On Japanese Trash this week: British Influence. | japanesetrash.com

This week I’m trying something new: an entire week of posts that look at a specific masculine design inspiration – the British Isles. From Union Jacks (see above) to Sherlock Holmes, I’ll be giving the Japanese Trash spin on British Influence in interior design.

Here is a peek at some of what I’ll be covering on the blog this week:

Minimalist Designer John Pawson

One of Great Britain’s most influential designers, John Pawson‘s aesthetic is found in everything from cookbooks to Swedish farmhouses.

Chesterfields

Perhaps the only interior piece more British than a Chesterfield is one with the Union Jack on it.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

I’m a huge fan of movies and television, and one film coming up is this one; I’ll look at the specific British styles that show up in the trailer.

Keep Calm and Carry On

The Conran Shop

Designer Terrance Conran founded one of the first lifestyle brands when he opened The Conran Shop. I’ll take a look at the brand’s influence on our daily lives.

Sherlock Holmes

I’ll wrap up the week with a review of interior design ideas inspired by the latest incarnations of the world famous detective who lives at 221B Baker Street.

Do a search for showers on Pinterest and you’ll find everything from “How to Decorate Using Unicorns” (yeah, really–I’m not making that up) to how to use shower curtain rings to organize everything from baseball caps to scarves. And, in the midst of all that, you’ll also find some amazing showers. Here are a few of the favorite–both indoor and outdoor–showers that I found:
