Hi, I’m Kristen.



The Preppy Minimalist was created as a way to document all my travels, work, and inspiration and share with those around me.  The name comes from my preppy aesthetic paired with my life motto to “travel more and own less”.  I always have a few trips on the calendar and my favorite colors are navy and white.






I own a residential design-build firm in Kirkland, Washington {Aesthete Studio} and love showing off the amazing homes we create.  Each one is unique and watching the process of it coming to life is the best part.






Of course life isn’t complete without my husband and two mini-goldendoodle pups, Wilson and Charlie.  We all share a love of boating, skiing, and hanging out together in the great outdoors.
