Inspiration: Sterling Ruby's Paint Splatters At Raf Simons

Say what you will about one of our favorite design moments of the 80s, the paint splatter (second only to "shapes" in it's neon brilliance); we're in love with artist Sterling Ruby's reimagining of designer Raf Simons Tokyo boutique...

To us, this doesn't read as nostalgia or irony so much as a great use of random pattern. We can even see this translating beautifully to living space; the blue-on-white is reminiscent of a certain decorator's penchant for busy but classic prints.
