Get the Look of Downton Abbey: Behind the Scenes of Highclere Castle’s Grand Decor

Downton Abbey is back again, and we couldn’t be happier to watch the glamorous British bunch for another season. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at some of the most stunning rooms featured on the series & how to get the look.

THE DOWNTON ABBEY SALOON

The saloon is one of the most architecturally grand rooms in Highclere Castle, where most of Downton Abbey is filmed. The gothic style decor is accented by wall covering panels made of leather that date back to 1631, but you can get a more modernized look with a deeply-hued damask wallpaper.

THE DOWNTON ABBEY STUDYThe study is where we often see Lord Grantham mulling over his estate’s future. The gorgeous wood panels and inset shelving are adorned with a vast collection of leatherbound books. If you want to recreate this look without installing ornate paneling, you can use a trompe l’oeil wallpaper that looks like bookshelves. Rich velvet and silk textures provide a softer contrast to the masculine room.

THE DOWNTON ABBEY MUSIC ROOMWe saw the music room last season when the family held events, and we hope we can see more because those walls hung with 16th century Italian embroideries are to die for! The ornate architectural carvings can be recreated with a trompe l’oeil freize wallpaper–some of them are printed to look 3D and others are actually raised and paintable.

THE DOWNTON ABBEY DRAWING ROOM

The drawing room is one of our favorite spaces from the show—its pastel color palette brings an airy quality to the castle. We’re loving the combination of mint damask wallpaper,dusty pink chairs in a similar pattern and a quietly elegant area rug.
