    I just want to thank everyone for inviting me into their beautiful living rooms. It was such an honor. And so many neat and interesting designs and ideas. That’s what makes Pam and Kate’s website the best because they encourage us all to do our own thing, safely of course. Thanks Pam and Kate for all you do in giving us so much wonderful info and for having a website that encourages such a positive community of MCM folks. You’re the best! Lori T.

    Wow, wow, wow! I love SO MANY rooms!

    A few special mentions: I love the 1957 light up starburst – that is so cool and I personally have never seen one like it!

    Also the china cabinet with the yellow flowered dishes with the yellow flower painting next to it is so much fun! So cheerful. Yellow doesn’t seem to get the appreciation it deserves yet.

    The sofa in the 1956 Minneapolis Rambler (Nick and Amy Larsen)- just about the coolest thing ever and cute little doggie too!

    I keep coming back for the new ones. Labors of love, for sure. The absolute stunners for me are Joe and Brian’s, April’s, and Christy’s Wow, wow, wow, you guys. Fantastic.

    They are my prized possessions. A friend who runs a vintage shop out in the sticks—but did NOT watch Mad Men at the time–posted them for sale literally ONE WEEK after Don’s new apartment premiered. I nearly had a heart attack before getting hold of her to buy them. LOL. Thank you about the kitchen. I had to wait 12 years for those floors and they do my heart good.

  7. April says:

    I keep coming back to make sure I haven’t missed anything! So many lovely rooms with so much inspiration. Thanks everyone for posting, and thanks Pam and Kate!!!

    This is like a walk through my childhood. I see so many things that were in my parents or friend’s parents homes.

    Interest all are MCM though. Thought we might see some other eras.

  9. Ali says:

    I have kids, but they aren’t babies anymore, and I don’t let them play in my living room. The rooms they use are not as vintage.

    Love seeing other people’s spaces. Such a great surprise to see those 2 red Milo Baughman 989’s in one livingroom as I have one in orange 🙂

    I finally found the added photo. Over the top, mouth-dropping beauty. The flying panels over the living area, so bold, so soft; is that a loft space? Every time i look, there’s more to see.

    I think you are referring to my living room. I have that pair of the pull-up size, one was originally orange plush fake fur, and the other was recovered in a traditional late 1980s fabric, and I have one in the larger lounge chair size that I was so happy to find in a matching orange fake fur that I bought it on eBay not realizing it was a different size.

    The sofa is Brickell, I believe, 1970; the stools are Paul Mccobb; the lamps are Mauricio Tempestini through Laurel Lamp Co; the dining chairs are Nakashima through Knoll; the Chinese Chippendale chair is 1970s, part of a set that was hand painted by a decorator in LA. So a lot of the furniture is on the late side of Modernism. There are 6 dozen + modernist candlesticks on the chest-on-stretcher

    Wow, looking at these neat living rooms definetly made me feel like a kid again. I just love the lamp in pic 17 and the colors of the living room in 209 – 210. Thanks for sharing.
