Back to School: Home Decor

It’s back to school season already, can you believe it? Where did summer go? With my full time job, we work around the start of the school season. If you don’t know what I do day-to-day – I work in student housing, my company provides apartment complex’s with furniture for college students all around the United States. It’s a busy time of year for us during back to school season but it’s got me thinking about when I was gearing up for classes and moving into my new apartment each year. And naturally, I’m also thinking about all the fun decor I got to buy each year for my place. Today I’ve gathered all the home decor essentials for back to school season.
