It's 2012, and we're all enjoying the benefits of our 21st Century lifestyle. But despite what the old films, TV shows and books told us, the most influential place this year isn't some distant planet. It's good old Blighty - and that's as true in your home as it is on the streets of London town.
Why is 2012 a Big Year for British Style?
From the catwalks of Milan to the boutiques of New York City, everyone knows that there are only two words in the world of fashion this year - Great, and Britain. But that British look doesn't just start with your outfit and hairstyle, as more and more people decide to turn to the Best of British homeware to celebrate the year's two big events.
Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee
The first big event of Britannia's 2012 celebratory calendar takes place at the very start of June, as the country and commonwealth gather to celebrate the reign of one of the nation's longest serving monarchs.
Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne since 1952, and to celebrate everyone's having a massive party. There'll be bunting aplenty as the country enjoys a special holiday. And if you want to get into the spirit of things, you can add a Royal Crown Glass cake stand to your homeware collection, and have your very own Jubilee tea party!
The London 2012 Olympics
After the royal festivities have died down, London hosts Britain's first Olympic Games in over 60 years, which is sure to mean that all eyes are trained on the English capital all summer.
