This week I’m taking an in-depth look into the Drawing Room on the set of PBS’s Downton Abbey. Yesterday, I pulled together an authentic antique décor board reflecting the late 1800’s style of the drawing room in Downton Abbey. While beautiful and luxurious, not everyone can afford a room fit for an Earl or Countess. Today, I’ve found furnishings and decorative accents that would suit your inner Earl or Countess without breaking the bank.

In my final installment of discussing Pantone’s Color of the Year, Emerald, I’ve made a mood board that reflects a different side of Emerald: the outdoors. The Northern lights are about as true to the shade as anything else in nature (aside from the gemstone itself!), and are the perfect inspiration for a crisp and cozy feel.

Emerald Mood Board: The Fresh Outdoors
To celebrate Pantone’s Color of the Year, Emerald, I’ve made a décor board that reflects the Art Deco references I spoke of in my previous post. With velvet, silk, crystal and rich tapestries, this board is all about how Emerald can feel luxurious.
