Fly your flag loud and proud

Adding a flag isn't necessarily just a patriotic gesture; it can also be a fashion statement.

When I was a child, I could spend hours staring at the Flags of the World page in a coffee table book that my parents had. I loved looking at the subtle differences of many, and the uniqueness and singularity of other ones. I find it very interesting that I know of many other people, who as children, had this fascination as well. Did you, too?

Flags have a powerful presence. Anyone, at any age, seems to recognize it, so it’s no surprise that when you introduce them into decor, they create a significant design punch. I love them because apart of having a real nautical, vintage look (which I obviously love!), they bring bold color blocking, pattern, and history.

The American and British Union flag are already found in many upholstered chairs, sofas, rugs, throws and pillows,  but personally, I love the idea of framing a vintage flag. In this case all you have to do is buy which ever flag is your favorite and frame it. Either over-sized and centrally placed or very small and subtle, they are always interesting to both adults and kids and a great addition to the interior design of any room.

Flags as a theme can be quite a classy and classic choice for a young boys room.
