Inspirational interiors that are elegant, imaginative and timeless. Natural refinement,
ranging from the classic to the contemporary. Materials of the highest quality, with an emphasis
on the sustainable and organic. Designs that are unique and personal to each client.
Luxurious rooms created for fine dining. Warmth of wood, accents of gilt and
platinum, radiance of sparkling glass and silver. And state of the art lighting
designed to enhance the experience.
The heart of the home, where family and friends meet to share and relax. From
traditional wood to ultra contemporary lacquer and steel, kitchens to enhance
entertaining informally with delicious food, wine and conversation.
Rooms created for tranquillity, harmony and balance. Havens of relaxation in soft, neutral
tones or warm, peaceful hues. Exquisite silk walling, handblocked wallpapers and lustrous
fabrics enhance the sense of comfort and intimacy. De-stress and sleep for a week.
Sanctuary of peace and luxury. Marble and stone, pristine sanitaryware and
immaculate bath linens. Subtle nuances of lighting to create an ambience
of wellbeing and relaxation.
“Designing a house involves a huge investment, so it makes sense
to seek the advice of a professional. Renovating my own house
was the first time I’d used an interior designer, but Diana and
I clicked instantly and I enjoyed the design process immensely.
Since then, I have worked with Blanchard on five further projects
and the team consistently deliver innovative, glamorous and
inspiring designs, with great efficiency and courtesy. It has been
a pleasure to work with the company and I would have no
hesitation in using their services on future projects.”
“We have known Diana Blanchard and her team for over 10 years,
and have worked on 4 projects together. We have been very happy
with every venture we have undertaken with them, and have
enjoyed the experience. Each time, the projects were delivered
on time, with no delays and the results exceeded our expectations.
We highly recommend Diana.”
Annie and Nicholas Jordan
“We have worked on projects with Blanchard for over ten years.
We find their approach to the design process to be innovative,
practical and extremely professional. They are a valued member
of project teams and deliver excellent design solutions to the
client. We enjoy working with them immensely.”
Director, Transformation Architects
“I have worked with Blanchard on a number of occasions.
As a project manager I have always found their ability
to integrate well with the construction team and
their emphasis on programme delivery a crucial factor
in the smooth and successful delivery of a project.”
Simon Davenport MRICS
Director, Simon Davenport Associates
“Blanchard has to be one of the best interior design companies
in London if not the UK.
Our work has been featured in many international publications
and the company is recognised as a leading player within the

Ask Diana Blanchard why she became an interior designer and the answer is simple: “Because I am passionate about design and love working with people.” Having set up her design business, Blanchard, in Primrose Hill in the depths of recession in 1991, she knew the signs were good when the business not only survived but flourished. Today, much of her work comes through word of mouth – clients are attracted to her subtle, sympathetic style, which veers between classic and contemporary depending on the project.

Designer Profile: From the early days, when she aspired to decorate a Regent’s Park house by Nash (she’s now completed three) she has established a reputation for up-market residential work, at home and across Europe. While she claims there’s no Blanchard signature style, it’s clear that clients come to her for a look of restrained luxury, incorporating natural materials, in traditional or modern contexts. She says the architecture is always her starting point, as are the classical principles of good proportion and symmetry, but ambience matters too. “Many of our clients have hectic lifestyles,” she says, “It’s my brief to create a haven of tranquillity for them.”
The ability to make individual statements and to mix antique pieces with modern counterparts creates a truly eclectic English look that is often replicated elsewhere, throughout the world.

Cricket-mad Geoff and Kylie Kendrick couldn’t believe their luck when they found an apartment that not only had a view of Lord’s but also offer a stylish place to entertain. It sits at the top of a red-brick building in the leafy environs of St. John’s Wood close to the centre of London...

BIDA member Diana Blanchard, director of Blanchard, has divided the room into specific areas and used glass, mirror and chrome for a light, modern look. The design is clean and classic yet contemporary, with plenty of storage. “The room will be warm and elegant, creating a space that gradually reveals itself,” says Diana.
The showroom displays our elegant furniture and lighting range, which can be effortlessly incorporated into both contemporary and classic interiors.
