Two Glimpses Behind the Sumptuous Sets of 'Downton Abbey'

By November 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Architectural Digest has become one of my favorite sites for exploring great television sets, and in this piece, they tackle a doozy, with a sighworthy tour of the sumptuous, gorgeous interiors of the hit TV show "Downton Abbey." The piece justifiably puts Downton Abbey (Highclere Castle in real life) among the ranks of fiction's great houses, and as any viewer of the show already knows, there's no arguing with that, as the grand house is every bit as much a character as any human being on the show. Check out the actual slide show from AD here.

If you can't get enough of tidbits about the design behind the "Downton" production, there are even more treasures to be found over at the SDSA (Set Decorators Society of America), where you'll find a fascinating interview with British based SDSA Set Decorator member Judy Farr (My Week with Marilyn, The King's Speech), who discusses her Emmy-nominated set decor inspirations on the show's second season, as well.

Of course, once you're done with your virtual tours of the divine 'Downton,' don't forget to pour yourself a nice, genteel cup of tea -- in your very best china, of course!
