You may well be wondering where we're going with this - our usual pretty French interiors are a far cry from the Punk scene, but when you're craving a bit of rebellion and have a desire to spruce things up a bit, we're of the opinion that the two complement each other excellently. Punk is great for giving any look an edge - it certainly says "don't mess with me!" whilst strongly embracing British at its best.
Punk is a trend that never dies, fashionistically speaking, and we never have to look overseas to get the cream of the Punk crop; there is of course Queen of Punk Viv and Prince McQueen, with skulls, tartan and buckles a-plenty. Whether you get your tartan fix from Topshop's latest collection, an anarchy inspired slogan T from ASOS or a razor blade styled bracelet from Marc Jacobs, it’s time to get pretty with punk!

We're going girly punk (yes, it's possible), throwing some unexpected fun and funky, or should I say punky, items into our usual mix of French style furniture and progressive design. We've all seen skulls aplenty for a little while, although I'm still not bored of seeing them, but adding some metallic items particularly rose gold tones this season or a little red here and there, is a sure fire way to punk up your home!
