Country French Christmas Touches
I love to add Country French Christmas touches to a room, and why not add them to my bedroom? I added a mini boxwood wreath to the foot of my bed. Boxwood wreaths especially the small ones work well, just about any where.
I also put a small tree in here. It’s so cozy, I don’t know why I didn’t do this before!
I wanted to add lots of fresh greenery, but they don’t have any in the stores yet. But I found several goodies in my holiday closet.
Homemade snow globes are super easy and fun to make.
Angels are perfect for a Country French Christmas feel. They are so pretty and perfect for the Christmas season.
I added this little tree in here also. Rather than add lights to this one, I just decided to go simple. It has the snowflakes, a pearl garland, and little mini grain sack style stockings. It’s in an old iron bucket.
More gold angels adorn the stacking Florentine tables.
The wreath below did not come with the horn, but it was a perfect fit!
A musical angel guards the antique pine armoire.
And another one is stationed on the little ottoman.
I love this cozy corner in my bedroom. It’s perfect for taking a nap or reading a favorite book.
This is the side of my bedroom. I don’t usually show this side, but it’s all ready for Christmas today.
Here’s the bed with the blue bolster pillow.
On the other side of the bedroom, I stuck with my blue motif, and did not end up using my red Christmas pillows.
This is the view from the bed. I used what I had. I’ll add greenery later. I think some evergreen branches would be so pretty in that basket on top of the armoire.
This is so pretty, Anita. I love how that wreath fit in the horn and the angels are so pretty. I need that blue bolster pillow. 🙂

Really pretty Anita and I too found the wreath in the horn to be such a charming touch!
Thanks Janet. I appreciate your lovely comment.

Anita….such a most beautiful respite surrounded by precious things that you have gathered to adorn this room….So many exquisite Holiday details. I must say that I so admire all of your beautiful slipcovered items.
Beautiful decor in the bedroom, Anita! I love those gift boxes!
Though decorating for Christmas can be time consuming I know my family enjoys and appreciates it. With busy lives of children and careers my daughters have little time for it! Thanks for the inspiration!
It all looks so pretty and festive! I have never seen anything like the chair and ottoman in the “reading nook”. It does look inviting – curl up with a book or watch a movie!
I’ve never decorated bedrooms before, but I’m thinking about it this year. Thanks for the inspiration. Is that a Susan Rios painting next to your amoire? Love it!

What a charming Christmas room Anita! Love that sweet wreath at the foot of your bed.
Thanks Courtney. Can’t wait to go see what you did!!

So many beautiful ideas for the holiday! I love the quiet, comfortable feeling of it all! Thanks Cedar Hill!
We are in the middle of remodeling the MBA/MBR this year , but I am looking forward to decorating next year , I am keeping your good ideas! Thanks for sharing.
I love that you decorated the bedroom – that’s something I’ve never done but now I’m thinking maybe I should!
All the sweet French touches are so perfect in here, from the boxwood wreath to the homemade snow globes (we did those one year and they are so cute!) But I think my absolute favorite thing in the room is the small green tree that you decorated in white and put in the old metal bucket – so fabulous!
Thank you Sheila!! Hugs.
Thank you Sheila!! Hugs.

Anita, there are so many glorious details here! I love the tree in the bucket and the entire side of the room with that stunning settee is enchanting!! Yet the other side is lovely too… 🙂
Hi Anita! LOVE the tree in the bucket! Your bedroom is a Christmas dream. Hugs, Pat at Bringing French Country Home

Oh girl, as a former French Horn player, that wreath in the hunting horn just tugged at my music loving heart.
Anita, it looks lovely. I’ve never added a touch of Christmas to our master, but I’ve been considering what I might do this year. It will be simple, but I like the idea of an added holiday touch.
Anita, I love your beautiful French country bedroom. That Christmas tree with the pink/purple ornaments is adorable!
Thank you so much Angelina.

Love all the ideas you have for the guest bedroom…especially the mini boxwood wreath…is it a 7 1/2″ wreath or larger? I love Christmas and am in hog heaven looking at all you have to offer!
Beverly Poag says
Why did I say “guest” bedroom…guess because that’s where I’ll be putting the mini boxwood wreath when it comes…found one online and just ordered it! It’ll be so pretty on my French iron bed. I also put a German Feather Christmas tree, decorated with antique miniature glass ornament, in the guest bedroom too!
love the wrapping paper. Did I miss where you found it? I can think of many ways to use it throughout my home year round.
It’s not wrapping paper, The boxes came that way from Target.
Hello Anita, who did you get to make the slipcover for your French loveseat. I have 2 of them (one for each room at the foot of each bed). Is there a pattern that you can recommend? Please let me know. I find this to be so useful and stylish to have one made , especially in a neutral pattern when I want to change my bed sets or my room color schemes!
The slipcovers I made myself. It’s impossible to have one pattern that will work for any settee since they are each so different. Typically slipcovers are custom made for each piece of furniture. Check out Youtube for instructions. I think if you are an experienced at sewing, you will do just fine with no pattern. I hope it goes well!!! I have a few tutorials on making slipcovers that might also help. https://cedarhillfarmhouse.com/my-slipcovering-tips/
Thank you so much! I discovered your blog during one of the home tours last year. I’m a true francophile and have really enjoyed reading your posts!
Oh Renee, thank you so much!!! I’m so glad you are enjoying the blog.
