From the runway to Instagram to the interior design world, stylists are crushing hard on the '70s right now. While we’re glad to see some kitschy items remain in the past, fun accessories, such as the disco ball, are showing up in decor. Instead of a pop of color, the disco ball is used as a pop of personality--whether it’s a touch of glam or a fun, conversation piece that makes a room less serious. Here are our favorite ways to rock the disco trend at home.

Instead of hanging a giant disco ball from the ceiling, use it to brighten an overlooked nook. Designers are tucking disco balls under desks and console tables to display as art.
