Mad Men Season 6 is just around the corner, which is exciting for everyone who's waiting to see what will happen to Don Draper, Peggy Olson, Joan Harris, Pete Campbell and the rest of the gang. But it's even more exciting for everyone who tunes in to drool over the clothes and décor items that make AMC's hit series such a visual delight.
The meticulously composed sets of Mad Men have stayed loyal to the times the characters are living in as the seasons move from the early 1960s on towards the end of the decade. Everything changed in that period, and, of course, aesthetics were no exception. The regal, subdued, often masculine mid-century themes in décor and design were replaced by funk, funky, increasingly decadent perspectives as the decade wore on.
We've already seen hints of this shift in Don and Megan's swanky Manhattan apartment. In case you've forgotten, check it out in the above clip of Megan's infamous performance of "Zou Bisou Bisou." In Mad Men Season 6 we'll see how bright colors, wild patterns, unexpected mod shapes take over in the late '60s and inject every modern room with wild, swingin' energy.
