You know what they say, “If you wait long enough everything comes back in style.” I guess we’ve waited long enough because 70’s décor is back in a big way in 2019. The 70’s had two characteristic designs going on – the hobo hippie vibe and the glitzy disco feel, meaning just about everyone can incorporate a 70’s feel into their 21st century home without going back to mustard and avocado colored appliances and orange shag carpet.
Here are a few ideas to think about:
- Earth Tones
The earth tones: tans, browns, mustard, ochre were the decorating colors of choice in the 70’s. These colors were often paired with contemporary furniture in bright, bold hues. You would see a bright contemporary style table placed on a natural circular sisal rug or bright outdoor furniture on a natural stone patio. Bamboo and rattan furniture were also popular styles. Consider incorporating a natural fiber area rug made from sisal, jute or sea grass. These rugs are not only beautiful but sustainable.
- Indoor Plants
Remember those indoor plants that sat in the corner in a really small woven pot, and the plant wasn’t even real? You may not want to have a fake plant, but a live plant gives the 70’s vibe while providing something that is not only beautiful but also cleans the air. A natural stone or woven pot, or a macramé’ container will give a nod to the 70’s.
70’s wallpaper gave wallpaper a bad rap partly because it was so dang hard to apply and remove. Wallpaper is back in a big way and modern technology created amazing designs and has made it much easier to deal with.
Whether you are revisiting the style or are a newcomer, now is definitely time to add a little 70’s flair into your home décor.
