    That 70’s Home: 5 Trends Making A Comeback Today

    Disco may be dead, but the
    spirit of the 1970s is not. In
    homes all across the country,
    people are adding their own splash of
    ‘70s style in updated, modern ways.
    Here are five current top decorating
    trends that have an unmistakable ‘70s
    flair.

    MORE MACRAMÉ, PLEASE

    From dip dyed wall hangings to
    simple plant hangers, macramé is
    coming back in a big way. Whether
    you purchase these items already
    made or you enroll in a class to
    make them yourself, macramé offers
    an easy way to add texture and an
    artistic touch to your home.

    GROOVY COLORS
    The blazing orange walls of
    the ‘70s may not be back anytime
    soon, but homeowners are again
    using more dynamic colors to define
    the insides of their home. In fact,
    Sherwin-Williams has named a
    bold, jewel-toned blue-green color,
    Oceanside SW 6496, as its 2018
    color of the year. “This trendy color
    is perfect for a ‘70s palette,” said Sue
    Wadden, director of color marketing
    at Sherwin-Williams. “The complex
    collision of deep blue and green in
    this color is somewhat grounding for
    more vibrant colors in a ‘70s-inspired
    palette. You can use large doses of it
    on the walls and then add brighter
    pops of color with orange or green
    a la Sherwin-Williams Amber Wave
    SW 6657 or Avocado SW 2861 on
    throw pillows and blankets.”

    A SHAGADELIC RUG
    Yes, shag is more than an Austin
    Powers euphemism. It’s also a
    resurgent design trend. Homeowners
    frequently purchase these cozy rugs
    for children’s areas like nurseries and
    playrooms. Whether sheepskin or
    conventional textiles, a shag rug is
    something you’ll go out of your way
    to walk across.

    WICKER MAN … AND FURNITURE
    A staple in sun porches for
    generations, wicker furniture is
    making a big comeback this year,
    from headboards and chairs to mirror
    frames. Available in a wide array of
    colors and shades, wicker can be used
    to create the perfect centerpiece in
    your bedroom, living room or, yes,
    even your porch.

    GREEN LIVING … LITERALLY
    In the 1970s, people believed
    that there was no such thing as too
    many plants in their home. This
    affection for indoor greenery is back,
    and homeowners have revitalized
    confidence in their green thumbs.
    From large potted plants in the
    corner to hanging basket plants,
    green living is in and people are
    loving the opportunity to create an
    urban oasis of their own.

    BRING A LITTLE ‘70S TO
    YOUR HOME TODAY
    From fresh colors and plants to
    wicker and wool, the ‘70s are back
    this year, and this modernized trend
    is defining homes across the country.
    Now is the time to experiment, so
    swing down to your local paint or
    furniture store and find the perfect
    ‘70s accent that fits your style.
