Trend Spotting | 50's Style by Don Draper

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

I'm assuming he's a distant cousin, twice removed from the Queen of Decorating Tastemakers, the one and only Dorothy Draper herself. Why else would I become so overly consumed with everything Mad Men that I've almost forgotten that Gossip Girl is on hiatus? Dashing yet tortured leading man (enlivened by Jon Hamm) + 60's sophisticated chic interiors + daringly suggestive plotlines = one happy psych-obsessed interior designer (i.e. moi). 

After having devoured Sunday's Season 4 premiere episode last night on DVR armed with Haribo gummies in one hand and 98% fat free popcorn in the other, I'm once again transported to a seemingly idyllic era where porcelain veneers obscure what dirty secrets lie beneath. Oh how I love Sunday Fundays...first DS, now MM's back?!...Summer's prime time stock is finally looking up y'all.

Prepare to see Casa Khuu transformed into another Don Draper hideaway where it's all about patterns, textures, and vintage accessories. Understated opulence never looked so dang stylish! Cocktails and cigarettes on the hour, every hour?! Where do I sign up?
