Krista Watterworth Design Studio (561-530-3983) joined the Ivy League–chic faction of the preppy movement for this Wellington bedroom. “This room was meticulously designed for a former Connecticut debutante who loves bold style but loathes flamboyance,” Watterworth says. “I was inspired by the French phrase bon chic, bon genre (good style, good attitude), a description of the country’s most elite, whose fashion is sophisticated and colorful but never flashy. With this in mind, I chose the highest quality linens, lush textiles, and silver and crystal accents to button up the look.”
