Living the life, British Colonial style.

British Colonial Design

Kate Walker Design - KWD

The reign of the British Empire is one of the world’s earliest forms of globalisation, and between the late 16th century and the early 18th century the Empire was 100 times the size of Great Britain.  For the colonists it was a time of exotic adventures, for the invaded lands the memories are much less glamorous.  History is peppered with the tales of the spice trade that brought riches to many lands, and also of the devastation of invasion and foreign occupation.  At its peak, the British Empire was the largest in history and the foremost global power, and Britain’s territory encompassed trading posts and tea, coffee and rubber plantations in Africa, India, the Far East, the South Pacific and the Caribbean.  The result was a melting pot of cultures and a rich mix of traditions that created the new world as we know it today.
