New color trend: Mad Men

Mid-Century Modern as a Rising Color Trend

“Mad Men” is another rising interior design color trend identified by the designers at Norwalk Furniture.  Often referred to as Mid-Century Modern, here is Norwalk’s description of this trend that will be expressed in both colors and fabrics:

mad-menIs there any doubt that with movie and television shows like The Wonder Years, The Green Hornet, Catch Me if You Can, and Mad Men all grabbing critical acclaim, that our nostalgia for the past, or as we at Norwalk like to say “nostalgia for the future”, is in full blossom? Not unsurprisingly during challenging times, our yearning for a simpler or better time in the past creeps into the collected conscious.
Picking up on a positive upbeat reflection of the past, our Mad Men theme emphasis is a lively and colorful mix of “fun” accent fabrics and bright, cheerful cost-conscious base clothes. Aqua to teal blues, reds with a decidedly pink cast, oranges in fruity flavors, and punchy lime greens all mix in an exuberant and happy blend. Mad Men is sure to enliven many a family room, sun room, or second home with its nostalgic color palette and upbeat attitude.
