Rule Britannia – four ways to bring Brit Chic to your interiors

We all know that Britain rules in the interior design stakes and at Style Studio we're proud of our British heritage; many of our blinds are manufactured and retailed exclusively in the UK.  So, as the Queen's 90th  birthday celebrations get underway this weekend, we're taking a look at the best ways to bring a patriotic feel to your home.

See The Capital from your window (even when the blinds are closed)

Tourists travel for thousands of miles to take in the sights of our illustrious capital and it's pretty tough to rival the unmistakable panorama of the big smoke's skyline - so why not introduce the view into your home all year round with our London Cityscape design?

Introduce a statement piece of furniture to your home

Created as part of the BT Artbox project, Benjamin Shine reinvented the classic red telephone box by flipping it on its side, cutting it into a sofa shape, and adding matching red upholstery.

A one-off masterpiece such as this would almost certainly be out of price range for most UK homeowners, but investing in one unusual piece of art or furniture, or customising existing furniture, can create a focal point in the room and introduce a theme without looking tacky. Here are some fun ideas from our design team.

Troop the colour

There's no need to worry about your colours clashing when you're using the UK's flag for inspiration - red, white and blue always look great together!  We've got some really dramatic and vibrant colours in our made-to-measure blinds collection - such as these Azure blue or Raspberry red Infusion asc pleated blinds - or why not choose a striped roller blind that incorporates all three!

 Fly the Flag

There's something so effortlessly cool about the design of the Union Jack, especially when it's used in interiors.  It's a bold and stylish look for a teenager's room and looks fantastic when offset with shabby chic styling. Little touches can go a long way in interior design and by introducing home accessories depicting the GB flag - on artwork, bedspreads or scatter cushions throughout a room - homeowners can get the look without breaking the bank.
