Retro Chic

I tend to favor deep tone neutrals and smoky shades of color.  However, I'm kind of crushing over this turquoise and pink combination.  Ever since I came across this photo of Ashley Stark's bedroom again from Elle Decor's November issue, I am seeing turquoise and hot pink everywhere from the Versace Spring 2012 ad campaign to the Kate Spade book below.  Although, truthfully, it's sort of an 80's flashback reminding me of Demi Moore's "designer" apartment in St. Elmo's Fire.  It was totally fabulous at the time.  Shocking, I know.  However, if I recall, I was less interested in Demi's apartment and more interested in her co-star Rob Lowe.  My sister and I had Rob Lowe posters probably from Tiger Beat magazine hanging on our pink daisy "vintage" bedroom wallpaper.

So happy you stopped by MS Design Maven! Thank you.

I love your blog too! The pinks are delicious, as is Rob Lowe, still! Love all the pink memos from Kelly Wearstler. Take a look at my series of pink posts in September. I think you will enjoy!

Look forward to lots more sharing!
