Today I’m excited to share a tour of my ’80s-style bedroom. I’ve been talking about this post for quite some time, and I really wanted everything to be perfect before posting an official tour. Then I realized that it was more important to share the space than to wait for it to reach a level of design perfection, or to wait until my budget matched my taste! Does your interior evolve over time? Consider this an ever-evolving space, with this being one phase of the process…

An ’80s Bathroom Tour
This year, my hubby and I moved into our first home. There was a bit of work that needed to be done on the place, so we focused on the not-so-fun improvements first. Since we’re on a budget, we’ve needed to do a little at a time. I’ll be sharing pics of our place as we put the finishing touches on each room. If you’ve been reading Mirror80 this fall, you know that I’ve found some bargain items at antique malls, thrift stores and an antique festival. Time to put those finds to good use! We installed mirrors in our bathrooms last week (finally), so I thought I’d start by sharing these spaces with you…
A Tour of My Living Room
Today I’m sharing a tour of my living room! Over the last couple of years, I’ve posted tours of my home office, bedroom, kitchen and dining room. In fact, it’s almost time to share updates of some of these spaces, as I tend to change the look of my home a LOT. For now I’ll focus on the living room, which is a mix of retro and modern styles…
An ’80s-Style Dining Room Makeover
Long time no talk!! I wanted to share a dining room makeover update with you–trust me when I say that this space needed some brightening up.
A Tour of My 1980s Kitchen
Hi Everyone! Today I’m sharing a tour of my 1980s kitchen (the house was built in ’81). Truth: the space has been remodeled since the 1980s, but there are still plenty of ’80s elements, like the garden window above the sink and the pairing of cream and black! When we moved in two years ago, this room became my very favorite in the house.
A Memphis-Meets-Deco Home Tour
Today’s home tour is a celebration of creativity and resourcefulness! Combining elements of Memphis-Milano style with ’80s Deco flair and eclectic touches, Meg Gustafson and Neal Miller have filled their Chicago abode with unique collectibles, innovative DIY projects and loads of personality.
My Retro Eclectic Dining Room
Hope everyone’s having a good weekend! I decided to tackle a few projects in my dining room and wanted to share the results. This room has appeared in many of Mirror80’s Retro Foodie posts, and to be honest, it’s always been a work in progress. As you can tell by the photo above, it’s not a strictly ’80s space, although it does feature many ’80s elements. I like to call it “retro eclectic”…
A Retro-Modern Home Office Tour
Today I’m sharing a tour of my home office, which has been in transition pretty much ever since we moved into our place almost two years ago! While the photos in the post make the room’s accent wall look yellow, it’s actually a bit more lime green than it appears in the pics. Originally intended to be a nursery when the time came, the space was quickly reappointed as the home office when we ended up having to get new flooring in the room that held our desks. So here we are with our lime green wall, bright orange shelves and grey carpet. And here’s how we attempted to make it all work…
At Home with Heather Hermann: An ’80s Deco Tour
Did you catch our last ’80s Connection interview featuring performer, visual artist, costume designer and art dealer Heather Hermann, aka The Duchess of Deco?! As part of the interview process, Heather sent over a slew of pics documenting the design genius of her Deco-fabulous apartment. You know that feeling you get when you go over to a friend’s house and realize you have the same lamp, throw pillows and penchant for decorating with candles? In this case, we have the same globular vases, ceramic swan collection and penchant for decorating with minerals and quirky terrariums. I instantly knew a home tour was in order! Check out all the details…
’80s Design Projects and an Update
Well, it’s been a minute since my last post! With that said, having an hour to write a blog post feels like a complete luxury, and one that I haven’t enjoyed in quite some time. I wanted to update you on some new developments and say that Mirror80 will always be the place I return to when I’m feeling my most creative.
