Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll, and now interiors…ahhh. Do you ever wish you got to live in the 1970s? I know I do. These room are, as Austin likes to say, “Groovy baby, yeahh.”
I want to point out an interesting difference between design preferences in the 1970s versus now; all of these pictures show wall-to-wall carpeting installed everywhere. In a sense, wall-to-wall carpeting was a sign of luxury, and having a large amount of exposed wood flooring was not considered eloquent. Today, however, you see hard wood floors throughout entire homes. Personally, I prefer the look of the 70s…Then again, I was born loving carpet so I might be biased…
1. A soothing design and color scheme complimented by the Les Damiers design from Stark Carpet.
2. Aside from the TV, this photo looks like it is straight out of an Ikea catalog.
3. Nothing says 1970s more than a sunken living room, but the color palette keeps it modern.
4. ’70s ski chalet chic?
5. This looks like an awesome place to host a key party.
6. The mix of pieces from different decades keeps the design timeless.
7. Minimalist design: Two acrylic hanging bubble chairs and a million dollar Warhol silk-screen.
8. OK, the carpet is horrendous, clearly not a Stark, but the swing is awesome.
9. A nice nod to Mid-Century Modern.
10. The monochromatic harvest gold color scheme is so bad it (almost) works.
11. Really amused by the fact that the wall graphic coordinates with the bedspread…
12. The perfect spot to curl up with a good book.
13. Kind of forward contemporary design for the 1970s, it looks like it could be right at home on the set of Miami Vice (which I am all for).
14. Surprisingly the mix of Egyptian blue, burnt orange, and white work really well together.
15. Like number 6, this has a very timeless design.
16. Seriously, this is an awesome bathroom. It looks like a cross between the Playboy Mansion and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
