There are many reasons I got captivated by Mad Men, this powerful story of men and their work and families in the 60's. The story for sure hooked me, the attitudes toward women still stuns me, the fashions are incredible and then of course the interiors. Roger Sterling's office is one of my favorite rooms with the Saarinen tables, white sofa and chaise longue and Bridget Riley-esque art and the touch of orange cushions and large windows over Madison Avenue. It was very chic and modern then and hasn't it held it's style today.
This new season has really used interiors to help tell the story: the haunted house Don refers to that Betty now lives in, Pete's office with the concrete pillar he walks into, to the white carpet in Don and Megan's new and fashionable apartment. And wasn't the last episode particularly dark.
