Decorate My Dorm Room: Preppy Designs

The preppy movement, while not what it used to be, has evolved into modern society and has regained some of its momentum. Even if you don’t live in a mansion, carry a small dog in your purse, or have a butler named Alfred, you can give that expensive, luxurious feeling through a preppy style. Preppy style for boys can be expressed easily through a plaid or argyle bedspread and simple, subtle accent textures. For girls, it is expressed through a solid bedspread in a classically preppy color– as in, a rose pink, navy blue, or bright green– with patterned sheets (the pattern should be subtle and considered “quiet”) and accent pillows that express some type of luxurious design. The most important thing to remember is that when you have a preppy style, you need to add a sense of modern humor in order to prevent the space from looking stuffy or pretentious. So, add that humor through pillows, wall art, and other accessories in your room.

What do you think of the preppy style? Do you have this style and have any recommendations or tips, or are you going to attempt this style? And are there any other styles you want Trend to discuss?
