If you haven’t seen the British TV show, Downtown Abbey, you must go out immediately and find it. It’s a beautifully done and takes place in an English country home just before WWI. This is the world of rich aristocrats and housemaids. And if you’ve already seen the show, then you’re probably waiting for the next season to come out on DVD.
Unless you’re in the UK, in which, you are watching the second season on TV. And I’m very jealous of you.
Downton Abbey is also the most expensive show made in the UK so every shot is just beautiful. It comes as no surprise that the niece to the creator of the show published “The World of Downton Abbey” in the meantime.
I’ve leafed through the book and have asked for it for Christmas. But here’s a glimpse of some of the amazing photos in the book.

There’s are ebook version for colour readers and a text only version for us e-ink readers. But I really think you need this one printed in full colour.
I remember the first time my parents decided to renovate. We went to Canadian Tire to look at colour swatches for paint. We then spent 30 minutes trying to decide between eggshell and off-white. A month later we had all white walls. I don’t even know which colour they decided on.
But white can be beautiful and interesting. I saw a gorgeous book on how to dress up white in the home called Pale & Interesting. Would also make a great gift for someone who tans waaaay too much (a.k.a. Jersey Shore syndrome).
