Check out Lily Pulitzer’s Palm Beach take on preppy decor
This week, get inspired by preppy decor with us!
Although the preppy aesthetic is timeless, modern prepsters have gravitated towards looks with a little more pizzazz. Check out these 5 must-have preppy patterns popular today:
The geometric aspect of argyle makes it a striking pattern, and now it’s getting an update with bright, unusual color combinations and deconstructed versions.
Cable knit is so warm and cozy—a perfect pattern for the winter months. Keep it classic with a creamy neutral or switch it up with a turquoise or chartreuse. We like it on throw pillows or as a slipcover for a club chair.
A Touch of Leopard
You may think that prepsters are uptight, but they like to walk on the wild side, too—just a little! The key to getting the look just right is to approach it with an editing eye. Just a small touch will do on a single pillow or small piece of furniture like an ottoman.
Stripes with Bright Colors
The nautical stripe is a staple in the wardrobe of those who favor the J. Crew vibe. Today it’s being paired with neon hues and chevron interpretations.
Originally, plaids were considered to be rustic, but the new way to do plaid is more eclectic. Unconventional color combinations like red and purple are becoming the norm. We like juxtaposing the plaid with mod furniture, like in the dining room below.
