We've always got an eye out for good potential "Guess the Decade" photos and this one really fit the bill - lots of detail to look over and a very distinctive style. But was it enough of a challenge?
...the huge majority (115) of readers who played along got it absolutely right - it is "now". 41 readers guessed the 70s. The 60s and 90s are tied with 18 votes each. 12 readers chose the 80s, 7 said the 40s and 3 went with the 50s.
We chose this room for the game because it had elements from so many eras - we could see it somewhat believably being from nearly any of the decades in our survey. But, perhaps that is what made it clearly "now" for so many of you - it's a bit of a decor retrospective!
The room was done for a 2005 Decorator Showhouse in San Francisco by Jay Jeffers. The wallpaper is from Studio Printworks and many vintage items are used, including a desk by Vladimir Kagan. More shots and details can be found right here at the Jeffers Design Group site.
