How to furnish a house in the 70’s style. Lots of tips to furnish your home with the design inspired by the fashion of the 70’s.
The style of the 70’s is returning to fashion and not only in cinema, clothing or music but also in interior design. The atmosphere of the past, the revolutionary feeling and the bright colors are slowly returning to the houses and upsetting the too sober and modern style that until now has been the master.
In the 70’s the hippie folk style invaded the living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, transforming them from bon ton and representative environments to kaleidoscopic and colourful universes. This is how the open spaces rich in wooden furniture, natural fabrics and objects with abstract shapes were created.
But now let’s get on with the advice to create an environment inspired by the 70’s.
Colourful Living room:
To create a 70s style in your living room, the key word is “mix colors”! Play, fill and exaggerate with colour and especially with warm colours; create strong contrasts between the sofa, the armchairs, the curtains and the cushions without being afraid of making a mistake. The important thing is to avoid monotony and banality!

In the typical 70’s house, one of the mainstays was represented by wood: a material that emits warmness and adapts to any environment and furniture. It can be used on tables, coffee tables, chairs, walls and floors, in short, almost anywhere, but be very careful not to turn the house into a mountain hut!

A bit of Hippie Style:
Adding a bit of hippie style is always a winning move to create a typical 70’s style environment giving rise, therefore, to an easy and comfy aesthetic directly linked to Indian and psychedelic culture. Totems, fringes, dazzling images and blinding colours…

The White Colour:
Despite the wide use of bright colors, in the 70s white was widely used. White, in fact, at that time became very fashionable because it represented the future; this fashion was born after the American landing on the Moon in 1969 and became the backdrop for many scenes of successful films: the first episode of Star Wars in 1977, the Milky Bar in Mechanical Orange in 1971, the Los Angeles interiors isolated in Zabriskie Point by Michelangelo Antonioni in 1970.

If you want to create a 70’s decoration you can’t avoid to insert the wallpaper! Crazy and bright colours, psychedelic and redundant designs and pure energy. You don’t need to cover all the walls you have available, just choose one to give a touch of pure color to the environment!
