For better or worse, the sixties were an incredible decade in American history. The Vietnam War and Civil Rights Movement were in full swing, the first man was landing on the moon, color televisions made their way into American homes, and skirt lengths were getting gloriously shorter by the day.

One of the best marks of the decade was the style, which was loud, bawdy, colorful, and sometimes even a little bit space-age. This house in Toronto, which looks pretty ordinary from the outside, is like a kooky sixties time capsule on the inside. Step through the front door - and back in time.

Having a breakfast nook in the sixties was totally happening and cool.

Finally, what would a sixties home be without a basement bar for the men to smoke cigars...

...and for the women to do laundry and wash their dishes. In some ways, we're glad that times have changed.
