Celebrating Rosh Hashanah with Jenny Blanc Interiors

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, a holy festival celebrating the creation of the world. In 2018 Rosh Hashanah will begin in the evening of Sunday 9th September and end in the evening of Tuesday 11th September. Traditionally the festival is celebrated with a special family meal where apple slices dipped in honey are served alongside plenty of sweet treats. The Michael Aram Pomegranate Collection takes its inspiration from one of the most universal and ancient symbols in the world, making it a beautiful addition to your table. The fruit of the Pomegranate has been prized across the globe, across cultures and across time as a representation of life, rebirth, and renewal as well as fertility and union.

“I grew up around pomegranates – from their use as natural dyes on the antique rugs I used to crawl on as a baby to an integral ingredient in the food that I love. When I’m at my home in New Delhi, I wake each morning to the taste of fresh squeezed pomegranate juice. The colour, the smell, the delicate flavour all make it feel like a magical elixir to me.” Michael Aram

At Jenny Blanc Interiors we are proud to offer a special selection of products from the Michael Aram Pomegranate collection, perfect for gifting to loved ones at Rosh Hashanah or any time of year. These new additions to our London Showroom are available in-store or online via Trouva with worldwide shipping available.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Selection of Pomegranate Tableware

The Pomegranate Mini Pot with Spoon by Michael Aram (pictured below, centre) is a beautifully symbolic design which also serves a practical purpose – the gold-tone nickelplate lid lifts to reveal an enamel interior in a rich shade of brown which can be filled with honey, sugar or other condiments to enhance your table and create a memorable experience for your guests.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Pomegranate Tableware

The Pomegranate Plate by Michael Aram (pictured above, top left) perfectly captures the shape and texture of the inside of a pomegranate and is the perfect accompaniment to the mini pot with spoon. Handcrafted in goldtone, it makes an elegant addition to your table where it can be used to serve nibbles or as a decorative accent around the home.

The Pomegranate Catch All (pictured below) is artfully handcrafted using natural bronze. The dish undergoes a series of grinding, buffing and polishing techniques meaning each creation is unique – a work of art in its own right. The design mirrors a sliced pomegranate complete with stem and leaf and is a beautiful addition to any bedroom or bathroom where it will keep rings and other trinkets safe.

Ideas and inspiration for creating the perfect bedroom sanctuary

Jenny Blanc Blog - London Showroom Window Display

Jenny Blanc London Showroom Window DisplayToday we are very excited to unveil the new window at our London showroom! This autumn we have chosen a beautiful collection of furniture with everything you need create the perfect bedroom sanctuary – a place to recharge and relax without the intrusions of everyday life as the nights draw in. The stars of the show are a beautiful salon chair and silver dressing table, complimented by a contemporary wall covering and fabric schemes blending classic colours and on-trend textures to create two different but equally inspiring looks.

Jenny Blanc London Showroom Window Display2Jenny Blanc London Showroom Window Mood-BoardCurrent fabric trends for interiors lean towards texture including cut velvet, embroidery and other three dimensional surface decoration techniques. The salon chair in our autumn window is complemented by a gorgeous new fabric by Jane Churchill featuring a cut velvet fan motif on a cotton satin ground. The dusky pink colour will add a feminine touch to any room without being cloying – especially when paired with rich chocolate brown. Textured velvet and a woven linen and viscose blend harmonise perfectly. An embroidered cushion with a geometric design pulls the look together and adds the finishing touch.

Jenny Blanc London Showroom Window CenterpieceIn the centre of the window we have featured a contemporary wallpaper by Arte who are known for their ground-breaking, textured wall coverings. Bold wallpaper is nothing to be afraid of with a design this sophisticated – far from dominating a room, the subtle pattern and colouring will soften the space and add an element of glamour creating the perfect backdrop for your furniture and accessories. This is the perfect choice for a feature wall and is available to order by the roll.

