in consequence of the missive, Longbourn House vs. Lucas Lodge in P&P2, penned by Vania
The Drawing Room at Longbourn was pale and simple to show that the Bennets are a not pretentious family.
Lucas Lodge was given regal overtones with reds and golds which accentuate the family's social aspirations and echo Sir William's constant references to the Court of St. James.
Pemberley in contrast had to be in exquisite taste. Although it was to be the grandest home they wanted to show a natural elegance. Showing that Darcy's family has been "secure in it's place at the top of the social hierarchy for many generations".
