Guest Picks: The Preppy Home
With nautical chic or Palm Beach punchy, the preps have it covered in style
The preppy aesthetic has to be one of my favorites — bright, juicy colors and fun, irreverent patterns combine to create a classic and uniquely American style. I absolutely love wearing preppy pieces in my wardrobe during the summer months, and I tend to choose a few preppy pieces for my home this time of year too. — Daniela from Aesthetic Oiseau