Jenny Blanc London Showroom Window ArtifactsJenny Blanc London Showroom Window Mood-Board2Our beautiful dressing table is complemented by a triptych mirror and elegant selection of accessories. A sophisticated fabric scheme blending cool tones of champagne, cream and taupe completes the look. For the main fabric we have featured a new design by Jane Churchill which again incorporates cut velvet depicting a peacock feather on a gold ground. We balanced this eye-catching fabric with two chenille velvets which add texture and a touch of lustre.

Accessories include a table lamp with a crystal base and gold coral alongside our signature shell dish with silver plated monkey and our show stopping silver hibiscus candle holder. A buttoned footstool like the one shown here is great for softening the overall look and is a practical choice when space is tight – simply slide it underneath the dressing table when not in use!

We hope you like our autumn window – let us know what you think by leaving a comment or sending a message via our website. If you would like to order any of the fabric, wallpaper or accessories featured simply call us on +44 (0)20 8943 4144. Fabric is available to order from as little as one metre and can be shipped worldwide along with wallpaper which is available to order by the roll. If you can’t quite make up your mind, visit our showrooms and take advantage of our expertise – we’ll find the right fabric and wallpaper for you, creating a scheme you’ll love for years to come.

Jenny Blanc Visit to London Design Week 2017

Jenny Blanc

This week Jenny managed to escape to London Design Week at the Chelsea Design Centre.

The show runs from 12 – 17th March and showcases the latest fabrics, furniture, lighting and much more from the best craftsmen and design houses the UK has to offer.

Below are some of Jenny’s personal picks from this year’s show.

 

Jenny was inspired by the new Pop-up from Turnell & Gigon in collaboration with Soho Home. They created a stunning bedroom complete with an Evelyn four poster bed and bathroom using an eclectic mix of print, silk, semi sheer and velvet fabrics.

Jenny Blanc Blog - London Design Week 2017 - Art-board 1Cecelia is a simple toile that depicts a blissful and serene scene. Printed on a natural linen in a variety of stunning colourways taken from the Jean Monro palette.

As we continue into spring through to summer many collections are reflecting the colours of the seasons. Jenny was drawn to the velvets by Pierre Frey which are available in a fabulous selection of vibrant colours to complement any scheme.

Jenny Blanc Blog - London Design Week 2017 - Art-board 2

This perfect little lamp from Porta Romana (above) is ideal to brighten any space, available in different colours.

Time to get ‘Hygge’

Jenny Blanc Blog - Cosy Bedsocks

Jenny Blanc Blog - Cosy Bedsocks

As international designers it is important to be aware of emerging trends. “Hygge”- has been talked about a lot and originates from Denmark. Essentially it means creating a comforting, warm environment to enjoy the good things in life, preferably with good friends.

It simply requires being present and recognising a moment that feels so sweet, cosy, charming, special or nice that you just have to name the moment.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Meaning of HyggeSo whether it’s an evening in with friends where you’re just enjoying each other’s company, to the simple act of lighting a candle with every meal, Hygge is being aware of a good moment whether it’s normal or special. Indulging in some relaxation is all part of Hygge. At Jenny Blanc Interiors we pride ourselves in creating personalised and beautiful spaces for our clients. We currently have some gorgeous products in our West London showroom that will help you to create a Hygge home to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet with some of my favourite designers and see their new collections first hand – nothing beats touching and feeling a product and as a designer, it’s very important to see fabrics, wallcoverings and furniture on a large scale. There were some stunning offerings this year from some of our longstanding suppliers including Baker & Gray, Tamerisk, Robert Langford and Heathfield & Co. but I was also surprised to discover so many exciting new brands – many of whom we will be welcoming to our West London and Barbados showrooms over the coming weeks!

Today I would like to share a few of the things that caught my eye this year. Below you’ll find stunning fabrics, contemporary lighting to spark the imagination and one or two exciting new products which are the perfect finishing touch to give your home a little lift this autumn and are coming soon to the UK showroom! I hope you enjoy – Jenny

Jenny Writes: Thrilled to be featured in The English Home magazine again…

Jenny Blanc Blog - English Home Feature

The English Home is one of my favourite magazines and one that I really look forward to reading each month. It’s a perfect balance between seasonal inspiration and in-depth articles that I find tremendously enjoyable so I was so pleased to be featured in the August issue alongside Jane Churchill, Katharine Pooley, Joanna Wood and Nicky Haslam in an article all about the importance of details in the home.

