They’re Back – The 70’s Style Makes a Resurgence

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:

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Wallpaper

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.
