While the 21st century is hailed as the "Golden Age of Television," we'd be remiss not to look back on the shows that got us to where we are today - and the sets that influenced our living room style along the way. Take a step back to see how trends from iconic television sets of the past are coming back, as we apply their design lessons to the contemporary home.
The Brady Bunch - California dreamin'.
The wooden molding and stain glass window detail brings bold geometry into this classic, 70s, split-level home. Meanwhile, the indoor stone garden brings a hint of the exterior landscape inside. For today's home, we suggest sourcing local stone and wood to fill your home with stories and add a sustainable element.
The Golden Girls - Miami lounge.
With the all-rattan furniture, rose colored cushions, and generous plant foliage, you might mistake the home of TV's "Golden Girls" for that of a modern-day instagram influencer. Cane rattan furniture is a great way to both elevate your space with a classic finish, while adding a personal flair via cushion customization.
Pee Wee's Playhouse - Memphis revival.
There's no question that Pee Wee Herman's home was inspired by Ettore Sottsass & co. Taking a page from the Playhouse's bold colors (and fun personalities), we'd recommend letting a statement detail - like a red door, yellow window frame, or blue drapery - determine a complementary wallpaper pattern. And don't be afraid to mix wallpapers with other wall treatments.
