The 70s are back. From bell-bottom flares and peasant blouses to macramé plant hangers and conversation pits, the 70s are currently experiencing a serious revival. Whether you loved the decade or loathed it, there’s no denying the retro style has once again achieved popularity. However, there’s a catch to getting this trend right in your own home, and giving it a contemporary feel.
Pick the right plants
Plants are an absolute must for the 70s boho trend, and anything green goes. A large cactus in a terracotta pot looks great, as does a large tree in a basket. Or – even better – trailing plants such as devil’s Ivy and Spider plants in a macramé plant hanger strung from the ceiling.
Go bright with colour
The 70s boho interior trend is quite eclectic and a lot more friendly with colour than other interior design styles. Try incorporating saturated colours such as pink, burnt orange, red, green and other similar shades into your interior to get the look. Accent with greenery, white and pastels.
The boho trend requires lots of texture, so to get the eclectic vibes right try to incorporate natural textures into your scheme, such as linen, cotton, jute, rattan, timber, crochet, faux fur and leather.
Hang up a round mirror
Never underestimate the power of a round mirror in a prime location to make a room feel stylish and chic.
Showcase your personality
The best thing about this style is that it is very eclectic and is great for showcasing your personality. Trying hanging up trinkets collected on your travels or vintage posters for an authentic look.
Nothing says 70s like a woven chair or vintage statement furniture, such as an old crate or suitcase used as an ottoman or coffee table.
