Our favorite British family is back! With the return of the ever-so-soapy drama to American shores, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the lush interiors and Edwardian-style embellishments that make Highclere Castle (the real Downton Abbey) such a lavish setting for the unfolding drama of the Grantham family and their servants. This month, we’re mad for period pieces—crystal drop chandeliers, decadent floral wallpapers, velvet tufted chairs, tapered ceilings, oversized windows and tassels galore, oh my! Here are our favorite Downton-inspired decor picks that make us want to recline in our chaise and ask, “What is a weekend?”
Romance through the ages.
