Let's Pretend We Know What 1963 Looks Like

Congratulations to Mad Men on their Best Outstanding Drama Emmy. This has been one of my favorite shows as of late--in large part to the early 1960's set design.

In case you have yet to catch an episode, perhaps this little behind-the-scenes segment with set decorator Amy Wells and production designer Dan Bishop will put you in the mood for some good old fashioned television. The Season One DVD extras explore the design background even further.
For refurbished, mid-century modern antiques and furnishings, I love exploring Atlanta's Belvedere showroom. To date I have only been a browser, but one of these days...

I am in love with this show, too.

And the set.

I always watch old movies for the sets and have been meaning to post about it.

This is the only television I watch -- well, apart from Giada -- and I love both the characters and the look. Stunning.

There really is something for everyone on this show and the writing is fantastic. I am so glad they won!

I would kill for those abstract paintings in the boardroom! They are so fabulous!
