THE LOVE SHACK

A holiday rental agency in West Wales recently opened a new accomodation and proved that 70s kitsch has still not lost its popular appeal. The Caban Cariad  (Welsh for “Love Shack”) is a Swedish prefab cabin that was imported into Wales in 1973. It was leased and refurbished this year by Greg Stevenson, owner of the rental agency Under the Thatch , and opened to guests in July. The decor in the cabin is a mix of vintage, modern and Ikea, with a floral couch from Erika Pekkari and orange sparkly plastic stools by Henry Massonnet, pop art on the walls, a lava lamp, a shag rug and an inset pebble fireplace.
Other than the au courant addition of eco-friendly features, the Love Shack retains its 70s aesthetic all the way. Sometimes the best way to patch up an out-of-date space is just to lay it on thick and let it bask in its old-school glory.
