The British Invasion was officially kicked off April 27, 2011 - the day Prince William wed commoner Kate Middleton. Consider that London will host the 2012 Summer Olympic Games and you have a full blown fad (in decorator terms, more serious than an invasion.)

Since our forefathers kicked their royal arses back across the Atlantic after the Revolutionary War, Americans have been fascinated by the tiny country that roared.  This tattered souvenir flag of King George was a popular WWI momento.

Versions of the Union Jack, England's equivalent of Old Glory, have been popping up in designers' showrooms and in style magazines for the last few months.  

The bedding manufacturing company Decree recently debuted Jack Abstract,

designer Scot Meagham Wood's foyer scheme.

Inexpensive accent pieces are available at flea markets 
and online wholesale shops.

Whether you choose to acknowledge the Royal Movement
with a sparkle or a sigh, just remember:
