Now Trending: Nostalgic Decor

Back to school is right around the corner! If there’s one thing to get ahead on, it’s shopping for your dorm room. The last thing you want to do is make trips to the store the first few weeks to pick up this and that. And, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming moving away from home for the first time (homesickness, ugh). To combat back-to-school blues, try surrounding yourself with a little fun. Retro and ’90s-inspired decor and supplies are all the rage right now. So whether you’re prepping that dorm list or just want to give your desk a #TBT makeover, read on for some inspiration—and a little nostalgia.
