Hi! i know of a shop near me that sells that exact stuff! i think it's pretty cheap! you want me to find out for you? it's great stuff my friend has it on one wall of her bedroom!
xx

Yeah that'd be great. We live in Canada so if possible we might be able to pay you to ship some out to us if that would be ok. Or if you know the name of the shop maybe we have one here.


Thanks so much, I'm sure she's going to want that on at least one wall. We'll review all the different options and pick whichever she thinks is best.


Anybody have any ideas of a style of curtain that would look nice with this theme? I think that tab tops would look too current.

Thanks again.

my kitchen/livingroom is alont that theme and  I just use theese crazy 2 way curtains w a valance ( the little bit that covers the top). curtains that I got at a yard sale, but according to this 70's decorating book reg blinds would be right to the time period. I saw a thing somewhere where the peopel rolled out the whole blind and painted it then rolled it back up!
hey if you want, I have a whole binder of 70's decorating tips which I bought in a thrift store, I could mail u some pages to borrow.
hope that helps!!

a lot of stuff you find in thrift stores has this color scheme. i like to make a trip to the thrift store and buy lots of cheap inspiring things, then work the room around those. tip: look in the sheets section for fabric to make curtains and upholstery.

You could possibly find fabric like that and attach to wall somehow I have seen similiar fabric like that online. Paint the wall a base color, and than huge pieces of the fabric attached to a canvas maybe... Just thinking outloud.

I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO LOVED 70s DECOR!!!!   Cheesy

You'll have to show us photos when she's done!  I'm working on my second 70s kitchen as we speak.  (orange and yellow and brown)

I have a retro print on my wall (huge wall hangings) I went to a local fabric store got some retro fabric and stretched it on huge canvas bars. I then hung them up on my wall like panels and voila! RETRO on a budget.

Hooking a rug with slightly different lengths of yarn, but all the same color, might give you the same effect.  I bought a black shag looking rug from Target like that, and it also has different thicknesses of yarn.  Sometimes bathmats are cheaper than rugs, but they're basically the same thing.
