A preppy home

While home over Easter, I was flipping through a few magazines my mom had and came across the most adorable room in Better Homes and Gardens. The room was designed by Audrey Soldau of Bravado Design. You may have seen her work here in this charming coastal wedding her company did. The room featured was a charming yellow, white and pink sitting room with a fabulous monogrammed pillow. I searched for it online and could not find it, but I was in luck when I found an article on the rest of her cottage in Budget Decorating
     The story mentions the cute room I saw, but doesn't picture it. Instead, it features the rest of her adorable, cheery cottage that was inspired by Lilly Pulitzer fabric. Audrey took Ikea pieces and flea market treasures and customized them into her own preppy wonderland. She even bought J. Crew sweaters and turned them into pillows. Monograms are found throughout the cottage and it's all so "Preppy Chic" as the story is called. At the end of the story it gives directions on how she made her monogrammed pillows. I will have to give this a whirl as well. Take a tour of her preppy home by clicking inside below. Enjoy and happy Friday!!

Love this post Miss Tutu, great ideas! We have also 'repurposed' J. Crew; in our case we had a linen button-down shirt made into a pillow!

Have a splendid weekend!

I think I need a preppy chic home. I absolutely adore the pastel yellow walls. This is so adorable. Can't you just picture Miss Lilly herself residing in this little hideaway?
