Big Brother, Season 12 Goes Retro Kitsch

Big Brother, Season 12 Goes Retro Kitsch

Man alive! Big Brother Season 12 is coming along swimmingly. It's our favorite guilty pleasure of the summer and this year, a team of our friends are playing fantasy Big Brother (does it get any better? Nope!). Except with this years BB house, the set designers have gone a little retro with a South Beach inspired theme.

With bedroom names like The Palm and The Sunset Room, we couldn't help but take a closer look at where this years contestants are slumbering. In one space, 1980s black and green palm wallpaper stands out but is nicely balanced with a pair of jet black (and super shiny) mid century modern chairs. We like the Sunset Room for it's thick glass blocks which give the tones of orange in the space a shimmery quality. Upstairs, the Head of Household room gets a more vintage glam makeover with pale blue walls and plush white carpeting underfoot. This years house also boasts a Cabana room (love) and a flock of faux pink Flamingos for that extra kitsch factor. There's plenty more photos (and recaps of the show) on the Big Brother website--thanks CBS!
