How to Give Your Home the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Treatment

Feast your eyes upon these mid-century interior essentials!

September 20, 2018

Have you hopped onboard The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel train yet? The Amazon series swept the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards with five wins including Best Comedy Series, and even picked up a couple of Golden Globes awards earlier this year. Set in 1950's Manhattan, the series follows housewife Miriam “Midge” Maisel and her quest to become a comedian after a series of life-altering events. The show has caught the eyes of decor lovers with its retro details and vivid tints of the olden days.

If you’re looking to sprinkle some marvelous inspiration into your home, here are some similar ‘50s pieces we’ve found to fulfill your technicolor dreams.