Here’s a peek at my contribution – you can read the full article over on our website here.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Glittering Dining Room Crystal Trim

‘’Paying attention to the details can make the difference between a room which is simply nice and a room that takes your breath away. The word ‘detail’ encompasses so much – whether it’s hardware for doors or cabinetry, a beaded trim on cushions or soft furnishings, or simply the clever and thoughtful juxtaposition of colours and textures – it can be difficult to know where to start. For me, the function of a room is the natural starting point. In a grand, traditional house we added more glitter to an already glittering dining room in the form of a gorgeous crystal trim along the leading edge of the silk curtains (pictured above). These were further enhanced by a beautifully carved and gilded bespoke decorative pelmet.’’

Jenny Blanc Blog - Monochromatic Scheme

‘’In the project above we maintained a monochromatic scheme to complement the floor and intensify the drama. The large circular holdbacks [above right] provide an eye-catching contrast to the vertically striped fabric.’’

Jenny Blanc Blog - Beautiful Hardware Bespoke Furniture

‘’We love to introduce beautiful hardware to bespoke pieces of furniture old and new. These mickel-and-horn handles [right] look perfect against this walnut-and-leather bespoke desk in a chic London bachelor flat. For those looking to elevate an existing piece of furniture, changing the handles is the quickest way to a total transformation. Look for unusual materials that echo the shapes and textures in the rest of the room.’’

The Classics Collection by Colefax & Fowler

Jenny Blanc Blog - Colefax and Fowler Fabric Cushion

We have been using Colefax and Fowler’s fabrics, wallpapers and trimmings in our design projects and at the UK showroom since we first opened our doors 20 years ago and they are as popular now as ever before. Today we’re very excited to share our favourite designs from the new ‘classics’ collection which epitomise elegant but relaxed English style. All the fabrics pictured below are available to order from our UK showroom – call us on +44 (0)20 8943 3133 or better still, pop in to see us at 59 High Street, Teddington, London, TW11 8HA and let us show them to you in person and take advantage of the expert advice of our Just Rooms service.

The enduring beauty of these designs, exclusive to Colefax and Fowler, lies in the draughtsmanship of the exquisitely drawn patterns, the quality of the printing and Colefax’s unique colour palette; often offbeat, but always sophisticated, with shades of crushed raspberry, pale greens or faded greyish-blues. The resulting colours are subtle and easy to live with – ideal for contemporary interiors as well as still blending with the style of yesteryear, and encapsulating the restrained elegance forever associated with Colefax and Fowler.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Jenny Blanc End of Summer
Jenny Blanc

With August and the warmth of summer finally here in the UK it feels like the perfect time to share this light and airy idea for a beautiful breakfast room or conservatory. This pretty scheme is based around four gorgeous fabrics by Jane Churchill who is ever popular at our London showroom. The fabric pictured top right features a graceful, flowing ‘sweet angel’ vine which would look perfect with a natural rope tie back. The printed fabric in the bottom right hand corner (pictured here alongside a beautiful white wooden planter by Capital Garden Products) is the classic ‘Anouska’ design in red and green. Along with contrasting green piping it would make a gorgeous cushion for a window seat or bench – the perfect spot to sip coffee and read the papers!

Simon Oxley is one of our top choices for outdoor furniture – the Rissington pedestal table and chairs pictured bottom right would look fantastic in a soft white or pale cream paint finish. For the seat cushions we have chosen ‘Layla’ by Jane Churchill – a small scale design in green which coordinates perfectly with the other fabrics in the scheme.

