Greg Penn is one of the most interesting people I’ve encountered in two decades covering home décor and design. Less than two years ago, the 36-year-old took possession of a Georgian mansion-originally built for a Naval officer-in Plymouth, England more than 200 years ago.
It’s a grand story, for lots of reasons, which I wrote about. But the best part may be that it’s still pretty much in its early chapters with Penn. Follow the visual narrative @manwithahammer to watch this handsome house come back to life. See below for pics of what Penn (self-taught in DIY and design) has done so far, and tell me if you agree he has a good eye and a deft hand.
