Book Description

8 Mar 2012
Perfect English Farmhouse celebrates the characteristic style and fascinating history of the classic farmhouse and shows how to turn your own home into a welcoming retreat. Farmhouse is a word that conjures an array of appealing associations: fresh eggs and baby lambs, chunky beams and flagged floors, cream teas and harvest suppers, a place of welcome and plenty. With their generous kitchens and meandering layout, the architectural informality of the farmhouse suits modern lifestyles. Through a series of case studies, Perfect English Farmhouse explores contemporary farmhouse style. The book is divided into chapters according to style: Organic, Traditional, Farm Fresh, No Frills and Funky, and at the end of each chapter a spread highlights the key elements of that particular decorative look. There is also a comprehensive listing of suppliers to help readers create their very own perfect farmhouse style.

More About the Author

Ros was born in London in 1960. She read English at Oxford and her first job was working for an antique dealer who specialised in early silver. Her most difficult task was being taken for a walk by two English mastiffs, both of whom weighed more than she did.

Fortunately, it wasn't too long before she was offered a job at The World of Interiors, an innovative magazine based in upstairs rooms on Fulham Road. She was Features Editor for several years, left to work as a freelance writer, and then returned after the birth of her first daughter to work part time. When her second daughter was born, Ros went freelance again which is where she has remained ever since, writing about houses, their occupants and their interiors. Ros has written and contributed to many books and is the recipient of several awards.

In 2002 she moved from London to the West Country to a 16th century house close to the sea. The restoration of the house is now finished, but the large garden is an ongoing project.

She is the author of the forthcoming title Farrow & Ball Living with Colour, along with Interiors by Design, Old House New Home and the bestselling Perfect English and Perfect English Cottage (all published by Ryland Peters & Small).

'Any book by Ros Byam Shaw inspires confidence and delight, being brilliantly researched and handsomely illustrated.' The World of Interiors

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is probably the best written and photographed interiors book I have had. Roz Byam Shaw writes superbly and when I am reading her words it feels as if she is in my sitting room talking to me. What I especially love about this book is that although all the homes highlighted are superb, you really don't feel intimidated by them - they all seem to have a few "chips" around the edges (if you know what I mean). I just love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect English 26 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book a good all round English House book, with something for everyone. Some of the "big house" effects could certainly be incorporated into the "small house".
