I cannot pretend that AMC’s “Mad Men” has not affected my style, and I know I am not alone. The sleek, put-together look of 1960s New York seems to have seduced us all, with its tufted headboards and colorful tweed ladies’ suits. But the trick with any vintage look is to give it a modern twist.
Macy’s is making that easy for us with its semi-annual home sale. You have one week left to snap up an updated nod to the past in the “Chloe” couch in seafoam at $699, down from $899.
Z Gallery has marked down window panels that will give your bedroom a low key, mid-century flare.
