home: trend [ 70s print ]
With a little reinterpretation of the strength of wildness of the 1970s this trend is a contemporary take on the clashing patterns, natural textiles, pattern mixing of the original look.
Bring together the organic feel of natural homewares including wicker, macrame, wood, jute and brick with the richness of burnt oranges, purples and brown. Use fabrics like velvets in sofas, weaves for walk hangings, hides and fluffy afghans in rugs and cushions and mix with earthy tones and metallics in the lighting, ceramics and sculptures.
It’s with the wall and floor covering that this trend really gains strength. Introduce wood panelling effect walls, real exposed stone walls, textured giant wall hangings of rich colour themes and the key to this trend – lots of indoor planting. Use great house plants with super architectural leaves and layer up with small hanging plants in plant hangers and also wooden and woven planters.
