1970's Home Decor Will Bring Back All The Memories

Imagine this: Your home is covered in patterns of varying sizes, the floors hair is longer than the dog's and the walls are covered in wood. Where are you? The 1970's were a special time for home decor. Between the shag carpets and wood paneling houses didn't really have much choice. Take a look at some of these classic styles and see if they bring back any memories.

So many patterns

Because one pattern just isn't enough.

Why is everything always orange?

Varying shades of orange were just everywhere.

If orange wasn't your thing, you could have a floor with ALL the colors!

Easy to match your furniture to it because you can choose ANY color.

My parents literally had this couch.

It was scratchy and uncomfortable and eventually ended up as a dog couch.

Exposed brick didn't quite look like it does now...

Especially when mixed with that wallpaper.

It's nice when you can find patterns that compliment each other so nicely.

Nothing says relaxing bedroom like a heavily patterned wall behind your heavily patterned bed frame.

Is this where Gaston lives?

This is 100% where he lives.

Everything is very round.

Round art, round table, round fireplace, round stools.

It's just so much sometimes

It's a lot to take in...

You wanted a bright kitchen, you got it!

Imagine waking up early in the morning, not wanting to get out of bed and this is the room that keeps the coffee. Your poor pupils!

Bonus if you could get your blankets to actually match your walls though.

It camouflages your bed so it feels like the room is so much bigger!

Yikes.

At least you will always feel pretty because compared to these walls you can't possible look all that bad.

Less is more the 70's, try it out sometime!

So many patterns going on.

Wood paneling: For those who wanted to feel like they were outside without the effort of going outside.

Shag carpets in orange with orange furniture all on a lovely wooden back drop, classic.

My favorite color used to be yellow, the 70's makes me question that.

Those chairs do look kind of comfortable though.

I think the best part about this is the ceiling is also patterned

Because someone looked at the one wall and thought "needs more pattern"

That does not look comfortable...

Where could you even sit on that? Is it a couch or is it all just modern art?

Because what you need in a bathroom is wall to wall carpeting.

Could you imagine how awful that must have felt? It would never get dry. That's about as much of that as I can take, do you remember having any of these in your home back in the 70's?
