After reading the title of this post, you might think we’ve taken an office packed with ’80s decor and given it a more modern look. Not entirely so. The point of this interior design DIY was to take an office–in this case, the home of Mirror80–and give it a streamlined nod to the ’80s.
This week, I enjoyed the design challenge of creating a dramatic floral arrangement to be used in a portrait that will be my official blog photo! My love of ’80s design has resulted in a large collection of ceramics–’80s Deco vases (as shown above), spherical pieces, swans in a variety of hues. This spring I decided to document my collection, and to be included in the picture.
A little vanity never hurts… Watch a teen flick from the 1980s, and you just might catch a glimpse of a dressing table–or vanity–in the background, packed with knickknacks and collectibles. Mirror80 made a go of it using finds from Goodwill, Savers and a local antique mall. Total cost: roughly $25.
