Wooden kitchens like mothers appear to be dazzling following quite a while of every single white cupboard. Also, earthy colored! Pause. No. Earthy colored despite everything battles to discover a toehold in the present negligible homes however there’s some proof a resurgence is not too far off.

Wood Paneling

A mainstay in the 1960s, wood paneling is more than just retro these days. Wood paneling has made a comeback with slimmer slats and smoother surfaces.


This kitschy look dates back to the 1970s. Textile-making that’s made up of hand-tied knots instead of knitting with needles or weaving on a loom is called Macrame. Many of the original ’70s designs have resurfaced, like plant holders and wall hangings but with a more minimalist touch that makes the designs less “groovy” and more boho chic.


Houseplants, especially spider plants, and ferns were very popular accents in the 1970s. Filling up the home in all their oxygenated glory, houseplants are very popular in design today, both as a means for accenting just as much as purifying the air. Liven up a room with a living wall, or hang that spider plant in a macramé plant holder in a cozy corner.

According to research, houseplants do more than just add a touch of nature to your spaces. One study found that those who spent time in a room with a plant rated themselves as more confident and energized compared to those who spent time in spaces without plants.

Brutalist Design

The brutalist design dates back to just after World War II. Originating from the French word for “raw,” brutalism came to be when housing and government buildings were made of raw materials like concrete and steel. By the ’70s, brutalist design was in the home, with industrial metallics and furniture representing the rough surface of the concrete. Today, it serves as a juxtaposition to Mid-century modern, offering an undone look.

Graphic Art

Dating back to the 1970s, graphic art often showed up as framed posters. While graphic artwork in its entirety isn’t back in full swing, impactful and unique pieces of art are being used as a dramatic focal point in a room furnished with clean-lined furniture.

Geometric Patterns

The Ancient Greeks and Moroccans both used bold geometric patterns in their architectural and interior designs, while the 1900s saw angular structures and patterns in different forms as this design style progressed. Such patterns are also synonymous with the Art Deco period — a style, born in the ’20s, and thought to originate in Paris after WWI. Here, the swirls and floral motifs of Art Nouveau were transformed into sleeker, bolder, curved or geometric lines. The design is major right now, offering classic bold aesthetics with a sharpness that feels both playful and sleek.

Shag Rugs

Shag rugs may be synonymous with the 1970s, but they’ve come back in a new way. Instead of bright and bold, they’re much less daring today, more muted, cozy and fluffy.

Conversation Pits

Popular in luxurious homes of the mid-1970s, conversation pits featured a recessed square at its center that was filled with couches. Today, they’re making a comeback, sans the burnt orange and avocado green color scheme. With a desire for cozy yet social spaces, these pits are nestled in a sunken living room, using neutral colors for the couch and bright pillows to accent.
