Retro 1970's Interior Design

There is a great trend toward retro styles at the moment. I read an article a few weeks ago about the popularity of Art Deco with young Melbournians. They are snapping up any Art Deco style houses on sale. They love the geometric forms of the era. 

Many icon’s of the 1970’s are also trendy. The bedroom above is in 1970's style. The Shag Pile carpets and rugs of the 1970’s are again popular.
