I recently posted on Instagram about The George in MontClair, New Jersey. It has been designed by beauty legend Bobbi Brown. I have become slightly obsessed with the interior, it is just beautiful and many of the interior design magazines have been writing about it (The Cut, Architectural Digest etc). She uses red and the union jack against dark greys very carefully which gives the rooms just the right amount of pop.
So I had a good look around to see what great accessories you can use to get a similar effect to update your greys and whites. Using the reds, tartan and union jack subtlety just like Bobbi Brown.
This large tartan throw over the bed will be perfect to give some bright colours to your bedroom. Tartan throw by John Hanley – Bear and Bear
I love a union jack cushion, but my husband won’t let me have them. Don’t worry I don’t usually listen to him so they will appear shortly.

A Wild and Wold 746 telephone from Robert Dyas. These phones always speak to my love of retro and there is no need to worry about getting your finger stuck on this one, it has been totally updated.
I love this Faux Book which actually has gin inside (you’ll look well read but can have a sneeky drink) available form Fortnum and Mason by Chase Distillery.
You can’t get more British than a red mini with a union jack on top – This will add a bit of fun to the room without going ott from TK Maxx
Not so subtle but I blinking well love this, it is a closet, yep a closet. I can’t tell you how much I want this. If you get it, I want to see pictures!! From Maison du Monde
I also wouldn’t be able to help myself from jumping out of it in a superhero outfit!
