Is ’80s Style Coming Back?

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles recently explained some of the trends that took over in the ‘80s are in style again, including bright colors and preppy looks. The good news is, now ‘80s style has an updated, modern spin that looks downright chic in current interior design.

Bright colors have been spotted all over the decorating world, in textiles, furniture and even place settings.

The preppy look has moved back in vogue as well, in the form of Lilly Pulitzer’s new home line along with other preppy patterns. Visit AH&L for a look at fresh design products reminiscent of ‘80s style.

And speaking of reminiscing, this has all brought me back to my days in the ‘80s—permed hair, shoulder pads and all.

My high school friends and I dressed in our preppy best for Homecoming!

This was mid-‘80s, when we were moving out of preppy mode but still sporting big hair. There were even shoulder pads in my shirt!

How do you feel about these ‘80s trends—bright colors and preppy looks—coming back in home design?
