What to Decorate: Downton Abbey

What to Decorate: Downton Abbey

Episode four of Downton Abbey features a 10 second scene in a London house that I absolutely love. The sitting room (closer look, or 39 minutes in) is done entirely in slate blue, mustard and gold.

It’s a muted color scheme that we almost achieve in our apartment. I need to buy some mustard pillows and a blue throw STAT! Here’s how to make a modern room inspired by the show (clockwise):

Mirrors – Bird’s eye mirror set, not available for purchase

Chair – This lovely chair is an antique.
Pillow – From West Elm for $24.
Rug – I would never pay this much for an ivory rug…but regardless.
Couch – A pretty good looking gray velvet sofa for $1,000.
Curtains – No source, but the color is just right.
Frame – I love how delicate these vintage Italian mosaic frames look.
Bust – A French marble bust of a child.
Votives – Mercury glass hurricanes have an antique look.
Flowers – Grape hyacinth in modern steel containers from New York.
