The Brits haven’t only invaded the screens, stages, stereos, and styles over the years – they’ve invaded the interiors of some of our most fashionable homes. Last fall, studying in London, I couldn’t get enough of the culture, people, food, art, and superb style. If I am sure of one thing, it is that anyone who has ever had the pleasure of visiting Great Britain would love to take it home with them. With these pieces – some subtle and some screaming with English Pride – any home can get that lovely London flair for a scrumptiously small fee.

Yes, they might be everywhere and perhaps they’re a bit predictable these days, but I cannot help but love these takes on the London Underground “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters. Sleek and simple, they provide the perfect pop of color and humor to any space. Picture this above your bar. Cheers, mate.
