Interiors Get The Look

Favourites 41

When it comes to styling your home, architectural and interior design studio Ben Pentreath has a well-earned reputation as one of the best in the business. Known for creating classic interiors with a playful touch, the company’s ethos centres around working with, rather than against, a space. And this week, we’re loving their Drayton Gardens project – an apartment redesign combining a bold use of colour with traditional details for a fresh, modern feel. Here’s how to recreate the look for less…

The Seating Area

Invest in retro-inspired armchairs in muted tones and add clashing patterns for a modern look. Grey walls– try Farrow & Ball’s Plummett – provide the ideal canvas for playing with colour, team orange and pink accessories with hints of blue and yellow for an eclectic finish.

The Open-Plan Study

We love the trick of balancing more traditional homeware, think wrought-iron side tables, dark wood desk/dressers and this OKA hand painted vase, with a modern artwork and a miss-matched sofa and ottoman. Dress your ottoman with coffee table books to keep the look fresh.