The mirror sample pictured top left is an exclusive design by Jenny Blanc and handmade to order by Patrick Ireland. A stunning lantern by Vaughan in a hand painted, soft green finish would bring light to the finished room. Last but not least, I couldn’t resist adding these sweet little espresso cups by Bulgari – they’re the perfect shade of softest pink and green and the last ones currently available at our UK showroom!

Caribbean Harvest Summer Blog

By Tyra Woodroffe

The summer months are officially upon us with warmer weather and the joy of the summer harvest! During this time Barbados is being rejuvenated after the dry season with the welcomed rains of the wet season. Days very often begin sunny and bright, are punctuated by cooling showers then end with colorfully painted skies at dusk.

All the while an abundance of rich flora is springing forth, such as mangoes, Bajan ackees, avocados and sea grapes. The rains encourage a revival of these local fruits and the entirety of the island’s expanse begins to appear even more beautifully lush. The beautiful Flamboyant trees are now in full flower all over the island as if to welcome the Summer

Coupled with the jubilance of the Crop Over festival, which marks the end of the sugar cane harvest, Barbados is now teeming with energy and activity.

The festival attracts numbers of visitors to Barbados’ shores every year as it is the perfect time to experience “Bajan” culture at its best. Local music telling satirical and celebratory stories can be heard across the radio waves and is the basis for phenomenal parties and parades. A rich display of colour is exhibited throughout the festival, from our indigenous cuisine to elaborate costumes.

All a reflection of the splendor of our natural environment, therefore it is only natural that we are now more than ever inspired to find creative ways to add a dose of tropical flair to our summer décor as well! So many of our favorite suppliers have come out with collections these last few months that employ colour and motifs borrowed from the exuberance of a Caribbean climate.

The tabletop also provides a great way to inject some tropical heat into your home’s décor. Below we see how bright shades of orange, green and yellow compliment a neutral palate and a touch of warm gold adds the element of luxury.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Coralstone Pineapple Console Table

The beautiful coral stone console table pictured above was a bespoke commission for one of our Barbados design projects. We’re thrilled that it has been featured in this months The English Home magazine, as part of an article all about using natural materials in the home!

Coral stone forms the bedrock of Barbados and is mined locally – in the form of sawn blocks, a highly desirable material for use in construction as it is a very porous stone which ages to a lovely patina and absorbs the tropical heat keeping interiors cool. Many of the old houses are built from sawn coral stone blocks with more contemporary properties finished in a render of ground coral stone dust and white cement. It is a very versatile product and though very porous, it can be carved to create beautiful architectural features or unique pieces of bespoke furniture like this console table which blends seamlessly with the surrounding coral rendered walls.

Coral stone’s natural colour and texture is beautifully understated, creating the perfect backdrop for decorative accents like the stunning mirror pictured above.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Featured in The English Home Magazine

 

As part of our design work we are often asked to design and commission bespoke pieces of furniture in coral stone, using our team of skilled local artisans on the island – here are a few of our favourite designs!

The dining table pictured above is another of our bespoke designs and is supported by a base of hand carved coral stone scallop shells. A small piece of red coral is displayed in the top and this touch of colour is carried through to the cushions and tableware, creating a feeling of fun, seaside living.

Bottoms Up!

Jenny Blanc Blog - Silver Drinks Cooler

With the sun shining and the excitement of Royal Ascot and the Henley Regatta around the corner here in the UK, what better time to think about outdoor entertaining? Sharing a bottle or two of ice cold champagne in the garden with friends is one of my favourite pastimes but you can of course go further afield. Why not pack up the car and head out for a luxurious picnic? Our UK showroom has everything you need to entertain in style this summer.

The champagne cooler pictured below is made from solid pewter and is an exquisite investment piece. The delicate etching and classic shape give it a feminine feel and the unique design means you can keep your champagne flutes as cold as ice! The linen table cloth is one of our exclusive designs – the colourful English garden flowers look stunning against our brightly coloured linen napkins.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Silver Champagne Cooler

The champagne cooler pictured below has a sleek, modern shape with a leather handle which adds a slightly more masculine edge. Large enough to accommodate several bottles it looks fantastic in the centre of a round table or a kitchen island, piled high with ice and bubbles. As dusk begins to fall, pillar candles in glass hurricanes (pictured right) are perfect for creating a soft glow.

