70's Revival

Posted by Megan Lopez on

Leave it to us millennials to revive old retro trends and make them new again.  There's no doubt fashion is constantly being brought back from previous decades, like the crop top or flare jeans, but a new trend is hitting the living spaces of the 'fresh out of my moms house' societal group. Macrame was plastered over the walls of every 70's home in the country and is now finding a new home. From Anthropology to World Market, you can see all sorts of macrame decorations for around the home. Wall hangings, plant holders, even rugs and pillow cases are targeted to consumers looking for a cozy boho feel to their living space. 

Luckily for locals, Olde Fields has acquired some macrame pieces! All our in store wall hangs and plant holders are handmade by a local artist for that unique touch. 

I know trying a trend can be scary, especially those who have a specific way they like their home to look, but here are some ways to incorporate gorgeous macrame decor that will add texture and a sense of naturalness to your cozy home.
