What Houzz contributors are saying:
You can skip the unicorn if you want to, but my childhood room in the 1980s was full of both of them before Duran Duran posters took over. This eclectic room jumped out at me like Molly Shannon’s colorful beaded necklace.
Reinvent the rainbow. Probably the symbol of the 1970s, the rainbow was absolutely everywhere in this technicolor decade. Again, pairing an authentic detail with a modern backdrop is a winning plan. Adding the iconic motif to a pale voile in a pale room and throwing in a couple of other period pieces — that leather beanbag and the orange floor lamp — show stylish understatement while honoring the era.
