Decorating your home can be the most exciting thing ever, especially if you have a certain style and ideas. The 90’s is a difficult time to replicate because at this decade many styles and genres rose to another level and different cultures became more and more distinct.
It could be the well-known pop-art of the 60’s, which was now majorly implemented within the hip hop culture on the streets and as the art of graffiti or urban art. Or it could be the ever growing century of technologies, which took things to another level with the world wide web back in 1991, when it became available to the general public. And people couldn’t help but wonder what the future holds and how our lives will look like 10, 20 and even 30 years from then.
Yes, disco culture began back in the 70’s, but much like the pop art movement, there were still significant signs of this style through people’s interiors and style. Disco parties continued in its birth city New York all through the 90’s, Madonna later brought back this genre in the 2000’s.
Therefore – if you really want to get that 90’s vibe in your home, you might want to mix up a few different styles or you might just drop any style in your home whatsoever, stick to very simple, blunt furniture and very minimal decorations.
We do think, that if you’re looking to inject a bit of the 90’s in your home, mixing up the aforementioned styles could very well make up for a beautiful design through your home.
Pops of color, clean lines, retro style accessories, wall art that catches the eye…the list goes on of the many interesting pieces you can add into the interior of your home. In other words – every piece is thought through and has a story behind it.
