Classic'60s style is making a comeback, thanks in part to the popularity of the Mad Men television series. If you're falling for Don Draper's sofa or bedroom set, there are some easy ways you can get the same look in your own home, says decorating expert and blogger Susanna Salk.
Start by browsing any of the design blogs, including CasaSugar, PointClickHome and Shine, that describe the decorations on the Mad Men set. Print out pictures of the ones you love, advises Susanna, and take them with you when you're shopping. Even if you don't find the exact piece, sometimes you can find something in a similar shade or shape that will give your room the same feel.
Search local yard sales, flea markets and antiques shops for vintage furniture and accessories. Or, if you prefer new pieces with a '60s feel, here are a few of Susanna's favorites. Clockwise from top left:
