Did you guess? Yesterday's Guess the Decade post asked the AT design minds to vote on which decade the photo of this colorful, silver-ceilinged geometric motif kitchen is from.

And the correct answer is....

The Seventies. It's from Family Circle, 1971 and we found it right here on flickr, thanks to Miss Retro Modern.

Nice work, design detectives! The majority of you are tough to beat - you came through with the right decade. The seventies took the lead early on and kept it.

Art was close when he commented: "I think the oven, blender and art put this somewhere in the late 60's."

It brought back memories for E.I.F. who said, "well i'm guessing the late 60's early 70's only because growing up i had a set of sheets with that stripe design. I remember the stripes had red, orange, yellow, and brown. the fridge also looks new for that time."

Following right behind the correct voters who said the Seventies, were two groups pretty evenly split between the Sixties and the Eighties.

The Nineties and Now both got a smaller split of votes...the cable suspended table DOES seem far ahead of it's time and is most likely the element that sent the handful of votes to recent and current times.

The fifties brought up the rear, with the smallest amount of votes, but you never know - it could have been the kitchen of a suburban family who were really fashion forward!

Thanks to all who voted and played along on the original post.
