Why Yorkshire Instagram star Jack March has repainted his front door for the Queen's Jubilee

If there is a prize for the most fabulous door decorated in honour of the Platinum Jubilee, it should surely go to Jack March.Yorkshire-based Jack, an Instagram interiors star, created the tribute because he says: “I love the Queen and after two years of everyone feeling uncertain and celebrations missed, cancelled or forgotten, the Jubilee is a time to really celebrate.”

The front door of his double-fronted terraced house in York was already a rich red so he used blue spray paint and white gloss to create a patriotic Union Jack n honour of Her Majesty. He added a garland of union jack flags and a handmade wreath from Homemadehandmade.co.uk
