Taking a vintage nod, here are our favorite at-home accessories and décor found this week:

'Mad Men' Says Aloha to Hawaii for Season 6

Spoiler alert! 'Mad Men' is going tropical for Season 6 when Don Draper and his wife Megan, aka Jon Hamm and Jessica Pare take Hawaii. Brady Bunch did it. Full House did it. And, yes, that’s right, “Mad Men” is participating in the long TV tradition of a Hawaiian vacation.

Based on a series of pictures posted on Daily Mail, the characters of Don and Megan Draper look to be enjoying their time in The Aloha State, drinking tropical drinks and reading “The Inferno” on the beach. They are both wearing brightly-printed, retro swimsuits in the photos.
