Are you still in love with the 70’s look? Let’s take your love to the next level and change your room to a retro 70’s room. Here are a few simple things that you can change, and your room will get the colorful retro look you long for.
Color Pop Chair
Does your room have a couple of chairs in it? You can replace those chairs with some color popping chairs.
Orange is a great color for this. The color was super popular in the 70’s. Or even an orangey red is awesome too.
70’s Heavy Wooden Bed
If you have the budget, you can go all out and change your furniture. You can look for a 70’s heavy wooden bed or even a waterbed. But if you are looking to spend less, then you can just change the bedding.
Select some 70’s styled bedding which is often big prints in bold colors. It’ll make you feel like you are sleeping on a rainbow.
Wallpaper from the 70’s
Changing your walls can be a good idea. Black wallpaper from Wallpaper From The 70s will get you feeling like you are actually in 70’s again. Break out the black light and get your groove on!
The good thing about wallpaper that looks like they from the 70’s is that they are actually printed on modern machines. So you will get a better version of the 70’s in the current age. A lot of designs and patterns are available these days, just choose the one that takes you back in time.
Pinewood Chest of Drawers
You might have seen the drawer chest in every 70’s movie. Every bedroom used to have some kind of dresser which was often annexed to the study desk. Books and such used to be there.
You can still find some pinewood chest of drawers or even desks for your room. All you need is to get it polished or painted in the 70’s style.
A Big Wooden Clock
Sunburst shaped clocks would go well with this theme, and you can easily find them in any clock store. If that doesn’t suit you, you can always search for the cuckoo clock as well.
Cuckoo clocks were like hot cakes in 70’s. But keep in mind that traditional cuckoo clocks are quite costly these days.
How can you forget the recliner chair? Good news is that people still prefer the classical style in recliner chairs. The frame should be of thick wood with a darker pattern and colors.
If you want a classic look, then you can go for orange type brown or red tones to instantly get the retro look.
For tablecloths and cushions, you can try the old-fashioned floral prints. The base used to be white most of the times while bright colors were used in prints or embroidery.
If you are really into it, put down a shag rug for some extra flair!
