Do you decorate your bedroom for the holiday season? It’s one of my favorite rooms to decorate. Today I’m taking you on a tour of my vintage-inspired bedroom for Christmas.
I’ve already shared my living room and kitchen Christmas home tour. And today I’m showing you my vintage-inspired bedroom. But first, let me share some fun facts about this room…
- This room is 101-years-old, and if you haven’t already guessed, so is my house.
- There is a mix of vintage and vintage-inspired goodies throughout.
- It is the smallest room of the house besides the bathrooms.
There’s Plenty of Vintage Chrismas Inspiration Today
Today I am joining my blogging friends for A Vintage Christmas Tour of Homes, hosted by my friend Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home.
If you just came over from Coco at The Crowned Goat, welcome to Shiplap and Shells. CoCo has the most amazing style and I’m sure you found so much inspiration from the traditional Christmas Bliss Barracks tour she shared.
If this is your first time here, my blog is all about home, garden, and the Pacific Northwest lifestyle. Make sure you check out my Home Tour and About Me pages to see more about the Shiplap and Shells blog. I hope you will become a regular.
Very Vintage Christmas Bedroom Tour
Let’s start with my favorite piece in the bedroom. This antique cabinet wasn’t always built into the wall.
When we first moved in, we were greeted by a stand-alone dark wood cabinet. We didn’t have much room in the house to display it, but when we were doing some remodeling, we were able to build it into the wall and use it as a dresser.

This Chrismas Color Theme
I made the choice to keep the blue and white that’s been in my bedroom since summer when I got some new bedding from Hallstrom Home.
There are literally no Christmas colors in this room.

Garland and Twinkle Lights Keep it Simple
I try to keep Christmas decorating very simple in the bedroom, especially since we don’t spend much time here. Bay leaf garland and twinkle lights frame the window.

A Very Vintage Nightstand
As you have probably already guessed, my small bedroom can’t fit much furniture in it. But I was able to fit this cute little vintage nightstand in the corner.
The nightstand is one of my favorite vintage pieces because it has so much character, Do you see the difference in space from the outside edge to the drawer between the left and right side?
Here’s one of the many mercury glass pieces I have in my bedroom.
I have a serious thing for vintage alarm clocks. The problem is that I don’t find many in good condition and if they are, the price is sky-high.
Vintage books are such a great decor idea no matter the season.
Another Built-In Created for Additional Space
Here’s another built-in but this one is new. We added the beadboard to make it look a bit older.
The Coastal Christmas Tree
I thought I would try a coastal Christmas tree in the bedroom this season but I really want to create an all vintage ornament Christmas tree next year.
A vintage galvanized bucket is used as the container for the Christmas tree. And the beveled mirror behind the tree was bought at a vintage shop.

The Faux Fireplace Mantel is the Star of the Show
This faux fireplace mantel was built by my husband, inspired by several vintage pieces that I had found over the past years.
We don’t have a fireplace in our home and I desperately missed not only having a fire on a cold winter day but decorating the mantel for the holidays.
See how we made this DIY faux mantel surround HERE.
I wanted to keep the mantel decor simple this year. I used the NOEL silver stocking hangers that I bought from Pottery Barn years ago. They don’t carry them anymore but I did find a few on Etsy.
SHOP CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS
The Bay leaf garland was also from Pottery Barn many years ago. I added lights, ornaments, and pinecones.
The larger cream mirror is vintage while the other two are only vintage-inspired.
The cream Christmas stockings are from Target and the navy and cream striped ticking stockings were from Hallstrom Home.
I have a lot of mercury glass decor in the bedroom and love the vintage feel whether something is old or newer.
Next on the tour is my friend Kelly at the Tattered Pew. I always love seeing her beautiful decor and I know you will too. Have you seen her gorgeous new house?