Brightly coloured paper napkins with bold patterns are a fun way to add a splash of colour to your picnic or party. Our selection of summer match boxes at our UK showroom add just the right touch of whimsy!

Fun and sun in Barbados!

Jenny Blanc Blog - Monkey Puzzle Fabric

We’ve been busy creating fun and inspirational ideas for our work in the Caribbean! With the sunshine making a much anticipated appearance again here in the UK it feels like the perfect time to share two exciting new schemes finalised this week in Barbados as part of our Just Rooms service!

Jenny Blanc Blog - Finalised Scheme in Barbados Sitting RoomThe above fabric is ‘Monkey Puzzle’ by Bennison Fabrics and is the focus of this beautiful, relaxed sitting room for casual, comfortable living by the sea. The scheme features a fun colour palette with nautical elements and quirky touches which add interest to this otherwise classic, contemporary Caribbean living room. The coffee table, media unit and side table are part of the Jenny Blanc furniture collection made locally by a team of very talented and skilled Barbadian artisans whom we are proud to have built a longstanding relationship with.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Finalised Scheme in Barbados Sitting RoomThe second scheme (pictured above) is for a very large dining and relaxing terrace overlooking the sea on the West Coast of Barbados! This scheme features sophisticated outdoor furniture including sofas, armchairs and sun loungers, all upholstered in nautical white fabric. We have created a selection of bespoke scatter cushions using 10 different fabrics in shades of aqua, white and citron – the bold mixture of patterns and textures creates a much more relaxed and less formal feel. Aqua and citron is of course a firm favourite for tropical schemes, blending perfectly with the surrounding sea, sky and sun!

Jenny Blanc Blog - Terrazzo Seating Area
Above: This image by Kirkby Design shows how a mixture of colourful cushions can add a splash of fun to a contemporary seating area.

When we choose fabrics for the tropics it’s essential that they are practical as well as beautiful. Good quality, outdoor fabrics which are UV resistant, washable and hardwearing are the perfect choice for terraces and poolside areas and are often used indoors too because of their durability.

We hope you have been inspired by today’s schemes for Barbados! If you would like more information on any of the products featured or our Just Rooms design service, please contact either the London or Barbados showroom.

Dreams do come true… celebrating our 20th Anniversary in style!

This Wednesday marks 20 years to the day that Chrissie Marshall and I opened the doors to our beautiful showroom here in West London. Help us celebrate and join us for a glass of bubbly at our London or Barbados showrooms for the rest of this month! Enjoy some party nibbles and take 20% off the price of everything in store – our treat to say thank you for all your support over the last 20 years.

When I look at how far we have come I can’t quite believe it! Our vision back then was to be a source of beautiful, original furnishings, accessories and interiors expertise where people could shop in an environment that felt like a home from home.

Jenny Blanc's Beautiful Storefront Teddington

After we opened our Teddington showroom we very quickly found ourselves designing homes for a very loyal, local client base. When those clients outgrew their West London town houses and moved out to the country, they brought us with them to create the perfect family home for this new phase of their lives.

Having Barbadian Design Director Sue Thomas-Richardson on board from the outset proved invaluable as our reputation gradually grew by word of mouth and we started designing tropical holiday homes for our clients in Barbados and other islands. With our Caribbean client base growing and Sue’s unparalleled understanding of the island, it was an easy decision to open our showroom in Barbados – a dream which came true in 2011! My inspiration was always to create the best Interior Design showroom on the island and this is certainly something we have achieved – my daughter Emma Blanc is now firmly rooted on the island and as Caribbean Director, is perfectly placed to run the showroom as well as providing a very personal link for our design clients on the island.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Barbados Showroom

Today, with five International Property Awards under our belt (including the much coveted ‘World’s Best Interior Design, Private Residence’ in 2012), two stunning lifestyle showrooms, an exclusive range of Barbados made furniture as well as our own range of home accessories, I couldn’t be happier – or busier!

