Once again, London is calling. Having celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee and now the London 2012 Summer Olympics which are scheduled from July 27 to August 12 in the United Kingdom, Britain is taking center stage.
In celebration of these events, ABC News anchor Katie Couric hosted a 2-hour television special that featured an interview with some of the member of the Royal Family. She even had the opportunity to curtsy before the Queen herself. It is no wonder that so many retailers are working at a fever pitch to present a bevy of trend-right fashions inspired by England’s uber recognizable flag motif, the Union Jack.
Why should the clothing industry have all the fun when there are so many chic British inspired home fashions to be found?
This post features a bevy of British inspired home fashions. Why not add a decorative pillow, picture frame, throw cover or a comfortable foot stool to your room for just the right touch. Or, have blueberry scones with a spot of Earl Grey Black tea in a beefy flag motif mug or fine china tea set at 4pm. But most of all, keep calm and carry on. Let the games begin.
