Take a look at this vibrant lemon yellow and black retro living room, and you may feel like you just woke up and found yourself back in the seventies.
Jammed with color and interest, the central feature in this space — seen here as it was decorated in 1971 — was the black freestanding metal fireplace set upon a low unfinished wood base.
Leading the eye to the fireplace was a large rectangular yellow and black needlepoint rug with a tight criss-cross pattern, which was reflected in the two fully-mirrored accent tables.
Opposite the fire were two modern chairs in the once super-popular cantilevered style, made with chrome and black leather.

In between, planted on both long sides of the rug, sat two large modern lemon yellow leather couches in all their retro glory. (Needlepoint showed up here, too, on the square throw pillow designs.)
One side of the stove-style fireplace had two hanging Boston ferns – sadly, without macrame plant hangers – and two oblong red woven rugs on the other.
All this color and pattern played off the raw light wood paneling and flooring. For the most part, the symmetry of the room was only broken by the wall decor.
