The 1960s UK Project – Ferris House

The 1960s UK house

This is another episode of the 1960s house project which looks to feature the interior of houses as they would have been in the 1960s/70s.

This time we are, in fact, in the early 1970s although this could equally be the late years of the preceding decade. I realised, as I have pointed out earlier, that a good source of original material are the various TV programs made at the time and this room appears in a comedy of the time. The house belongs to Bob and Thelma Ferris and appeared in The Likely Lads comedy series.

It is not a copy of the room used but simply my interpretation of how they might have decorated the room and it is just one incarnation. The beauty of using virtual 3D models is that I can change the furniture and decoration relatively easily which gives me the chance to try other mid-century decorative combinations. Although the series used a new house built in the early 1970s, the room could just as easily have been built in the 1960s.

In keeping with the other rooms I have made, this image is also in printable quality on my Flickr page (link below) and I have included a wide-screen format colour image and a black and white image to show how the room would have looked in a photo of the period. Also, because it looked good, I have included a tinted image.

A link to my Flickr page is here.
