How to Transition a Playroom for the Holidays

How to Transition a Playroom for the Holidays

Do you have a Christmas tradition? As a new family of 3, we are always trying to think of fun ways to incorporate the festive spirit into the holiday season. For me, that always starts with décor. Something about joyful Christmas adornments just makes us all want to snuggle up by the warm fire with a hot cup of cocoa. Since Kai’s playroom is one we spend most of our time in, we decided why not start there! Today I’ll be sharing with you 3 tips I learned from transforming Kai’s play room/ great room for the holiday season.

First and foremost, Pier 1 Imports is my go to for holiday decorating!

Pier 1 Imports' holiday collection draws inspiration from all around the world, so no matter the theme, they’ve got just the thing! I also love their vast selection at great price points that gets us more magic for the money. With over 1,000 stores and 24-hour shopping online, you are bound to find what you love! I loved seeing the store displays in person and gathering inspiration from their designers!

Secondly, greenery makes all the difference!

You guys know I am a huge fan of greenery in any space! It’s no wonder at Christmas time, I go all out! I love how greenery instantly livens up the space. Whether it’s wreaths, garlands or festive arrangements, Pier 1 Imports has an abundance of vivid greenery! One of the décor elements I always get the most comments about is the wreath arrangement on our wall. This is simply done by hanging holiday wreaths in various sizes in a flowy pattern. All it takes is a couple of nails to make a big impression. Also add greenery in unexpected spaces like on top of the peacock chair or on a teepee post to draw your eyes across the whole room.

Some of the greenery pieces used in this play room are:

Finally, texture is everything!

One of our Christmas traditions is decorating the tree in our Christmas pajamas and listening to holiday music. Of course, a snuggle session is always called for during the festivities. The rich textures of the season make this playroom that much more cozy and ideal for all the snuggles! Layer fur with velvet alongside flannels to recreate a warm and inviting feel! Wood tones and matte metals also helps keep things organic and earthy. Get the look with the following layered pieces:


In the coming years, I am looking forward to adding to our tradition by picking out new ornaments for each year. You know I’ll be shopping at Pier 1 Imports for those nostalgic pieces too! Have fun decorating!
