The Elegance of Downton Abbey in your Home


I have been inspired by an article I read yesterday stating that there was going to be a line of clothing offered based on the lovely historic wardrobe from the wildly popular PBS series Downton Abbey.  While the large and formal elements of the country estate are fantastic, they must be scaled down for our humble abodes, but I would love to create a series of window treatments in sumptuous fabrics that would bring any home up a notch and give you a graceful and inviting space to relax in during those cold snowy winter days.

Now, one must take care using bold and sumptuous fabrics to use a discriminating hand.  We do not want our living rooms to look like a bordello after all.  The key is to use subtle and understated styles in lovely fabrics and matching throw pillows to accents to tie it all together nicely…
