Downton Abbey is a British period drama television series created by Julian Fellowes and co-produced by Carnival Films and Masterpiece.

Since the show’s airing, millions of people have been inspired and have fallen in love with the storyline and the several characters of the show. The grand Highclere Castle, period clothing and house decor have inspired interior designers to write blogs about how the show has inspired them; Pinterest users are pinning Dowton Abbey boards; and culinary historians are writing cookbooks and blogs with recipes containing a lot less fat like the food served during the Edwardian period.
We have been inspired by the show and love the house, decor and flooring. When watching Downton Abbey, as the camera moves through Highclere Castle, you can see wood flooring and gorgeous rugs tthroughout. When viewing the remarkable state rooms, it’s hard not to notice the old rugs, the patterns and colors.
We have created our own Pinterest board dedicated to Downton Abbey, please take a look and pin with us.
