Until I encounter the French grain sack original, my new Downton Village stand-in will do the job.
I thought I would like a few more cushions with graphics on the sofa, but for now this is as much pattern as I want. A little goes a long way.
I like this space without too many distractions. Usually with just a few necessary items close at hand on the table.
It's a reading room by day, and for watching the real Downton Abbey at night. . . .
There is ticking on the reverse of the pillow, and I may add some more of that. A stripe is a little less busy, and I like the old farmhouse feel.
The old French armchair has stayed in this room since the holidays and I had to try the new pillow out on it too!
I think the Dowager Countess from Downton sits on a similar chair in her study. I tossed a vintage cloth with a net lace hem over the seat for the photo. One of my more recent finds.
A couple of wicker covered wine jugs add to the country farmhouse illusion. The graphic behind the twig wreath is another Jeanne D'Arc Living paper design. I got both the paper and the Downton Pillow here at Vintage Market & Design.
Welcome to March!
Hope it's a great new week for you!
