Union Jack

I am so looking forward to our trip this year. It will be a huge challenge for us - 6 weeks in different, non-baby proofed environments with a baby who threatens to walk every day - but the activities we have planned are just so exciting.

The most exciting part for me is going to be London. Not only for the Wedding of the Year, but I just adore the city. We have afternoon tea at Claridges planned as well as a visit to Buckingham Palace to see the Queen's Diamond collection as well as dinner at Dinner. And then there's the shopping...

I do want to pick up a few choice items overseas, but at the moment I am focused on getting a union jack feature piece for our lounge room. It would be a nice memento of the trip I think, and very fitting given the Jubilee year.

Here are a few choice items I have shortlisted:

 This fab bean bag. I love the shape and the depth of colour. Obviously it won't fit in the suitcase as is but it might if I can get it without the beans...

So technically not for the lounge room, but I could wear them in the lounge room and they are very decorative.... But these shoes are great. Love them. And they are Chie Mihara. Win win.

This Jan Constantine cushion. I need more cushions in my life and Jan Constantine makes the best of the best. Or maybe this one by Karen Hilton...?
And whilst this isn't traditional in terms of colour, it's the perfect neutral foil for our lounge room. And everyone loves a stylish rug!

So how are you injecting a little Jubilee into your life?

I am injecting a little Jubilee into my home by continually stalking Peter's of Kensington and hoping that they re-stock this apron: http://www.petersofkensington.com.au/Public/Ulster-Weavers-Diamond-Jubilee-Contemporary-Apron-Blue.aspx
