Get the Look: 70s Glam with a Heavy Dose of Navy

70s-inspired interior photo with navy velvet sofa, navy walls, abstract black and white rug

How gorgeous is this interior? I pinned it a while ago and keep coming back to it. It’s so moody, plush, and glamorous. I bet the budget for this living room (if there was one!) was $75k+. The rug alone was probably $6000 or more. I wanted to see if I could capture the aesthetic of this room for a lot less. How’d I do? Let me know in the comments!

Here is a moody and glam living room for $4828! Add $20 for an orchid spray.

It looks like the inspirational room uses a satin or semi-gloss paint. I would only recommend a glossy paint if your walls are in a good shape, since a sheen will highlight imperfections. This is a gorgeous navy from Benjamin Moore: Admiral Blue.

West Elm Mid Century Sofa with ink blue velvet

West Elm has high-style, small-scaled furniture at relatively low price-points. This is the new Mid Century sofa in their Ink Blue performance velvet.

Dwell Studio Mallory chair with geometric fabric and tapered legs

DwellStudio is BACK. I don’t know what happened to them this past year… pretty much everything on their site vanished. Well, I’m happy to report that their furniture is back and AMAZING! I love the Mallory chair in this geometric print.
$979 each

Modway acrylic side table

I can’t really tell what the material is on the side table next to the sofa. I think it might be acrylic since it’s hidden so well. Regardless, this inexpensive acrylic side table from Modway will let the blue walls and sofa take the spotlight.

Gold geometric tower table lamp

Alright, so the Gold Geometric Tower lamp from Pacific Coast Lighting isn’t ridiculously huge like the inspirational image’s, but it’s definitely sculptural and quite tall at 34″.

Navy blue suede lamp shade

Replace the white shade with this navy suede lamp shade for only $35!

Safavieh Retro light gray shag rug

It was difficult to locate an abstract black & white rug for a low price. I found this light grey and black Retro low-pile rug from Safavieh with a similar spirit, and it looks great with the DwellStudio chairs.
$335 for an 8′ x 10′

Abstract black ink framed print from Minted
Minted has some GREAT curated black and white prints. I love this one by Jaime Derringer. Minted also has an amazing collection of frames.
$89 for an 11″ x 14″ framed print

Safavieh Brogen coffee table with gold legs and glass topFinally, I challenge you not to swoon over the splendor of the Brogen coffee table from Safavieh. And get this.. it’s only $149! Ahhh!!! It is the trifecta of furnishings: beautiful, inexpensive, and… hmm… what’s the final element? Oh, how about free shipping!
$149 from Overstock
