Add holiday cheer to your guest bedroom with plaid shams

During the holidays, it’s all about going home and making memories with the people you love. Or in some cases, it’s about the people your love visiting your home! If you’re hosting family or friends this holiday season, we suggest making your guest bedroom feel like a festive retreat. After all, they’ve been traveling and are away from their own nest, so they deserve their own space that feels extra cozy and special.

Bunny Williams' Live Magnolia Wreath and Garland inspired this fireplace mantel

When we start dreaming of Christmas, one of the first things we think about it our fireplace mantel. This part of the home always acts like a focal point, and our mantel inspiration is easy to spread throughout the house. We love to start with a theme or a color palette, then let that guide all of our decor choices. This year, we were really digging a nostalgic Christmas spirit, rustic elements, and also a shimmery black and white look. See how we interpreted all of these onto the mantel and steal the look yourself!
