Bed Check: Preppy Bedding

Ditch the pink and kelly green–we’re reimagining preppy for the twenty-first century.


This peppy bed is equal parts fun and function.  Both pretty and practical, with eye-goggling colors and durable fabrics that stand up to years of loving use, it’s guaranteed to make your inner prepster smile.

Create a gleeful mash-up of iconic preppy bedding staples like bright solids and nautical stripes with bold, Japanese-inspired blossoms. Sticking to a single color palette keeps the look from going over the top. For a contrast crisper than a popped collar, tuck some kitten-soft cotton sheets underneath. Tie the look together with a tough-as-nails indoor/outdoor rug in a lively stripe that can stand up to tracked-in beach sand or sweaty tennis gear, as well as the pitter-patter of little feet—of both the two-legged and four-legged varieties.

We don’t believe in humdrum bedrooms, not when you can go user-friendly, effortless chic in a couple of simple steps. After all, as the sage philosopher Aristotle once said, “The most comfortable, inviting, and beautiful bed is a Happy Preppy bed.” (Well, not really, but you get the point.)
