Happy April Fool’s Day! Before we officially move into a new month, let’s take a look back at March. From SXSW to a home office tour, there was plenty going on in my world these last few weeks. I also took time to focus on a few retro-modern design trends, from a new take on ’70s style to the intricacies of the still life movement. And as always, I’ve enjoyed reveling in some nostalgia here on Mirror80 via photos and movie stills from the Decade of Decadence. Some highlights, in case you missed anything…

Did you catch the tour of my retro-modern home office?!
Isn’t early ’80s food styling the best?! Lots of dark backgrounds, whipped cream and clever garnishes…
I created some ’80s bank lobby-style planter arrangements, and you can see the photos in this post.
It’s been an amazing month. How could it not be? Spring is finally here! I’ll be cooking up all sorts of retro fabulousness in April, so stay tuned…
