Home – A royal welcome

As Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband Prince William celebrate the birth of their baby, share the couple’s excitement by turning your home into the best of British.

In Godzone, it’s not hard to find bits and bobs relating to the Union Jack or iconic UK landmarks. Working with base colours (red, white and blue) isn’t a challenge as these are often staple shades in any home. The key is to use them in a variety of shapes and patterns to bring your royal room to life.

Small, colourful objects can be moved around to keep your decor looking fresh. FIND IT: Door stop $49.90 from Redcurrant, Union Jack curtain fabric $59.95 from Allium, Guitar from Garden Party $65, Lettering LONDON $24.99 from The Warehouse, Lego boxes (small) $25 (medium) $36.50 from Allium, Brit mini $89.90 from Republic, Serving tray $104.90 from Chambers, Union Jack piggy bank $12.99 from The Warehouse, Union Jack wallet $28 from Garden Party, Union Jack cushion $85 from KOKO.

This makeover is very easy to do – you can go the whole nine yards and paint a wall-sized tribute to our northern cousins, such as this Union Jack to the left, but if you just want a few punches of the monarchy around your home, items such as the dog doorstop or money bank are subtle ways to have carefree fun without changing your interior design for the long term.
