News & Inspiration

Written by Mikaela

You may have noticed that all things British are hot property in design at the moment. There are good reasons for this: the combination of rich history and exciting future – London’s Olympic Games this year and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, for instance – makes Britain in general, and London in particular, the place everyone wants to be at the moment.

Rather than uprooting your family to the UK, it’s easy to bring stylish British accents into your home. Have a look at the image collage below for some of my personal favourites like the British Isles Print by Bold and Noble and the London Underground Shower Curtain by Izola. There are even a couple of super-hip online boutiques specialising in British style, such as SE10 Gallery and Lark.
