Big Brother 16 House Pics Reveal ‘Urban Treehouse’ Theme| June 18, 2014 at 2:35 PM EDT
After a series of early, low quality looks inside the new Big Brother 16 house we’re getting a much better view of our “summer home” thanks to THR and their exclusive photo gallery from CBS.
Hollywood Reporter shared fifteen first look photos from inside the house and so far things look pretty great, for the most part. I really do like the bright colors and cheerful motif of a nature theme, but some parts are pretty dark in the color palette. Of course this will all look different once there are some Big Brother HouseGuests to go in there!
CBS production designer Scott Storey explained to THR, “This year’s theme is urban treehouse. A note from the network was that they wanted it to feel urban, young and playful and urban treehouse seemed like a perfect place to start.” I’d say he nailed the design then.
Definitely worth mentioning in the gallery from THR is a much different Memory Wall arrangement. The wall of little boxes is no more and has been replaced by two large 65″ screens turned upright. Some have speculated this indicates a divided house, but until we know more about the twist I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s just more like “2 vertical screens fill the old space well so let’s go with that.” Remember, Julie Chen will reveal details about the Big Brother 16 twist on today’s “The Talk.”
Then you’ve also go a new bathroom look after last season’s natural wood spa feel. I’ll miss that look, but this is calm and soothing which is nice. Now that bedroom looks pretty wild though, but not nearly as crazy as the “fire bedroom.” I can’t even imagine what we’ll see for the Have-Nots room!
Update: Reader Hunter points out that the rooms are described as “keeping with the nature theme — are either earth, wind, ice, fire all represented in the house,” according to Storey. Which I think Hunter is right that the Have-Nots are likely to have the “Ice” room with some very unpleasant results.
