Decorating with 60’s Style: Ideas and Inspiration

A bit of mod flavoring and just a pinch of groovy appeal that started the 70’s splash, the 1960’s were all about posh and artistic expression, complete with clean-lines and power color pairs. Today, we’ve collected some incredible bits of inspiration that spark memories and pay homage to that clever and classy 60’s style. Let’s take a look at some charming ways to decorate with this vintage decade.

1. A Simple Nook.

A simple nook complete with a vintage, 1960’s rocking chair is all you need to take a load off and enjoy your morning coffee. The lamp with the bowed stem also helps to create a bit of mod, contemporary essence.

2. A Loud Bathroom.

With a bit of psychedelic charm this bathroom takes the edge of with the 60’s inspired counter-top. But, we really love the use of color of this space!

3. An Understated Living Room.

Just the addition of this Salvation Army coffee table creates a vintage-style. The couch, although probably a bought brand new, adds an extra bit of antiquity with its simple frame and small build, but the coffee table’s bones are what bring out that raw 60’s look.

4. A Vintage Patio.

We love how the addition of this wired furniture set helps to create an interesting, personable and fun-loving vintage flair. The color and build of the pieces are quintessential 60’s design.

5. A Combination Dining Room.

The combination of two distinct styles can make for one bold and dramatic space. The rustic walls paired with these chairs that link straight back to the 1960’s, mod personality creates such an incredible dining room, don’t you think?

6. A Serious Study.

We can’t completely tell if this is used as a dining room, study or a game room for guests, or even all three, but whatever the case it looks at if it was taken right off the set of Mad Men with this serious, simplistic styling.

7. A Fresh Living Room.

Not only is this living room eclectic and playful, but the sofa brings more and more of that mod and fresh throwback spirit to the nook we so loved before. But at the same time, this eclectic design of the room make it a youthful and in-the-now choice.

8. A Surprising Corner.

You have to pay attention to the corners too. The addition of this rug and lounge chair from our decade of choice give the nook the right kind of surprising styling.

9. A Retro Kitchen.

This wallpaper turns this kitchen inside-out and upside-down. It’s amazing that something as simple as 60’s inspired paper can transform a modern space into something so retro and sassy.

10.  A Feminine Hideaway.

A 1960’s vanity is all this space needed to make it pop with personality. Normally, we’d categorize this style as flee market chic or just basic eclecticism, but that pure vintage piece spruces it up quite a bit!
