A Blast to the Past with Fabulous 70s Interior

Part 1

The 1970s was a very distinct era of style and designs. From the chunky cars to the frilly yet fitting clothes, everything about that era was eccentric. But even though it had its idiosyncrasies, one thing seems to make a comeback every few decades, and that is the interior design.

The interior design of the 70s, much like its songs and clothing, was funky, playful, and oh so cheesy. Yet the interior design of the disco era managed to sneak into the 90s and is now making its way to 2020. And while you can’t find a lot of the furniture and designs of the 70s today, here are a few tips to help you incorporate that design into your interiors today.

Choose the Right Color

The first thing that you will have to choose is the right color. When thinking of implementing a 70s interior in your home, you will first have to decide the color. The bohemian hippie culture consisted of very bright and flashy colors like summer haze, peace, and love, as well as a new wave.

They also used to combine colors together, which would give them a very distinct look. Bright green and blue as well as yellow and white are just two examples of popular color mixing.

Almost cartoonishly decadent, these colors very much supported the ideology of the hippie movement at the time. These bright colors also show a deep admiration of the Asian culture that soon began to coalesce with American households.

Picking the Right Materials

Now materials give more than just a mood of the place where you are sitting; they greatly contribute to the ambiance of your room. Materials like marble, ceramic, and wood are quite obvious options for materials. Thanks to their bright colors and their likeliness to patterns, they are a prime choice in terms of material.

In terms of wood, Oakwood is possibly the best option. Its bright color and durable nature give you the perfect balance between style and functionality. While you would opt for a wooden floor, that may give your home a more post-modern appeal. Colored marble or ceramic tiles on the floor could give your room a vivacious feel. Llama or shaggy carpets are so quintessentially bohemian; they would make a great addition to any 70s décor.


After choosing the colors and materials, the patterns you choose to add after that will truly define your interior. Patterns were a cornerstone of the disco era. Checks, stripes, patches, and floral are just a few of the examples of exceptional patterns to use. Geometric shapes were also a very common theme, with bright colors like aluminum blue, graphic, or peace and love, all in front of an urban prosperity or summer haze background.

Following these directions will allow you to get that nostalgic 70s look. The bright colors, lucid patterns, and bold materials, all amalgamate to create an exemplary disco era interior.
