Across the high street homeware stores, and online, there’s a huge amount of homewares inspired by Native American tribal patterns.

The colours are strong but not too bright and these homewares sit well in a predominantly neutral tone interior. Cream or white walls and floors, lots of natural wood and then texture and pattern from all the gorgeous rugs, throws and wall hangings. It’s a truly ‘traveller’ and earthy trend that creates warm, timeless style and feel to a room, and can be added to with trinkets and paraphernalia from travels.

There was some incredible design and style to come out of the seventies – it wasn’t all bad bell bottoms and glitter, but the design mentality of the midcentury continued, evolved and produced slick but funky interior design, luxury and a lot about comfort and relaxing – think low level seating, sumptuous throws, endless cushions, fabric on walls, even padded walls… dinner partying in the home and cocktail evenings or ‘soirées’ were becoming all the rage so creating the right home environment was key.

Fast forward to present day and a lot across the current high street has taken inspiration from the styles, patterns, furniture silhouettes and luxurious feel.

The colour palette to stick to should include neutral creams and beiges with rust, red, mustard and green tones. For a modern approach keep things quite minimal with not overlaying too many strong patterns as they would have done in the 70s.

Hunt on eBay, in markets and at car boots for pottery, ceramics and homewares of the era to bring in the right details but also high street favourites Habitat and Dunelm have some great modern equivalents.

The rust tone is warm and it’s best layered with lots shades of this one colour – plus splashes of rose as a lightener. This creates a lovely building of the colour with no striking other colours to distract from the colour. It’s not overwhelming at all. It’s also a colour that works with trends including Traveller, Moroccan and Woodland.

If you just want a little rust, use in a clean white or soft grey interior with lots of wood tones and keep minimal so the rust stands out.

For walls we’ve found Red Earth (Farrow + Ball) and Heat (Little Green Paint Co). Create the full impact by also painting skirtings, doors, frames as well as walls in a rust tone.
