Back to School means Back to Organization
Back to School is about a fresh start. Brand new tools. A time to get organized. We are probably not the only ones who enjoy shopping for crisp, colorful binders and composition books… sharpening stacks of #2’s …preparing children for the new year and organizing their living spaces for the school year. Where to begin?
Here’s one way to organize a girl’s bedroom: build a study and storage space that fits your space and style. Shown above: Young America Dana Writing Desk combined with two Dana Door Bookcases, a Dana Storage Hutch and a Bailey Banker Chair.
A Newberry Bookcase Bed (below) paired with two Dana Low Bookcases creates an attractive, practical space for the (many) things that may otherwise end up on the floor, under the bed or who-knows-where…
Mixed and matched, Dana furniture styles are space-saving, versatile and blend easily with Young America collections and styles you may already have in your home. Perfect for a child’s bedroom in your choice of paint finishes and wood tones.
Young America Dana study and storage ideas to help organize a modern boy’s room too.
Cubbies, bins, drawers and doors provide space to stow and display everything.

How about stacks of colorful organization? Just a little paint & imagination goes a long way. Having ample storage is key, whether in boxes, bins, baskets or jars.

Task lighting is another essential. We found a current source for some colorful desk lamps at apartmenttherapy…
…and another fun idea for creating order in your study space, using a peg board to display artwork or assignments…

Get Ready for School by Going Mobile: Hee, Hoo! Beep, Beep!
Everything is going MOBILE these days - why not a desk too? The Young America Dana Scooter Desk is a free-wheeling bedroom or study space companion. It’ll move wherever your young student may want to go! It’s on smooth inline skate wheels and ready to roll. It even fits over most beds for a sick day, work surface or a comfy breakfast-in-bed. If you’re old enough to remember Pete Townshend (The Who), then you may remember this upbeat song Goin’ Mobile… included below as tribute to a mobile study space.
I’m goin’ home
And when I wanna go home
I’m goin’ mobile
Well, I’m gonna find a home
And we’ll see how it feels
Keep me movin’
I can pull up by the curb
I can make it on the road
I can stop in any street
Inviting people that we meet
Keep me movin’
