aesthetically speaking: new wave british decor

there are some styles that are so classic and cool, they never go out of fashion, and for me, british inspired design is one of those things!

when you imagine the traditional english home a few things come to mind; beautiful case goods in rich stains with a bit of patina, a great paisley or floral printed sofa, well worn leather sofa (or faux!) and of course stripes. however, the modern british movement is taking these tried and true elements and reinterpreting them into contemporary scenes. taking the familiar, adding a twist of whimsy with light, airy elements to keep the traditional alive, while bringing in a young, fresh feel. we’ve taken the liberty to pull together a room fit for princess kate herself, with nods to the time-honored, with some quirky touches.
