White Christmas tree for a relaxing retreat and I find white Christmas trees to be the easiest to style. In our master bedroom we’ve had a white Christmas tree for quite a few years now. I love the serenity and calm feeling that I get when I’m sitting in my chair reading or on my laptop with the soft glow. Today I’m joining some friends in the Seasonal Simplicity Tour hosted by Krista of Happy Housie. If you’re coming over from the talented Bree of Rooms For Rent, welcome in! But…I have a secret about my white tree this year…can you guess?
The secret is…that my WHITE CHRISTMAS TREE is NAKED!
I didn’t use any ornaments and all that I did was to take it out of the box and quickly set it up. A tree skirt underneath is the only adornment. In THIS POST I talked about how I make my tree look fuller and I put it back in the box that way last year.
Did you know that if you purchase COMMERCIAL PLASTIC WRAP you can leave your ornaments and garland on the tree until next year? While I’ve never done this myself I have seen it done and I used to use the stuff back when I was shipping chandeliers. It’s pretty awesome actually. Simple white garland on the mantel to coordinate with the white Christmas tree and some birch logs in the faux fireplace are all that I did this year. I did hang some ornaments and mini twinkle lights on my antique mannequin, so consider her my tree!
I recently redesigned the master bedroom and am not quite finished yet, but getting there. Once the master bathroom renovation is complete (soon!) I’m concentrate on finishing up this room. Although I love the vintage nightstands they are under-scaled now and I need some more storage, so I’m on the hunt!
Simple white bedding is perfect for Christmas and winter as long as you add some texture. In THIS POST you can see my old white tufted headboard that I replaced with THIS BED. It’s currently out of stock and definitely worth waiting until January for and several of you actually purchased it after seeing it in my BEDROOM MAKEOVER POST. When I change a room I either give away or sell the items that I’m no longer using, so as not to be wasteful.

Seeking simplicity I strung some white twinkle lights over the bed. I put a few small nails in the wall to hold them and draped them to form an abstract white Christmas tree. I’m pretty sure that every single room needs at least one touch of whimsy and shouldn’t take itself too seriously!
A candle and some blush pink ranunculus from my florist make it the happiest time of all. The lamps are vintage alabaster that I’ve had for years…just in case you wanted to know. I’m super happy with my window blinds in this room that are from SELECT BLINDS.
Texture, texture and texture…with my NEW CHAIR and I love wrapping up in a faux fur to relax.
It’s really the little things that make me happy and with the white Christmas tree and a few other elements I think that less is definitely more.
