Q: I am a middle-school teacher, and am always looking for ways to make my classroom more home-like. I peruse through various blogs to find inspiration that can be adapted to classroom... but it is hard to come by... or expensive. Any tips, or easy fixes are welcomed! Specifically, plants that will work while the AC is on all day. Storage that does not look like classroom storage. Display boards. Or storage that is appealing, etc.

Editor: Dear Randi, You may or may not know that Apartment Therapy's founder, Maxwell, taught in a Waldorf school for five years. The thumbnail up top is a picture of a Waldorf classroom, which is full of ideas for a warm, home-like learning environment. See the full pic in Maxwell's post, Ten Things You Need to Know about Apartment Therapy. Readers, please leave other suggestions for Randi in the comments - thanks!
