Decor Inspiration: Schoolhouse Rock

Educational Etsy finds, clockwise from the left: Vintage Kreko carbon typewriter paper from DoodleBugLane, 1940’s milk caps from GiddyGirlVintage, vintage science kit from Bellalulu, butterflies bookplate from OldTimersClub, and vintage Bunsen burners from Bellalulu.

You school-aged folk may not be looking forward to the start of classes, but I think we can all agree that schoolhouse-inspired style is pretty rad. Inspired by this academic decor trend report by DIYLife, I dug through Etsy’s vintage school supply bins for smart pieces to spruce up my own apartment with. The top five items on my wishlist are above.

Does school-inspired decor get an A+ in your book, or fall short of the grade?

    I love this style! I’m crazy about any sort of Vintage/Retro decor, memorabilia or propaganda. Very cool.
