Preppy Interiors Through the Years

Carrying on from yesterday’s post I was inspired to research the “preppy” aesthetic in interiors, both current and of yesteryear.  It’s fabulous to see the trends and items that weave themselves from the past into modern versions of rooms and homes.  Here are some great images of designers that specialize in this look, which has many trademarks such as a mix of antiques and newer items, bold prints, classic details, animal prints, rich color, gilded details and luxurious upholstery.
