If there’s one place to be this year, it’s got to be Britain! With the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics both taking place in 2012, the whole country is going to be in a party mood, celebrating everything that’s great about Britain. With St George’s Day just gone, what better week to look at vamping up your home (and wardrobe) with some fantastic British themed goodies?
Here at Littlewoods, we’ve just launched our Best of British collection: a bundle of beautiful homewares, cool clothes and fantastic accessories all celebrating British icons like the Union Jack, London buses and the Queen herself! We’ve also got a red, white and blue trend if you fancy getting really patriotic.
One of the key designers in our Best of British collection is Graham & Brown, the iconic wallpaper and home furnishing design house. Their funky printed canvas wall art will brighten up any room and is sure to give you some patriotic spirit. The tongue-in-cheek Graham & Brown I Rule This House Canvas is ideal for your favourite matriarch – we think even Queenie herself might have one hung up in the Royal living room! The quirky Graham & Brown London Cartoon Canvas would be perfect for a child’s room, or maybe a creative office space. We also really like the Graham & Brown Stamps Canvas, which takes the classic stamp and reimagines it with a series of pretty floral prints.
If you’re looking to decorate other parts of your house, then the Sabichi Best of British 5-piece Textile Set is a beautiful addition to your kitchen. Comprising of an apron, oven gloves and a set of three patriotic tea towels, this red, white and blue set is a cheerful addition to any home. Or how about a patriotic yet practical gift? The cute London 2012 Union Jack Keyring and Pen Set makes a lovely present when combined with the girly Union Jack Journal and Address Book.
Finally, don’t forget to proudly display your patriotism this year with some gorgeous on-trend pieces that really are the best of British. The cute South Bulldog Print Tee, with Union Jack glitter print, can be dressed up or down: pair with skinny jeans and platforms for a great evening look. We also really like the adidas Originals Mens Team GB Bag in red, white and blue: roomy and comfortable, this makes a cool everyday bag for carting round your stuff. If you fancy showing your patriotism a little more subtly, then the Cath Kidston London Charm Bracelet is ideal. Featuring gorgeous enamelled charms, including a London bus, crown and Union Jack heart, this is a pretty way to be part of the best of British season!
Make sure you have a look at the rest of our Best of British collection, which includes great toys for the kids, men’s shorts, women’s t-shirts and even more homewares.
