I have the Westwood cushion (a Christmas gift from La Talia) and I just love it. The rug is fabulous as well. The UK is great for original small cottage industry design, but it costs!

What a fun post! You've got a really great collection--love that print in Tara Smith's amazing apartment.

You did some good research here! I liked Tara Smith's decor.

Other than that, I wouldn't do Union Jacks.

I have that VIvienne Westwood cushion and love it completely. In summer, it goes on a daybed on the piazza, and in winter, it goes on a different daybed in a tiny little library painted geranium pink.
