Peggy Olson's Living Room: Life on Elizabeth Style

Hi guys!  Sorry I haven't checked-in for quite some time.  I've been down for the count with some health issues so I haven't really been able to work on very many projects.  Anyways, while I was taking a little DIY break, Holly from contacted me to see if I was interested in creating a Mad Men inspired room with the Mid Century Modern pieces found on their website.  You bet I took on the challenge!  I love stepping out of my comfort zone and creating rooms that aren't necessarily my "style", but still have key elements that reflect my sense of taste.

For my design challenge, I chose to design Peggy Olson's living room.  When I think about Peggy's style, I think about modest pieces accented with small, interesting details and colors.  I wanted to use a simple color palette and tie in the wood details that were common during those decades.  I also wanted to add the chandelier for a little unexpected bling.

All of the items pictured above can be found at  I want to thank Holly and Chairish for giving me the opportunity to create this room!  What do you guys think?  Who's your favorite character from Mad Men?
