Kelly Robson of High Street Market has really been on a roll this month with great vintage finds, so it has been hard for me to resist sharing several of her items. The affordable chinoiserie coffee/tea cup with practical lid would be perfect for the student who wants to emulate Maximilian but isn't allowed to bring quite as much stuff to campus.

For the lucky few who can replace their standard issue dorm room furniture, the tufted leather Emeline chair from Anthropologie would be a great splurge.
Last week in Atlanta, Lulu DK Matouk showed a new collection of appliqued and embroidered decorative pillows (for sofas and chairs). I expect to see these in grown-up living rooms, but the criss cross pillow would still be a terrific touch in the fantasy dorm room. Look for them soon at a boutique near you.
(Lulu DK Matouk's Paradiso pillow is beautiful, too. Here's a link to a past post about Lulu de Kwiatkowski's take on kids and art.)

BTW: I wouldn't mind being back in school if I could take one of these fascinating courses taught by Craig Hanson.
