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!
