Trends may come and go, but right now we’re having a full-on 70s love affair. The age of boho and disco has come back in full force, and it’s hitting home—literally. From rattan to wicker, home decor has seen a big shift from minimalist and modern to “eclectic hippie”, and we are loving it. If you’re been looking for an excuse to shop in your parents’ basement, now is the time.
Embracing ’70s home decor trends can be as simple as sprinkling a few accessories. If you’re looking for inspiration, here are a handful of ’70s decor trends that are officially back in style.
70’s TREND REVIVAL #1: Hanging Chairs
What’s better than swinging on your porch? Swinging in your living room.
A hanging chair is a fun way to create a reading nook in a living space or a bedroom. Be sure to install it properly to avoid accidents.
Here you have lot of options from DLaguna.
You can also buy a stand if you don’t want to hang your hanging a chair from the wall. Most egg or wicker chairs look just as chic on a metal stand. Just find a color that blends in with the rest of your room, and you won’t even notice it’s there.
#2: Rattan everywhere
Rattan furniture is made from materials such as cane and willow. And, while it actually dates back to antiquity, it was incredibly popular in the 1970s. Certainly it’s back, and we can’t get enough of it.
70s trends #3: Terrazo
This year terrazzo is everywhere. While it’s traditionally thought of as a material for flooring or countertops, these beautiful coffee tables from m.a.d prove it can be used in nearly any form and still be just as chic. Terrazzo is a composite made of chips of materials like marble, quartz, glass and more. While its heyday was in the ’70s, we love that it’s making its way back into our homes.
#4: Retro Colors
If you’re tired of the all-white living room trend, you’ll be excited to know that bright, bold colors are back in style. This living space from Essential Home is all about personality, and colors such as blue, mustard yellow and dusty rose are making a splash again in home decor.
If you don’t want to commit to a fully retro palette, consider a few mustard yellow velvet throw pillows or a deep green lampshade to mix this trend into your living room.
#5 70s materials: Velvet
There’s just something about velvet that screams luxurious. A popular material in the ’70s, we are starting to see velvet become more and more common in home decor. From arm chairs to throw pillows, velvet is a great way to to add texture to your home.
