Statement Stone

An original stone fireplace is all this room needs to feel perfectly ’70s, with a modern edge.

Layered Jungalow

If hippie vibes are your thing, take note of this 1970s-inspired living room. The colorful shag carpet, exposed brick walls, oversized plants, and assortment of patterned pillows come together for a quintessential bohemian look.

Warm and Clean-Lined

In a glamorous Monte Carlo apartment, pinkish-beige marble tile flooring—original to the 1970s-built building—is accented with chunky-yet-sculptural furniture that tempers the room’s vintage bones.

4

Colorful & Sculptural

Geometric shapes and sculptural furniture—two trademarks of 1970s glamour—take center stage in this pretty-in-pink Helsinki living room.

5

Modern Ranch

In a modern Hudson River ranch house, the living room takes inspiration from the ’70s with a shag alpaca fur rug, and inlaid straw marquetry walls, which have a similar effect to the classic wood paneling.

6

Refined Bohemian

Earth tones and pops of red conjure contemporary bohemian vibes, with oversized sliding doors that bring the outdoor greenery in.

7

Japanese Zen

A Japanese house in upstate New York makes the case for shag in its open-concept living space. The rug—along with a 1970s floor lamp—welcome just a touch of the decade into an otherwise modern room.

8

Hollywood Glamour

This living room takes cues from the golden age of Hollywood, with a disco-inspired light fixture and subtle pops of orange.

A Glamorous Palette

A pair of 1970s velvet chairs sit atop a geometric shag rug, creating a playful vibe that can transcend over time.

Gilded Pied-à-Terre

A warm wood palette, glitzy touches of gold, and a statement 1970s Pino Signoretto vase are offset by modern lighting and a silk rug in this London living room.

11

An Eclectic Mix

Playful yet sophisticated, this São Paulo living room features a mix of different styles and time periods, all backed by a mirrored wall—a true 1970s trademark.

12

Understated Accents

A muted dash of orange and a wicker accent chair result in a toned-down ’70s vibe that can be updated over time.
