We are so pleased to be featured in this year’s edition of ‘Ins & Outs of Barbados’ magazine with an article all about my Barbados made furniture collection! Ins & Outs of Barbados is an annual publication filled with fascinating articles about the history, culture and art of the island along with essential information for visitors such as must-see places and not-to-be-missed events.

If you’re sadly unable to pick up a copy for yourself, here are a few excerpts to whet the appetite before the magazine is available online later in the year.

‘Jenny Blanc’s inspiring showroom in St.James features a host of enticing, original products for the home and offers an unbeatable range of services to help you create beautiful interiors. The full design service, run from their West London studio, is underpinned by their many years of experience of designing houses in the Caribbean and has access to the most exquisite collections of fabrics and furnishings available internationally.’

Jenny Blanc Blog - Grand Master Bedroom of Best Interior Design Award Barbados

‘As part of their full interior design service Jenny Blanc has created a range of mahogany furniture inspired by the rich heritage of Barbados and made by joiners on the island. Barbados mahogany was abundant when the island was first settled by Europeans. Used by the settlers as the main material for construction, fuel for early sugar cane factories, boat building and furniture, only small groves now remain. Furniture made from this hardwood is prized for it’s durability, its resistance to termites, its superb quality and beautiful reddish brown colour.’

Jenny Blanc Blog - Bespoke Bar Made From Barbados Mahogany

‘Jenny Blanc interiors has revisited historic Barbadian furniture styles with their designs for beautiful mahogany and cane armchairs, elegant mahogany and marble coffee tables and romantic four poster beds with matching dressing tables. Outstanding pieces – made from rarely available Barbados mahogany – such as a bar with painted panels featuring the local green monkeys, have been designed by Jenny Blanc and are made locally by talented artisans. This beautiful mahogany furniture, with it’s reflections of an earlier cultural heritage and style, adds depth and character to contemporary interiors and contributes influences of an original plantation house.’

I’m so thrilled to announce that Jenny Blanc interiors have been presented with a 5 – Star award for the interior design of a beautiful family residence in Apes Hill, Barbados at this year’s International Property Awards held at the Hilton Hotel Barbados on Friday 23rd October!
This was one of my favourite projects to date and it was an absolute pleasure to work with our clients to create this very special family home. From the very first meeting our client’s dreams were for a house full of light with a feeling of Caribbean elegance and tropical influences. To meet their aspirations, Design Director Sue Thomas-Richardson and I designed living areas each with its own character but which flowed one into the other linked by a harmonious colour palette of cool subtle tones with punches of colour.

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.
