The Butler’s Pantry

 

Very few of us have a butler.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have Carson the butler from the hit drama Downton Abbey at your beckon call?

One can only imagine the possibilities of elegant entertaining with a staff like this!  A butler, footmen, valets, cooks, scullery maids and of course a lady’s maid.  One can dream!

Even if you don’t have a country estate replete with a army of servants, the modern day “butler’s pantry” is still an ideal addition to any home.  Today I thought we’d take a look at a few examples that would even make Carson the butler feel at home.

What a wonderful idea!  A “butler’s window” in a swinging door between the dining room and the butler’s pantry.
