Downton Abbey Decor Style

Written by

Downton Abbey on PBS has formed quite the fol­lowing since it’s first episode in 2010.  It is not just the plot twists, back­stab­bing, gossip and society expec­ta­tions of the time that keep us intrigued each season — it is the fashion and decor!


Classic. Tra­di­tional. Neo­clas­sical.  Vic­to­rian infused Eng­lish Manor Homes set the time and scene of this soap-​​opera style drama.  Pre­cise place­ments of each piece of fur­ni­ture with lay­ered rich colors upon tex­tures upon tex­tures.  Carved mould­ings on walls, ceil­ings and fur­nish­ings add intri­cate detail to every item making it spe­cial and lux­u­rious.  Plush fab­rics uphol­ster the chairs, set­tees and drape the large scale win­dows.  The only thing simple is the Butler’s uniform.
