Blast From The Past
We’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with the 1970s. on the one hand, it gave us Studio 54 and all the glam fashion that came with. on the other, the decade resulted in copious amounts of cord and an unadulterated need to colour everything an unsightly shade of burnt orange or brown. However, thanks to a very selective edit on the high street’s part, we’re able to invite the best bits of the (often questionable) 70s back into our homes. From plush armchairs and walnut nesting tables to colourful ceramics and dazzling drink sets, it’s time to get retrospective.
‘The secret to nailing the 70s vibe is to avoid matchy-matchy items. Break up bright pieces with dashes of wood and pastel tones to create a multi-layered look.’ Maxine eggenberger, Fashion news editor
