Downton Abbey makes me want to...
-Create a library in my house complete with red velvet furniture.
-Re-stage my wedding wearing an Edwardian style gown or an authentic vintage gown from Xtabay's new bridal salon.
-Buy Edwardian wreath motif jewelry from Lang Estate Jewelry In San Francisco or Portland's own Margulis or Gilt.
-Start a collection of sterling silver or silver plate serving pieces. I'd buy them from Replacements or the Antique Cupboard.
If you're not watching Downton Abbey yet, Season 1 is available streaming on Netflix and Season 2 is airing now on PBS (plus watch Season 2 episodes online).
