Runway Design Tips - Boho StyleDECORATING IN 70s BOHO STYLE
When you think of 70s style on the runway we think boho chic, groovy mod looks and bold prints and colors. And in the home, we have the same hallmarks at play.
Shag Rug Flokati and deep pile shag rugs were ubiquitous in the 70s, and Chassie used a Moroccan Shag rug from NuLoom as a perfect example of the boho look - looks as good today as it did then.
Fabrics for Pillows and Curtains An affordable way to bring the 70s vibe into your room is to add drapes and pillows in groovy fabrics and bright colors. Not a seamstress? No worries – there are lots of ready-mades available or you can take some fabric to a local drycleaner and they can whip up some pillows or window treatments in no time.
Metal Wall Art Metal wall sculptures became wildly popular in the 70s being the go-to medium for art ranging from abstract to floral. Chassie used sea urchin-inspired metal sculptures which can be grouped on a wall or even on a coffee table.
Lucite Coffee Table Lucite and plastic furniture were favored materials in our disco decade, and they’re making a huge comeback adding a sleek and modern vibe to any room. Lucite is super chic, comes in a variety of coffee and end tables, plus because it’s clear it helps one to avoid visual clutter in a room.
