8 Ways to Create a Modern British Home with Art


by Milly

Move over Downton Abbey, British homes are having a contemporary revival. This style is about British grace and sophistication, without the frills. Try these eight simple ways to get the look.

1. Take on Textiles

Add a tactile touch to your walls with a beautiful textile design. Try some prints by William Morris, Britain’s most influential textile designer.

2. Create a Hall of Fame

Crisp white walls form the perfect backdrop for gold-framed portraits and landscapes. The result? A contemporary take on a quintessential British look.

3. Add a Touch of Vogue

Nothing says British style quite like Vogue. Dress your walls with photography from the Vogue archives for an instant a la mode British interior.

4. Take a Fresh Look at Flowers

Forget chintzy florals, modern British homes are embracing bold blooms instead. Choose from our range of painterly, graphic and colourful contemporary floral art prints.

5. Create a Country Mantle

For an instant British feature, turn a mantle or shelf into a country cottage display. Team Eric Ravilious’ shopfront illustrations with a few well-chosen rustic accessories. Here, we’ve opted for vintage books and candlesticks to complete the country look.

6. Paint it Blue

Create a living room fit for a Queen with a royal blue colour palette. Team blue walls with abstract seascapes for a charming British finish.

7. Add a Pop of Britishness

How can we talk about Britain without Her Royal Highness? Inject some poptastic fun into your living space with an iconic Warhol screenprint.

8. Throwback to Retro Britishness

Penguin paperbacks have been making a design statement since 1935. The jackets have now become a hallmark of great British design. Inject these classic covers into your space with a print from the collection.
