Mad Men inspired...

Mid century modern style has made a huge comeback, due in large part to T.V. shows like Mad Men. The style back then, was clean and simple, juxtaposed with pops of color and patterns; the perfect balance.

It isn't hard to create the perfect modern day- mid century modern space.  The key is to look for pieces that are timeless and classic...that will never go out of style and will integrate easily with pieces you already have.

I was contacted by the people at to design a Mad Men inspired, mid century modern space.  If you aren't familiar with chairish, it is a huge, online consignment marketplace where those of us who love design can buy and sell gently used, pre-owned pieces...or just browse...for hours...and I did.

After...hours, of searching their website, I whittled down my top choices of must have pieces to the handful you see below.

I've created a collection of mid century modern pieces, that will translate perfectly into a current and relevant living room space.  The pieces can stand on their own, or can be mixed in with contemporary pieces just as easily.

There's something about this "room" that makes me want to pour myself a martini {and I don't even drink}, turn on some tunes and put my feet up and relax.

The pink sofa was a no brainer.  That girl is just plain gorgeous.  And the marble coffee table is like a piece of artwork.  Every room needs something earthy to warm it up and ground it; cue marble coffee table.  The turquoise chairs are just fun and add a much needed pop of color, while the gold accents add a little bit of glam.  The picture is the final touch and ties the whole room together.

Tip of the day:  visit now!  You'll thank me later.  Whether your new to the mid century craze, or as "mad" about it as I am, you'll love looking at all of the beautiful things just waiting for a new home.

  1. Hi. I don't know if you are still at this blog, but I found it today and loved your teacup clock and dishes lamp. It was a kick to see a familiar DI price sticker. That place is my favorite!
