Retro or Modern?

Think you're au courant on current-day styles and those from thirty-odd years ago? Put that belief to the test when you take my quiz! Some of these photos are from slideshows of current houses, while others are from the 1971 book Decorating and Design by Jacqueline Inchbald. Can you tell the difference?

This quiz should have been called "Vintage or Retro?" because retro means current styles that reflect the past.

8/10 but this one was tricky, I really didn't read past the headline until about the 5th question so I got a little confused.. O_o Anyone knows where I could find the lamp from Suzy Hoodless's portfolio in question 5? I've been looking for a lamp just like that for ages!

8/10 - what was up with that messy messy "modern" bedroom? Hated that. And is a goat-skin on the kitchen floor practical? Sorry for being a buzz-kill but....
