Among the many reasons to see Revolutionary Road — stellar performances, dark humor, a haunting story — I managed to find another: the stunning interiors inhabited by Frank and April Wheeler (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet). Set in 1955, the movie, much like Mad Men, captures a bygone era with authentic pieces that still look oh-so-stylish.
I found myself coveting just about every chair in the Wheelers' living room, not to mention the adorable accents in their kitchen. The story may be tragic, but the decor is a delight. For my recommendations on how to get the look in your rooms,
Both the formal living room and the more casual sitting area incorporate near-neutral tones with hints of pale color. I love the way everything coordinates but isn't too matchy-matchy; notice how the room above mixes pale and dark woods.
The kitchen is bright and clean, with white walls, blond cabinets, and pale blue pots. But a darker wooden dining table and round-backed chairs add an unexpected studiousness to the space.
