Adding a touch of British interior design into your home is a great way to make a style statement.
Typically and probably the best way to introduce "cool Britannia" into your British interior design concept, is to incorporate the flag, 'the Union Jack' into your design.
British interiors at home work when elements are added sparingly. For example, lets say you incorporated the above mural onto a wall in your home, then that would be enough. More than enough of a wow! -therefore, the rest of the decor would have to be pretty neutral to make it work.
The simplest way to get a touch of cool Britannia, is to look for a few really great scatter cushions. That way there is a suggestion of this concept.
Color: RED, WHITE and BLUE of course however, please do not literally cover your home in only those colors. Look for interesting ways to introduce them.
When I lived in Dubai, I had one union jack cushion that sat on my sofa, in the living room which you can see in the photo to the right.
I have to say, I really loved it sitting there on show. There is nothing quite like being away from home to bring out your patriotism!
Today, it sits on my bed.
The image below is a great example of a vintage touch of patriotism using big, bold items. Observe the color palette here and note how harmonious each interacts within the space. Overall this dining space could also be used for study and for business meetings.
Again, I've added a vintage shot to show you how grand gestures like the tennis rackets can be a wonderful and unique way to style a room. This living room is quirky however it remains formal and has been designed with sophistication accordling to the dynamics of what this space can hold.
Another great way to get with this concept, is to create a funky bedroom. The easiest route is choose a fantastic UK styled bed throw or quilt cover for your bedroom similar to that which you can see in the below, left image or add a rug similar to the example shown in the below, right teen bedroom. I am sure the teen occupant loves their super cool refrigerator! What a great and fun addition that is.
The bedroom below is off the scale in design. Look at how the room has be utilized to max the space available. Uber cool bedroom. The hard finishes are perfectly balanced out with the addition of the giant sized, soft flowing British flag bed throw.
