Summer seems to be the time of year where you can see more sporting events than usual. And where there’s sports, there are inevitably flags. So we thought we’d take a look at ways that you can fly the flag for your country in a host of new and unusual ways!
This bedroom features an emphatic use of the Union Jack to make sure that everybody knows who this child will be rooting for! The matching wall flag, cushions and even the rug all tie together in a fresh and funky way and allow the simple furniture to stay functional and smart.
The stars and stripes of the American flag are one of the most iconic images of the past century and it has been taken to heart by many artists and designers. This dining room subverts the flag imagery slightly by using a photograph of a manipulated, almost-watery flag image that cleverly reflects the subtle nautical theme that permeates the room.
One of the great things about flags is that they are usually bold, full of colour and can say so much in a simple way. This teenager’s bedroom makes great use of the Jamaican flag in a rough and ready manner which, when accompanied with the basketball, electric guitar and funky bedspread, all come together to create a space that is both relaxed and fun!
And some flags seem to conjure up a special mood all of their own. The iconic Canadian maple leaf flag positively breathes refined class and natural elegance, especially when presented in the way of this rough-hewn, handmade wooden wall hanging!
But if you’re stuck for choice on which flags to use in your home, then worry not, as the great thing about flags is that you can make up some of your own. This is shown by these bunting flags that are full of bold colours and simple design, so easy that anybody can do it!
