Incredible villas line the shore on Barbados’s Platinum Coast, immaculately designed and outfitted with the finest finishes. There’s one private West Coast home in particular that’s been given the Jenny Blanc touch, resulting in something truly exceptional. Jenny Blanc Interiors, which after originating in London now also operates an interior design showroom on Barbados’s West Coast, has almost 20 years of experience designing homes in the tropics, and the firm’s knowledge shines in the exemplary West Coast villa which earned the distinction of “Best Interior Design, Caribbean” at the International Property Awards in Barbados in 2015.
The design is a representation of the homeowner’s preferences, yet with broad appeal. Blanc helped the homeowners, whose style leans toward the traditional, achieve their goal of something more transitional, for a look that falls between traditional and classic contemporary. “Jenny’s talent lies in the way she juxtaposes furniture, fabrics, wallpapers, and home accessories” says Emma Blanc, Jenny’s daughter who runs the Caribbean side of the business in Barbados. “The result is a unique, layered style that is eclectic and full of depth and interest.”
Jenny doesn’t fall back on her own design preferences, or rely on a small handful of suppliers or ready-made schemes, resulting in predictable, off-the-shelf designs. At the interior design showroom in Barbados, customers can take advantage of the company’s expertise and full range of interior design services, from bespoke soft furnishings or reupholstery to sourcing new furniture from some of the world’s best suppliers, including Jenny Blanc’s own furniture collection, which has been specifically developed to withstand the challenges of a tropical climate.
The showroom also offers a specially curated collection of home accessories as well as lifestyle products designed in-house. Clients can take advantage of the company’s expertise in creating custom-made furniture and objets d’art, such as the carved coral stone monkey sculptures at this luxury West Coast villa. Jenny Blanc’s clients can revel in the knowledge that their final product will not only be perfectly tailored to their needs, but exceed their expectations.
At the award-winning West Coast villa, Jenny’s careful guidance is evident in the details. Each design choice is deliberate; many features inspire pause and serve as conversation starters. The home’s spaces are pulled together in ways that reflect Jenny’s intuitiveness and talent. In the gazebo, designed with outdoor entertaining in mind, the Woodland table from the Jenny Blanc furniture collection in Iroko with a rustic fudge finish and exclusive dining chairs with patterned seafoam seat pads lend a comfortable, yet contemporary feel. In the master bedroom, with its soft, restful palette of duck-egg blue, the tiniest of details were considered, down to the tissue box and waste paper basket, hand-made to Jenny Blanc’s design, taking the palm tree motif from the room’s curtain and cushion fabric.
The home’s composition is intricate without feeling over-engineered. When one considers the creative energy that went into selecting every material, each palette, and individual design, it’s then that you realise the value Jenny Blanc Interiors has brought to this luxury West Coast villa.
