Design Through the Decades – part 71
Interior designers in the early 1970s in Phoenix loved home décor with greens, yellows/gold, and oranges. This 1971 Phoenix home had olive green carpet, gold drapes, orange velour chairs, table lamp with big shade, a hanging lamp, and wire wall sculptures (replacing the cityscape paintings of the 1960s).
Green swivel chairs and gold vinyl flooring have stood the test of time at this 1971 Sun City home.
Green carpet and orange chairs plus wood paneling are found at this 1971 Phoenix home.
For a down home feel, just add some yellow theme wallpaper to the brick kitchen as seen at this 1970 Phoenix home. Note the orange counter top and the flower metal light.
Cool pastels in paint and carpet were popular design choices. Here is a 1973 Glendale, Arizona home.
Back to the green carpet, pale green drapes, large table lamps, and hanging light of the 1970s.
More green carpet and green drapes in the bedroom, along with a God’s eye art piece.
I think we get the idea now. Green carpet, gold drapes, large lampshades, velour chairs (this one is pink!). Classic 70s.
Sculpted carpet (green once again) was a popular flooring choice in the 1970s.
Some homeowners opted for ivory and cream whites in the 1970s.
