Guest Post: 60’s inspired Interiors

Hello! I’m Jessica, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a website and blog with a wonderful selection of affordable lighting fixtures from kitchen lights to under cabinet lights, and interior design inspirations every day! I’m delighted to be guest posting for 2e Designs! Today I'd like to share a collection of fun living rooms featuring swanky 60s style. 1960's interior designs were all about bold colors, crisp geometric shapes and sleek curving lines. And let's not forget, shag carpets and plastic furniture! I hope you enjoy these rooms as much as I do!

60s Swank Stark geometric lines draw the eye to every corner of the room in this very chic 60s inspired living room. Wood paneling and wall of intricate brass fills the room with rich natural textures.

60s Swank Shag carpet, check. Shaggy floor pillows, check. This bright and airy living room showcases a relaxed boho style that was very popular in the 1960s.

60s Swank Bold patterns and polished wood furniture clash in a fun, unexpected way in this living room. Plenty of mirrors help make the room feel more spacious, as well.

60s Swank A bright, mustard yellow makes this vignette pop, while the chic modern furniture and art are the perfect 60s era pieces. The brassy floor lamp adds in more geometric lines.

60s Swank The velvety avocado sofa makes a great textural contrast against the brick wall. Fresh greenery and an iconic shag carpet complete this cozy, swanky living room.

60s Swank The very modern stools and the minimal, geometric fireplace are as popular today as they would be in the 1960s. A star burst mirror gives a nod to the space age trends of the 60s as well.

60s Swank This incredibly spacious living room features a sunken seating area that was particularly popular in the 60s. Skylights and recessed lighting help keep the room feeling open and airy.

60s Swank Orange red and avocado are an iconic 1960s color combo. The tufted leather chaise longue is another iconic piece of furniture from the 60s.  Images 1 | 2 | 3 |4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
