Bunting display - 10 ideas
Bunting has moved far beyond its traditional use at an English summer garden party or fete. A bunting renaissance in interior design has seen bunting being used in all sorts of quirky and imaginative ways. The only limitation in its use is your imagination, so introduce some Enid Blyton style fun into your home with our garland displays.
Why not make your own bunting. Choose your favourite fabrics and create your own garland design. All you need are fabric off-cuts, or you could even cut out pages from a much-loved magazine — form flag shapes, stick back and front together and string up. Why not make bunting displays with the kids and proudly display you handiwork around the home.
Create an Alice in Wonderland bedroom with bright and pastel colours and furniture with a bunting display. A perfect setting for a fantasy picnic with teddy bears and maybe your child's pet dog or cat! Let your little one’s imagination run wild.
Decorate your child’s bedroom with a pretty row of bunting in her favourite fabric. If it's yellow or blue, opt for gingham, polka dot and floral designs for the flags in these hues. Coordinate the bunting with key features in the room. Paint the walls in a fresh white, with a bold feature wall. Add simple floral bed and a vintage-style chest of drawers to add to the country-style charm.
What could be more fun than covering a wall with a garland of bunting to add a quirky edge to kitchen décor. Dress open shelving or an armoire with a row of bunting and add vintage style tableware. Team the country style with stripped floorboards in the kitchen and a classic Aga stove.
Display bunting trailed around a wrought iron bed for some chic country style. Or pin bunting in front of a row of practical shelving in a home office for quirky style.
Wake up your windows with a quirky vintage-inspired bunting display.
Each one is made from re-cycled retro annuals and comics, including pages from Jackie and Dennis the Menace, as well as vintage music sheets and maps. They're all beautifully sewn together with contrasting braiding.
