The ’70s are Back! How to Bring a Little Boogie Into Your Home
Break out the platform boots and put on some disco, the ’70s are back, baby! Well, at least their interior design trends are. Apparently, millennials are responsible for the resurgence of the funky, bold decor: an interest in individualism and uniqueness means that the new home-buying generation will be cramming their houses with retro-modern furniture not seen in the past few decades. From shag rugs to the coolest kitchens you’ve ever seen, the classic style has taken on a more contemporary feel, leaving the tackiness of wood-paneled walls and plaid sofas behind. Here are a few ways you can modernize your home with a little bit of boogie.
- Bold is Better: Color seems to be the main trend if those beautiful kitchen appliances are anything to go by. Gone are the days of crisp, clean white marble countertops and stainless steel appliances — from pink marble to purple stoves, it seems new homeowners are looking for a genuine POP of color. Practicality mixed with fun — how can you go wrong? Accent chairs are another way to capitalize on this crazy combo. Bright yellow upholstery in a chic design can call to an older, more hip age without feeling old. Even bedroom dressers and coffee tables can be “funked” up by painting them a dazzlingly bold color reminiscent of the great disco era.
- Music Matters: The aesthetic of the ’70s isn’t exclusively limited to bold bedroom dressers and retro ovens; if you’ve noticed, music has been calling back to the groovy age through the re-emergence of record players. Just like the modernized furniture, the classic music players have been upgraded to high-quality devices that produce high-quality sound. Advances in technology mean these modern record players can be taken wherever you go and are entirely customizable (such as through their color, most of which is bright and bold and will match your ’70s-esque house decor effortlessly).
With the global furniture market predicted to eclipse $695 billion by next year, the boogie furniture of your dreams is definitely out there; you just need to go find it!
