Time and time again I’ve heard of homeowners and renters working tirelessly to rid their space of its dated look and bring it into the 21st century. Oftentimes items from the 1980s, in particular, are the first to get the boot when it comes time to redecorate. I’m not sure if it’s the pastels or the floral draperies that get everyone so worked up, but many believe this specific decade offered little in terms of worthwhile interior design.
For and her husband Anthony, however, the 1980s embody something too unique to forget. They say the decade’s penchant for experimentation with color and mi patterns was revolutionary and is still unmatched. “The 80s [were] all about putting yourself out there in every way,” they tell us.
When decorating their 1983-era home in Melbourne, Australia, they strove to infuse it with this boldness. To do so Natasha started with colorful and eye-catching abstract artwork. She then sampled the brightest hues from each piece and began peppering them throughout each room. The result is a kaleidoscopic look that acts as a time machine transporting us back to a period when there weren’t so many rules and louder was better. Scroll down to check it out. Enjoy! —
