Mismatched Floral Bedding

I've just added some mismatched vintage floral sheets to the guest room- I love the riot of color, and pattern, don't you? It couldn't be more cheerful. It's the darkest room in our home, so the splash of springtime brightens it right up.

I've learned that in order to mix and match patterns, you need to stay in the same color families and really vary the scale to keep it looking intentional. I feel like this combination is successful, but I'm on the hunt for more vintage florals to be sure! I found the pillowcases for .50 cents at a thrift store and the fitted sheet is from the charming Etsy shop My Vintage Whimsy. The wild sixties inspired print on the flat sheet is from Target five years ago, and the duvet is ancient Pottery Barn. What's new at your house?

Gorgeous! Love, love, love! I don't have the eye to try to do the mismatched thing. Wish I did! Very impressed.

I love vintage sheets. I have many 12 gallon tubs full of them. Some for crafting and some for the bed. Whenever I see a pattern I like while out thrifting I can't help but buy it! If you like them you should check out the flickr groups "Vintage Sheets" and "making the bed".

I am so in love with your bed! I hope I can find something with hat kind of feeling when we go to the mainland this month.

What a great aesthetic for the bed! The fitted sheet reminds me of something from my grandma's house.
