Get the Look: Revolutionary Road

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.

I go back and forth on my feelings towards midcentury modern, but somehow those screenshots really appeal to me. And I like how your product choices capture the style without being overly "retro".

aimeeb: I definitely understand how this would look bland to most people but I love the simpleness of the 50s style decorating
