Dorm Style: Vintage Americana for Under $250

Pin it button big

It's that time of year again, when hopeful young students start back to school, and hopeful young freshmen start planning how to decorate their dorm room on a budget. Apartment Therapy is here to help, with our annual roundups of dorm style inspiration. First up: a patriotic room with a vintage feel. 

Lots of these examples are from Etsy, but you can save even more (and enjoy the thrill of the hunt) by searching for similar items in local vintage and thrift stores. Happy shopping!
