Disco style in the interior: how to decorate a house in the style of the 1970s

Disco music, popular in the 1970s and 1980s, blew up more than one dance floor. The heyday of style in our latitudes did not last long, and today the bright era is remembered with slight nostalgia: many of us lack light madness in gray everyday life. What if you are inspired by style and transfer this cheerful motif to the interior? We promise: life will become better, and, no doubt, more fun. But, in order not to slide into vulgarity and kitsch, be careful.

Cassidy Hughes Interior Design

Neon Light
Neon is often used in urban interiors, although it usually acts as an additional illumination. You can correct this situation, and at the same time install neon shades of the dance floor in the house. The convenience of such lighting is that usually the color of the backlight is regulated by a slight turn of the switch, which allows you to change it at least every hour.

Thin tapes are connected in series using adapters - the probability of making a mistake during installation is almost zero. The lightness of the product allows you to mount it on both static and suspended elements.

Usually the tape is fixed horizontally under the ceiling or furniture, but we offer a more daring option: place it vertically along the wall at regular intervals. Keep in mind that this holiday atmosphere doesn't take long to get you crazy, so this scenario is more suitable for non-residential spaces, such as a narrow hallway or a guest bathroom.

Anik Pearson Architect, P.C.

Mirror Sphere
How can you transform an ordinary modern living room into a disco style interior without changing anything? Hang a mirror ball from the ceiling. This element is so strongly associated with disco that it gives rise to positive and dynamic associations even without the help of other decorative techniques.

Do you want to combine business with pleasure? Choose a disco ball with built-in lighting and get rid of the old chandelier: now you have a youthful accent in the interior and a full-fledged lamp that will turn any formal dinner into a friendly party.

Meister Construction Ltd

Really exotic - find a non-standard place for a shiny ball, for example, put it on the edge of the bath. With such a disco ball, water procedures will become a daily holiday. After all, many people like to sing in the shower - why not dance there?

Architectural Alliance Inc.

In fact, disco-inspired items are not uncommon in interior collections. Look at this complex metal lamp with many spheres - to me, it literally screams about the lights of the dance floor.

Choose a light base
Disco is not so much an interior style bound by rigid canons as a reason to let your imagination run wild. The optimistic concept suggests bolder use of bright colors in the main finishes and decorative elements, combining geometric shapes, alternating matte and glossy textures and placing unexpected accents. Doubting your skills as a colorist? Start with a white neutral finish and a few contrasting hues like blue, yellow and red in this example. The base color will balance bright spots and allow you to boldly play with active shades.

Home Staging

With a colorful room divider and eccentric chandelier, this interior looks daring and expressive - quite in the spirit of disco, but the white drapery at the head of the bed and the floor of a neutral wood tone save the room from being overloaded with color.

Axis Mundi

Keep the rhythm
Disco music is not only drive, but also rhythm. If we translate musical notation into the language of the interior, such a score is best matched by the alternation of contrasting stripes. If you are ready for an impromptu rainbow to decorate an entire wall, choose other trims and accessories more carefully: the active print does not tolerate competitors and slides into vulgarity from meeting them. A good example is to combine striped wallpaper with a light floor, a large white lamp and chairs to match the stripes, as in this cheerful living room.

Pink Door Designs

The opposite approach works just as well: multi-directional stripes set the tone. True, this technique is less predictable in terms of visual effect, so it is better to limit yourself to stripes of the same color.

Alison Damonte Design

To make the interior brighter, it is not necessary to start repairs and refinish the walls: striped accessories - textiles or an unusual lamp - can also add a disco style accent.

Splashes of light
Relaxing on the dance floor is a pleasure for the dark, and disco is not accidentally associated with the night. The owners of this bathroom delicately exploit the motif: a small glossy mosaic shimmers with cold lights in the rays of the built-in lamp.

Scheer & Co. Interior Design

Sparks in the folds of fabric
Shiny fabrics conquered the fashion Olympus in the late 1970s: going to the discos, progressive girls wore "snake" leggings and short shiny tops. Today, when this dance fashion has become a part of history, disco-style outfits are reminiscent of draperies with a metallic sheen.

You can decorate a window with such textiles, so that the sun's rays play in the folds of the fabric, and zone the room. When choosing a fabric, consider the orientation of the windows: if the room is dark for most of the day, fabrics with a warm golden sheen will suit you. For bright rooms that warm up well during the day, textiles with a cold sheen will come in handy - it will balance the visual temperature.

