This classic, all-American look is easily translated in the bedroom with bold navy blue curtains, pastel green roller shades and pops of bright, preppy color and pattern throughout.
Choose the Perfect Shade
A dark room can help promote better and longer sleep, but doesn't have to sacrifice style. Room-darkening roller shades in bright, pastel hues are a great way to add a pop of chic style and function to your window treatment design.
Add Bold Curtains
Preppy style is all about color and pattern. A metallic curtain rod and navy blue curtains lined in a bold, white Greek key add just the right amount of prep to this window. Designer Tip: Hang curtains at the ceiling to make your room look and feel more spacious.
Pops of Preppy Color
Another staple of classic preppy design? Pops of hot pink, of course! Incorporate this fun hue in small accent elements like finials, throw pillows and side tables.
Tiebacks on a Budget
Don't waste your money on expensive curtain tiebacks. Simple satin lime green ribbon does the trick at a fraction of the cost.
Mix + Match
Tone down a bold hot pink side table with a classic navy blue-striped lamp and pretty white flowers in a soft green vase.
Pile on the Pillows
Plush throw pillows in classic preppy colors and patterns show off a pretty paisley headboard. Designer Tip: Instead of buying a brand new headboard, simply cover an old one in quilt batting and fabric.
Keep It Cozy
This preppy bedroom look is tied together with a navy blue quilt and cozy hot pink throw.
Turn your bedroom into an oasis of calm by pairing soft, pretty window treatments with plush bedding and dreamy accents in muted hues.
Start With Simple, Patterned Shades
Want to sleep like a fairytale princess? Roller shades in a dainty olive leaf pattern add pretty, natural interest to windows and help block light for easy slumber.
Layer With White Curtains
Simple white curtains help darken the room, dampen sound and highlight the floral-patterned roller shades.
Accessorize With Natural Materials
Complete the serene look with a natural wood nightstand, fresh flowers and white accessories. Designer Tip: Follow the melon rule for best sleep. Keep clutter at bay by only decorating with items larger than a melon.
Woven Texture + Function
A woven blanket basket hides unsightly cords and offers a pop of texture.
Fluff It Up
Fluffy white and taupe pillows in a variety of weaves and materials are a sweet, cozy complement to serene window treatments.
Fill That Empty Space Above the Bed
The sleepy theme is continued with dreamcatcher-inspired artwork.
