The Age of Aquarius is so over, but many of the decorative trends of the ’70s, ’80s, and even ’90s are making a comeback. Macrame, anyone?
Nostalgia is a powerful thing—just look at all the excitement over the “Brady Bunch” house and the upcoming HGTV show chronicling its “restoration” to the 1970s glory it never had (the interiors on “The Brady Bunch” were actually shot on a set).
But while we might be fascinated by this transformation on-screen, when it comes to our own homes, we don’t want to just mindlessly slap avocado green and harvest gold onto the walls. So try these retro looks with a modern twist, instead.
Colorful terrazzo, which has been used for centuries in office buildings and schools, never had much of a place in residential interiors—until now. And that’s good news for Libras, who are most likely to lust after quality materials like terrazzo, Alexander says.
“Libras have a keen eye for quality and appreciate the finer things in life,” she says. “They want the real deal and won’t settle for knockoffs. These classy people also have an innate sense of balance and know how to combine colors, textures, and styles to create a tasteful and harmonious environment.”
