HGTV Obsessed Episode 10: Frozen in Time
This week Kat and Mike welcome Maureen McCormick and Dan Vickery of HGTV’s new show Frozen in Time. Then Orlando Soria lets us know that wall-to-wall carpeting isn’t such a design faux pas.
Listen in as Mike and Kat talk with Maureen McCormick (of Brady Bunch fame) and designer Dan Vickery about their new show Frozen in Time. On the show, Maureen and Dan overhaul homes that were built in the 1950s through the 1980s and are stuck in a time warp. Dan takes care of the construction and design side of the renovation while Maureen decorates with decade-specific pieces to give the homes a refreshed look with a nod to their original era.
Always full of great questions, Mike and Kat ask Maureen about her favorite decade for design. She replies, “I like every decade. Every house you walk into has a story and I feel it every time I walk in the door. I have a real appreciation for every style.”
Then Mike and Kat ask Dan when designers of tomorrow look back at today, what will they say about current design styles. Dan says, “They’re going to wonder where all the color is. Every house these days is black and white, I love a neutral palette … but I think people need to dive back into color.”
Defend the Trend: Is Mid-Mod Still on Trend?
In our Defend the Trend segment of the podcast, Kat and Mike ask Maureen and Dan if they think midcentury modern decor is on its way out. Both agree that the iconic style is here to stay. Maureen explains, “everything comes and goes, but there are certain classics that don’t go out of style — and that time period was a classic; it was sexy, sleek and cool.”
