Rule Britannia

Union Jacks have been popping up everywhere over the last few years with thanks to designers like Viviene Westwood with her Union Jack rugs and cushions.

Here are some examples which I like...

What do you think? Like or loathe?

I hope you're having a great day, the sun has just come out here - perfect for our new plants which went in over the weekend and will be loving this rain! I'll post pics next week when we've finished mulching.

Have a great day,


  1. I still really like them, although I probably liked them more when they first started to appear...they were probably a bit more shocking then! And you's a great flag. I wish we'd do more with our southern cross motif

  2. I like them, especially the faded vintage ones. I would use them if we had a boys bedroom at our house:) Since that will never happen, I will just admire them via your blog Janette:) Wishing you a lovely Thursday ~ Txx

  3. LOVE. My husband is British, so it's all Rule Britannia, blah, blah, blah..No, really, I love everything British..Rachaelxx

  4. Love the cushions !!!! ...they are popping everywhere aren't they ..thanks for sharing-love the ones you chose..have a great day XX

  5. How funny you post about this! I'm just putting together an inspiration board based on all things UK....inspired by my bff! She headed over to Europe last wek and left me all alone here!

  6. I like that rug in the nursery pic. I've seen a Union Jack cushion I love on Etsy which I think would go nicely in our lounge but I don't know how meaningful a piece it would be in our home as I've never been to the UK. Can't wait to see some pics of your garden Janette!! x

  7. Never tire of the union jack. Great blog! Look forward to following to enjoy more of this deliciousness! xo Erica

  8. I love them, especially the washed out look. I've had the Hellcat cushions saved as favourites on Etsy for a while now :)

  9. I have noticed the comeback of the Union Jack & must admit that I really like some of the ways in which it is used. I especially like the rug on the floor in the nursery... illy the cuddly


Thanks! I love reading your comments! Jxx
