70s Design With A Twist! Here Are Some Ways To Inject The Disco Decade Into Your Home.

April 1st, 2024

The 70s was all about self-expression, so what better way to show your identity in your home than taking inspiration from the iconic era and bringing it bang up to date. With a combination of bold colours and earthy tones added to daring patterns and reflective surfaces, you will be sure to inject some fun into your space! So why not get inspired and put together your own scheme inspired by the principles of the 70s…rebel against the rules of design and create a space you fully believe in.

The Albany modern 70s colour palette:

With punchy pink and statement oranges, this colour palette embraces colour that brings joy, perfectly suited to bold patterns and quirky touches. Adding colour to your space is a great way to show off your personality and makes the space feel super fun! Perfect for entertaining and creating interiors that become a real talking point which is totally unique to you.

Champagne – a pinky neutral.

Eastern Glow – a soft orange with pink undertones creating a punchy peach.

Salmon – a warm orange with red undertones.

Flamingo –  a vibrant, mid-tone pink

Strawberry – a bold pink with strong red undertones.

Incorporate a full floral moment:

Whilst florals can sometimes feel old fashioned, pairing with mid-tones and metallics can actually make them feel super modern. Using bold designs within your scheme can give your space a real cottage vibe that’s completely in right now without compromising on fun…and there is plenty to choose from with Albany wallpapers! 

Rivara, Amaira, Marimo and Zari from the Albany Fantasy wallpaper collection are fantastic floral designs full of vibrancy with a playful twist. You could create a feature wall, add wallpaper to furniture or if you’re feeling brave, why not wallpaper the ceiling! 

Add vintage furniture:

Finding second-hand, wooden furniture and giving them a new lease of life is a great way to incorporate a vintage feel. Using a woodstain is the perfect way to update the colour of the piece whilst enhancing the natural grain of the wood. Albany Original Woodstain is available in a wide range of colours, allowing you to really personalise your pieces! We have used Albany Original in Clear to work with the rest of our colour palette and celebrate the furniture’s original features.

Go bold in your accessories:

Disco balls, metallic light fixtures and brightly coloured frames and lamps are perfect for finishing your 70s inspired scheme and adding a touch of spirit. We are entering a new era of design where embracing your tastes fully and filling your home with the things you love just because you like them is not just acceptable, it’s fully on trend!
