8 British-inspired buys to feel all royal at home

From oven mitts and tea towels to British-inspired wall art and teapots, these royal delights can be peppered throughout your home, or used for entertaining, and are sure to add a touch of classic style no matter how you like to decorate.

1. Iconic art

This limited-edition print, aptly titled ‘London’s Calling’, showcases one of Britain’s most iconic objects: The much-photographed red telephone box.

Hang it in a retro-styled room for a slice of London life.

2. Get cooking, good looking

While we’re on the retro theme – check out these sweet oven mitts, designed by Victoria Eggs and made in Britain from 100% unbleached cotton.

Featuring the Union Jack, the quintessential London bus and face of Big Ben, the mitts are a bold celebration of all things London.

3. Queen Elizabeth

If you’ve got more than $7,000 to spare – and you adore the Queen – this piece of artwork could be right up your alley.

It did take 108 hours to complete and features bold Chinese influences. Perhaps it’s what you’ve always dreamed of. Or, not…?

4. Tea for two

Because what is more quintessentially British than a good ‘cuppa?

5. Bowie, baby

‘Duality of the Mind – Part 2‘, by Melissa Hartley, $1,005. Picture: Bluethumb

Bowie fans, this one’s for you. Created with acrylic paint, this artwork pays homage to ‘Aladdin Sane’, the sixth studio album by Bowie.

At 43.5cm x 54cm, it’s a decent size and we reckon it’d look pretty slick in your hallway – perhaps above some natural timbers, as pictured below.

6. Keep it clean

If the oven mitts weren’t enough, these matching retro-style tea towels should suffice.

The tea towels are available in red, black and blue and you can order them online.

7. A typographic twist

Made in the UK, printed on matte paper and available in A3 or A2, this playful print features 244 British icons, places, things and people – there’s even a recipe for a Victoria sponge cake on there.

The red and blue colours are the exact Pantone colours of the official Union Jack, too.

8. Puppy love

Just because this little guy is so damn cute – and he’s named the Olde English Bulldogge – we couldn’t resist including this piece of wall art in the mix.

If you love the idea of seeing your little one up on your wall at home, artist Elissa is available for bespoke commissions, too.
