Jenny Blanc to win International Property Award 2

Jenny and her team of designers submitted their most exciting project which was a year in the making, pouring heart and soul in to every stage and element.

The client’s Grade II listed home in Hertfordshire required sympathetic restoration from the specification of architectural features, beautiful fabrics and furniture to lovingly sourced decorative antiques and finishing touches.  The project will feature on the website after the awards have been announced.

The Company has won several International Property Awards in the past, to include Best International Design for a project completed in the Caribbean seen here on their website and hope to add another accolade to their collection.

The London showroom celebrates…

…What better way to celebrate the opening of the new showroom in Barbados than with a Caribbean inspired window at the original London based showroom? Customers love to see each new window inspiration take shape, this time masterminded by Showroom Director Chrissie Cocks and Senior Interior Designer Abigail Tyrrell. The wonderfully talented David Bailey who used to be Display Manager for Selfridges and is in charge of Jenny Blanc’s creative retail displays, has his feet firmly back on British soil having just returned from working in Barbados with Jenny on the new showroom. Two days decorating, arranging, fixing and tweaking and the new window is ready to welcome customers. Come and visit for an instant burst of Caribbean sunshine!

The Launch Party!

Jenny Blanc Barbados

Jenny Blanc, in fabulous sapphire silk, welcomed over 100 guests to the new showroom in St James, Barbados, on one of the best tropical evenings of the season- balmy and with a slight breeze. As an old fashioned suited and booted combo band played calypso and Frank Sinatra, guests enjoyed glasses of Champagne decorated with liqueur-imbued Barbadian sorrell flowers. Guests included Barbadian dignitaries,valued clients, Barbadian friends and partners the company has built up over the years and some of the most influential business people on the island. It was hard for guests to chat and not to shop, but the shopping has carried on in earnest ever since! Jenny is overwhelmed by the comments and reaction she is receiving with everyone on the island wishing the company all the very best for an exciting future in Barbados.

The Blanc sons…

…just as busy as their mother!

The Blanc sons... 11
Brothers and sister - Oli on the left with Emma and Seb

Since Jenny’s sons Sebastien and Olivier, were featured on the Raymond Blanc Christmas Special December 2011 people have been asking Jenny about her boys. Yes, they may be handsome, but what do they do? Both have a love for treading the boards and like to combine this with other projects. Seb, with his director hat on, is putting the finishing touches to a biting satire on media standards and ethics, The Shallow End, running at the Southwark Playhouse from the 18th February to the 3rd March. Working in a different medium, Oli is busily producing Henri Le Worm. Collaborating with his father and actress Charlotte Salt from Casualty, Oli has produced a children’s app using garden bugs, beasts and butterflies to encourage children to take their first exciting steps into the kitchen, so learning to cook with the help of the master of excellence, Raymond Blanc. Henri the worm is inspired by Raymond himself, exercising passion, humour and French flair. There’s a blog if you want to find out more and a trailer featuring the Michelin-starred Raymond is soon to be posted on the blog. You heard it here first!
