Mad Men’s Joan Holloway Inspiration: Claret Rose

Joan is one of (in my personal views) the best characters to appear on Mad Men. Joan is powerful yet soft, and her living area is painted to match. The Benjamin Moore colour Claret Rose is very close to the red in her home and adds a touch of ‘Joan’ to any space.

Looking For A Fresh Look In Your Living Or Dining Room?

It’s not hard to use bright colours in a traditional space.  Use a pillow or piece of furniture for inspiration. The contrast of the green/blue against the heat of the coral under-toned orange; really create a fresh summer look. You can then leave the walls a nice calming neutral, especially in the cream family.

For this look try:

1.  HC-138 “Covington Blue” by Benjamin Moore.

2. 2170-30 “Autumn Cover” by Benjamin Moore.

3. OC-10 “White Sand” by Benjamin Moore.
