We’re All Obsessed With 70’s Design Trends, And We Didn’t Even Know It

Happy Wednesday! A couple weeks ago Erica was snapping her “new” vintage interior design magazines, and I was drooling like a mad woman. Lucite, rattan, and glam, oh my! She clued me in on that fact that we are all obsessed over 70’s design trends, and we didn’t even know it. ERMERGERD!!!!! Seriously, she’s so right! Don’t believe me, read on my friend. 

I know I’m not breaking any news here when I point out that boho design is a “thing” right now in the design world.

But I discovered recently, that “boho” is *actually * just code word for 70’s design. So if you love boho, you love 70’s design. BOOM. Yep, it’s totally true.

A few weekends ago, I was at a vintage art book sale, and I found a stack of interior design magazines from the 1970s. OH MAH GERD.

There are some boho trends right now that we’ve all heard about: succulents, vintage textiles, woven wall hangings, macramé…but I wanted to dive in and dig a little deeper to uncover some of the boho trends that you might not have realized were straight out of the Saturday Night Fever, high-waisted jean, feathered hair loving 1970’s.

Get on board ppl, cause all of this stuff is H-A-P-P-E-N-I-N-G.

Have A Seat – Jonathan Louis Poufs Save The Day

The new house has posed many furniture challenges. Coming from an open concept to more of a traditional layout has proven to be difficult. One cannot take a living room from the old house and plop it into a new house. No sir-e-bob. Case in point, our beloved sectional. Well, both sectionals actually…fondly known as couchzilla. In an open concept space, they looked welcoming and comfy. At the old house, I’d flop down on that bad boy after a long hard day, cocktail in hand, and pin the night away. Not so much in the new space.

Peace out Couchzilla. Adding more seating to a room with poufs

The New Old House Punch List — Oh, and The Boy Flooded the Basement

When you buy a new old house there are so many issues that can pop up. Ours is not old, old…like Victorian old. I mean, let’s face it. The Boy would never let me buy a structure with leaded windows, a wood burning furnace, turret, spiral staircase, or parlor room. In fact, when I suggested we look at one, he laughed and exclaimed, “Do you know just how many electrical issues are in a home like that Kyla?!?!” It was a hard no.

Buying a new old house and oh, The Boy flooded the basement.

Beautiful Distractions No. 2

Nothing like some mid-week distractions to really pass the day away. Am I right? Every morning and evening I’m perusing Pinterest, reading blog posts, scanning new catalog and magazine arrivals and oooohing and aaaahing over pretty things. Sometimes I share them on Snapchat (like my spa night last Saturday or my blunders in self tanning), but most of the time, you never get to hear what I’m really loving right now…this very instant. That’s what Beautiful Distractions is all about.
