A 1970s Living Room with Macrame

My Houzz: Madeline and Dawson Ellis


I am loving this weeks room as it has a real retro eclectic vibe to it. It is a 1970s living room in New Orleans and owned by Madeline and Dawson Ellis. It also has some key pieces that are on trend this season.

Get The Look:


  1. Macrame – these cream ones are from Not On The High Street.In fact you could add lots of macrame to get this look. The wall hanging is from Etsy.

  1. Low level seating – this G Plan Vintage late 1950s sofa has the teak legs to give that slight floating feel.
