My love of ‘70s style is well-documented here on TRENDCenter. The easiest way to latch onto this fashion trend is through color, but today I want to talk about the lack of color in a way that feels modern, but still embraces the folk vibe of this era. The key here is to embrace a solid white background. Don’t go totally optic white (i.e. where it feels very cool and sterile). Instead, go for more of a vintage vibe with a warm white. Not quite ivory and not beige. While totally simple, the right shade of white is what veers this look toward a modern edginess.

Once you’ve nailed down the perfect shade of antiqued white, it’s time to layer on the color. I’m personally partial to pretty much any hue of orange when it comes to this Modern Folk trend. Tangerine, terracotta, persimmon, amber… I love ‘em all! Shake things up by adding in small pops of color in shades of pale pink, dusty blue, lavender, and charcoal grey.
Then, in terms of pattern, the sky’s the limit. Lately I’ve been loving two-color geometric rugs that feel Moroccan-inspired, but still really modern.
Which of these picks is your favorite?
