The ‘70s was a truly iconic decade that we confess never really left us when it comes to music, art and fashion! Yes, the Summer of Love vibe is huge in 2017, and whether you’re a fan of boho prints, activism and David Bowie (who isn’t!) or not, you can’t escape the 1970s-inspired styling that’s taking centre stage…
From retro furniture to colours including dark green and dusky pink, Pinterest has confirmed that images of shag rugs, bohemian printed chairs and vinyl record players have become increasingly popular this year!
For a more low-key take on the trend, adding a touch of the decade’s style and colour can bring a fresh look to your interiors – and your sofa – here are our top picks to embrace the Summer of Love…
These dusky pinks add 70s warmth, and are an evolution of the ‘millennial pink’ movement. We still love pink, but this new take on the shade evokes 70s nostalgia. We love!
Long-pile rugs make for a comfy and statement addition to your living space – especially when paired with retro-styled furniture. Look for tapered wooden legs, and geometric curves to capture 70s cool. For a bohemian colour palette, think mustard and orange. Our Peta sofa combines Scandinavian design with a retro frame. C’est chic.
We all know that green is the official colour of 2017, but go for a darker shade, such as these striking tiles by Fired Earth. Combining this with the tropical and botanicals trends, dark green can be added to kitchens or bathrooms for a 70s show-stopping look.
