Beautiful holiday-themed bedroom with Christmas decorations, a Christmas tree, and potted Poinsettias.

‘Tis the season to plan for guests. Whether it’s been one year or longer since your family gathered together, you want to ensure a comfortable guest experience with plenty of holiday flair. If you’re not sure where to start, City Mattress has you covered. So, grab your favorite hot beverage, cozy up, and read on for holiday guest room ideas!

Christmas Colors for this year

When we think of Christmas, often the first colors that come to mind are rich greens and reds. However, there are a variety of themes and color combinations that will bring the Christmas spirit to life. Contemporary colors such as blue or magenta can also create a festive vibe, and metallic patterns capture the same magic as reflective baubles and tinsel! Pastels have a way of connecting us with childhood memories, which make them great for a quaint holiday theme. There are also a range of colors that evoke an earthy, natural feel, reminiscent of pine cones, evergreens, and fallen leaves.

Holiday Bedding Ideas

Starting with the bed and building outward, your guest bed sheet set should set the tone. Our Madison Park Essentials Wrinkle-Free Luxurious Satin Sheet Set makes a bold statement, and comes in colors such as red, gold, light gray (which appears silver with satin), navy (a rich blue), and chocolate (for earthy tones). The luxurious feel of wrinkle-free satin is sure to bring visions of sugarplums along with a good night’s sleep.

Your choice of comforter or duvet should compliment your sheets while keeping with the theme of Christmas. For a simpler look, the Blue Ridge Home Reversible Microfiber Down Alternative Comforter comes in a variety of bold colors with softer reverse. Choose from Navy/Light Blue, Platinum/White, Chocolate/Khaki, Olive/Sage, or Burgundy/Mauve, depending on your theme. If contemporary blue is part of your palette, our Madison Park Signature Indigo Sky Embroidered Faux Linen Oversized Comforter Set might tie it together in style.

Our duvet sets are another fantastic way to make a cozy Christmas. Ann Gish has a way with metallics, such as our Ann Gish Terrazzo Silver 3-Piece Duvet Cover Set or the Ann Gish Scratch Abstract 3-Piece Duvet Cover Set, which bring classic metallics into the modern age. For a truly one-of-a-kind look, check out our Ann Gish Arabesque Paisley Jacquard 3-Piece Duvet Cover Set

Other Christmas Ideas for the Guest Room

Beyond the bed, there are many options for building a Christmas theme. Curtains are a great way to change the look of a room while reducing the amount of light at bedtime. Our SunSmart Everly Branch Jacquard Total Blackout Grommet Top Curtain Panel features an elegant branch pattern in gold, silver or navy blue. Another great choice is the Intelligent Design Raina Metallic Print Total Blackout Grommet Top Curtain Panel, with modern metallic print. Look at Gray/Silver, Ivory/Gold, or Navy/Silver especially for awesome holiday choices. Ann Gish makes another appearance here with the Ann Gish Aura Metallic Jacquard Room Darkening Curtain Panel in Champagne and Gold, as well as our Ann Gish Terrazzo Silver Room Darkening Curtain Panel in Silver.

Adding an accent lamp for the nightstand is another good way to enhance your theme. Our Nova Lighting Moonlight Sky Fabric Table Lamp evokes the sense of a winter’s night, or unlock the magic of the holiday season with the Nova Lighting Eagle Rock Walnut Satin Accent Lamp. Go modern and vintage at the same time with the Edison-style Nova Lighting Surfrider Ocean Blue Table Lamp, for a soft glow reminiscent of a Rockwell painting.

Remember the Little Things

Round out your Holiday theme with festive sights and scents. Add a few candles to compliment your color palette, for instance. Fragrances such as cinnamon and gingerbread warm the spirit, while scents like cedar, pine, and fir tree give rise to Christmas tree memories. Orange and apple aromas are also excellent choices, as are vanilla and candy cane. Besides the fragrances, the warm glow of candles in a darkened room set the tone for a holiday snuggle.
