Ginspiration with Juliette's Interiors

The weekend draws to an end and I have just finished watching season 3 of Mad Men. Slowly catching up with the mischievous Don Draper and the rest of the crew, I am drawn to the series less for the story behind it and more for the interiors - not that this will come as a surprise to any of you. Mad Men is full of mid century eye candy. And it covers an era where entertaining (at home and outside it) was big.

The furniture in the series is not all vintage but the sets are indeed designed to great detail, pleasing mid-century fans like myself. Rich colours (browns, teals and oranges) and warm wood is everywhere you look. Don Draper's Manhattan home is the stuff of mid-century dreams.

Non stop cigarette smoking and martinis for lunch is the norm during the 60s in New York. Even drinking in the office is acceptable - you cannot help but notice how much things have changed since. But going back to my previous point - this era is all about entertaining - clients and friends.

All homes seems to be equipped with a fully stocked mini bar. Less of a "cava" and more of a trolley style arrangement though. The bar cart is big and in 2017 it has a massive come back with a design that raises the bar across all designer savvy homes. Meet the Juniper Drinks Trolley.
