The Greg Brady ProjectHere it is folks - interior designer extraordinaire, Greg Brady revamps an ordinary den into a swinging bachelor pad! I thought all of us budding retro home decorators could take a few tips from his genius.
Crowd the entrance foyer with decorative features. How about an owl mobile mixed with an abstract mod one. Why not try two? If you don't have space to hang it, just tack it to the wall! And don't forget flowers - paper or plastic are best.
Don't bother with furniture - barrels or crates will do. Your single bed will look a whole lot more stylish as a mattress on the floor. Is that a hookah I see before me?
Drape as many different types of patterned fabric as you can find, over as many different surfaces as you can find. Cover your walls with art - mix but don't match!
Your new room may inspire you to cultivate a whole new look for yourself.
I tend to lean towards the Marcia and Jan related episodes but 'Our Son, The Man' has to be my favourite episode so far. This is the one where Greg feels he is now a man (now he's in high school) and is in need of his own personal space. He is allowed to turn Mike's den into a bedroom decorated in his own personal style.
And what a style! I do wonder if the actor who played Greg, Barry Williams, had any input on the decor. Being a teenager, he could've given a few suggestions on what an ideal teenage pad would look like. I'm almost scared to admit that there are actually quite a few elements of this room that I like!

I'll leave you now with some immortal words of style guru Greg Brady, "Kids, what do they know about life?"
