Downton Abbey Design – Part 1


So many people love watching the PBS series Downton Abbey, not only for the story line, but also because the fashions and home styling evoke an era of grandeur. So how might we capture some of that elegance in our modern-day homes? Well, you could buy it–the show’s producers now have about 250 pieces of furniture and accessories available for sale. Or you could add some special touches to a room to bring about that feeling of an English estate.
