished it with a dressmaker’s gray satin ribbon.  Then, I added these glittery ornaments in several diameters to the frame work of my Robert Abbey Bling chandelier, tied on with a delightful sheer gray ribbon. After surveying the look, I decided to add several glamourous snowflakes. For a little bit of additional comfort and style, I threw a small Tibetan lamb throw over my ottoman. It’s #ohsosusan for comfort and cozy movie watching!

The master bedroom retreat welcomes Christmas along with the rest of the house!

Atop this silver leaf and white dresser by Belle Meade, I gathered my collection of aqua and silver miniature tinsel and bottle brush trees. I was so happy to find a home for these favorites in our new home! This favorite large footed vessel was filled with oversized hand blown pale, pale blue Polish glass ornaments and a few of my favorite small accent ornaments were sprinkled in. So pleasing! I can never get tired the the multiple uses for these darlings.


On top of this coordinating Belle Meade jewelry cabinet I placed a cherished blue reproduction mache house that lights and brings true joy to me, along with the last of my aqua table top trees to create a little Christmas story.

A miniature tinsel tree holds the remaining small hand blown glass ornaments in this color story. Beautiful and so inviting.

The master bedroom dressers find homes for some favorite collections of Susan's holiday favorites!

I really encourage you not to forget your master bathroom! (Especially if it’s a spa retreat like this one!)

Hanging in the center panel of the plantation shutters is a cherished sugared holly wreath, tied with a single narrow velvet ribbon in olive green and adorned with the accent color of the room; hot pink! (more of my favorite small hand blown Polish ornaments, #obviously). I threw a handful of hot pink ornaments into the glam bubble bowl to bring in the Christmas spirit.

Below is  closeup of the bubble bowl, normally filled with white coral sculptures and hot pink orchid blooms. No need to remove these, just make room for some Christmas companions!

The last touch was a snowy bough to the bold phalaenopsis orchid . It turned my everyday beauty into a Holiday beauty!

I hope this little tour of my master suite has inspired you to add some Holiday charm to your personal spaces…not just banisters and great room mantles. And there’s still a few more rooms we will discuss…powder rooms, guest room and kitchens!
