As I was looking up pictures of the set this one really caught my eye. If you are at all familiar with Piet Mondrian's work you can easily spot similarities. In a large selection of his artwork he focuses on using only primary colors and bold simple lines in his compositions. This classic combination of red, blue and yellow is seen everywhere from advertisements to IKEA furniture (and even the set of Mad Men!)

It took me awhile to get into the show because, to be honest, it's quite a slow start. But with how many awards Mad Men has won it is now apparent to me why the completely deserve it. If you watch you'll definitely appreciate the painstakingly details put into every aspect of the show's design.
