Silver Spring Mad Men

This weekend, the Washington Post revealed the winners of its AMC Mad Men contest, and the home in the top spot certainly did not dissappoint. The 1953 charmer was largely untouched when an MCM loving family, Melissa Talley, Christopher Naughten, and their son, Patrick, bought it in 2007 and filled it with their collection of yard sale, auction, and dumpster-diving treasures.

The Post describes the family's union with the home as a home-coming of sorts. They had loved original mid-century pieces forever, and had been collecting modern family hand-me-downs and estate sale gems for years— as well as enlisting their now 23 year old son, Patrick, for the occassional treasure trash pick. When they found the perfectly intact mid-century house, they already had the perfect time capsule pieces. Melissa told the Post it was " like sea monkeys -- add water and, boom, we've got the whole environment." .
