Dorm Decor for the Design Nerd

FeaturedImage_DesignNerdDecor.jpg

August is coming to a close (crazy?!?) and that means back-to-school time. Summer is coming to a close and schedules will get busy. It is also an exciting time for many as they head off to college. So to celebrate the start of school, I wanted to share a list of some fun and design related dorm decor and office items to celebrate your design nerdiness (I hope it isn’t just me!). These are not strictly dorm things though so even if you live in an apartment or just want to change-up your bedroom decor, hope you enjoy what I found.

Looking for the different dorm decor items for this post took me down a wonderful rabbit hole through Amazon, Etsy, Paper Source, and Society6. So many pretty things! I basically had to force myself to stop looking, so I may do a part two at some point in the future.

To go along with redecorating and back-to-school, I will also be having a sale in my Etsy shop. Use the code BACK2SCHOOL20 to get 20% your order from now until Sept 2nd. Update 2017: Back 2 School Sale code is CLASSOF18 to get 18% off your order
