Union Jacks were undeniably one of the big trends in 2010, and one that shows no sign of abating if this Union Jack Ottoman is anything to go by.
As is often the case with Union Jack decorated pieces, it makes a strong statement, and could just as easily look tacky as cool if in the wrong surroundings, but in a large room where the rest of the decor is simple, it could work. The ottoman measures 46cm high by 128cm wide x 78cm deep, with the internal storage space being slightly less.
The ottoman is available to buy online for £995 from Graham and Green.
The most simplistic and effective ways to achieve a summery retro style are classic dresses, from forties tea to sixties shift. Favouring a fifties look, this summer has featured plenty of floral swing-style dresses on the high street.
This Floral Ottoman Crini Dress from Miss Selfridge has a chic and classic retro shape, from the high neckline and sleeveless cut to a full circle skirt and high waistline. The floral print combines classic inspiration with a more modern design influence, thanks to a bright and bold colour palette.
It's available online from Miss Selfridge for £45.
