Schoolhouse décor evokes a wonderful sense of nostalgia, and there is no better time to bring a little “class” to your home than the month of September. Labor Day has come and gone, and kids everywhere are heading back to school. Why not incorporate a bit of your own childhood into your interior, from kitchen design ideas, to accessories that are way too cool for school! We’ll teach you how.
School Supply List
Here is a list of accessories you will need to bring a bit of schoolhouse style to your home.
• Schoolhouse Clock: You can search antique stores for a vintage schoolhouse clock, and you may just be lucky enough to find one in working order. But if not, there are plenty of reproduction clocks on the market today that would look great in the kitchen.
• Wooden Card Catalog: These catchalls were once found in every school library, but now they can be a beautiful statement piece in the home. Use the drawers to store and organize jewelry, tools, electronics, sewing and craft supplies, or anything you else you can imagine. Who needs a junk drawer in the kitchen when you can have a whole chest of little drawers at your disposal?
• Lockers: A tall set of lockers makes a fun storage cabinet in a mudroom, foyer or living room. Keep hats, shoes, and sports gear neatly tucked inside the cubbies. Or remove the upper doors to reveal open shelving inside — the perfect place to keeps books on display!
• Globes and Maps: Start a collection of school globes of various sizes and time periods throughout history, and group them together in a bookcase or on a large shelf. Framed, vintage maps are a unique and interesting way to decorate the walls.
