r August 31, 2012 | B Pinterest Faves

There’s a wonderful feeling of newness and excitement that comes with the start of school.

I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” Whether or not you or a little one are starting school this year, let’s get back that first day of school feeling with these classroom-inspired finds. 1.

I found two really cool roundups for today that will have you itching to redesign your living room this weekend. 1. This roundup from The Lennox is great because it not only tells you how to decorate a bookcase, but it features beautiful photos of bookshelves styled by leading designers. (Including Emily Henderson who we featured last week!) This bookcase design roundup from yummymummyclub is helpful too. Tip: Stacking books horizontally leaves room for pretty items to peek out behind….
