Primetime Style

By: Kate Donnelly

The arrival of fall means the much-awaited return of our favorite TV shows. While you might be watching the drama unfold, we have our eyes on the background. Set design is a fascinating field for designers to draw inspiration from. The spaces our favorite characters occupy can tell us a lot about their personalities, and it’s easy to implement some of these styles into your own home.

The award-winning set designs of Mad Men reflect the modern mid-century style, which was all the rage circa 1969 (and still is in 2014!). This style is defined by wood veneers, warm colors, and clean modern lines. The penthouse Don shares with his wife Megan reflects this perfectly. Here are some pieces to help you channel your inner Don Draper:Madmen

We can’t get enough of  The Mindy Project, and especially Dr. Mindy Lahiri’s bold, flirty, and feminine style. Her personality is perfectly reflected in the style of her apartment: cheerful and light with pops of bright happy colors. From colorful chandeliers to boldly printed chairs, Mindy’s style is as fun to watch as her character. Bring some Mindy into your world with the following looks:

On Scandal, the style of Olivia Pope’s wardrobe is directly reflected in her apartment. She prefers subtle neutral tones, rich textures, and understated elegance. The beautiful muted tones in her living room are accentuated with the occasional pop of blue. Want to bring some of Miss Pope’s decor into your own home? Consider it handled. Here are our top picks:
