How is it June already? This has been the busiest spring I’ve experienced in years, so I’m ready for a little bit of down time this summer. Before we revel in long weekends and happy hours on the patio, let’s look back at some favorite posts from May. I promise to leave out all of the intense flooding and 30 straight days of rain we experienced here in Austin. How about we focus on ’80s interiors, still life photography, and a trip to my favorite dead mall? Read on for details, as well as links to the original posts…
TOP ROW (L TO R):
’80s commercial offices had some pretty amazing features, from potted plants and retro-fabulous electronics to the occasional use of purple!
One of today’s most popular still life photography trends: color blocking.
MIDDLE ROW (L TO R):
To celebrate spring and the legacy of John Hughes, I planned a Pretty in Pink party that combined ’80s Deco style with more modern elements, such as Boho chic flair.
This 1980s ad for pastel Sharp electronics will blow your mind!
BOTTOM ROW (L TO R):
One of my beloved childhood malls closed its doors last month, but it had been in dead mall mode for awhile. I visited one last time and snapped some photos of this ’70s- and ’80s-infused space.
The t-shirt above (from Stereo Tennis) is one of many finds featured in Mirror80’s latest edition of Retro-Modern Roundup.
Hope you enjoy checking out these May posts! Have a lovely weekend…
