There is nothing quite like the contemporary style of understated monotone settings with splashes of bright red London icons when it comes to giving your home some city chic. The famous red London buses and the vibrancy of the Union Jack can be found emblazoned on everything from cushions to duvet covers. So why not jazz up your home decor with some trendy textiles from London. After all, a Union Jack theme truly does create a classic British interior design. Whether you want to display your British heritage with pride, or if you love the capital from afar and wish to incorporate a constant reminder of it in your home, here are ten hot items that will help you to achieve the London look:
We love this chair with it's funky London street design and what's more it folds out into a comfy bed, made with a foam mattress.
It's true, all you need is an eye-catching London canvas to be the main feature of your living room or bedroom wall and you are already more than halfway to getting some serious city style in your home.
Cushion covers make a cheap and easy way of adding to or changing the current theme for your room. Use them on your sofas, chairs or on your bed to create a lavish look. We love these cushions that feature London guards, Double Decker buses and all our other favourite icons of the city.
Bed linen designed with high quality photographic printing will look absolutely stunning in any bedroom.
Wall stickers are an inexpensive way to add a desired theme to any room, whether it is at the office or at home in a kitchen, child's bedroom or anywhere else for that matter, they simply give stunning results everytime. They are easy to apply but have a really effective look, which can easily be removed from the wall when necessary.
