Inspired by the Royal Wedding

Even though Royal Wedding fever has eventually died down, we’re not going to deny that we’re still a teeny bit interested in all the post-wedding gossip. We’re staying well away from all the cheesy Will and Kate memorabilia but we do like a touch of royal glitz when it's tastefully done. Take this Halo Bensington Union Jack sofa for one. Cat Deeley famously presented the CNN coverage of the Royal Wedding from this iconic couch – and we’ve got to say that even while she discussed the guests’ arrivals and those all-important hats with fellow commentators, our focus was clearly on the couch rather than the panel. Another great find is this Elizabeth and Philip candle set from Sobeit Studio (R240 per set) which would be perfect for a royal-themed dinner party. And if you’re the hands-on type, why not commemorate the wedding by knitting your own set of royals – corgis included? See our fellow blogger Hurricane Vanessa’s post on that.