The sterling silver monkey bowl pictured above is our own unique design and is one of the pieces I’m the most proud of. Using natural coconut shells, each bowl is hand made by a skilled artisan – stylish, unusual and also versatile, it represents everything we stand for.

Before we dive headfirst into the next 20 years, here’s a little look at some of my favourite moments from the journey so far!

From the Caribbean to Surrey – A Jenny Blanc Pool Party!

Jenny Blanc Blog - Sunset Looking Through Glass

With the days getting longer and brighter thoughts naturally turn towards summer and the chance to entertain by the poolside once more. Just like any room in the house, a pool comes with its own set of considerations. A well designed pool goes far beyond sunbathing and swimming – each poolside that I design always includes a BBQ area when possible and a bar for serving drinks day or night as well as comfortable seating areas for relaxed lounging. If outdoors, gazeebos for show stopping pool side dinner parties are absolutely essential! Whether the property is in the UK or the tropics, furniture must be practical as well as beautiful. For houses in the Caribbean, all materials must be suitable for a tropic marine environment as the salty air will rust anything less, not to mention the scorching heat, humidity, heavy rainfall and strong winds! Our Jenny Blanc hurricane lanterns were designed with these conditions in mind and are made from marine grade stainless steel making them well suited to the tropics! Those in the UK often want indoor pools that can be used all year round yet still retain the feeling of poolside living that is enjoyed in warmer climates. Our challenge here is to create a space that is a warm and luxurious cocoon, away from the wind and rain that may be raging outside! Today I’m very excited to share my designs for three very different poolside areas which I hope will provide some ideas and inspiration!

 

A traditional plantation style house for a busy, happy Family in Barbados

The wooden dining table and coral stone console table are designed and made exclusively by Jenny Blanc and can be supplied in a range of sizes and finishes to suit your requirements. To the right are two sun loungers by Kettal.

This grand plantation style house is owned by a large, bustling family and required plenty of areas for outdoor entertaining in this more traditional poolside environment. In addition to several outdoor dining areas we used chose sun loungers by Kettal to create areas for comfortable relaxation. The powdered wrought iron frames echo the use of this traditional material throughout the rest of the property and along with natural stone and brick floor coverings, suit the style of this traditional house perfectly. Ambient lighting throughout the pool area creates the perfect romantic poolside environment at night for relaxing, dining and entertaining!

Here we created the perfect indoor pool as part of a complete renovation project. Our client wanted it to feel like a luxurious spa but also retain the sense of water and light that outdoor pools in warmer climates benefit from. An indoor pool environment is very different to the outdoor way of life in the Caribbean – here we used coloured ambient lighting to create atmosphere at night alongside large French windows which can be opened to allow plenty of fresh air and natural light in during the day. We designed bespoke decorative glass panels set into niches along the far wall which were illuminated for maximum effect. Porta Romana shell wall lamps add a classic touch to an otherwise contemporary pool area. Furniture by Cane-Line complements the contemporary feel – the clean lines have a feeling of elegance and the padded cushions ensure comfort. The palette of neutral creams and soft aqua looks bright and fresh in natural light and under the atmospheric glow of the coloured pool lighting, helping to retain that waterside feeling.

The image above from one of our more traditional properties shows the Jenny Blanc clam shell in action once more! As we design so many pools in the Caribbean it seemed a natural step to develop our own range of towels. Available in turquoise, orange and lime green from both our Barbados and UK showrooms, the Jenny Blanc beach or pool towels are wonderfully and the bright, fresh colours can really help transform the look of an outdoor space. My clients often choose a signature colour – like the pink towels pictured above which look stunning against the lush green foliage of the garden.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s delicious dose of poolside inspiration. If you’re thinking of refreshing your pool area but are not ready to embark on a full renovation project our Just Rooms service will be able to help you choose the perfect furniture and accessories.
