Did you think the Brady girls' room was just super too?
I loved racing home from school to watch the apple pie lives of The Brady Bunch family play out against a backdrop of bright green AstroTurf and faux wood panelling. And of course the Brady girls' room was the first on-screen kid's space I adored. All that carefully coordinated pink!
Fancy recreating the space that was home to Marcia's heartbreak, Jan's jealousy and Cindy's pouting? These 5 tips will get you well on the way:
1. Pink was the colour of the day in the earliest Brady girls' room. You might like to try the shade 'Birthday Candle' by Porter's Original Paints for painting the doors, window frames and cornices.
2. Papering the walls, or even just one feature wall in vintage daisy paper will provide a genuine '70s mood. You might like to try '70s wallpaper in pink and white from Rico Bel on Etsy, or vintage daisy wallpaper in pink, blue and yellow from Kitschy Koo Collage.
3. Nothing says the '70s like a chenille spread. This pink and white beauty from Vintage Retrievers is a wonderful complete piece. You can also find a nice array of chenille spreads and fabrics at Sleeping Cat Cottage.
4. I never realised before that the Brady ladies were uke fans but their dresser décor holds the proof. You can choose your own at Ukulele.com.au.
5. Complete the Brady look with an outfit fit for "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" using this 1960s Butterick pattern from Miss Betty's Attic. If (like me) your sewing skills are somewhat lacking you might like to use the skills of someone like Faithworks4U who specialise in making girls vintage style dresses.
