So fashion is having a huge 1970s moment. Flares, platforms, shearling have been covering the runway.
Where fashion trends go, interior design trends tend to follow shortly after.
1970s interiors were all about colour, patterns and textures. Bold, brash and excessive - could this be end of the industrial, minimalist chic look that I hold so dear to my heart?
I remember in one of my first interior design classes, my tutor mentioned that people generally have two different styles that they tend towards, which may be quite different. This can usually be seen in a beginners’ first mood boards – the board can often be divided into two quite distinct styles.
It was absolutely the case for my first mood board. Alongside sleek, minimal, neutral interiors there is absolutely a part of me that’s drawn to graphic patterns, interesting textures and bold colours. Bring on the 70s.
If you live in London and are looking for further inspiration, there’s a great exhibition on at the Fashion and Textile Museum: Thea Porter 70s Bohemian Chic. More information here.
