So, what did you think of the two-hour premiere of Mad Men season 6? Truthfully, I found the episode to be a bit anticlimactic. And while I was surprised by what was revealed in the penultimate scene, I was more disappointed than excited by this new plot twist. (Can you tell I’m trying to remain cryptic for those who haven’t watched it yet?)

Even when a particular episode of feels rather dull (as this one kind of did), I am always interested in Mad Men‘s costumes and set design. Since season 5 ended mid-1967 and season 6 picked up at the end of that year, I wasn’t expecting to see any drastic differences in fashion and decor. Actually, it was the men (or some of them) who boasted the most noticeable differences: sideburns, shaggy hair, facial hair, more colorful clothing.
As for the decor, I didn’t notice any major updates, did you?
House Beautiful shared a fun round-up of vintage photos from their magazine, and I love how many of the 1960s living rooms could pass for modern-day rooms with just a few small tweaks. I love the teal sofas and octagonal tables in the top left image, the wall shelves in the top right image, the wall of windows in the bottom left image, and the gallery wall in the bottom right image.
