You've likely heard by now that Seventies style is back in fashion...again. Much has been written about this latest bout of Seventies fever, which seems to strike those who didn't experience this decade the first time around. Under the circumstances, it only seems fitting that we revisit a few interiors that were published in 1970. I don't think we should copy that decade's decorating room for room, but there are elements in each of these chosen interiors that, when taken out of their 1970s context, are really kind of fabulous.
So, what were prominent decorators up to at the dawn of the 1970s? Let's start with Albert Hadley, whose Manhattan living room is shown at the top of the post. I'd say that's a room that looks terrific no matter the decade.
Editor's Note: Since I wrote this article last week, I have read two more articles about the allure of 1970s-style, one in Bazaar and the other in T. I think this post will be the last on Seventies style for a while.
