January 30, 2023

A Groovy Guide to Creating the Perfect 70s-Style Bedroom

Are you looking to channel your inner hippie and recreate a 70s bedroom? Tapping into the nostalgic vibes of this iconic decade is easy with some simple decorating tips. With the right color palette, furniture, and accessories, you can be sure your bedroom will be groovy in no time! Let’s get started.

Start with Color Palette Selection

When it comes to creating a 70s-style bedroom, color is key. During this era, bright colors were all the rage. Choose bold hues such as pinks, oranges, yellows, greens, blues—you name it! Opt for shades that are reminiscent of nature such as earthy browns or muted sage greens. If you’re feeling really daring, incorporate rainbow stripes or a colorful floral patterned wallpaper to give your room a psychedelic edge. The choice is yours!

 

Furniture Selection

When it comes to furniture selection for your 70s-inspired oasis, go big! Think statement pieces like large velvet couches or rattan chairs with vibrant cushions. When choosing wood pieces for your space opt for natural wood materials like bamboo or rattan instead of metal or plastic accents. To add more texture and visual interest to your room you can also consider incorporating woven pieces such as macrame wall hangings or shag carpets.

Accessories & Finishing Touches

The devil is in the details when it comes to crafting the perfect 70s bedroom aesthetic. You can finish off your room with vinyl records displayed on shelves or record players cornering off spaces in the room—these make great conversation starters too! Don’t forget about plants—they are essential for bringing life into any space so think about adding some succulents or even hanging plants from the ceiling for an added dramatic touch. Finally, why not add some wall art that features icons from this era such as Led Zeppelin posters or tapestries featuring Frida Kahlo?

 

 

If you have an eye for vintage furniture and you are into the hippie movement, then you have come to the right place. These retro styles have been revived and repurposed with style and flair. You can add a touch of 70s magic to any home with a few clever decorating choices. This isn't just about a new color scheme, though. Using items from different eras, and incorporating natural elements into the mix, is a fun and easy way to bring a little bit of the wild west into your modern day living room or bedroom.

 

The most important item is the furniture. A classic 70s design features low seating and metal legs. You can find replicas at your local department store, or you can get crafty and have a go at making your own. The best part is that you can make any old piece of furniture into something new and fun. To make your own, you will need some wood, paint, and a few supplies.

 

For the ultimate hippie experience, you will want to incorporate a bit of everything into your living space. A little bit of mid-century style goes a long way, especially if you aren't willing to shell out a lot of money. Furniture items like bamboo, wicker, and brightly colored shag rugs will do the trick. But be sure to check with your architect or interior designer before committing to a major renovation. They may have suggestions that you didn't even know you needed!

 

While you are at it, don't be afraid to play around with a few items you have on hand. You can even find some items at thrift stores and antique shops. Using a few well-placed pieces of furniture can create the perfect reading nook or a whimsical guest room.

 

In addition to the usual suspects, you can also try your hand at a few of the more outlandish decorating ideas. For instance, you might have a tendency to overdo it with the painting, but it's not a bad idea to include a few large-scale tapestries into your decor. Not only will they create a focal point in the room, they will also serve as a functional art piece. Of course, you should always install these pieces of furniture with caution, but with some trial and error you should be able to pull off a hippie worthy room in no time.

 

Another stumbling block to tackle is the selection of the right wall-mounted lighting. Luckily for you, you can find several companies that offer smaller LED lights as well as solar powered string lights.

 

Creating a 1970s-style bedroom doesn’t have to be difficult; just choose colors that evoke nature along with furniture and accessories that match the theme of this iconic decade and you’ll have yourself an oasis fit for any flower child in no time at all! So don’t delay; start channeling those groovy vibes today! Your inner hippie will thank you later!
