Ben Pentreath Ltd.

I came across Ben Pentreath’s flat in the book, Perfect English over the weekend. His style is what I aspire too. Layers of pattern, antiques, and art that is approachable but classic. The small chair in the upper right of the photo is upholstered in men’s suiting. I love the gray field with the red stripe—a color a combo I think would be perfect for my den.

Ben runs a great shop in London offering accessories, art, and furniture with a nod to classicism. The store is filled to the brims but finds flow through patterning and symmetry. For those of us unable to make the trip across the pond, Ben has a great online shop filled with all his favorite essentials.

    Katy, your blog is so consistently good for my amazon shopping cart and bad for my wallet. The store looks amazing too.

    Hello Katy,
    Thanks so much for mentioning Perfect English by Ros Byam Shaw on your wonderfully stylish and inviting blog! Do check out the sequel, Perfect English Cottage, think you’ll like that one too. We’ve photographed more inspirational interiors by Ben Pentreath for Ros’s next book, Farrow & Ball Living with Colour which we publish this September.

    I am lucky enough to work just round the corner from the Ben Pentreath shop (such a temptation). Do explore his blog – on the ‘inspirations’ bit of his website.

    I love your blog. I came across it as I was trying to find people with like interests and style in the North east. I am moving to Maine in a few months and have loved reading your story. Thanks for all the amazing inspiration!
