Pin it button big

Apart from being an interesting and insightful breakdown of the most recent episode of Mad Men that has the decor set in a dizzy tizzy, former Domino magazine executive editor Kate Bolick notes:

"...we are locked in constant battle with our own stuff, hating ourselves for possessing so much of it, as if the objects we’ve bought somehow snuck into our homes by nefarious means..."

"There’s a song called “Taste,” by the very 21st-century band Animal Collective, that captures this fearful ambivalence with a single, plaintive refrain: Am I really all the things that are outside of me? Would I complete myself without the things I like around?"

Read the rest of Kate Bolick's The Fainting Couch for Best Supporting Actor and get ready for more insightful observations about our favourite TV series, alongside commentary about the decor landscape of the era (and the present).
