As much as we want to be Penny Lane, there are a lot of trends from the 70s that should stay in that decade, like shag carpeting and sunken living rooms. But there’s a case to be made for many throwback looks from the decade in modern homes.

1. Don’t Shy Away from Wood Tones

A little rock ‘n’ roll boho is easily achieved through stacked warm wood tones. A wall of wood paneling and/or pieces of furniture will do.

2. Place Natural Accents on Display

Petrified wood bookends will paint a pretty picture. Same for agate and other stone.

3. Bring in Some Houseplants
