The Brady Bunch took the number one spot and with the recent '70s comeback (especially in fashion), it comes as no surprise that we'd look to this iconic show for retro-cool home ideas. In 2019, the show was even a part of a reality miniseries called A Very Brady Renovation, which saw the original house used for the series brought back to life (maybe sparking some ‘70s nostalgia in the audience).

If you're over the '70s trend then take it a decade back and look at the 1960s for some midcentury decor and furniture ideas.  Back when the AMC series was on-air, its popularity sparked the "Mad Men effect," which had people adopting the period look of the offices and homes of Don Draper & Co. into their own spaces. Clearly, the show still has style clout, as it still receives over 6,000 searches a year since the series has been off the air.

For those looking for a more refined touch to your home, then look no further than Downton Abbey. While you may not be able to recreate the decor to scale, the show is the perfect place to start if you want to add a more Victorian-era elegance into your home.
