Say Hello to Summer at Jenny Blanc…

Jenny Blanc Blog - Tropical Trip

As specialists in outdoor furniture and soft furnishings, we know the powerful role that curtains, cushions and upholstery play in transforming our clients homes. Refreshing your Caribbean home is easy – start with a visit to the Jenny Blanc showroom in St. James to view our look books and you’ll soon be brimming with inspiration. Our talented design team will help you choose your fabrics, expertly blending colours and textures to create a look that’s all you. Think of it as high fashion for the home! Then simply sit back and relax whilst we oversee the production and installation of your new soft furnishings, ready to wow guests this summer.

In need of a little inspiration? Read on…

Tropical Trip

Jenny Blanc Blog - Tropical Trip

 

We’ve paired Matthew Williamson’s Habanera print fabric with accents of teal and bright orange for a tropical look that packs a punch. Suitable for curtains and upholstery, imagine seat cushions with contrast piping or extra-large floor cushions with a teal or orange reverse. We think that this pattern, with its delicate foliage and tropical fruit, is destined to be the backdrop to both elegant dinners and wild parties this Summer.

 

Jenny Blanc Blog - Tropical Trip - Habana Fabric
Above: ‘Habanera’ by Matthew Williamson – The Cuban rhythmical dance lends its name to this toil featuring pineapples and butterflies.

 

The Dark Arts

Jenny Blanc Blog - The Dark Arts

 

Things take a turn for the dramatic with ‘Plumas’ and ‘Mariposa’ by Matthew Williamson. Two stunning fabrics that feature peacock feathers and butterflies respectively, in subtle and sophisticated tones of teal, indigo and turquoise. Darker fabrics are an ideal way to ground a paler scheme and provide a focus for the room – like the cluster of scatter pillows on the white sofa above.

 

Jenny Blanc Blog - The Dark Arts - Mariposa Silk Linen Fabric
‘Mariposa’ is the Spanish word for butterfly – this silk and linen jacquard of darting monochrome butterflies is perfectly suited to curtains or blinds.

 

Jenny Blanc Blog - The Dark Arts - Plimas Silk Viscose Fabric
‘Plumas’ gives Matthew Williamson’s signature peacock feather a fresh interpretation in a luxurious silk/viscose jacquard – a beautiful choice for full length curtains.

 

Outdoor Living Made Easy

Jenny Blanc Blog - Outdoor Living Made Easy

 

‘Talavera’ by Matthew Williamson takes its name from the town of Talavera de la Reina, located in Toledo in mainland Spain. The town is renowned for its ceramics and glazed tilework. This stunning fabric features a vibrant assortment of Mediterranean fruit, flowers and colourful birds against a restful blue and white backdrop reminiscent of provincial table linens. We think it would look stunning as cushions – we’ve chosen a hot pink accent colour. Elevate your outdoor living space further with an outdoor rug, specially made to be durable, washable and fade-resistant. Faux flowers and foliage add another layer of interest and best of all, there’s no need to water!

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 Blog - Jenny at Summer

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.

Jenny loved this new range of wallpapers celebrating African traditions and culture which has been created in collaboration between Cole & Son and Ardmore Ceramics.

A Very Merry Christmas from Jenny Blanc…

Jenny Blanc - London Showroom Christmas Window Display Image 3

Jenny Blanc Blog - Jenny Blanc Portrait
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.

Jenny Blanc - London Showroom Christmas Window Display Mood Board

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

Oriental influences at our West London showroom this autumn…

Jenny Blanc - Showroom London at Autumn Time

This autumn we have taken inspiration from a beautiful pair of antique oriental lamps for our autumn/winter window display. The lamps have a ceramic bases in stunning cerulean blue with burnished gold hand painted cherry blossom branches. These are complemented by bespoke knife pleat shades with a silk wrapped bead trim. This gorgeous colour combination is perfect for this time of year in the UK as temperatures begin to drop and we look to our interiors for warmth, comfort and a touch of luxury. Blue and burnished gold combined with other earth colours form the basis of this year’s design which includes an unusual textured wallcovering by Arte, stunning eglomise mirror and a contemporary, oriental style console table.

The Jenny Blanc tub chair is one of the most popular and versatile designs on display at our West London showroom and can be ordered in fabric of your choice. It’s currently shown in ‘Coco Tweed’ by Nobilis which is complemented by a bespoke pair of cushions, exclusive to Jenny Blanc, with an ornately embroidered border and antique trim.

The floor lamp is by Heathfield & Co. and was first shown at Decorex in September. We immediately chose it for our West London showroom because of its elegant design – perfect for transitional or more contemporary interiors. The curtain fabric by William Yewoard is reminiscent of traditional oriental china in shades of white and blue. This fabric is excellent value and works beautifully for curtains and cushions.

Finishing touches include our fabulous coloured glassware which is new to the showroom for autumn, a bespoke tasselled pouf in complementary shades of blue and gold, a fabulous pair of ceramic birds and – very important at this time of year – a variety of candles perfect for creating a soft ambient glow as the evening draws in!

Island Life: Time to get your home ready for another busy Barbados season!

As Barbadians and regular visitors to the island will know, October signals the beginning of the high season as people flock from all around the world for a dose of tropical sunshine. As we get closer to Christmas the buzz becomes tangible and for those with homes on the island, entertaining and socialising are the order of the day. The start of the season is therefore the best time to take stock of your home and perhaps make one or two upgrades before the festivities begin in earnest!

At the Jenny Blanc Barbados showroom our bespoke cushion making service is incredibly useful for those wishing to refresh bedrooms and living spaces before guests come to stay. Choose from our extensive array of indoor and outdoor fabrics and trimmings and let us do the rest of the work as we create exquisite cushions to meet any requirements, all delivered to your home in time for Christmas.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Bespoke Cushions

New lampshades are another simple way to give rooms a completely new look and you’ll be delighted at the difference a bespoke shade can make to an existing lamp. Many of the fabrics in our library can be used to create a lampshade in an array of styles – perfect for creating a focal point and adding soft, ambient light come the evening.

Jenny Blanc Blog - Inspirational Lighting

One of the most frequently used elements of a tropical home is the tableware. When guests come to stay you can be sure that leisurely breakfasts, long lunches and decadent dinner parties will be high on the agenda so it’s worth making sure that you have a dinner service that is both beautiful and practical. Our blue and turquoise ocean inspired range is the perfect combination of form and function that is perfect for casual dining or more formal occasions.

Decorex is one of my favourite events in the autumn trade show calendar and one that I look forward to with much anticipation. 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
