|A Mid-Century Modern interior. I had to laugh when I saw this. It's such|
an accurate depiction of the style as its kitschy worst. Turquoise and brown? And get a load of those lampshades!
|The Cleaver 1950s family values included June Cleaver in high heels and earrings every day. Notice that the two guest rooms on the second floor of the Cleaver home have no access to even a shared bathroom.|
|The Brady home, inside and out, was pure California Modern in style, |
though the kids' sleeping quarters must have been a bit cozy.
|Furniture forms followed functions. Comfort trumped decoration.|
|Color run amuck, porcelain, chrome, and plastic|
--beauty and convenience at an affordable price.
|Not much to see here, people, move on...|
|The den/rumpus room/rec room/office/family room, |
a reflection of the family itself.
|Notice the passing of the footboard in favor of what |
came to be known as the "Hollywood" bed.
|Hot pinks and moss greens together...UGH.|
|The Lane living room--Postmodern with |
lingering traces of the Mid-century.
|Is that June Cleaver or Carol Brady |
retrieving leftovers to feed her family?
