1-Incorporate a few nice china pieces.
You don’t need to display and use all your fine china set (think of all that washing by hand!)  But use a few pieces from your set for things, such as the sugar bowl, teapot or serving platters.<a href="http://blog prix viagra pharmacie.jacarandaliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/china.png”>Downton Abbey Dining Room - Downton Abbey China - Downton Abbey Dinner - Downton Place Setting - Gold and White China - pressed napkins - linen napkins - embroidered napkins - luxurious napkins

2-Make use of trays
Whether it’s a small silver valet tray, a wooden tray for serving or a large silver platter, using things like this will give that luxurious feel.

While you may not have a large room dedicated to books, consider putting in a bookshelf.  Don’t have many books or want that antique book look?  Use these “book fronts” that look like old time hardcovers.fake book fronts - downton abbey library - downton abbey books - downton abbey decor - decorate your house like downton

No, you don’t need silver, but having a nice flatware set that matches and has a classic look will do the trick!  If you really want to have some silver, seek some out at a consignment shop.  Usually it just needs a good polish to get it looking new.flatware - silverware - downton abbey silverware - downton abbey style silverware - downton abbey flatware - classic flatware - classic silverware
