With her lifelong love for illustration and beautiful paper — plus an MBA from Harvard — Kate Pickett founded NYC-based Pickett’s Press in 2008. Whether it’s a baby announcement, a holiday card, or a wedding invitation, each paper is hand-fed through antique presses to create a look that is one-of-a-kind and full of character.
Create a tone in your room that’s bookish yet whimsical; structured yet laid-back and livable. The primary hues, clean-yet-classic lines, and pops of pattern in these furnishings and accents add up to a polished-preppy look that’s light-years more modern than those Alex P. Keaton-inspired, ‘80s prepster get-ups that are emblazoned in our old photo albums. This is polished-preppy: the way it’s done in 2013.
