Union Jack Fever

When I found these images this morning over at Ruby Press, it got me thinking…Why is the Union Jack Flag currently so popular? Don’t get me wrong I love the trend. I grew up in Australia (part of the Commonwealth) where we had to sing “God save the Queen” every morning at school, but since then the monarchy and our ties to Britain have really gone out of favour, and it is only a matter of time before we become a Republic. Yet still décor with the Union Jack motif seems to be Super Uber Cool!  Enough of my pontification…

Don’t you just love everything about this bedroom by Betsy Burnham? The Union Jack chest of drawers are to die for! I love her eclectic style and use of colour.  Some people are just too clever!

    We do see a lot of it around in images don’t we – but I wonder if it really is so big here in Australia?

    Mackenzie if you do make that UJD I’d love to see it. It would make for a great DIY post. Thanks for dropping by.
