The holidays are a wonderfully magical time of year. Trees blinking in multi-colored lights, shiny balls of glass peeking from beneath garlands of gold, red, and blue. The twinkling holiday lights are enchanting indoors and out.
It's hard for me to keep my hands off the ornaments till December 1st but as soon as that calendar page flips is when the dust starts flying. I open my secret closet and start pulling out the holiday goodies.
Garland, tinsel, tiny lights, silver balls, and believe it or not there are also 3 Christmas trees in there. One is about 7 feet tall, one 4 feet tall, and then there is a little mini fiber optic tree as well. I love them all equally.
For today though let's take a peek at decorating ideas for just one small room in the house. It's the bathroom and its petite size makes it the perfect room to decorate for the holidays. You can quickly and easily scatter a lot of glitz and zazzle into that tiny space.
Counter top, Bath, Toilet, Linens and Lotions are Key Points
The bathroom is one of the most highly utilized rooms in the home which makes it the perfect room to decorate. Virtually everyone visits it at some point throughout the day. The small size of the latrine also makes it quite an easy space to festive up for the season.
There are a few main areas of the room which will add the greatest enhancement with the counter tops, linens, bath, and toilet being key areas.
A holiday shower curtain, matching toilet and rug set, and theme towel set is a simple way to add a burst of Christmas to this room. A bowl of holiday ornaments or a small tree set on the counter can be a simple way to finish off your decorating.
Of course there are many ways to go more elaborate in your seasonal bathroom decor. Never under estimate the attraction of a little glitz and glamor.

Selecting a Holiday Color Scheme for Your Room
To add a holiday splash to your bath decor begin by selecting a specific color theme or decorating scheme to apply to this room. Your designated colors will often naturally morph into a niche theme for your decor.
A traditional color choice is one of reds and greens with splashes of other colors tossed in to the mix. These bright colors add an exciting cheerful atmosphere to the home. The red and green Christmas colors are often used in combination with each other or with an assortment of holiday colors.
White or Beige used alone or combined with one or more of the other Christmas colors can add a charming elegance or a deeply religious undertone to the room. These calming neutral colors are often combined with gold or silver to add a regal feel to the room. They can also be used to cheer up a room such as in the traditional combo of red and white for a candy cane theme.
The colors of gold and silver have long been associated with wealth and as such they add a rich, regal, respectful, or sentimental feel when added into home decor. Blue is another color which is quite often used to add a distinctive seasonal atmosphere to the home. It is often combined with white to create a night time Noel or frosty winter atmosphere.
