Mixed prints. Layers upon layers. Too many accessories. Am I talking about my outfit? No! It’s our bedroom! We’ve been at our first house for two years. It’s about time I give you a decor update! Peek inside the master bedroom of our 1909 Dutch Colonial.

The master bedroom of our home is shockingly large for the age of the house, and even features a large walk-in closet. Like lots of city homes, someone added an extension where the old porch (and balcony, perhaps) used to be. Because of that, our room has a slightly odd layout with tons of space!
Our home is full of quirky accessories and vintage furniture peppered with DIYs and the occasional statement investment piece. The juxtaposition makes for a more visually interesting completed look, I think. (And I love shopping too much to buy a matching set and skip the hunt.) My husband’s Tick action figure stands on a $3 retro shelving unit that holds my heels. Our king-sized bed is flanked by budget-friendly end tables with Anthropologie knobs. Ya gotta keep things interesting!
To add a personal touch, I made or edited a few of the items featured in our room. I used light brushstrokes and an all-material acrylic paint on our Target floor mirror to bring some color into a neutral corner. For above-the-bed artwork, I spray painted $5 Ikea frames and added inexpensive scrap book paper as artwork. And to hold my brooches and pins, I wrapped cork board in fabric and placed it into an old frame. Hooray crafting!
I love my new DIY additions, but the showstopper of the room is our new bedding set. Soft Surroundings sent over the La Canale Patchwork Quilt (HERE) and matching shams (HERE), and I used them as a jumping off point for the rest of the decor. The texture on this reversible quilt is amazing; from velvet stripes to chenille patterns, I just want to cozy up to it all day long. Plus, the mixed prints work well with our mismatched pillows and patterned sheets!
