Take a page out of the modern preppy handbook with these finds sure to tickle your fancy

By Liza Grant Smith

 

PEP SQUAD

Let a pop-pom pillow ($270) from Oomph be your style cheerleader. A playful pink detail frames the cotton and line fabric, making it just light and vibrant enough to top your sofa’s pillow pyramid. Lindroth Designs, Palm Beach

GOLDEN RULE

Looking to add an Olympic-sized punch to your prep décor? Go for the gold with Hygge & West’s Petal Pusher wallpaper ($140 per roll), with a shimmering gold floral pattern screen-printed by hand. DKOR, North Miami

 

SWEET DREAMS

Krista Watterworth Design Studio joined the Ivy-League chic faction of the preppy movement for this Wellington bedroom. “This room was meticulously designed for a former Connecticut debutant who loves bold style but loathes flamboyance,” Watterworth says. “I was inspired by the French phrase bon chic, bon genre (good style, good attitude), a description of the country’s most elite, whose fashion is sophisticated and colorful but never flashy. With this in mind, I chose the highest quality linens, lush textiles, and silver and crystal accents to button up the look.” Palm Beach Gardens (561-530-3983, kristawatterworth.com)

“I think preppy stands for optimism, confidence, energy and authenticity.” – Tommy Hilfiger

FIXTURE UPPER

Harness whimsy in your interior design with Stray Dog Designs’ Girly hanging lantern ($950) in a delicious pumpkin hue with white trimmed scallop edges, Matilda’s, Stuart

 

FASHION PLATE

Monograms are key to the preppy lifestyle, and these Boatman Geller Kate Tangerine and Raspberry melamine plates ($30 each) offer 13 font styles that stand out against the Moroccan trellis pattern. Snappy Turtle, Delray Beach

 

PRETTY IN PINK

When in comes to pink tones, forgo blush for hot pink. This French side chair ($299) from The Painted Ox is a visual stunner with a bright lacquered frame and duet of ikat and zigzag fabrics. West Palm Beach
