All the Best Interiors From Mad Men
Season 7 (Part 1) of Mad Men is streaming now on Netflix, with the final episodes bowing on AMC on April 5. We've taken a look back at our favourite sets, from Don and Betty's all-American abode to Megan's boho-chic, oh-so-Hollywood lair. Get lost in these inspired rooms, full of bright hues, midcentury vibes, and that quintessential Mad Men style.
Shop The Look:
Back when the Drapers were still basking in Norman Rockwell-esque family ideals, their shared home featured a thoughtful mix of classic antiques and modern sophistication. Heirlooms are juxtaposed with clean lines reflecting the trademark debutante, aloofness of Betty Draper.
In early seasons, Don and Betty's bedroom featured a bright turquoise, velvet tufted headboard and gold, metallic accents throughout. The rich textures and sparkling, feminine touches feel iconic yet demure—just like Don's starter wife.
Betty's Craftsman kitchen is as American as apple pie. Plaid wallpaper and plenty of warm woods are perfectly complemented by shades of red and green. The cosy, laid-back space is the kind of unassuming spot one might relay some juicy gossip. It remains one of our favourite set pieces.
Murano vases, silk drapes, modern chinoiserie, and Japanese influences predominated Betty's living room refresh. The worldy, luxurious feel hinted at Betty's aspirational desires.
Woods and avocado greens compose the precursor to Roger's ultra-mod workspace. Twin lounge chairs and a John Keal coffee table for Brown Saltman are symmetrical, composed, and invitingly masculine. The abstract painting beautifully weaves the colours of the space into a cohesive voice, adding texture and dimension.

Roger's office redux at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce marks a departure for the silver fox. Having extricated himself from his marriage, and dabbled in LSD, he's a changed man. Designs embody a hip, modern take, from pop art to chrome and crisp whites.
Shop The Look:
We love the vibrant, dynamic tension of Joan's apartment. All peaches and cream punctuated with bursts of electric turquoise, it reflects the same charisma and style prowess the ever-composed bombshell is known for. Neutral-toned furnishings and organic, natural woods allow colours to pop without becoming melodramatic. The overall aesthetic perfectly echoes the complicated, mercurial tastes of a femme fatale.
Pete and Trudy's Creamsicle-orange starter pad, located at 83rd and Park, is a dream. Sherbert-toned tweeds and decadent creams feel fresh and inviting. The flawlessly executed bookcase is a standout set piece worth emulating.

Don's roost at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce features separate areas to pitch, booze, or even curl up in the fetal position and reflect on life choices. Of course, no Draper workspace would be complete without a fully stocked bar cart and sturdy, masculine furnishings.
Shop The Look:
Megan's virtuosic eye for colour and bohemian way of life takes center stage in her West Coast hideaway. Located in the Hollywood Hills, the cliffside bungalow is home to wild parties, and a revolving door of scene partners and starving artists. The space reflects Megan's open-minded and bold personality. Channel her whimsical joie de vivre with bright, richly textured accessories and natural, burl wood furniture.
Megan's California free-love den is a stark contrast to the couples shared, more refined and edited New York dwelling. The abundance of pattern and colour mirrors her character's willingness to embrace change and adventure. Romantic rosy hues and soft pinks wink to the fact that she relishes her newfound freedom and self-expression out from under Don's thumb.
Primary colours feel confident and expressive in an office setting. We love the use of matching sofas in different shades. The look is bold, clean, and beautifully accented by statement art.
