On this last day of June, we at Mirror80 are taking a look back at our favorite moments from the past month. For us, June was all about celebrating art, design, and our favorite new television show, Halt and Catch Fire. In July, expect TWO Retro Foodie posts featuring ’80s-style summer party concepts, a couple of DIY projects that revel in modern geometry, and more of your favorite features on retro-meets-modern art, fashion and design. Read on for some unforgettable June highlights:

This month we launched a new series called ’80s Art Picks, featuring our favorite 1980s art finds from sources such as eBay and Etsy. We begin with a look at abstract pastel art, then turned our attention to sophisticated style, including ’80s Deco pieces.
Looking for a summer trip destination? There’s still time to head to Memphis, Tennessee, where you can view the exhibition Memphis-Milano: 1980s Italian Design, showing at Dixon Gallery and Gardens.
For an easy, affordable DIY project that channels the current marble craze and ikat patterns of the ’80s, check out our marble art tutorial. The supply of choice: nail polish!
We’re crazy about the one-of a kind stones of Curtis Bort, whose Etsy shop offers a range of geometric forms.
Have you seen AMC’s new series, Halt and Catch Fire? Set in the early 1980s, this well-written show is dedicated to re-making the ’80s in style. Discover our top reasons to watch and see if they match what you love about this series!
At the beginning of this month, we interviewed artist, performer and Deco design enthusiast Heather Hermann. Then she took us on a tour of her retro-fabulous Vegas apartment. SO much inspiration here, folks!
As part of our ongoing series on creativity, we explored the value in learning to recharge. Read more about the importance of down time when you live a creative life, then get involved in the discussion.
