Recently I have begun to notice that I am drawn to things that remind me of school. A fresh bouquet of Ticonderoga No. 2 pencils, the color of aged green chalkboards, and the sheen of a nicely waxed floor. I guess I'm just a nostalgic person. Who can resist the industrial and utilitarian charm of this mid-century style?
