Preppy Bedding on AT: Chicago

The preppy look is still going strong and even if you didn't own a copy of The Official Preppy Handbook back in the 80s, never fear -- you can still "prep" up your child's room.

We loved this post on AT: Chicago that tells you how you can preppify any bedroom:

  • Use an accent pillow (like the argyle one shown) to determine the colors you'll choose for your bedding.

  • Mix preppy patterns in the same color family: stripes, checks, plaids, etc.

  • Mix textures: cotton sheets, ribbed wool blankets.

  • Use both vertical and horizontal stripes in varying widths.

  • Layer the bed with sheets, duvet, and blankets.

Any preppy accessories you can recommend?
