London Calling... by Tiffany Leigh

Hey Loves, Tiffany here again from Tiffany Leigh Interior Design.

With all eyes on London for the Summer Olympics (and Ashleigh busy helping out with the Games) I thought that it might be fun to explore London decor inspiration with two popular British motifs:

1. The Union Jack

The Living Room of fashion design Johnson Hartig (above) is exploding with color, and the Union Jack's bold graphic fits right into this chaotic but beautiful space. In contrast, designer Tommy Smythe's almost entirely neutral living room (below) allows the Union Jack Symbol of the Grand Union Flag to really pop.

2. Keep Calm and Carry On

(I'll admit this poster is everywhere these days, maybe a bit overdone, but I still love it!)

This poster was originally designed to rally the spirits of the British during the onset of WWII. The rhyming slogan is a perfect sentiment, even today! My personal fave is the classic red, but it is available in many colours.

Some may call these London inspirations cliche, but I call them absolutely classic.

Hope you enjoyed and please stop by my blog!
