Only a few more days until ‘Mad Men’ returns to the air. You can now vote for your favorite finalist in the Washington Post ‘s second ‘Mad Men’ Look contest. The winner will be revealed Monday, March 26, the day after the two-hour season premiere of the show. Want to learn more about mid-century style? Two of the Post’s judges for the contest will host a live discussion at noon tomorrow (March 22) about interior design and the ‘Mad Men’ Look.

Spring is in the air (as it has been for much of this winter) and the Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour is fast approaching. The biennial tour will be held rain or shine on April 28. Organizers tell me tickets are selling fast and are limited in number, so don’t miss out on your chance to see the homes and gardens of the award-winning modernist community south of Alexandria designed by visionary architect Charles Goodman. For information and to purchase tickets before price increases on April 15, click here. You can also like the Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour page on Facebook or get news about the event on Twitter.
Also, stayed turned for more details on an event I will be moderating at Design Within Reach in Georgetown on Thursday, April 12. The event will explore the influence of Goodman on local residential architecture here in the DC area.

The last day to enter the Washington Post ‘s second ‘Mad Men’ Look contest is Monday, March 12, so make sure to submit photos of your D.C.-area mid-century modern digs. Judges will pick the finalists and then readers get to choose the winner, who will have their abode featured online and in the paper. (Here is the article from last time; my wife and I came in second place. Above is a shot from our living room.) Good luck to all those who enter. And thankfully, only two weeks left until the show returns to the airwaves with a two-hour premier.
