The post below on 309 Round Hill Road spurred me to look for images of the 1970s home and not only did I find some, I stumbled across this horrifying news: the look may be coming back.
[E] ven if you’re not looking to create a retro-room, the ’70s was not the design debacle era that you might think it was. Much of what came to be during that decade is highly adaptable to our 21st century.
Take a look at some examples.
Shag Carpets and Rugs
Shag carpets are one item that was very popular in the 1970s. They are still available at some carpet outlets. They can be found in gold and brown tones that were so popular back in the day. A more ‘controlled’ alternative in recent years has been the shag area rug, very often contrasted to the smoothness of a wood floor, or a tile floor.
The eat-at bar and decorative stools were also common in the 1970s and are a simple addition to your home. The bars traditionally included storage space for kitchen items with a tabletop that was smooth and colored to match your kitchen.
