Colorfully Preppy Rooms

Colorfully Preppy Rooms

Inspired by blueblood style and preparatory panache, these interiors showcase the best of Waspy whimsy.

Think croquet games, sailboat races, argyle sweaters, and Oxford shirts. Coordinated style with a crisp, refined edge — these are rooms that would do any Bunny or Chip proud! (As for me? Well, you'll find me in #9, plumping the pillows, sipping my gin and tonic, and perusing the J Crew catalog…)

1. Like a grosgrain ribbon belt, a wall of grassy green stripes pulls together a collection of white cotton seating.
2. Sun-sational salmon mixed with shades of pink calls to mind long Vineyard days and summers on the Cape.
3. A classic preppy combination. Pink and green take a walk on the glamorous side.
4. Regatta bound. Boat sails and ocean breezes inspire a soothingly cheerful room.
5. Reminiscent of a closet full of button-downs, this dining room is dressed in its feminine, pin-stripy best.
6. Sunshiny stripes provide the perfect shade for Muffy (and Mitzy)!
7. A modern design with preppy, pastel roots.
8. Sherbet colors and refined prints capture the essence of contemporary country club style.
9. Sun-bleached citrus hues set the tone in this (almost) perfect, symmetrical bedroom.
10. Like a party tent, awning stripes define the space and act as a fitting backdrop for a prized family portrait (of Uncle Schnauzer).
