Inspirations: The Don Draper apartment

If you are a true blue ‘Mad Men’ fan or just a Midcentury Modern design fan, I am guessing that Don Draper’s new Manhattan home in Apartment 17-B would interest you.  Set in June 1966, the apartment is described by set decorator Claudette Didul as “a high-rise that feels like it was built in 1960 with a white-carpeted sunken living room and a fascinating fireplace and a Case Study-style kitchen with two pass through windows.”  I’ll leave you to check out the colorful blue and coral kitchen below, and don’t forget to visit the article from LA Times and NY Times to read more about where the set designers got their inspirations and furnishings from.

  1. Fantastic post and love the Art Deco furniture pieces! The bold colours of the cabinet doors really add an interesting dimension. Thanks for sharing

    • @Terence: Thanks. I wouldn’t suggest anyone going for the look wholesale, but found the carpentry and details interesting. Who knows, we may start seeing ‘Don Draper’ inspired kitchens soon. 🙂
