    Default Paris in the seventies

    Is this sentence correct:
    1-His major source of inspiration comes from Paris in the Seventies.

    I would have said "the Paris of the Seventies".
    Comapre:
    2-He was in love with the Paris of the Seventies.
    with:
    3-He was in love with Paris in the Seventies.

    I think it is okay, but your revision would be a definite improvement.

    Those two sentences mean two quite different things.
