It seems like some styles come around so frequently that it's as if they never truly go away. 1960s mod is that kind of a style. Fashion and interior design alike seem to reference past eras with constant nods to color, form, texture and pattern. When done well, these influences can be integrated into the home in classic doses.
While reading the January issue of Nylon, which features a huge spread of the 237 reasons they "love the '60s" I was entranced with the bold patterns, bouffant hairdos and cat eye black liner! I realized that many of the more over the top styles can be translated in smaller doses into the modern home. Here are three examples of that theory in action!
- Featured on Fuck Yeah 60's FashionThis pixie-cut beauty is wearing a two-piece getup in bold coral and orange broad stripes. This idea also works well in the hallway of a weekend home in the Hamptons designed by Muriel Brandolini, from House and Home.
