OK, so Apartment Therapy has featured Union Jack Roundups before, but with the popular style constantly being reinvented, we thought we’d bring you up-to-date on the famous look.

Did you know the term “Jack” refers to any flag other than the national flag flown by a ship? Jacks are often flown when the ship is dressed on special occasions. Luckily, you don’t need an excuse to dress up your living room.
