British made

October 30, 2020

When I think of English decor, I picture beautiful, heavy drapery from Colefax and Fowler, Liberty wallpaper that reflects the whimsy of an English garden, a Queen Anne wingback upholstered in freshly churned butter, country crockery, creaky staircases, and exquisite crown moldings. This North London home, built during the Arts and Crafts Movement, is quintessentially British. For starters, the greeny-brown grasscloth in the master is the colour of “freshly laid cowpat.” Or, so says the interior designer, Ben Pentreath. Pentreath is the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge’s interior designer. La ti da. I love the Farrow & Ball Hague Blue in the kitchen, and the Robert Kime ikat print that lines the cupboards in the master walk-in. A fireplace in the guest room is covered in charming Douglas Watson tiles and this wallpaper is William Morris.
