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.
Archie Grand is a Swedish stationery brand that makes notebooks, journals, jumbo sketchbooks, candles, tea towels and cards that are brimming with good advice: diet on foie gras! Stop talking start kissing! Legend has it that Archie moonlighted at London’s art colleges back in the ‘80s, where he met the crème de la crème of British society – the charlatans, jetsetters, scoundrels and luminaries who served as his muses. Today you can buy Archie Grand blank notebooks emblazoned with signature cover declarations, like “Thoughts I Had and Couldn’t Remember”, “Faux Pas I Made and Liked” and “Chefs I Met and Liked” – alongside other delicious stationery offerings.
