English-Inspired Interiors

If you follow me on Twitter, I'm sure you're aware that I'm a huge fan of the period drama Downton Abbey. My love for English country houses isn't restricted to the fictional—I'm currently working on my senior seminar for my history major, where I'm studying the fall of the British aristocracy.

During my semester abroad, I had the chance to visit many a country manor, such as Blenheim Palace and Waddesdon Manor. While living in such an environment isn't very realistic anymore, I can't help but love the elegance and extravagance of these houses. And that's why I love Lee Stanton's Laguna Beach, Calif. home, featured on Architectural Digest's website. Gorgeous artwork hangs on the walls, giving this Southern California home the feel of an ancestral home. I love the deep wood, formal furniture, and endless details.

The classic English manor house is brought to the modern era—what do you think?
