Preppy Home Decor: What’s Your Style?

With Wimbledon in full swing, tennis fans and celebrities across the globe are donning their preppiest attire and heading to London to watch the tournament. To join in on the festivities, we’re taking a look at the different types of preppy home decor. Read on!

Palm Beach Preppy

In various beach locales across the country – Palm Beach, Southampton, Newport – sun worshipers fill their homes with saturated, bold shades of hot pink and emerald green. Brands like Lilly Pulitzer reign supreme alongside palm prints, pom poms and contrasting trim. In this space, designer Anne Hepfer fully embraced the tropical theme, featuring fanned-out leaves in the drapery, upholstered headboard and bed skirt.

Traditional Preppy

On the more restrained end of the spectrum, fans of traditional preppy decor often employ neutral stripes, dark plaids and limited color palettes. When it comes to preppy brands, Ralph Lauren is king. In this dining area, designer Windsor Smith brightened up the space with white Chinese Chippendale chairs and an unexpected pop of yellow.

Eclectic Preppy

For the preppy decorator who wants to punch things up, take a cue from designer Sam Allen, who shared the room above in honor of Wimbledon.

Sam’s tip: “I love the combination of navy and white because it is so versatile. It goes with just about everything! In addition, stripes add depth and interest to a room. A great and simple way to achieve this is to use the pattern on a headboard and match it to the wall, adding a ton of character to the space.”

To ensure a perfect match, select a striped fabric and ask DecoratorsBest to have it backed for you.

Garden Preppy

The garden preppy look shares elements with the Palm Beach preppy style, but it’s a softer version, incorporating floral and chintz patterns, less saturated shades, and generally, a more subdued aesthetic. It’s often seen as a feminine decor style, but as we all know, real men wear pink – and they decorate with it, too!

How to Incorporate Geometrics into Every Room of Your Home

Geometric prints are forecasted to be one of the top trends of 2014. Check out our break down of how to use the angular patterns in each room of your home:

Foyer & Stairway

You can do things in a small space that you can’t do in a big one so an entryway, foyer or stairway is a great place to try a bold geometric wallpaper in either a strong print or color. Black & white geometrics are more versatile as you can create two different styles depending on whether you pair the look with dark or light furniture. If you’re using a pattern with a huge scale, keep wall hangings and furniture to a minimum, allowing the wall to be the focal point.

Living Room

If you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up in your living room, go for a geometric rug. It will bring your home up to the latest trend without breaking the bank. A dark rug will ground the look, so choose something in a deep hue that complements the colors you’re already using in the room (Hint: navy, black & brown are great neutral go-to’s that work with almost anything). We like a big pattern with a bit of white in it.

Bedroom

There are a couple of ways that you could incorporate geometrics into your bedroom. Throw pillows quickly liven up the bed while a headboard upholstered in an intricate geometric trellis makes a strong statement. We recommend using shades of blue—anywhere from navy to pastel—for its calming properties.

Bathroom

Because bathrooms tend to lean toward the simple side in terms of decor, a little can go a long way in this space. Use a subtle grey & white geometric print for a window shade or valance to bring in a little style. Stick with simple white in the rest of the area for a fresh, clean look.

Kitchen

Add a little pep to your kitchen by covering the seats of bar stools (or cushions of eat-in chairs) with an angular pattern in bright red, a color that stimulates the appetite. Consider slip covering or using an outdoor fabric so that spills, which happen more often in the kitchen, are easier to clean.

Dining Room

Softer, more organic ethnic shapes are also a hot trend for 2014. Combine this with the geometric look by covering your dining chairs in an abstract pattern that references geo shapes for a different, eclectic take on the traditionally symmetrical pattern.

Spring Decorating: 4 Refreshing Color Schemes

Spring is just a few weeks away, so now’s the time to start thinking about freshening up your home for the eagerly awaited season. Check out these four cheerful color schemes that will revitalize your space:

Color Scheme #1 – Feature Color: Radiant Orchid; Accents: Plum, Celery Green, Cream

The color of 2014 is Radiant Orchid, and if there was ever a time to add it to your home, it would be Spring. Build around the bright hue with a deep plum, which anchors the space, and accent with cream & a muted celery green.

Color Scheme #2 – Feature Color: Turquoise; Accents: Dazzling Blue, Yellow, Lime Green

Bright, saturated colors play well with turquoise, creating the feeling of blue skies, budding flowers and warm sunshine. Start with neutral furniture and build the color around that. Paint or cover your walls in a turquoise hue (we like the added texture of grasscloth wallpaper) and bring in fun floral, ethnic & geometric patterns that contain lime green, yellow and dazzling blue. Pillows are an easy way to do this!

Color Scheme #3 – Feature Color: Mint Green; Accents: Hot Pink, Fern Green, Ecru

Pastels like mint are always popular as the weather warms up, but this year do it differently by pairing it with a hot pink and fern green. Add these shades to your home with floral fabric & wallpaper panels, and also with natural elements like peonies. This color scheme looks especially fresh against a canvas of white walls.

Color Scheme #4 – Feature & Accent Colors: Grey, in many shades

Grey is one of the most-used hues in decor, and we can see why—it’s versatile and creates a sense of calm. Take it up a notch this season by building a whole room around different shades of grey (you could even say 50 Shades of Grey…). Use a variety of charcoal with lavender undertones, slate and dove grey in both solids and patterns. Multiple textures will add dimension to the space—linen is a perfect addition to make the look more appropriate for the season.

Themed

Valentine’s day-themed decorations are a playful way to celebrate the holiday. This room uses shades of pink that would work any time of the year, but for the holiday, temporarily dress up lampshades! Simply wrap the shade in a sweet wallpaper (we prefer the hot pink lips below), pull it tightly around the lampshade and secure ends together with glue (or tape). Voila! A festive look that can be removed after V Day.
