This is the time in my house when decor gets a little bit awkward.
It’s fall. There are leaves and hayrides and pumpkins and cups of hot chocolate with tiny marshmallows and sweaters that make you feel all cozy inside.
But my heart?
My heart will always belong to Christmas.
I have to hold myself back from not leaving a tree up until the Fourth of July. I’ve actually contemplated keeping a tree year-round and dressing it up in different outfits like people do with those ducks in their front yards.
But now I’ve discovered a secret. Something that bridges fall and Christmas and you can add it to your house and still feel like you have a foot in both seasons. It’s the perfect amount of Christmas without going all Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.
Want to know what it is?
All you have to do to add a little Fallistmas into your home is layer in a little plaid to your space.
Like this bedroom.
I added this plaid rug.
Isn’t it amazing?
I got it at Walmart and you can see it here.
I ordered the 7’10” x 9’10” and the best part?
IT’S UNDER $100.
I know, RIGHT?
Merry Fallistmas to me.
The description says red and black and yellow.
But in the room it takes on the navy of the walls and the white of the bedspreads.
It also comes in blue and black and cream black.
One quick note. Last time I posted some of these Walmart deals they sold out super quickly. But the next day, they restocked. So if you go over there and the rug is sold out, just check back tomorrow.
I also found some red and white pillows over there.
Like the red and white buffalo check pillow that comes with a DOWN insert and it’s only $11.00.
You can see it here.
And this red and white snowflake pillow with a down insert.
It has a tassel on all four corners, too.
You can see it here.
Walmart home has an amazing, inexpensive, holiday collection this year.
You can see and shop it here.
Other than that?
I got the room ready by tucking a few quilts and extra pillows into the baskets at the end of the bed.
And fluffing the duvet covers.
One quick tip: if you size up your down inserts it makes the duvet so much fluffier. For example, add a queen insert to a full-sized duvet cover.
They are so much poufier.
The paint color on the walls is SW Naval and the trim is SW Extra White.
I found this vintage table at the thrift store and my father-in-law cut it down to fit in this space perfectly.
It pulls out and doubles as a desk.
I added a few of these little trees to add some winter greenery.
And fluffed the jute curtains.
And stacked a few books on the side table.
This is an old fabric bolt holder that doubles as a bookshelf.
You can still see the measuring stick on the side where they used to measure the fabric.
I just tucked a few of the boys books and some vintage encyclopedias on the shelf.
The room is ready for the holidays.
I’m leaving it like this until Valentine’s Day.
And maybe later.
What do you think about outfits for those little trees?
Asking for a friend. 🙂
