The love for 70's styling is just as popular as ever leaning towards the bohemian spectrum with its undecorated feel.
However, the 2022 version sees Chocolate Brown as the starring role, but unlike the usual 70's pairing of bright orange, we are seeing a subtle shift for it to play as a deep neutral alongside Terracotta, Congnac and Burnt Umber.
Colour is important to 70's styling, but the new palette stays very close to hues you’d find in nature as we all seek to strengthen our connection with the outdoors. Our inspiration from natural surfaces like wood, stoneware, sparkling crystals, mushroom silhouettes and marble add depth with their imperfect organic qualities, providing a calming and restorative energy.
Vintage finds are vital to this look as they have the power to tell stories through their journeys which is so important to Interiors. Not only is designing with a sustainable approach important, by repurposing the old, the damaged, the forgotton into something new, it brings a rich sense of history and spirit into a space.
The 2022 take on 70's furniture leans more towards multifunctional living than style as Outdoor furniture becomes more important. The dual purpose of living room furniture such as sofas, chairs and lighting are a must as we continue to spend more time entertaining outdoors, and our patios become a true extension of our interior décor.
Think darker, muted softer tones mixed with Vintage finds, foliage and the odd pop of bright colours like Citrus Green, Sunshine Yellow and Cobolt Blue accessories, and you've pretty much nailed it!
