A Very Merry Christmas from Jenny Blanc…

Planning the Christmas window at our West London showroom is one of the tasks I look forward to each year with great anticipation – whether based around a traditional Christmas tree or something more unusual, it’s the perfect opportunity to combine beautiful fabrics and home furnishings alongside gifts and smaller decorations to create a real feast for the eyes! This year in particular I felt the need to bring a touch of Christmas magic so am very happy to present our ‘Christmas angel’ to you today!

 

Jenny Blanc - London Showroom Christmas Window DisplayThe beautiful sheer fabric by Sahco which forms the body of our angel caught my eye because of the clever use of matt sequins which add depth and interest without being too glitzy. The wallpaper behind is by Harlequin and is from their latest collection. Unusual wallpapers, particularly those incorporating metallic elements, were one of the most interesting trends to gain momentum this year – we have some fantastic new additions to our samples library at the West London showroom which are already proving popular. Teal was another strong trend in 2016 and was the perfect choice for this year’s window – combined with warm metallics, glassware and natural textures including faux fur and branches it feels both glamorous and festive.

In store we have an incredible selection of decorations, perfect for adding that last minute finishing touch to your home. Home fragrance by Aromatique and Castelbel are perfect for setting the scene for festive entertaining whilst an original selection of baubles and ornaments will trim the tree wonderfully!

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We look forward to welcoming you in 2017 with our sale, starting on Saturday 7th January at our West London Showroom.

Jenny Blanc welcomes Shakieta Marshall to the team in Barbados…

Jenny Blanc Blog - Supports Princes Trust International

Prince’s Trust International is a youth charity recently established in Barbados with the aim of helping disadvantaged young people on the island gain vital skills to move into education, training or employment. The Trust, formally launched last November in Malta by its President HRH The Prince of Wales, has partnered in Barbados with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Youth for the first pilots of the ‘’Get Into’’ employability programme on the island. Jenny Blanc were delighted to support Prince’s Trust International by offering a work experience opportunity at our Barbados showroom during September 2016.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Interior Design Barbados

Shakieta Marshall has a strong interest in Interior Design and is very creative both as a current student of the Barbados Community College’s Art and Design programme and in her own time. Prince’s Trust International’s ‘’Get Into’’ programme provided the opportunity for Shakieta to begin to bridge the gap between education and employment. Shakieta spent a week and a half at our showroom in St. James where she gained hands on experience with some of the most important areas of the business. Whilst based in the showroom Shakieta assisted the team with pricing, cleaning and greeting customers as well as filing and organising fabric samples. Shakieta also visited our warehouse to measure, count and catalogue the fabric stock, giving her an overview of some of the practicalities of running a design and retail showroom.

Design Director Sue Thomas-Richardson who is Barbadian herself was based at the showroom during this time and was able to conduct training with Shakieta on floor planning, drafting, how to work effectively with design clients as well as taking Shakieta on a site visit to a West Coast residence. Shakieta put her knowledge and training to the test drafting a lamp and shade for a customer request.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Barbados Showroom

The work experience placement was a real success and Jenny Blanc would like to thank Shakieta for all of her hard work. We’re happy to report that Shakieta will be staying on with us, working in the showroom on Saturdays. We look forward to her continued development towards a successful career in Interior Design!
