Upstairs, Downstairs


Months ago, while I was probably being yelled at by an Italian bus driver, you were all cozying up watch 'Upstairs, Downstairs.'  I, unfortunately, have just seen it and all I can think about are the amazing interiors.  I nearly fern greened myself when I saw that gorgeous fern green sitting room.  And the tile floor in the hall?  I needn't say more.  I'm sure this is old news to all of you, but I really hope they continue, even if it's just to see what else production designer Eve Stewart concocts.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I've yet to see Upstairs Downstairs but my interest is doubly piqued after this post. Also, LOVE the new title image on your blog!

Have you seen the 1970's version? We just picked it up but haven't seen it yet, and are curious to see how it compares to the new version. Visually, the 2010 series was STUNNING, no? But I felt that some of the plots were shallow and characters undeveloped. Will report back soon!

I still haven't seen this. I'm just dying to see it - I heard the production was amazing!! And I agree with W.E. - your new header image is just sublime!
