Sixties Style Inspiration: Beyonce

I bet you read the title of this post and were a little bit confused, because typically Beyonce doesn't come to mind when you are thinking of mid century style sofas and turquoise rotary phones. Well friends, we are about to change your opinion about that! 

Today we are going to share with you some stills taken from Beyonce's music video, Why Don't You Love Me, because it is seriously one of the greatest music videos that we've ever seen! The styling is absolutely impeccable and the attention to detail is unbelievable. The video is a play on a day in the life of a retro housewife, so you watch as she bakes cookies, does laundry, tidies her home, and waters the plants all while looking incredibly retro glam. The whole video is shot on an old style camera so it is very grainy and you feel like you are watching someone's old home movies. Such an interesting approach to filming a modern music video! Here are a few of our favorite scenes from the video to give you a little mid-century modern inspiration on your Sunday! Enjoy!

The exterior of this mid century home is so stunning! It's even complete with little flamingos! 
We love how her turquoise nails match her phone perfectly. 
A great example of attention to detail: check out all of those vintage kitchen appliances in the background! So cute.
We can't get enough of those amazing sunglasses!
