It was an era of social and political change, revolutionary fashion and stylish interior design. The late 1950s and early 60s paved the way for simple styling and the popular American drama, Mad Men spurred on a new take of the era, reinvigorating the retro/vintage trend in a big way.

Hotondo Homes’ Byron display home has been decked out in a sleek retro style with a contemporary interpretation.  The home’s interior is reminiscent of the trendy Manhattan offices of the ‘Mad Men’ advertising executives.
