interiors : best of mad men

with the premiere of the final season of mad men sunday, i have been thinking on how far it has come in the past 6 seasons. this show was the beginning of my love for great television…(AMC, amirite?) the direction has stayed on point with the cultural references and fashions, and i am looking forward to what this season will bring. the writing still gives me chills, like the opening scene in the premier of don on the moving sidewalk reminiscent of the same scene in the graduate. let’s take a look back at all time favorite mad men interiors…

 

early mad men…who can forget betty’s velvet tufted headboard?

there is no lack of eames, knoll, saarinen, and herman miller in claudette didul’s designs. the sets have evolved with the culture and plot and have ushered mad men into the 1970’s.

have you seen this wonderful website, wes anderson palettes

 

we are going to see wes anderson’s new movie, the grand budapest hotel this week and i am so excited. i have always been interested in set design and am feeling so inspired by the imagery and palettes in this film. anderson always creates incredible worlds within his stories (and he loves symmetry, like me.) apparently the film is set in a fictional country, zubrowka, so he literally created his own world in this case. the film sets were created in  former german department store! there is always a consistent color story in his films – some create nostalgia, some create whimsy, all of them surreal – a world more colorful than the real world. the colors of the interiors are also reminiscent of spring and the pastel pastries in the film…

spotlight : nyc’s hudson hotel

{ground level entry into hudson hotel}

a little green for your st. patrick’s day – while we were visiting nyc, we stopped into the hudson hotel for a drink. during college, i studied this boutique hotel and have always wanted to visit. it was designed by philippe stark, the product designer behind some iconic kartell furniture, namely the ghost chair. i highly recommend staying there if you can afford it…or like us, stopping by to explore the interior. there are two bars inside the hotel, a library bar, and an outdoor lounge. these first five shots are my own, but they don’t do the space justice – so i have linked to a few more from pinterest below. it is such a magical place and was the perfect retreat from the blizzard that day. we drank cocktails, ate truffle popcorn, and warmed up by the fire in hudson common.
