What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add orange — in moderation. This clean, white and determinedly contemporary room has been given a throwback flavor chiefly by the bold streak of orange that is the fireplace and chimney. The arc-style floor lamp echoes the period theme, as does the sectional sofa — which would create an entirely different effect in predictable brown corduroy. This scheme, however, is an exercise in restraint — quite unlike the original 1970s.
The freestanding Malm Lancer fireplace. We had this in mustard yellow in the '70s. What I wouldn't give for one now.
Retro. Revive a retro style by adding a quintessential fireplace to take you back in time. The cherry-red color of this one says vintage like nothing else. I had a similar one in my childhood home. Tip: Use the hue of the fireplace as an accent color and complement it with pillows, candles or rugs.Browse freestanding fireplaces in Products
A bright orange Malm Lancer fireplace brightens up the mood in this '70s-inspired living room in Palm Springs. Malm Lancer fireplaces were first first produced in the 1960s in Sonoma County, California. This style gained popularity in the '70s and still looks fresh today.
Remember that if it's your furniture, it's your call. This sectional probably looks like a big, inviting marshmallow bed to a dog. It's up to you to let the dog's guardian know if you're not comfortable with having dogs on the furniture or rugs. Although pet hairs would lift off easily from the cowhide rug in the picture above, dog urine stains are an entirely different issue. Best to roll up the rug until the dog leaves if you're not willing to risk cleaning up after an accident.Browse hundreds of cowhide rug photos
I would have thought a cowhide would be one of the last choices for floor treatments in a house with pets. To my surprise, the cowhide in my house is one of the most practical decisions I have ever made. Its texture naturally repels dog and cat hair. This interior takes full advantage of the cowhide's beauty and durability.
