Schoolhouse Chic has been emerging for some time now and I thought itÂ was timeÂ to take a break from the flurry of images in my head andÂ examine the look.
Rising out of thisÂ design comes the love for globes, educational charts & maps, chalkboard everything, glass beakers as vases, card catalog storage, schoolhouse lighting, use of lettersÂ & numbersÂ and the industrial feel of school desks, stools and chairs.

Â One of my favorite dining rooms, the chalkboard is obvious but the chairs also look like simple wooden school chairs and the table could’ve been in my elementary school science lab.
