Interior design has been changing through the decades, but it seems like that in modern space decoration fusion of different styles and decades is allowed. Some iconic pieces from different decades are now being incorporated into the existing space and add a new vibe to it. The 70s furniture was bright in colors with smooth lines and a futuristic approach, which perfectly compliments the modern interior design. Below are listed best interior features of the 70s that you can incorporate into your home.
1. Open space
In the seventies it was all about freedom, this applied to homes and organization of space as well. Most houses had this s- called open space, meaning that walls were not the ones used to separate different parts of the home, but the whole organization was in making logical wholes which were separated by function, but still a big part of the whole space.
When talking about colors, it is all about nature. So beige is one of the basic colors used in the 70s. Next to it, all shades of brown were used as well. To spice things up, rusty orange and mustard yellow are a good pick, as well as firey reds and bold hot pinks. It all depends on your preference and the space you are in. Leafy greens are always a good choice, alongside cold, pidgeon blues. Do not hesitate to mix and match, and not only the furniture is there to change colors, but the easiest way to give a breath of fresh air to the living space is also to change the color of the walls, so pick a color and a wall and go wild.
In the seventies, it was all about the expression, so geometric shapes and different bold patterns were very popular. By picking a piece of the furniture that is bold, it can spice up the place and give it a whole new vibe. One of the good ways to have a taste of it is to try with patterned pillows and see where it will take you. Oval tables were a thing, so why not replace that coffee table you don’t like with the new one? More furniture ideas can be found on this web site.
4. Natural approach
Today is, more than ever, important to preserve nature, and there is no better way to feel connected to nature than to make it a part of your home. Natural fabrics are a good way to start, as well as the incorporation of natural colors, such as greens, browns, and beiges. Indoor plants will enrich the space and make it more fresh and alive looking. They also bring this feeling of peace and serenity.
5. Hanging chairs
These chairs are so in right now! There is nothing better than crawling into the egg-shaped chair filled with pillows and make it strip your cares away. They can be hung almost everywhere, from the nursery, living room and bedroom to the porch or terrasse. If you would like to skip the hanging part, they can be bought with afoot that will hold this chair in place, or with a specific construction making the egg hanging but still not being attached to the ceiling. No matter which option you choose, this chair will become your favorite leisure place in the house.
6. Shag carpets
Shags and fringes were a signature part of the 70s culture. Not only they were on clothes, bags, and shoes, but they were also all over homes on the carpets, pillows, and covers. Made from natural material and in soft beige colors a carpet with shags can add some fun note into space you are living in. If you are eager to play with colors, rusty or mustard yellow carpet will do the trick, of course, if the space you are adding it too has complementing colors.
It is amazing how much popularity these birds had during the 70s. It only seems like they are making a comeback as we see a lot of different decorating objects in this shape. They can be incorporated in almost any type of modern decor. For the nursery, you can buy an LED lamp in the shape of this bird. If your living room is monochromatic with smooth lines, a statue that is in one color and represents a silhouette of it can be a good addition to the decor of the room.
We have mentioned that natural materials are highly recommended and choosing rattan will most definitely give you the 70s vibe you are hoping for. Those hanging chairs we mentioned above are made from this material, and they can be paired nicely with shelves and coffee tables made from the same material. Many people decide to buy a rattan set for the porch, composed of a coffee table, a few chairs and a sofa all made from rattan and finished with lovely pillows in natural colors.
This ancient way of making artwork is famous all around the world, and pieces were made to be hung on the walls or to hold plant pots. They can add a nice, natural vibe into the home since they are made from natural materials and in most cases in soothing shades of brown and beige. They will be a nice addition to the rattan chairs and furniture pieces.
This material is made from scraps and combines all different materials in order to make vases and pots. It is vastly distributed all around the market and can be found in almost every store and in almost every color. Plant pots made from this material can be used to bring some sparkle and light into the home, and get a nice makeover to the boring plant pots.
Hopefully, now you have an idea, where to start and how to incorporate 70s fashion into your own home. As you can see, the market is already filled with the pieces, yours is just to sit back, relax and pick the ones you would like to include in your apartment.
