’80s restaurant design is the perfect arena for learning about design and decor trends from the Decade of Decadence. Why? Because commercial spaces were often far more over the top than residential interiors!
It’s that time again! The Holidays are here, and if you’re shopping for the people you care about (or you’re interested in retro-modern trends), today’s post is for you. The 2017 Mirror80 Gift Guide includes a range of new items that channel the past in a fresh, sleek way.
During the holiday season of 2016, Saturday Night Live featured a song-filled video titled “The Christmas Candle”. The premise: an out-of-season peach candle is “re-gifted ’round the world in just one day.” This video inspired today’s candle swap, complete with retro-style candles that channel the ’80s and ’90s!
I had a few iridescent stickers in my collection as a child of the ’80s, and it seemed like a dream to find a soft rainbow of color peeking through the pearlescent shimmer. What’s not to love about iridescence?! Now it’s back on many a surface, from serving pieces and drinking glasses to shower curtains and purses. Call it an iridescent Halloween–I’m reveling in the pearly glow!
It’s exciting to be living in a time when it’s easy to get an ’80s look with new items. Today we’ve rounded up our favorites and grouped them by color: teal, pink and black. You know, because they’re quintessential ’80s colors and they’re all having a moment!

Ready for more Golden Girls style?! Today’s post is dedicated to the breezy, ’80s Deco look of Rose’s bedroom. Lots of rattan and a sprinkling of pastels give this space beachy style. I’ve played up the light, coastal look to create an updated version of the space. Keep reading for details…
As soon as I learned about IKEA’s new AVSIKTLIG Collection, I scheduled a shopping trip to load up on treasures. If you recognize the zigzag pattern in the photo above, that’s because it’s straight out of the ’80s! In fact, AVSIKTLIG is a collaboration between IKEA and 10-gruppen (also known as Tio-Gruppen).
When I wrote my first Mirror80 post back in 2010, people still cringed at the thought of 1980s design. Now ’80s-inspired decor makes an appearance each season (insert cheers and applause here)!!! It’s fun to discover so many new retro-modern pieces, many of which are affordable…
