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.
