Get the Look – Preppy Modern

“Modern” as a style has so many different interpretations – from “cold” modern to “rustic” modern to “futuristic” modern . . . you get the idea.

I\’ve been a fan of rustic modern for awhile now (our 10th flip is my interpretation of that style), but I\’ve recently become smitten with what I\’ve dubbed “preppy modern.”

Textile-maven Caitlin Wilson and the Studio McGee design firm are the current masters of this style – think streamlined cabinets, geometric tile in classic colors, brass and matte black fixtures, fabulous patterns in buffalo check and herringbone, unadorned hardware, warm leather – and, of course, the traditional prepster tones of grays, blues and whites.

Caitlin\’s Instagram is an absolute treasure-trove of inspiration, featuring both her beautiful textile creations and killer design style:

Studio McGee\’s Instagram feed shows their slightly more masculine take on preppy modern that is just as captivating:

We\’ve got a huge project in the works and I\’m eager to try this preppy modern style for all the finishes. What do you think about this look?

And while you\’re checking out Caitlin Wilson and Studio McGee on Instagram, be sure to hop on over to my new feed – you can find me here (itsgreattobehome), where things are still a work in progress. My former feed is now a private account (I started feeling like a mama bear about the photos of my kiddos!), and this new feed will be all things renovation/design/home building. I\’ll be updating it soon, I promise!
