So what is the most famous British tradition you can think of? Afternoon tea! I recently toured the newly refurbished Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon at the famous department store Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly. The room is filled with beautiful sea foam green and tiffany blue colors (just what we love at House of Turquoise) and was created by the world famous interior designer David Collins. Designed to imitate a Georgian drawing room with subtle architectural reminders of Fortnum’s early days in the 1700s, the tea salon was opened by HM the Queen accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Parker Bowles) and the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton).
