Geo style, pastels, marble…all of these current trends have close ties to the 1980s. And this week, a variety of sites and blogs featured them in spades. First up: The New York Times. On Wednesday, I came across this article, titled “Furnishings With Geometric Patterns.” The article’s featured designer is Rafael de Cárdenas from Architecture at Large. I’m a long-time admirer! He points us to a variety of items, from the Fort Standard trivets above to the Stella Triangle lamp below, available at Matter.
Next up–pastels! And of course, confetti. Since I’m a big fan of both, it should be no surprise that I love the photos below. They come from one of my favorite blogs, Design Love Fest. In fact, DLF blogger Bri Emery teaches photoshop in her renowned Blogshops, and the events are bursting with creativity and style. The photo backdrop in these next images (taken at a recent Blogshop) makes me want to turn my living room into a photography studio, complete with a bubble machine. Blogshop attendees enjoyed getting their pictures taken in front of the pastel design:
I’ll end today’s post with a DIY project from Oh Happy Day, which proves that washi tape has some serious ’80s design possibilities…
Happy Friday, Everyone!
