trend alert!- union jack.

We know the union jack is the official flag of the United Kingdom but it's one seriously cool trend in fashion, home decor and has recently made it's appearance in the 7gypsies line!

We couldn't help but smile when we saw this photo in the latest restoration hardware catalog.  

Did you know that there is a correct way for drawing the union jack?  
If you're so moved to recreate your own version, make sure you get the Brit seal of approval by following these guidelines.  And if you don't?  Ah well, it just means you did it the gypsy way~ however you darn well like it!

So if the new 7gypsies products aren't enough to fill your newly discovered union jack itch, here's a few more inspiring ideas for working our new favorite trend into your next big project!
