To create the Downton Abbey look I compared the footage with stills from the actual show. Production design helped a lot on this. One of the main things to watch for when trying to match a certain look is to watch skin tones. Sometimes you can't get a real idea of the tone in a space if you don't have enough angles represented in the sample stills. But recognizing the look through how skin tones are being handled always works.
