[ "2019-04-16" ]
The decade is remembered for many things, from iconic pop culture to fabulous fashion. In interiors, the 70s are memorable for their unmistakable colour palettes, velvet textures and bold use of pattern.
Unlike minimalist Scandi interiors - that are also on-trend for 2019 - the 70s Revival doesn’t embrace a neutral colour scheme. Think back to retro pastels, paired with dark, earthy tones of rust and mustard, all accompanied by natural materials such as wood and rattan.
It’s clear that the flamboyant fashion of the time inspired interior trends from the 70s. Bold pattern, such as geometrics and bright florals, have been transported from retro fashion and brought into soft furnishings.
Pair the Mambo collection with iconic touches, such as statement lampshades, brass accents and wooden sideboards for an overall 70s look.
This stand-out piece, upholstered in our Velour Oxblood fabric, is the perfect 70s rust-toned velvet. The earthy shade contrasts against the vibrant pastel colours, giving a living space a darker, more retro feel.
You can’t revive the 70s interior trend without incorporating houseplants. Cheese plants, spider plants and ferns have all made a comeback in living spaces and add a much-needed, contrasting tone of green into the retro colour palette. Accompany this greenery with the 70’s home staple, macramé, that is also making a return to interiors.
