the clothes & jewels of Downton Abbey

Here's an up close and personal look at
the exquisite details that are
featured in the costumes  of Downton Abbey.

Costume designer Caroline McCall really stays true
to the era portrayed on the series.
The characters have gone from
the styles of 1912 to the now current episodes
 in the fabulous jazz age of the 1920's.

Glamour magazine interviewed McCall,
and you can enjoy Downton Abbey 
behind-the-scene photos here.

new orleans, charleston and parisian style

There is a common thread between New Orleans, Charleston and Parisian style decor. Each city brings a sense of history and drama. Interiors that use pieces that are passed down through generations, pieces that are acquired from flea markets, or misfits that are somehow integrated into the scheme of things. 

And with all these pieces there are stories to tell. Some of my favorite rooms have visibly worn pieces that bring character to a room and are paired with more modern furnishings and accessories.
