I'm back with Part 2 of my favorite vintage 70's Interior Decoration photos to share with ya"ll! All from a fabulous book I picked up on a thrift trip called- House & Garden's Complete Guide To Interior Decoration. It's a sublime book filled with too many photos to share. If you love retro interiors I would strongly recommend searching one of these babies out for yourself. You can find them from all different decades on Amazon or Ebay. Check out more pretty pictures in Part 1 Here.

I recently picked up this copy of a vintage House & Garden's Complete Guide To Interior Design from the 1970's. And I Am In LOVE. I have always marveled at how trends in fashion come back around to visit again and again. I guess the same is very much true in all areas of design. Many of these images (if taken with a modern lens) could be of a space designed today.
I have been pouring over the pages and delighting in every little detail! From the ultra modern furniture, global influences and more organic hippie touches- it was an era in design I'm very much feeling at the moment. It's also a great way to age and place decor items that I source for my Shop, to get a better idea of when they were made and how they were styled. Too much fun!
It was crazy hard to narrow down which images to share with ya'll since there are so many inspirational shots. So much Color and so many (drool) fantastic furniture and art pieces! And the tiles in the above image are what my dreams are made of...seriously - how fab are they?
I have a " Part Two" with more images coming soon, so stay tuned for more 70's yumminess to come!

I came across these images via The Design Files Blog today and rushed to share. With the Earthy and organic vibe it's no wonder it is the home of a florist-Sarah Nolan, based out of Melbourne.
What an incredible eye she has for color, natural elements and soulful objects in her home design. She makes what could feel like a cavernous space seem so warm and enveloping. No easy task with the soaring ceilings and huge windows. (Although the amazing materials of the flooring, walls, and ceilings help)
This is a space I could love to live in! If only.
Plants, old brick and wood grain just do it for me- ya' know?
