hippie chic…
groovy and green

Everything that goes around comes around. Fashion and home décor trends tend to repeat themselves, each incarnation bringing a new, more modern twist to the classic look. It should come as no surprise that shag rugs and vivid colors have come back into vogue. The colors and styles of the ‘60s and ‘70s were vivid and fun. While bringing back avocado green appliances and gas guzzling station wagons isn’t such a green idea, there are certainly some hippie chic styles we can embrace and modernize.

It was an era of upheaval, where politics, science, technology and ideals were changing radically. Not unlike today, really. It was a time when people embraced color in fashion and in their homes. Today, after years of living in the shadow of beige, color is making a comeback. Hippie chic means throwing out the rulebook on color combinations and instead opting for things you love.
