Yeah Baby! Seventies Inspired Interiors Are Back!

As a child of the seventies, I can assure you there is much to love – and much to covet today about 1970s interiors. The 70s was an optimistic decade, an era dedicated to indulging in stylish comfort at home. Shag rugs, designer swish seating, bold colours, wallpaper and lashings of houseplants. These are just a few of the iconic elements of 70s inspired interiors.

Many of the elements of the disco era’s interior design are still hugely relevant today. Many new homes are still designed around the principles of open plan design, lashings of natural light and raw materials such as exposed brickwork, leather, rattan, cane and richly tactile textiles that are so evocative of 70s style interiors.

Classic 70s interiors featured earthy and casual, yet stylish furniture. Today, the love affair with these elements is still popular and are now featured in the thoroughly modern style of boho – which is ideally suited to Australia’s warm, casual lifestyle.

Some of the less attractive elements of 70s interiors, including the overuse of the colours brown and orange can - and should be relegated to history. You also don’t need to go the full flokati, though richly textured soft furnishings and rugs are definitely an aspect of a modern take on 70s style interiors that work well now.

They really knew how to relax in the 70s. Try out design features made for chilling - like sunken rooms, split levels and sumptuous, low sofas and stylish occasional chairs. 

Furniture from this era is often lush, curved and all about comfort. The piece de resistance to a 70s style living room is the home bar. This trend is easily replicated today, with stunning home bars and trolleys widely available.

A bedroom featuring pops of textured soft furnishings and house plants totally captures the 70’s vibe but for a reimagined, modern take on this style. Keep it casual, layer the textiles and add a totally on-trend rattan bedhead. For the full 70’s style bedroom, add a groovy rug, prints and a stylish wicker chair to complete the classic bohemian ambiance.
