Since the royal wedding celebrations last year, England has reveled in anything and everything patriotic. Quintessential British design has cropped up in homes across the UK and whether it’s a line of bunting, a plaid tablecloth or even a royal wedding inspired tea set, we all have gone mad for the Jack Union Decor style.
Take a look at these ideas to get your home looking righteously royal.
For the bedroom
The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house so give it a touch of royal treatment with a king-size bed and a designer bedside table. Floral prints add a touch of English charm and a fresh vase of English roses will finish the look off effortlessly. White lace and frills are also a great addition to add that picture perfect English feel to any room.
For the Kitchen
Light pine or white washed units seem to epitomize English kitchen design and no truly English kitchen is complete without a dresser to host an impressive collection of china. Gingham print is also ideal for the kitchen; you can get curtains, table clothes and crockery for gingham galore! Try mixing colors to add a splash of fun but keep it elegant and classy rather than trashy. Pick up nik-naks locally, you can collect straw weaved baskets from any good farmers market and use them for decorative storage or simply to show off your veg.
For the lounge
Add a touch of eccentricity to your lounge with some union jack inspired accessories. If you’re not keen on going the whole hog with a union jack inspired throne chair then you can tone it down by adding a few symbol cushions or a red, blue and white rug. There’s also a great range of fun decorations that can be picked up to add to the theme. Try a road sign inspired plaque of one of London’s most famous destinations to pay homage to the capital or hang a traditional oil painting to celebrate the English country landscape. A ‘chesterfield sofa’ is the ultimate addition for any British style lounge and it looks particularly great in a room with an exposed brick and a book shelf full of great British novels.
If all else fails you can always stick to a picture of the infamous ‘keep calm and carry on’ quote on the mantelpiece.

Have you acquired anything related with the Union Jack decor? You guys know I’m not the kind of designer that lives for trends, I much prefer a timeless room than a trendy one, but I think you can have fun and add some color with this new trend. I especially like it mixed with traditional pieces, like a pillow on a chair, or in kids’ rooms.
We’re having a chilly day and I just had the idea of buying some fresh croissants. Do you know those days you wish you could curl up with a good book and forget about the time? I’m missing having a day like that, and it would be even better with a croissant and a nice cup of coffee.
Take some time to celebrate yourself today!
