I’m obsessed with 1976.
My parents’ house was built in 1976, and I’ve had this lifelong fantasy of coming into a lot of money to fully remodel their gloomy, little digs. For years I’ve researched 1970s interiors so that, if ever given the opportunity to mess with my their place, I could preserve its 1970s roots while giving it more contemporary flair.
One of my favorite places of inspiration is this Gramercy penthouse in New York City designed by Andreea Avram Rusu. The colors and materials feel 1970s but without the gloomy darkness of many of the homes built during that period.
I especially love that almost tiger-eye wall surrounding the fireplace. Does anyone know what material it is, and how costly?
