Christmas is the perfect opportunity to pull out those vintage mementoes you've kept tucked away in an attic or closet.

This chest of drawers in a little boys' bedroom by Mallory Mathison hosts a tableaux incorporating thoughtful details like a silver cup ornamented with a preserved boxwood orb, family photos, a vintage child's toy and the lovely, unexpected detail of fresh flowers.

Talented Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison created this themed Little Boy Blue bedroom decked out beautifully in child-friendly holiday style in Francophile shades of blue and red. Each twin bed comes with a charming lit Christmas tree with fire-safe LED lights. Parents can treat these trees as advent calendars and nestle a different gift for each day leading up to Christmas or Hanukkah in the boughs or at the foot of the tree. Children will love the cozy glow of the tree lights as they drift off to sleep and these trees also make the perfect holiday night light says Mathison. Rather than cut trees, Mathison used potted evergreens that can be planted in the garden when the holidays are over.
The homeowners wanted a room that could grow up with their little boy, so designers chose timeless pieces of furniture and base linens for that specific purpose. Designers took liberty to make the room more fun with the artwork, throw pillows and other decor they brought into the space.
