Style trends inspired by hit Prime show, Daisy Jones & the Six

Based on the best-selling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six is a musical-drama series detailing the rise and precipitous fall of a renowned rock band. The whole series is now available to watch exclusively on Prime Video and has inadvertently launched a new interior design craze.

 In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world. Fronted by two charismatic lead singers—Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin)—the band had risen from obscurity to fame. And then, after a sold-out show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they called it quits. Now, decades later, the band members finally agree to reveal the truth. The series is the story of how an iconic band imploded at the height of its powers. There are a number of reasons for LGBTQ+ folks to watch the show, including the character of disco pioneer Simone Jackson (Nabiyah Be), who we find out is queer. Plus, Riley Keough has always had a big lesbian following, ever since 2010 when she starred in the werewolf drama Jack & Diane and played Juno Temple’s lesbian love interest; and opposite bff-or-maybe-more Jena Malone in the indie film Lovesong.

Searches for 1970’s interior style have increased 78% as Daisy Jones & the Six debuted on Prime. To respond to the fascination with the aesthetic of this era, bedroom expert Laura Burnett from Feather & Black reveals five top interior trends destined to be staples of bedroom design in the coming months.

1. 1970s style

Oh, the 1970s. The resurgence in this retro trend doesn’t stop at clothing and fashion – interiors are firmly on the rise too. 1970s-bedroom-related terms have seen a 78% increase according to Pinterest Trends in the past year.

Trends are cyclical, we’ve seen a resurgence in 1990’s style in the past decade and now more inspiration from the 1970’s creeping into the home aesthetics. There can be many reasons for this, particularly influences from the media with shows such as Daisy Jones and the Six and more using beautiful 1970s set designs that audiences love and want to replicate. Social media is also a massive draw, with it being far more accessible to find 1970’s inspiration for your home.

Succulent earth tones are an incredibly important element of this trend, particularly when placed alongside coloured patterns and textures. Muted oranges, rich greens and warm browns evoke instant nostalgia and pair beautifully with tactile wooden accents such as rattan or shiplap. Combine these warm toasty elements with fringed curtains, cushions or lampshades, and weave in touches of gold for unbridled 70s flair

2. Wooden accents

Rustic décor is a simple yet classic style choice for bedrooms. Much loved by interior enthusiasts, Pinterest searches for ‘rustic bedroom’ have risen by 203% since December 2022.

Wooden accents in the bedroom are wonderfully elegant and inviting, and it doesn’t get any more luxurious than rustic weathered oak. With gentle neutrality, weathered oak is the perfect choice for unassuming sophistication. Whether you fall in love with a beautiful, weathered oak bed or an utterly stylish bedside, wooden accents add refinement to any rustic bedroom.

3. Farmhouse style

The farmhouse aesthetic encompasses the rustic, wooden style and brings it to life.  Worldwide Pinterest searches for ‘farmhouse décor’ have risen 63% over the past three months, highlighting the growing popularity of the style. The rise in interest has been attributed to the blend of a rustic style and contemporary beauty that farmhouses offer. To incorporate this style into your living space, start with soft and light tones, whether this is for your curtains, a rug or carpet, or bedding and compliment them with darker, wooden tones for elements of furniture.

 4. Rattan

The rattan style has been steadily growing in recent months, with searches for ‘rattan furniture’ rising 316%. Whether it’s a side table, bed or wardrobe, rattan products offer a natural texture that can elevate your space. The warm and soft tones offer a sense of comfort that makes it a popular option for many.

5. Accent wall 

Splashes of colour, a beautifully stencilled design, and ornate wall panelling – indulging with an accent wall in your bedroom has enduring appeal. Interest in accent walls has risen by 69% over the last three months on Pinterest, in fact.

Accent walls allow you to express your truest style without committing to a full transformation. Wonderful innovations in this trend include almost infinite configurations of wall panelling, mouldings, and cladding to suit any number of interior styles. Why not take the opportunity to add built-in bedside conveniences? Mood lighting or useful USB ports add a touch of opulence to your bedtime routine, without the worry of unsightly wires. Once the panelling has taken shape, drench it in irresistibly cosy vanilla tones to add dimension and warmth.
