Woodland Christmas Guest Room Tour

I’m going to test your literary knowledge today, okay?

I’m going to quote a paragraph from a book, and you see if you can tell me what book it’s from.

It’s a classic, so I think most of you will know it.

Here we go …

“Christmas was coming.

The little log house was almost buried in snow. Great drifts were banked against the walls and windows, and in the morning when Pa opened the door, there was a wall of snow as high as Laura’s head.  Pa took the shovel and shoveled it away, and then he shoveled a path to the barn, where the horses and the cows were snug and warm in their stalls.”

So, do you know what book that paragraph came from?

When I envision the perfect Christmas, I picture a little cabin nestled in a woodland forest.

All you can see for miles around is tall evergreen trees and sparkling white snow.

All you can hear is the sound of your footsteps crunching in the fresh snow and the wind whistling through the trees.

But off in the distance, you hear the sound of sleigh bells.

Your family is arriving to celebrate Christmas with you.

Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

Well, we don’t have any snow yet, and my house isn’t surrounded by a woodland forest, but a girl can dream a little, right?

What I do have is a field full of wild evergreen trees growing adjacent to our yard, so I decided to decorate the guest room like a little cabin nestled in a woodland forest.

I used lots of branch clippings, some of my favorite ironstone pitchers and stoneware bowls, and pops of red throughout the room.

I got some buffalo check flannel sheets (affiliate link) that are so cozy and perfect for the cabin look.

I found the ‘Tis the Season pillow at Sam’s Club.

At the foot of the bed, I filled my upcycled clementine crate with Christmas lights, more branch cuttings, and pine cones.

I hung my rustic framed Silent Night print between the bed and the old wooden ladder.

I filled all the ladder rungs with branch clippings, pine cones, and some rusty looking bells (affiliate link).

My favorite old wooden table looks festive with stoneware bowls and ironstone pitchers filled with evergreen clippings and some rolled old book pages.

Seriously, you can tuck evergreen clippings in anything and it looks like instant Christmas!

On the other side of the room, I hung an evergreen garland above the window and added a wreath to the other old ladder.

My rusty pitchfork got decorated too.

I’m not in a hurry for snow, but it’s the only thing needed to complete my little woodland cabin guest room.

So, did you guess what book I quoted in the beginning?

If you guessed Little House in the Big Woods, you are correct! 🙂

  10. That sounds to me very like Laura Ingalls Wilder – not sure which book, maybe Little House in the Big Woods. I read these aloud to my daughter when she was young. Wonderful memory.

    Sounds a lot like Laura Ingalls wilder – not sure which book maybe Little House in the Big Woods. I read these aloud to my daughter when she was young. Brought back good memories:=)

  12. What a wonderful retreat. You made it look like a real cabin in the woods.

  13. This is such a cozy, welcoming guest room! I am loving the buffalo check right now, too…just bought a duvet cover and shams for our bedroom for winter. Your decorating in this room is so lovely!

  14. Very charming little cabin. Yes, I did guess right on the quotation. We read those books outloud to our oldest daughter one snowy winter when we lived out in the country and heated the house with a woodstove. It was so cozy. I look back on that time with great nostalgia. No matter that the woodstove gave me asthma the whole winter! It was still one of my favorite winter family times.

  15. Angie you created such a wonderful cabin in the woods at Christmas time in your sweet guest room. You have the best ideas.
    Joy

  16. ENCARNA SÁNCHEZ LEÓN says:

    Angie, es precioso, acogedor y cálido el ambiente que has creado en la cabaña!!
    Por favor, ¿Me puedes decir a qué libro pertenece el párrafo? Soy española y no lo conozco.
    Felices fiestas y próspero año nuevo.
    Saludos desde Madrid.
