Gifting a Bedroom Refresh
Last year around this time, I was feverishly creating my stepson’s new room. He was coming to live with us & I had to create a bedroom for him in less than a month. He arrived a few days before Christmas, so we decided to make his room, his gift. And it was amazing. He walked in, was completely surprised & more than anything, grateful.
This year, I wanted to do something similar for my father. At the end of October he gave us quite a scare & spent close to two weeks in the hospital, most of which in Intensive Care. Fortunately, he is well on his way to recovery & feeling stronger each day. I thought that it would be a fun surprise to transform his bedroom for him as he was spending a bit more time in there.
This was far from the complete overhaul that happened last year, but there was still a big impact from switching up his bedding & adding a few accessories to his existing space.
Using all of his furniture, I dressed his bed in cozy new bedding from Martha Stewart Collection at Macy’s. The warm flannel sheets, shams & duvet covers are sure to keep him toasty on the colder winter nights. I mixed the large scale plaid, with a neutral ivory sheet to coordinate with the Euro Shams from his previous set. And I added in my favorite leopard as a fun accent. I like how the caramel tones pick up the brass railheads on his tufted leather sleigh bed.
Now he can relax in style & comfort while reading… (that is a first edition Charles Dickens collection of Christmas Stories!) Perfect for the season.
I also added in one of my favorite mirrors for the cost. It is the perfect scale to compliment his furniture.
This duvet pattern is sold out at the moment, but they have many other colors & patterns available here. And right now the entire Martha Stewart Bedding Collection from Macy’s is on sale, plus get an extra 15% off using the promo code MERRY. So if you are still looking to dress up your room for the holidays or add an extra gift under the tree, these would make great additions.
