ADDING A LOOK OF ANTIQUITY

 
We're seeing a resurgence of Edwardian and pre-1920 styles over the last few seasons.  Could this perchance be due to the popularity of the BBC Series, Downton Abby?  Or Hotel Grand?  Both series are British and set in WWI England, a time synonymous with lace, silk and jewelry in pewter and gold.  Below are just a few ideas to inspire you on to creating a romantic early 20th Century look . . . .
