Christmas Decor...for a Girl's Room

In case you missed it, yesterday, we discussed simple ways to dress up your boys' rooms for Christmas.  A few swaps in the bedding, a few adornments and, of course, the all important tree.  Today, it's time for the girls! 

Several of the main elements were used in both spaces, but we swapped the red for a muted pink and the lumberjack feel for a little whimsy by way of snowflakes and texture.  And, again, all of these items are from Target.  There are so many great deals that can really transform your child's space. I can't wait to get to work in my girls' rooms!

Jon has an off day before he heads out on another trip, so we're starting to deck the halls today!   

Christmas Decor... for a Boy's Room

If you're like us, you want the holidays to last a lot longer than the calendar says they should.  One of us (*cough* Jessica) may have even put up our tree before mid November. :)

There's just so much joy, sparkle (literally) and comfort in Christmas decor.  In fact, we love it so much we thought, "Why not extend the holly and jolly to the kids' bedrooms?"  I mean if there were ever such a place for wonder and delight it's there, right?

Starting with the gentlemen...Here's how to dress up your boy's room with a few touches of holiday cheer...all from Target!  There are some great deals...$20 tree, $14 flannel twin sheets, etc.  And they are all pieces you could use for years to come.  My favorite piece might be that wood garland.  So cute! 

We hope you enjoy decking the halls!  We'll be back with decor for a girl's room later.

Get the Look-Monochromatic Bedroom

Have you guys seen the new home of Natalie Morales from the Today show?  She reportedly just purchased a home in Brentwood, CA for her new West Coast gig, and the listing photos are gorgeous.  In case you missed it, I'll give you a mini tour of my favorite rooms.

But first, let's all take in this beautiful back exterior.  Would wouldn't want this to be the back of their house??  Look at all of those porches and windows!

A simple and stunning entry greets guests when they walk in the home.  I love those oversized sconces and artwork.

This monochromatic transitional look has the best lighting in the house--natural lighting from those huge glass doors!  I will never tire of those iron and glass doors.

Again, there isn't a ton of color in the space, but that doesn't mean it lacks interest.  The leather mixed with the wood, mixed with the iron, mixed the's good.

If you're going to go for some color, why not do it in the office/library?  It is typically a place that is used for igniting creativity and thought, and this blue will do just that.  The light fixture and Spanish style desk with those gorgeous turned legs aren't so bad either...

Now for the bedroom, a place of relaxation and rest.  What's more fitting than calming, tone-on-tone furnishings?

Me and my neutral-loving ways were instantly attracted to this monochromatic bedroom.  It's very easy for a completely light room to look very sterile and flat, but the stagers here did a great job adding warmth and layers through varying textures.  That's the key!  I decided to do a "Get the Look" to show you how it could easily translate into your own bedroom.
