Based in Argyll, midway between Oban and Fort William, Jane is well positioned to work on design and furnishing projects throughout the West Highlands and beyond.


Jane Hartnell-Beavis returned to her native Scotland in 1989, having spent seven years in London “learning the trade”, first in the showroom of Kingcome Ltd., and latterly as Head of Design at Material Effects Ltd.

The Company’s turnover has increased steadily over the years, along with Jane’s reputation for good design, attention to detail and her friendly and personal service. Over this time, Jane has developed excellent relations with her international suppliers and local tradesmen, always on the look-out for new products, but loyal to the craftspeople she works with.

Initial consultations and estimates are FREE.

Where Jane Blanchard Design is supplying goods there is NO FEE, but there are substantial SAVINGS to be made.

Where there is no supply of goods or services, Jane charges an hourly design fee. This covers room and electrical layouts, design advice, specifications and design.

One of the most surprising aspects of Jane’s showroom, bearing in mind its rural location, is the extensive range of sample books - fabrics, wallpapers, trimmings - on display. Representing a wide variety of styles, they are all chosen to be lastingly appealing, and, of course, long-lasting. Prices on fabrics and wallpapers are approximately 15% LESS than RRP and Jane does all the measuring, drawings and estimating for soft furnishings jobs FREE.

A comprehensive products library covers everything associated with interior design - from flooring to lighting. Over the years, Jane Blanchard Design has established strong and mutually loyal relationships with an excellent team of curtain-makers, upholsterers, furniture manufacturers and decorators.
