LOVE the Union Jack bedspread and the brick walls. Envisioning having slabs of brick (it's like reallllllly thick wallpaper-esque poster boards) on a few of my walls and then having the others painted a color complementing the brick. Not sure what it would be though? Seems as though almost anything looks good with it. Then getting a futon/couch and probably getting a Union Jack blanket/throw. Then replacing my light/fan with a chandelier of sorts.. but make it look like a London lamp (post?)
This poster was printed, along with 2 other like ones with reassuring messages, right after WWII. The King wanted to encourage and improve the overall morale of the British citizens and had masses of these printed. They eventually deteriorated and were forgotten about, until several years back when a book-keeper found some of the only remaining prints that had survived in an auction. The revival of these posters have been inspiration to many ad campaigns and now serve as a decorative piece to many.
*I watched Pirate Radio last night, a movie loosely based about the illegal rock/pop radio station that broadcasted off an old fishing boat on the coast of England in the 1960's. The story was extremely moving and I had tears by the end of the movie.. but the costuming was IMPECCABLE. Every woman that sailed out to visit the Radio DJ's was dressed to perfection and looked like a pin up model for Andy Warhol.
OH, and the lead role is a GOD. Meet Tom Sturridge and Talulah Riley.
MOVING ON! Fashion inspiration is loosely stemmed from that of British rock & roll/60's mod pop culture
