Love It or Hate It? The Drapers' Headboard

Love It or Hate It? The Drapers' Headboard

Whenever there's a scene in Mad Men involving the Drapers' bedroom, my eyes are always drawn to their tufted velvet headboard. Its color, texture, and tufting are over-the-top feminine, and reflect nothing of Don's removed masculinity. But maybe that's the point of this headboard — to reflect how removed Don Draper is from his home and its contents and inhabitants.

I agree with the comment about the beadspread. Not a fan, reminds me of one of thoes old dingy ones in a hotel room that are scratchy and filled with yuck. The headboard on the other hand is pretty neat. I am almost inspired to make one :)

The headboard is nice, but I hate the bedspread. It reminds me of a disgusting hotel bedspread. Everytime I see it I cringe.

iHeart this headboard. It reminds me of a guest room in my parents' home... and the hours I used to play in there, lining up my stuffed animals to play "school."

I've loved that headboard from ep 1. My friend and i were watching the show and both commented on it at the same time. Tho, I could do without the bed spread.
