London is a creative city where contemporary architecture and historical monuments live side by side with class. This elegant trend combined with the appeal of the Union Jack is making its way back into interior decorating. Why not follow this trend!
Here is how to introduce a touch of Britain into your decor with a few steps.
Draw your inspiration from London’s urban landscape; turn new into vintage or vintage into new. Dare to mix styles and textures but, for a well-matched decor, explore one single theme. That’s the key to a successfully vibrant, current and elegant British decor.
Be bold when creating your London decor using Union Jack colours as inspiration for painting your walls. To perfect the look, use these, or similar, colours:
Use Natural White as a base to paint the ceiling and a few walls. A coat of Nautica Blue on another wall will add intensity. Then tie it all together by introducing Fire Station Red accessories such as curtains, cushions or a carpet. You can also choose to paint some walls Fire Station Red and complete the look with blue accessories.

Choose curtains, cushions, indoor carpets and occasional chairs to brighten the room and enhance your British atmosphere.

Lastly, energize your decor with prints showing off London’s busy urban lifestyle.
