Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Eighteen homes, many of which have never been previously photographed, provide the source material for architectural and interior designer Ben Pentreath's wide-ranging investigation of the classic English look. The houses include Ben's homes in London and West Dorset, alongside those of Earls and artists, writers and architects, book designers and gardeners. The book is arranged room by room and Entrance Halls, Living Rooms, Kitchens and Dining Rooms, Bedrooms, and Bathrooms are each considered in turn, together with simple Rooms of Utility and spectacular Rooms of Display. The book begins with an essay on the English style in decoration and ends with an essential style directory, helping you to achieve the look wherever you live."--Provided by publisher.
