The Mad Men lovers in the Apartment Therapy readership will definitely recognize the man above - actor Bryan Batt plays Salavatore Romano on the ever-popular show. On screen, his character Sal has a red bedroom - in real life, Bryan's room is mellow and quietly glam....

...with a Crate and Barrel bed and Sferra coverlet. Off screen, Bryan is also a designer and home goods shop owner, so in the November issue of House Beautiful, he shares some of his decorating tips, gives sources on how to recreate this look on a budget and some quick quotes on his bedroom, decorating style and bedside beverage of choice:

"Your bedroom either has to be bright and full of life or dark like a cocoon, and I always go for dark. For years, having been in theater, I would go to sleep so late that I had to block out any light coming in so I could sleep in."

"I believe in mixing things. It doesn't always have to be the highest end. If it looks good, it's good."

"I'm a slob! I'm a little bit Oscar Madison, and my partner, Tom Cianfichi, is Felix Ungar. I'm the one who would come to bed with a cigar and a beer. Sometimes I do bring a martini, but there's no smoking allowed in bed."
