Living in the Past, in the Present

I've had a bit of a British week and indulged in marathon sessions of Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs. Both cover pre-war Britain before the first and second world wars respectively. I've always loved those eras and the interior design and fashion that go along with them. It's incredibly elegant, with the occasional hints of playful whimsy. I can't get enough of it and am happy to announce both will return for season 2 in 2012.
