Cozy Ski Chalet Themed Guest Bedroom for the Holidays


This year I am pretty excited to be able to have a guest bedroom to offer my sister Kim and Aunt Ann as a place to call their own here at 21 Rosemary Lane on Christmas eve. 

You see each year Kim ends up staying in one of the kid's rooms while my 85 year old aunt opts for the living room sofa. (We always joke that she is waiting patiently with mistletoe in hand for Santa to come down the chimney for a little smooch!)


Now since we have done over the old kiddie playroom into a more than spacious guest bedroom, I most enthusiastically decorated it for Christmas. Keeping with the vintage theme of this space, I decided to give the room a nice cozy ski chalet vibe.


I recently purchased these pretty pillow covers with the old vintage skis from Pottery Barn. Then a standard size pillow was stuffed into each cover. I think it seemed to work pretty well!


The Norman Rockwell plates were gifted to us by my dear friend Donna's mother when we moved into our home here some 12 years ago. A wispy grapevine wreath adorned with some faux berries was hung as a festive frame around the plates.


The large black and red plaid throws at the foot of each bed were purchased last year at Walmart for about $10 each. I thought they were the perfect accent for the white bedding.


On the bureau mirror is hung my acorn cap wreath. To see how this was made just click here.



I picked up two Christmas stockings  at the Christmas Tree Shop and hooked them onto a couple of the bureau drawer pulls. They were only $5 each.


And then of course the inspiration for the room are these vintage skis I found at a yard sale last year.


Complete with a pretty vintage postcard and bamboo ski poles.


I hope this space provides a cozy retreat for both my aunt and my sister this year. Now I have to concentrate on getting the tree up and finish my decorating in both the foyer and living room. Down comes the pretty oranges and browns of the autumn and in moves the bling of the holiday season! Can't wait!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!
