“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.”

“Blanchard has to be one of the best interior design companies in London if not the UK.
As a busy man who knows what he wants but is ‘time short’ and ‘ideas long’ the Blanchard team knew how to convert my dreams into reality. They instinctively knew what would work and combined creativity with sheer pragmatism. They are great at seeing the potential of a situation, clearly advising on what will work and what will not and then drawing on their research team to find exactly the right material, fabric, paint, flooring and furnishings that gave life to my unspoken and hazy vision.
The most important aspect for me was how they managed the builders and the architects so I could go to work (and sleep easy) knowing that they were pulling the whole thing together for me. Without exception the team were friendly, reliable, wonderfully warm as well as being creative, pragmatic, refreshingly challenging when I was wrong and sympathetic to my quirks.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
“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.”

“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.”

“We fell in love with our house at first sight but didn’t realise what extraordinary changes could be made to enhance its beauty, character, warmth and charm. Diana’s creativity, vision and expertise helped us to achieve far more than we ever thought possible in a 400 year-old Cotswold farm house. Blanchard took us through every step of a 6 month renovation project with skill, quality, imagination and superb attention to detail. The professionalism of the team was faultless and we fully appreciate just how much hard work went into the project management, organisation and co-ordination that resulted in completion on time. We couldn’t be happier!"
