Every decade has its own sense of style that will go in and out and then back into fashion again. Style is very cyclical like that. They used to call the '70s the decade that style forgot, but now a lot of people are really appreciating the funky and eclectic colors, weird materials and over-the-top patterns that came out of that decade. And, let's be honest, we can thank the Brady Bunch for a lot of that. A couple of generations of us grew up seeing that house week in and week out and now it's just burned in our memories as the paradigm of retro-cool. That iconic staircase, the stacked stone chimney (which was actually made out of Styrofoam), that orange and brown kitchen with the super green chairs. It's perfect!
If you want to live in "The Brady Bunch" house in the present day, why not? A few design choices and you'll be halfway there. Whether you have a thing for those shag carpets, for avocado green, for breakfast nooks or recessed seating, now's your chance to design the perfect retro home! Unleash your inner Brady Bunch character and we'll even tell you who it is based on nothing but your design ideas. Take the quiz and see!
