CREATE YOUR OWN 1970s INTERIORS – ON A BUDGET!

About

Supergraphic Strategies is dedicated to analyzing interior design from the late 60s and the early-to-mid 70s with the intent of utilizing the information in today’s homes. This blog focuses less on free-standing furniture and more on surfaces and the layout of the room. My interest lies in realistic projects and ideas for people working on a budget.

Topics that will be covered in this blog include:

  • Wall Treatments (Paint, Wood, Cloth)
  • Patterns and Color Schemes (Supergraphics, Fabrics, Wallpaper, Flooring)
  • Built-Ins (Seating, Storage)
  • Levels and Division of Space (Conversation Pits, Seating Platforms, Room Dividers)

Though this blog operates on the assumption that you already own several vintage pieces, I will occasionally delve into furniture that you can make yourself.

I provide citations and additional resources whenever possible. The cropped image that appears on the top of each page is from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement (1970).

Me

I am a practicing artist and graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have previously worked in classrooms as an art teacher, and currently, I develop science exhibitions for Chicago’s Field Museum. Mainly I like collecting, categorizing, analyzing, and daydreaming about my future home. You can view my artwork – bookbinding, printmaking, and interactives – at amyschleser.com.
