Olympic Worthy Decor

We dusted off our green and gold Puma's over at LLD and cheered for our Jamaican countrymen, Usain Bolt and company.  As the Olympic dramas finally came to an end, we couldn't help but think about national pride and how that can be infused throughout your decor. Here's a peak at some spaces that we think say, "Hey, I think I love my country."  

The leader of the pack with the most Olympic medals. A great way to pay homage to the USA is to have the flag dominating a room....

The red and yellow plays homage to the Chinese, who took home the second most medals of the games.
Can't ignore the Brits can we? After all, they were the most gracious hosts of the the games.

The Canadians may not have snagged a treasure trove of medals, but we think they would be proud of this awesome chest.

This year's games provided reality TV at it's best.  A 25 year-old runner and his teammates silenced the naysayers. A 27 year-old swimmer said goodbye after winning the most medals ever, and a 16 year old gymnast made history - and those were just a few of the highlights. I have a feeling the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro will also be one for the record books.  What was your favorite part of the 2012 summer games? Were the opening and closing ceremonies all you thought they would be? Or was a Spice Girls reunion just a bit too much?

  1. These concepts will be well-accepted by the public, mark my words. It looks like the remnants of the spirit of the Olympics still lingers as we see the banner waved around the room with these designs.

  2. I love this round-up. I think the Olympics help everyone come together and put aside their differences. So sad it has come to an end. I love the American flag anywhere! Of course the Brit's Union Jack has an amazing design.