Steven Miller Design Studio, Inc.

Do not forget that the disco style appeared as a challenge to the conservative lifestyle of the older generation, and emphasized eroticism became one of the elements of culture. This facet of style requires a particularly careful approach. A good option is to translate erotic motifs into a frivolous, cartoon format. For example, such a print on a pillow cover does not look too defiant.

Jasmine McClelland Design

Emphasis on glass
An essential attribute of a disco is reflective surfaces, be it a mirror or glass. In this interior, an accent red wall of glass blocks with a three-dimensional pattern appeared, and the completeness of the picture was achieved thanks to a round lamp: reflected in the mirror, the decor visually expands the boundaries of space.

OMNI Interiors

Look for expressive parallels
Despite the fact that vinyl records and CDs have long become an anachronism, they are useful in order to decorate the interior in the chosen key. Do not hide your rarities: they will look much more expressive on the wall in a bright interior than on the farthest shelf of the closet.

Beauty and fashion

Every decade has its fashionable signs. For example, the incendiary 70s are a bright and sometimes even extravagant disco clothing .

The main youth "breakthrough" of the seventies is discos . The new dances were not at all like those that had been customary to dance before. There were no clearly fixed obligatory steps and their definite sequence. The movements were simple, the rhythm was clear, so the disco style quickly became popular and widespread.

The atmosphere of the discos of the 70s was festive, the dance floor itself was more like a bright and exotic carnival - light, sparkle, incendiary music, sparkling positive and unrestrained fun. Disco clothing was also in line with the general trend - it was bright, shiny and unusual .

Trendsetters of became popular performers of those years - Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Bee Gees . The youth wanted not just to dance to the songs of idols - they wanted to look like idols look like. Disco-style stage clothes were original and eccentric, and sometimes even provocative. Short denim shorts worn with bright tights, loose shirts and tunic dresses, an abundance of sequins and sequins - all these signs of style migrated from the stage to the dance floor.

Disco clothing featured extraordinary variety Flared jeans, skinny satin trousers, banana trousers (introduced in the early 80s), short shorts, lurex knitted tights, translucent tops and tank tops, lycra bodysuits, shiny synthetic shirts, dresses with shocking cuts… There were no restrictions. The main thing is originality, outrageousness, the combination of the incompatible. The brighter and more unusual, the better.

For men, the iconic disco style was Tony Manero from the cult film Saturday Night Fever (played by John Travolta). White suit and black shirt or turtleneck - real disco chic! Men also wore tight, shiny trousers or jeans, tight at the top and flared at the bottom. Along with shirts, turtlenecks (worn under a jacket or on their own) were very popular. Men's disco clothes were often bright colors - bright yellow, salad, orange, silver, metallic. The brave ones even wore leopard-like overalls.

If men's disco clothing approached women's clothing, then from ladies' outfits was the opposite. Women preferred wide, masculine-style shirts, which made them even more feminine (this was especially facilitated by the habit of not wearing underwear and not fastening the top buttons of the shirt that way). In addition, the ladies wore shorts and t-shirts in the colors of the “gouged eyes”, denim sundresses and maxi skirts. If the sandals are certainly silver and on a high platform (however, in the late 70s, the platform gave way to a hairpin).

Often, however, disco clothing was not typically 'feminine' or 'masculine'. Popular was unisex style , but with some "bias" in femininity. Men did not hesitate to wear tight jeans or white leather trousers, translucent tops or T-shirts. The most daring disco regulars even put on make-up - just as brightly as the girls.

disco make-up deserves a special mention. The standard of makeup of the 70s is bright blue eyelids and pink lips. However, other colors were also in favor - purple, lilac, rose-lilac, pink-purple. Special chic - shadows and lipstick with mother of pearl. They applied cosmetics carelessly - no one followed the clarity of the lines. And shine, more shine! Glitter on the face and hair, self-tanning on the body, mother-of-pearl nail polish. Add to this an abundance of decorations that would be the envy of a Christmas tree, and an Afro hairstyle (possibly in the form of a wig) - and you get a portrait of a typical representative of the disco style.

Unlike ethnic or casual style, disco clothing was not seen on the streets. Casual clothes of disco lovers usually did not differ from the outfits of those around them, and only with the onset of the evening they put on bright, shiny, extravagant things and went to dance and enjoy life.
