Summer is almost over, which means school is around the corner for some. Feeling clueless? Avoid the “Back-2-School” signs at Bed Bath and Beyond and start thinking outside the box. You’re guaranteed to win the respect of your college floor mates with your grown-up style.

 

 

This slim n’ handy tray table from MUJI is useful for so many dorm-like activities.

Steel Pipe Side Table, $88

 

The Bygone Blackboard is made of reclaimed oak from an old steel mill and repurposed leather from WWII soldiers’ spats. Fancy.

Bygone Blackboard, $28

Rooming in close quarters calls for clever storage. Ditch those dull plastic bins for vintage suitcases, like this one found on Etsy.

Vintage Black Suitcase, $30

 

Store toiletries and school supplies in this sweet 70s Samsonite train case, from dirtiebirdiesvintage on Etsy.

Vintage brown Samsonite carry on train case, $22

 

Simple, cheap, and designed to fit pesky twin xl mattresses, these Target sheets get the job done (and come in a nice variety of colors).

Room Essentials® Twin XL Dorm Sheet Set , $17.99

 

Instead of hideous bed-in-a-bag sets, layer with cozy throws in interesting patterns. This jumbo Ikat throw from Urban Outfitters is a sure fit.

Ikat Woven Tapestry, $69

 

A book light is essential for late night cramming sessions. I’m partial to this modern LED model from MoMA.

Starlite Rechargeable LED Light, $25
