perfectly preppy.

here we go now...from a daring vegas look to a more conservative yet never boring look, preppy. preppy doesn't have to be stuffy or uptight, it can be very fresh, very sassy and always keeping with a classic well rounded look.

when i envision design, and also aiming toward a preppier look, i consider color palette, line, placement and style. (via)

the color palette is somewhat simple, somewhat primary, somewhat classic but with a modern twist. (via)

stripes, stripes and more stripes. (via)

the new york based company modularity offers up dynamic, bold, playful and preppy vinyl flooring. you have to take a look at the fun/graphic designs and preppy color palettes!

i smiled at the fun, yet preppy nature of these fabulous mr. & mrs. pillow cases offered up over at castle. a favorite pillow/linen company of mine!

for a completely preppy/nautical look, you cannot go wrong with a black and white color palette, oh and of course, add in the necessary stripes as with these pillows. this crisp space from azhukova.

fresh clean lines, thin or thick, lean towards preppy. lines offer organization, they offer direction, a freshness, indicative of preppy. imagine any wonderfully preppy fabric covered cushion or pillow to accompany this chair from burke decor? gorgeous.

always preppy~evocative are very bold stripes in primary colors. paired with vintage or classic wallpapers & art, and furniture designed with a slightly contemporary twist, boom, preppy. via mixr.

how perfectly preppy is serving your wine in tall glasses with the appropriate "cheers" inscribed, in six different world languages? love this idea in general, nevermind its preppy~ness. via cb2.

this aesthetically industrial newspaper wood cabinet designed by breg hanssen, with its striped facade, its clean, blue lines, preppy indeed. via design boom.

every now and then, whilst perusing the pages of websites, designers and design magazines, i'm drawn to preppy elements of interior design, whether for commercial or residential spaces. i love the tiny bit of flirty they offer, of the refined, dignified and then playful atmosphere preppy interiors convey. never overdone, never underdone. preppy interiors are always somehow perfectly placed, in between. enjoy!
